Information about Nerys

Hello, I`m a fully qualified PGCE Biology teacher who specialises in Biology A Level. I am also experienced in teaching GCSE Biology as well as adult learner courses such as Access Biology. I have experience with the following exam boards: WJEC/Eduqas, Edexcel, AQA and CIE (Cambridge International).

2021 exam cycle I have had several students obtain A* in Biology A level with them going onto study at top universities.

Biology is a tough subject and I believe in making this fully accessible for my students. Achieving highly in Biology requires a combination of hard work by the student, excellent knowledge and strong exam technique. Being an examiner I believe in providing the best exam training needed to help you reach the best possible grade!

As a tutor I will be here to aid your learning e.g. clarify and go over things misunderstood/missed in class and to help you practice past paper questions. Particularly application questions which are challenging.

I also have experience in EPQ, UCAS statements and other science courses.
For EPQ`s I can review projects, provide feedback to help improve. Please note I am not able to act as an official supervisor - you will need to be enrolled with an institution to undertake the EPQ qualification

I am currently only providing online sessions, which are all completed through zoom. These are very much like an in person session, if not better. I use powerpoints, animations and an online white board to teach. The benefit of this is that I am able to reach students further afield, so please feel free to contact me if you are outside of my area.

Bookings - If you are interested in booking with me please contact me through the tutor hunt messaging system. Please inform me of the level (e.g. GCSE, A Level) and exam board you/your child is studying with and I will reply asap. Bookings are made on a recurring weekly basis but these can be altered by me or you.

First session: Includes several assessments for me to gauge ability, a chat about current status in Biology and aims/goals of the tuition sessions.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Availability: Please contact for availability.

PLEASE READ - Missed Sessions and Cancellations

Missed sessions with less than 24 hours notice will be charged for. Registered tutor hunt account holders receive reminders via text for the session, one text 24 hours before and one text 1 hour before the session. Due to high demand it is not fair to retain slots, when other students could benefit from them. If there are truly extenuating circumstances, where you could not provide more than 24 hours notice then I will assess whether the charge should go ahead.

Tutor hunt gives the option of weekly or fortnightly schedules. If you want one off sessions then you need to select this upon registration.

2 consecutively cancelled lessons will lead to automatic schedule deletion and the slot will be opened up to other students.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have been a qualified science and Biology teacher since 2013. Since that time I have taught a range of courses including A level Biology, GCSE Biology, A level Applied Science, Access to higher education Biology and GCSE Maths. I have been an A level Biology lecturer in several FE colleges. I am experienced with a range of exam boards including AQA, OCR, Edexcel, WJEC/Eduqas and Cambridge International.

I have been an examiner with Cambridge Assessment for over 5 years and have examined A level Biology papers for Cambridge International and OCR and GCSE Biology papers for Pearson Edexcel. I am a team leader on one of these papers. This has provided me with the necessary experience to help students master Biology exam technique.
