Information about Christine

I am a fully qualified and experienced Science teacher, and former Director of Student Progress, having taught for over 16 years in the classroom all ages and abilities from KS3 up to A level/IB Biology. I have mentored and tutored many students to improve their confidence, attendance and outcomes.

I graduated from University of Cambridge with my Masters in Education looking at student self concept and academic emotions linked to learning (2014), Postgraduate Certificate of Professional study in restorative conflict in schools (2011) and Postgraduate certificate in education (2007) Secondary Science. I also completed my BSc Honours in Biology (2:1) from University of Dundee (2006). I have been an AQA examiner for GCSE Biology for over 7 years and tutor all exam boards.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have vast experience in teaching (and tutoring) students from Year 7 to 11 in all sciences, therefore I can offer tutoring for ALL exam boards at KS3, GCSE/iGCSE and A Level. My specialism is Biology, and I have taught Biology AS and A level for 16 years, as well as the international Baccalaureate (IB) for 11 years. As a Director of Student Progress I have worked with students of all abilities and have supported a number of failing students to improve their subject knowledge in science as well as rebuilding their confidence and motivation towards their academic studies and progress in other subject areas.

I am very confident to tutor students of all ability and have an outstanding record of my students achieving the highest grades. My last GCSE examined class of 31 students completing their Triple Biology, over 50% of them achieved a 9 with 100% achieving a 7 or higher. Every student who I work with has improved their scores in science and that comes from me getting to know them as individuals and working with their specific needs.

Christine has been a wonderful tutor and I am happy to recommend her. She is well organised, supportive and patient. What my daughter likes most about Christine is that she is friendly and very knowledgeable. Thank you.

Christine is brilliant with our daughter, who she is teaching Chemistry and Biology. She`s been flexible, kind, knowledgeable and has really built our daughter`s confidence as she prepares for her Year 11 exams. Our daughter is now far better prepared for the summer and understands how to write her answers to get the best possible marks. We`re really grateful to her and would recommend her to anyone looking for a science tutor for GCSE.

Christine was brilliant with Ben, who admitted that Physics wasn`t his favourite, but Christine actually got him really engaged and he learnt a lot. No mean feat and we strongly recommend her.

We approached Christine to tutor Lois specifically for her GCSE`s in all 3 science subjects. Lois had been finding the sciences a challenge at school. Christine`s refreshing and thorough approach to tutoring Lois through these subjects, not only took her from a foundation paper (mocks) to a higher paper in her actual GCSE`s exams but provided Lois with a newfound confidence that resonated clearing into her other subjects. We sincerely cant thank Christine enough.

Tutors Response :

Thank you. It was a pleasure to tutor Lois. It was really great to see her confidence grow in her subject knowledge and her approach to exam questions. I look forward to hearing how she has done in her exam in August.
