Information about Francesca
I am a fully qualified Science teacher currently working at [contact detail removed] a successful secondary school in Doncaster teaching GCSE Biology and AS Level Biology. I am 31 years old and hold a 1st class BSc degree from the University of Hull.
I am now in my eighth year of teaching, I qualified as an outstanding teacher through the Graduate Teacher Programme which provided me with hands on experience of teaching in a Secondary School. I like one to one tuition as the progress made is exemplified and much more rapid.
My approach to tutoring involves exam practice and very targeted revision with an emphasis on building Biology content, confidence and application of knowledge skills through the structured use of past exam questions. Course content will also be re-taught if required.
I also ask open ended questions to probe knowledge and current understanding and often ask questions in a manner which makes it easy to eliminate misconceptions.
Availability: Weekends anytime
After school/ evening
I also offer online tuition.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: Last year i tutored 3 AS sixth form students, they all achieved grade A-C in AS Level Biology & 3 GCSE Biology students who achieved grades A*-B, all exceeding their target grades.
Please see my excellent feedback from previous tutees.
Feedback For Francesca (5)
Extremely friendly and information given is very useful for the exams.
Francesca has been a great help to my daughter and I would definitely recommend her
My Daughter got an A* with Francesca`s brilliant tutoring! We couldn`t have asked for a better teacher, thank you so much !!!
Francesca is very friendly and easy to get along with. She brings great resources and we go through questions based on past papers which I have found really useful. She is very patient when I don`t understand something and I couldn`t recommend her highly enough.
The step from GCSE to A Level was a difficult one but Francesca has already helped me to understand some parts I was finding difficult.
Francesca is flexible with her tutoring and will work on what I want to work on and always comes prepared with work for the session, hand-outs and information for me to work on independently between sessions.
I will continue to work hard and, with Francesca`s support, I am confident I can achieve the grade I need to progress with my studies in Biology.
