Information about Sylvia
"I help students improve their grades and pass GCSE science, through personalised 1:1 face to face and online science tutoring."
A Qualified Science Teacher (Biology & Chemistry specialist), I have worked in academia and the education sector for over thirteen years. I have a BSc in Biomedical Science and MSc in Medical Microbiology.
Availability: Face to Face
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have over 6 years classroom teaching and tutoring experience, with a focus on KS3, GCSE and IGCSE students. My goal is simple - to help students who struggle with science develop confidence and pass their exams.
I have worked with students from a range of backgrounds and abilities including tutoring students identified as underachieving. As a Qualified Teacher, I am fully conversant with all major exam boards (Edexcel, AQA and OCR). My specialism are Biology and Chemistry
I help children master the foundational concepts so that they can easily build upon their knowledge.
My lessons are interleaved with questions and other assessment tasks as well as frequent end of unit exam questions. All this helps to assess the childs progress and improve memory retention and learning. Practising exam papers also helps consolidate learning and dissipate childrens fears around examinations.
My tutoring sessions are built largely around students weaknesses. I identify how each child learn best and teach them using more of that method. I also use everyday examples to explain key concepts which helps build confidence and increase the childs love and understanding for the subject.
So, if you have a child in secondary school who needs help with science, then get in touch to find out how I can help you.
Feedback For Sylvia (5)
We already had around 5 months doing science with Sylvia. I just upset that my son didnt start it earlier. She gave him some confidence at subjects and increased his interest at science. Looking forward to seeing more positive:) thanks
Sylvia gave my son a much better understanding of science. She was great at giving him more confidence in the areas he felt unsure of. Thank you
I was impressed by Sylvia`s approach. We agreed that my daughter was not in the right place to take on extra work at this time, but hope to engage with Sylvia again later in the year. Thank you
Sylvia is very knowledgeable, explains things thoroughly and in depth. Her teaching style is very interactive.
Very organised & clear tutor, very good at covering syllabus & preparing for exams. Lovely way with our daughter (16yrs) & establishes good working relationship. Helpful & clear feedback also to parents & always very ready & thorough in addressing any concerns. Would really recommend.
