Information about Claire
I am a fully qualified Science teacher (Biology specialism) with over 15 years of experience, both in the classroom and as a tutor. I have been Head of Biology since 2008 and have taught a wide range of students both AS and A2 Biology and G.C.S.E Biology. I am familiar with a wide range of specifications.
Availability: I am available most weekday evenings, at the weekend and during the daytime in the school holidays.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: As a Biology graduate, I am passionate about my subject in a way that helps to motivate and inspire students of all abilities. I have tutored Key Stage 3, GCSE and A Level students including an Oxbridge candidate who has gone on to study medicine at Cambridge. My goal as a tutor is to help students both reach for and fulfil their potential. I carefully tailor each session to the needs of the individual, thereby boosting their confidence and so enabling them to achieve their academic goals. Seeing students grow in confidence and getting the results they deserve is a very rewarding experience and I know that one to one support makes that difference.
Feedback For Claire (4)
Claire is an excellent tutor for my daughter, who has received a certificate for `Most Improved Student` in Biology at school since working with Claire! The focus on exam technique and how to interpret exam questions is invaluable.
Claire is an excellent tutor who has really helped with my Biology A level studies. We agree the topics to be covered in our next session and Claire is always prepared with materials. Claire is also very flexible with her time and provides a really nice atmosphere in which to learn. I really appreciate what she is doing to help me.
Claire is great. She explains things simply, provides lots of email back up and really knows her subject. My son (16) is very happy when he has had a tutor session with her.
Claire has been extremely patient and helpful in explaining biological concepts to Jack, ensuring that he understands them and then consolidating. I would highly recommend Claire.
