Information about Lubna

I am a fully qualified Science teacher with a specialism in Biology. I am passionate about helping others achieve their academic goals in a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment.

I studied Biomaterials Science at the University of Birmingham. Later, I pursued a Master`s in Infection and Immunity at the University of Leicester for which I was awarded the best student prize. I completed my PGCE from the University of Warwick and undertook a master`s level project on misconceptions in science.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: Teaching experience
Collectively, I have 18 years of experience tutoring face to face and online. Additionally, I have worked in schools and colleges across the West Midlands for the past 10 years. I have taught GCSE Science, BTEC Applied Science, A-level Biology and A-level Chemistry, covering the OCR, AQA and Edexcel specifications. In my position as the Head of Department I coordinated and delivered study skills sessions which included note taking and memory techniques to boost the performance of my students. I have been monitored by OCR for the practical endorsement for which I received positive feedback. Over the years I have helped students achieve or exceed their target grade.

Tutoring approach
I have a holistic approach to teaching ensuring students make rapid progress. My aim is to give my students the skills and tools to become confident, independent and reflective learners. Many students fail to perform in examinations to their best ability , despite putting in many hours of revise. My lessons focus on providing effective exam techniques and the key points required by the examination board. Each lesson is tailored entirely to the individual learners` requirements.

Lubna has helped my son immensely to get a grip on his understanding of Biology A Level. She is kind , supportive , organized , and teaches in a wonderful fun style . I am so grateful for the opportunity she has provided to my son to turn around his learning style and exam technique . He has even become more organized himself , which is a little miracle in itself . Lubna is definitely a 5 star Tutor . Thank you !

Lubna is a very understanding and patient tutor and has worked to improve my daughters confidence in her work and has been able to provide her critical revision skills for her to be able to reach her full potential.

Lubna is very thorough and organised, in addition to inspiring a real passion for the subject at A level (and setting plenty of homework to consolidate learning and preparing for exam questions). Highly recommended.
