Information about Caroline

I tutor biology, chemistry and physics to GCSE and biology to AS and A level.I am a qualified and experienced teacher offering professional GCSE science tuition and A level biology tuition for students in Thame and the surrounding area.I supply supportive, personalised tuition at my home in a relaxed environment. I teach home-educated students or school students requiring additional support to achieve their potential. My students have all grown in confidence and have achieved impressive results. This summer one of my students achieved an A grade having obtained a C grade the previous year before tutoring began. Another student has gained sufficient confidence in her scientific ability to rejoin the science lessons which she was struggling to attend. I have many positive testimonials e.g this from a year 11 parent:. `My son`s level of confidence and understanding have increased dramatically and he enthusiastically discusses the sessions he has with Caroline, wishing he had a teacher like her for every subject! We thoroughly recommend her tutoring skills` and `Caroline worked hard to support R to build her confidence and study techniques. With her guidance there was a great success that helped R achieve a grade she never thought possible. There was also a huge knock on impact on her other subjects. Her confidence to structure her revision and approach exams was transforming.` 

I have a current enhanced Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

Availability: Daytime and evenings and during school holidays. Pupils can attend weekly and/or for intensive revision sessions.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I’m a qualified teacher with an honours degree (2:1) in Applied Science, a PhD in physiology and have 3 years experience teaching in secondary schools in Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire and nearly 4 years as a tutor.
I have excellent subject knowledge with a proven ability to communicate effectively across a wide range of abilities.  I cover subject knowledge, concepts, study skills, revision skills, practical write-ups and exam techniques.
Before qualifying as a teacher in 2012, I was a teaching assistant for 3 years. I mainly supported students in maths and science lessons so I have a good understanding of the wider curriculum, pupil needs and of how schools work. Prior to that I worked for Unilever as a research scientist so I also have experience of working in the science industry. I keep up-to-date with science and I am passionate about the subject. I have a lot of experience with children having brought up 2 boys. I am one of the members of staff who accompanied 18 Lord Williams’s 6th formers to Borneo in 2017 for a 3 week expedition. I regularly cover science lessons at Lord Williams’s School. I am a qualified first aider.

My 15 year old son is enjoying the lessons with Caroline. He says he learnt more in one lesson than a whole year at school :-) I thought he will be making a big fuss about having to go to a tutor every week but hasn`t complained once!

Thanks Caroline

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your kind words. I`m enjoying working with your son.

Caroline has helped our son reach his potential and achieve a good GCSE grade in Combined Science (higher level) enabling him to progress to his options for the sixth form. He found her to be patient, informative, and able to use various techniques to assist in his learning especially in areas he found difficult. We have no doubt that Caroline was instrumental in his success and hope to enlist her help with A level Biology!

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your kind words. I am so pleased that he achieved the grades he was hoping for. Looking forward to seeing you again!
