Information about Lesley
I am an experienced Science teacher of 20 years at Coopers Company and Coborn School,Upminster, teaching KS5 Biology, KS4 Chemistry, Physics Biology and KS3 Science. I enjoy teaching Science and I gain a great deal of satisfaction when student`s reach their goals and achieve the grades they deserve.
I have experience working with students with special needs and a strong record of student`s gaining grades higher than those predicted. I believe my enthusiasm for the subject encourages students to learn and it makes them more confident in believing they can achieve and do well in their exams.

Experience: I am a Science teacher of 20 years in the secondary school sector. I also have an extensive background in medical research which assists my students in understanding why science is such an exciting field of study.

Feedback For Lesley (8)
Lesley tutored my daughter in Biology and helped her get the A grade she needed to get into medicine. She is very patient and bonds well with her students. She prepares and shares up-to date resources and instills confidence in her students. I would highly recommend her.
Lesley is teaching my daughter science in year 10 and is engaging and patient in her teaching. The lessons involve praticals too which adds to interesting lessons and deeper understanding. My daughter looks forward to tuition and feels she can easily snd comfortably communicate with Lesley about her work or if she needs further clarification on a topic. Very glad to have found tutor and got her on side. Highly recommended.
Lesley tutored my daughter Mia for a year in 2015/2016. She is a brilliant teacher and a lovely lady who always went over the hour we paid her for. With her help my daughter achieved an A* in her GCSE.
Tutors Response :
Hi Nicki thank you very very much for your wonderful comment. It was so unexpected. It was always a great pleasure teaching Mia. She worked so hard and well deserved her fantastic grade. Please wish her good luck in her A levels. Love to all xx
I can`t recommend Dr Lesley highly enough, from the first lesson she understood our son is a visual learner and she adapted her teaching to suit our sons mode of learning. She is patient, kind, caring and always gives words of affirmation. Our son adores her and loves her mode of teaching. He has learnt so much in the short space of time with Lesley. We are so grateful.
Such a lovely lady. My son loves her style of teaching
Tutors Response :
Hi Rebecca thank you ever so much for your lovely comments. It is a great pleasure to tutor Jack and I am pleased he enjoys and also gains from our sessions. Thank you once again Lesley
Although I did not actually use Lesley as a tutor, she helped me with advice about the right choice of course for my son. Lesley was very helpful, I had several phone calls with her, which were always responded to and she gave me very considered advice. I tried several other tutors before I came across Lesley and she was the most flexible and helpful. I would strongly recommend Lesley.
Lesley is an experienced Biology teacher,with up-to-date knowledge of what to teach for AS/A level Biology, she gave our daughter the necessary help and guidance to improve her AS and A level grades from B`s to A`s, enabling her to obtain a place in her first choice university.
We don`t think she could have achieved these grades without Lesley`s help.
We have found Lesley to be very dedicated, punctual, honest and reliable at all times and an outstanding tutor in Biology.
I can`t recommend Lesley highly enough. She explains things so that they are easy to grasp and makes lessons fun. She adapted lessons to suit my Dyslexia with work sheets and images. She was always positive and encouraging. She has a caring personality that goes beyond teaching.
