I am an external examiner for Edexcel Examination Board. As an examiner I have an invaluable insight into examination practice, marking and examination technique.
I relish the interaction involved in one to one teaching and have left my post as a Grammar School teacher to pursue this career path on a full time basis.

I have taught in mixed schools, single sex schools (both boys and girls) and a Grammar School.
I have consistently been graded by Ofsted as `good to outstanding` and my excellence was acknowledged by being selected for Tipping the Top which is an initiative whereby outstanding teachers share best practice strategies in affiliated schools.

Early days after only 2 sessions but we are really encouraged and planning a longer term commitment with Nicola. Very approachable and our daughter enjoys sessions
Nic has proved to be a super tutor. We started with Biology but now we also do Chemistry. We see her every week and my son is improving in confidence and knowledge.
We are really pleased with the progress our daughter is making with her GCSE Biology studies since Nicola became her tutor.
