Information about Aine

I am an experienced Science teacher, tutor, and former Head of Science, having taught for over 10 years in the classroom, and tutored for over 3 years. I now have three very young children and so have taken a hiatus from the classroom (since 2017) to care for my children full time. However I enjoy keeping up to date with the latest curricula and putting my vast experience to use by tutoring students most evenings and saturdays when my husband is home.

I also offer group tutoring which is not shown in the course options (no drop down box was applicable), which has the added benefits of peer support, enthusiastic scientific discourse, and motivation for the students enrolled. Not to mention, this is at a lower rate than one-to-one sessions, so good value for money.

Availability: Currently my schedule is completely full, however I do run a group session for A-level Biology students every Thursday evening, so please reach out if you would like more information on this.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I have experience in teaching (and tutoring) Years 7-11 in all sciences - Biology, Chemistry, Physics. I offer GCSE and iGCSE tutoring in all three subjects, as well as the combined science GCSE.
My specialism is in Biology, and I teach and tutor Biology AS and A level, as well as for the International Baccalaureate.

I have experience in tutoring failing students to help them pass their exams, with quite a few achieving average or above average 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.

Aine taught my daughter A level biology online during the lockdown. Her style of teaching immensely benefitted my daughter. Very well planned and organised lessons. Thank you very much for all the help.

We have tried the group lesson and it didn`t work for us.

Tutors Response :

Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for your feedback. I`m sorry that you were not happy with the group session. The nature of group sessions does mean that it is difficult to please everyone or tailor it specifically to everyone`s individual needs at all times. I do encourage students to have open and honest dialogues with me regarding what they want to get out of each session. This is especially important in the group sessions when I can then ensure that collectively, the sessions focus on what the group find most useful. I know that your daughter wanted plenty of exam practice - this was sometimes tricky to do within the context of the group sessions due to me having to take the needs of the rest of the group into account, however I did provide plenty of practice exam questions via email at the end of each session. I was also more than happy to communicate via email or text to help support students in their individual studies between each session.
Your daughter is a bright student, I am sorry that she did not find this format as useful as she would have hoped, and I wish her well in her future studies.

Kind regards,
Áine

Our daughter has only had a few lessons Aine in preparation for her GCSE Chemistry and an entrance exam to Sixth Form College. But even in this short period of time we have noticed her confidence in this subject has improved significantly. Her class mates now call her Chemistry Guru. Aine always encourages our daughter to do her best and we are very grateful for her hard work. Karina

Aine has been helping my son in his GCSE Biology (Yr.10) lessons the past couple of months. She is punctual, organised and most importantly, very clear in her teaching method.My son definitely recommends Aine as a tutor.

Although we have only had Aine for a couple of months she has made a big difference to our sons undetstanding of chemistry. Would highly recommend her
