Information about Margaret

I am a recently semi-retired ex Head of Biology and Head of Year 12. My aim in tutoring is to build the confidence needed to enjoy learning, improve the quality of understanding and therefore raise the grades achieved by my students. I offer a friendly, structured approach and use a variety of teaching methods tailored to the requirements of the particular student. My students have often told me that I explain things in a simple way and make them easy to understand.
I have worked with AQA and OCR exam boards and am well aware of the skills needed to achieve good grades. In large classes some students may miss key concepts and this can impair their understanding and learning. I believe that individual tuition can often be the turning point in the road to success.

Availability: I am available weekdays and weekends during the day and evening.

Experience: I have been a teacher for over 30 years and have just semi- retired from a Head of Biology and Head of Year 12 role. I taught biology throughout the school up to A level (100% pass rate at GCSE and A level), physics KS2 to GCSE (100% pass rate) and can also offer maths help. I have successfully tutored students in biology for medical and Oxbridge places and have also helped students compile UCAS entries. I have BSc(Hons) Biological Sciences, PGCE and a DBS check.

Maggie was an amazing tutor, helped my daughter improve by two grades in a year! She`s very friendly and has a very organised and thorough method of teaching with notes and lots of questions. My daughter tried several tutors before and she didn`t feel she was learning anything with them until Maggie. I can`t recommend her enough!

Maggie has been a life saver over the last eighteen months, helping my son with `A` level Biology. She`s totally reliable, always comes with excellent preparation and is incredibly well informed on exam approaches and content. She`s very positive and her calm, focused approach and sense of humour, has given my son lots of confidence. We haven`t got the results yet, but it doesn`t matter, I wouldn`t hesitate to recommend her.Thanks Maggie!

One of the best things you can do for your child is to hire this Marvellous and passionate tutor- Mrs Margaret Cartlidge. We are jumping up and down on results day due to the effort she put into her student. A very compassionate and wonderful human being to meet. Highly professional and hard working teacher. She Knows her subject very well and effectively transfers the knowledge to the student. Can`t praise enough. Thank you for your help Margaret.

Maggie is an excellent tutor: well-organised, thorough and very personable. She`s reliable and prepared to be flexible with timings. My daughter is already feeling more confident about subject content. We`re more than pleased with the way things are going.

Very pleased with Margaret`s tutoring. She was a great help to my daughter in preparing for A level Biology finals 2017.
My only regret is that we didn`t find Margaret earlier.

My son has seen considerable improvement in his grades since he has been tutored by Maggie. His dream to study medicine has gone from being `a dream` to now having an offer in place. Maggies guidance and approach has allowed my son to focus on specific subjects to achieve thorough understanding and robust knowledge, not always achievable in the classroom or by studying alone. Maggie is very personable and a highly experienced teacher who really helps her students to get the best results they can.
