Information about Becky
Adopting a friendly and enthusiastic approach that caters for an individuals needs, I am passionate about helping others develop an understanding and excel in science subjects which are often perceived as difficult.
I have significant experience of working with students across Key stages 3-5 in a school setting and privately. I work with students on a 1-2-1 basis to provide tailored support and I have successfully tutored a large number of students ensuring they are able to reach their full potential in final examinations.
Availability: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 4pm 8pm
Limited availability during the day (please ask if interested)
***COVID-19 UPDATE - March 2021***
I have restarted face to face tutorials, but to do this in the safest way possible the following ways of working will need to be implemented during sessions:
Both myself and the student should wear a facemask/covering during the tutorial.
The student should wash their hands before the tutorial and afterwards (as will I) and I will also bring hand sanitiser.
The room should be well ventilated.
We will sit side by side at least 1 metre apart, but I appreciate 2 metres would make it difficult for us to both see what we are working on.
Whilst I will continue to provide resources and we will use whiteboards that I will regularly clean, I would like the student to bring their own pencil case with the usual things in (including coloured pens, ruler and calculator) to help minimise sharing.
If anyone in the family has Covid-19 symptoms please cancel the tutorial however short notice, as will I if I become symptomatic or have to self-isolate. There will be no charge for cancelled sessions.
Willing to travel: 2 miles
Experience: I have a strong scientific background with a degree and PhD in chemistry and I have worked extensively in the Pharmaceutical industry. I have a deep understanding for my subject and its application.
Within the last 10 years, my focus has switched to science education and I have significant experience of working with students in a school setting and on a one-to-one basis as a private tutor.
The specifications I tutor are:
GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Combined Science (Trilogy) - AQA
GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Combined Science - Edexcel
A level Chemistry - AQA, OCR

Feedback For Becky (3)
Dr Becky has made my son feel a lot more confident in a relatively short period of time. He is now happy to attempt challenging questions with his A Level chemistry. He enjoys the lessons with Dr Becky as she explains things in a way he finds easy to understand. I would definitely recommend her.
Dr Becky is a great tutor. My kids are really impressed with her teaching methods. She is very interested in them and provides me with regular feedback about their progress.
Excellent tutor , my son has improved in confidence and understanding in his Alevel chemistry
