Information about Connie

** Limited after-school availability **

I am a fully qualified (PGCE and QTS) science teacher with years of experience working in London schools. I have also previously worked as a GCSE examiner.

I teach biology, chemistry and physics to GCSE and teach biology to A-level.

I teach all my lessons online, with lessons prepared specifically for each individual student.

The best way to build confidence and increase grades is to help students attain marks in assessments. I focus a lot on exam technique, working on practice questions with students to observe trends in the questions asked and mark schemes. Working in this way means students understand how examiners expect them to answer certain questions so that they don’t have to guess in the exam.

I also focus on building logical and problem-solving skills in students, so that students are able to solve any problem that they encounter in science and outside of the science curriculum. I also ensure to work on maths skills, as these make up a large part of physics exams but are also needed in biology and chemistry.

I recently helped a student go from a 5 to a 9 in their GCSE science assessments in just 8 tutoring sessions.

* Personal statements * I have been working as a freelance editor and coach for personal statement and CV writing for over 4 years. I have helped students secure interviews at a number of prestigious universities across the UK, including UCL, LSE, and Oxford University. I also do coaching for interviews, including for biology related Oxbridge interviews.

* Extended Project Qualification * I struggled to write essays as a student because I didn`t have the correct guidance. I had one tutoring session which focused on essay writing for A level politics which took my grade from a D to an A*. Following this session, I never received below a first class in any essay I wrote at university. I am now looking to do the same for other students, by helping them understand how to write an outstanding essay, to help them achieve a good grade on the EPQ but also to help them at university and beyond.

Availability: I am available Monday to Friday in the daytime, afternoons, and in the evenings. I am available all day during the school holidays.

I teach adhoc weekend lessons, especially in the lead up to exams.

Willing to travel: 50 miles

Experience: I have been a teacher in London for a number of years, teaching biology, chemistry and physics to GCSE level and biology to A-level. I have a PGCE in secondary science teaching.

Prior to becoming a science teacher, I gained my TEFL qualification and have taught English to students from 4 years of age to adults, both online and in person abroad.

I have now been working online for some time as a science and Spanish tutor.

Connie is a great teacher. Easy to communicate with on this platform. But was was not a great fit for my daughter.

Connie helped my daughter with some material that was being poorly taught (due to teacher shortages at her state school - thanks to Government pay cuts) during her lower sixth-form A-level biology studies. Even though the exam board is not one used by most schools, Connie covered the material comprehensively and professionally. My daughter is looking forward to have more tutoring from her in the upper sixth.

Connie has been tutoring Biology A level for my daughter over the last 9 months and she is very happy with how it is going. Connie structures and prepares the lessons very well and accommodates to the speed of learning needed. My daughter has been gaining progressive confidence with the subject and hopefully will achieve the grades she requires for her further undergraduate education in September. I would strongly recommend her.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your kind feedback. I have really enjoyed my lessons with your daughter.

Connie has helped with my GCSE Biology and Chemistry over the holidays following mocks that I was disappointed with. All the lessons were very organised and she took time to find out what topics I wanted to work on and also topics that I was weak in. She was very helpful and patient with explanations. We worked on past questions which was incredibly helpful to see where I was dropping marks.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your kind feedback. I look forward to our next lot of sessions

Connie has been providing excellent tutoring in Science (Chemistry & Biology) to our son, who will be taking his iGCSEs in the summer of 2023. He has regular weekly lessons with Connie: she is well-prepared, efficient with time and flexible to our son`s needs - be them specific to a sub-topic or general. Connie was particularly helpful during the recent half-term break, where she was able to provide further tailored lessons ahead of his mock exams and pro-actively sought sub-topic / revision information ahead of those lessons. Without hesitation, we would absolutely recommend Connie as a tutor. Thank you, Connie!

Tutors Response :

Thank you for your kind feedback. I am excited to see the progress that we can make together this year.

Connie is well organised and engaging of my son. She ensures the tutee completely understands the topic and provides valuable feedback. She quickly identified my son`s strengths and weaknesses and goes the extra mile to help her student. She competently covers all 3 sciences and asks relevant questions to keep the interest in the topic. We are delighted to have started working with Connie and look forward to seeing continued progress with our son.

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for your kind words. It is such a pleasure to work with D and I am excited to continue working with him.
