Hi, I am a Special Needs, Science and Maths teacher living in Worthing who loves teaching. I have been a Science teacher in Chichester, at one at the 6 top West Sussex schools on the current league tables, for the last 6 years, but have been doing tutoring full time since Easter 2014.
I have been teaching for many years and am very good at explaining difficult concepts to my students. I am patient, flexible and creative in my explanations, trying to link difficult concepts to our daily lives to make it easier to understand. I know the syllabus well and also know which parts trip students up and need extra input.
I have tutees from 8 year olds to A-level Science students, and have also helped mature students prepare for Entry Exams and Fundamental Maths courses.
I have done a Chemistry Enhancement Course with Southampton University in 2013.
I have been marking GCSE and iGCSE Physics Exam Papers since July 2014, so I know what the Examiners are looking for during assessments and can help you to reach your target.
I am committed to improving your marks and flexible.
I can also help to improve your child`s handwriting.
let`s start today.
The exams are on the way!
Availability: Monday to Friday 9:30 to 18:30. I currently have quite a few tutoring time slots available and am also happy to do diagnostic tests and catch up sessions before the term gets into full swing. Drop me a line and I will see where I can fit you in.
I do not normally tutor after 6:30 pm or over weekends.
I also run catch up sessions during half terms and holidays.
I am happy to do combined Maths lessons with different siblings if you have 2 children that need Maths help.
I can tutor in the comfort of your home for a small travel fee or at my house in Lancing.
I am happy to do 2 hour time slots to make the travelling worth while. Drop me a line to make arrangements.
Willing to travel: 12 miles
Experience: I have been teaching Science and Maths to 10 to 22 year old for about 20 years now. I have been a private tutor for a couple of years and love it!
I currently have several tutees and they are making great progress. One mum wrote `My son said the tutor sessions were amazing. We just wish we have started earlier!`
We have a total of
review(s) for Babette.
Babette has been amazing- she soon tracked down the missing links in our 13 year olds maths knowledge and has been teaching him in a fun, engaging and thorough way. He actually enjoys the lessons immensely and we are so grateful that she will give him confidence in his school work. She is incredibly organised and sets sensible tasks between lessons that make learning fun and keeps him motivated. Thank you Babette!
Tutors Response :
Your son is a pleasure to teach and a hard worker.
My daughter has only had two lessons but we are impressed so far! Babette is very easy to like and clearly knowledgeable.
Babette is being a great help to both our daughters, especially with our daughter who is about to sit her GCSE.
Babette is proving to be an excellent find, my Daughter is doing much better with her maths and science.
Mrs. Babette has been the most helpful and we are very glad to have the opportunity to have tutorial with her. I would recommend Mrs Babette as she has a great understanding of child psychology and exceptionally knowledgable in her area. We couldn`t thank her enough.
Very please so far with Babette. She is very understanding with the problems my daughter is having with her studies and has helped tremendously. Would defiantly recommend her.
My son made really good progress with Babette. He really enjoyed his sessions with her. She was very patient and had a good way of making maths fun.
Tutors Response :
Thank you for the kind words, I trust he is doing well!
We would thoroughly recommend Babette as a tutor - having worked with our son in the lead up to his first GCSE science exams in year 10 we feel that he has benefitted hugely from her expertise and grown in confidence. He says "she explains everything really well and doesn`t make me feel awkward about not knowing things". We also found Babette to be very flexible and happy to do extra days in the lead up to the exams as well as make changes when we have had other commitments/holidays etc.
Babette is an excellent tutor and I have certainly learnt a lot from our sessions. She is patient, explains questions really well (especially if you`re someone like me, who really finds maths hard), she`s even made me realise that it isn`t that hard. She covers a lot in an hours session and even shows you different ways to tackle maths problems, so you are able to decide which method is best for you/which is easier. I feel much more confident about my exam, which is approaching fast! I only wish I had started lessons with her a lot sooner. I couldn`t be more thankful for such a great tutor!
Babette is very patient and sets the work at an appropriate level. The sessions cover a good amount of work and Babette usually leaves some homework with hins and tips. My daughter seems to e making progress in maths.
