Experience: I have been a science teacher for over 10 years teaching science to all year groups KS3, KS4 (includug GCSE) and KS5 (AS/A`level Chemistry and IB). I have taught a number of specifications/exam boards so I am able to adapt my teaching tools to fit any specification.
I am also experienced in teaching pupils of all abilities. I mark exam scri pts for exam boards so I have the advantage of preparing my tutees for exams from an examiners perspective as well as a classroom teacher.

I adapt my tutoring to fit each tutee`s personality and ability and specific academic need. I accomplish this by being approachable and ensuring that the pupil feels comfortable in our tuition session right from the on-set. It is important that they are comfortable enough to express his/her areas of difficulties/concerns if he/she is aware of it.
Having been a whole class teacher for a number of years, I am able to understand pupils quickly and easily which enables me to adapt my lesson to suit the pupil.

My tuition lessons strategies, tools and resources vary depending on the topic. It comprises of the use of past question papers, online activities, learning games (such as matching games etc) and using everyday experiences to reinforce new ideas. These tools are by no means exhaustive. I constantly attend training sessions (CPD) to update myself on new tools, strategies and resources. Nevertheless, I do not allow the new tools to overshadow the traditional methods that may be more effective with particular tutees.
In addition, my research and industrial experience equips me with the tools to teach the exam classes, using real-life everyday examples and experiences. I am also able to use unique teaching tools that are not always available to all teaching staff.

I am a motivated, determined and hardworking professional tutor willing to provide my tutee with all the skills he/she needs to succeed (our common aim).

Dr Macba is an excellent tutor. My son has only being with her for about 2 months and has improved tremendously in his 3 science subjects and got an A* in his recent assessment in Chemistry. I will definitely recommend Dr Macba.

Macba is a fantastic tutor - she’s very clear in her explanations and very well prepared for the lessons. My son has really enjoyed his lessons with her and learnt so much - she has a very pleasant and kind way of teaching that brought the best out in my son. I highly recommend her.

Dr Macba was well prepared when coming to lessons. She took her time and taught the topics in depth, as well as bringing practice questions to support my learning. She is kind and friendly which makes learning much easier.

Feedback from my daughter who is studying A Level Chemistry has been extremely positive. She has found Macba very supportive and understanding, her teaching style has suited our daughter very well and helped to increase her confidence in the subject and exam technique.

As parents we were pleased that Macbe asked a number of questions before the first session to ensure value could be achieved from the outset. We have tried two other tutors who were not to the same standard we have now experienced.

My daughter was finding Chemistry difficult given the jump from GCSE to A Level. As a consequence she was starting to lose interest in the subject and there was a noticeable dip in her performance. I cant believe the enthusiasm that my daughter is now showing since her first session with Macba. We agreed on a block session during the school holidays, which has worked better for us then a weekly programme as we wanted to accelerate the learning. Macba definitely has a range of tools and resources to make chemistry fun. She explains complex concepts in a way my daughter was able to grasp. The time went by so quickly that my daughter didn`t even notice the half day was fully spent She has come away with a renewed confidence and is now so much more motivated. I fully recommend Macba, its very true that a good teacher really can make the difference!!

Macba has been an excellent tutor for my daughter, giving her both encouragement and good exam advice. Often, it`s the relationship that makes the difference and Macba is making a huge effort in our last bit of revision before the GCSE exams. Even when my daughter doesn`t have a clear plan, she knows what needs to be covered and does her best for her.
