Information about Emma-louise

I’m a fully qualifed secondary science teacher, currently working in a high attaining school in Stockport. I’ve been teaching since 2015, having studied both Biology and Chemistry at MMU before gaining my PGCE.

I’m passionate about Biology, particularly microbiology and genetics, but love topics from across all sciences. Having studied both Chemistry and Biology at MMU, I can easily make links between the sciences and help students to understand the underpinning concepts that are important for all areas of science.

I’m also a qualified examiner for Edexcel, which allows me to improve students exam techniques whilst maintaining their understanding of key concepts and core practicals. Having insight into the increased demand of the new specifications and the application of mark schemes, marking allows me to highlight common mistakes and misconceptions with students so that maximum attainment is achieved in formal examinations.

I pride myself on using a range of materials that allow students to learn and most importantly apply their knowledge on different ways. This, I believe, gives them the best possible opportunity to succeed in both internal and external assessments.

Experience: I have taught all 3 sciences since 2015, meaning I have experience of teaching to the Edexcel, AQA and OCR exam specifications at GCSE. I am also familiar with KS3 schemes of work and can effectively tailor tutoring to the needs of the student.

Over the last few years, since the introduction of the new exam series, my students been extremely successful, regardless or ability or learning needs, with many choosing to go and study science at a higher level.

I have been a private tutor for 4 years, in which time my tutees have been equally successfully, with all achieving grades between 9-5 on their final GCSE’s. For one, this was a 30 - 35% improvement from their Yr 10 mocks to final GCSE grades. Private tutees have, on average, gained 2 extra grades as a result of the support I offer. Some students have gone onto study Biology at A - Level and also at degree level.

I am also a fully qualified Edexcel Examiner and completed training for the introduction of the new specification exams in 17/18.
