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 attendance, behaviour and outcomes in school at KS4 and KS5. Having 2 very small children means that I have taking a step away from the classroom since end of April to spend more time with my family but want to continue to help support and motivate students to achieve within my subject area.

I graduated 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) all from Cambridge University and my BSc Honours in Biology from University of Dundee. I have been an AQA examiner for GCSE Biology for over 5 years and am happy to tutor all exam boards.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have experience in teaching (and tutoring) Years 7-11 in all sciences - Biology, Chemistry, Physics. I offer GCSE and iGCSE tutoring in Biology, as well as the combined science GCSE. I am an AQA examiner for GCSE Biology so have vast experience on how to support students with exam technique although I am happy to support with all exam boards.
My specialism is in Biology, and I teach and tutor Biology AS and A level, as well as for the International Baccalaureate (IB). I also have vast experience as an extended essay supervisor and can support with EPQ.

I have experience in tutoring failing students to help them pass their exams, with quite a few achieving above average grades.I can also support high achieving students to maximise their answers to achieve the highest grades. Most of my tutees achieve, on average, two grade boundaries above their predicted grades. I also have helped more successful students achieve the high grades needed to gain acceptance into some of the world`s top universities.
