Information about Anne

Having taught GCSE science and Maths and A Level biology and chemistry in the state secondary sector for a number of years I am able to assess a students strengths whilst providing well developed strategies to make rapid progress in areas for development.
Having recently retired from the classroom to concentrate on private tutoring I have an up to date and in-depth knowledge of the specifications and exam structure.

"I had Anne for a year and a half and she was absolutely brilliant! I owe so much to her for helping me achieve my grade and enabling me to reach my goal of going to Uni and studying to become a PE teacher.
The help Anne offered was exceptional! She took things at my pace and was always friendly. I am really grateful for Anne`s help."

Tracey - parent
"Anne came into our home to tutor our son Gavin when he had been trying to get through his `A` levels at home due to health problems. Bullying at school also made him a worrier,with no confidence in either himself,his own abilities or teachers.With care, understanding and constant support from Anne he learned he could trust a teacher and with time and Anne`s work we could not believe the change in our son, in both his academic achievements,his confidence levels and his own personal belief in himself.With Anne`s continuing, help Gavin passed his `A` level human biology with a high B and i also know thanks to Anne`s gentle persuasion ,she gave him the strength and confidence to go on to university."

Experience: Having qualified as a teacher over 30 years ago I then taught in the F.E. sector for 8 years at Huntingdon Technical College. I took a short break while my children were young. For 21 years I taught in a state secondary school both full and part time. I have had managerial experience as Head of Biology and Gifted and Talented co-ordinator. Since retiring from the classroom I successfully tutor the sciences and maths to an increasingly high number of students each year.

Teaching and learning are complex processes whose success relies on a trusting relationship between student and teacher. Initially, I will question, listen, challenge and probe to discover a student depth of knowledge and ability to think scientifically whilst gently building the rapport needed to progress. This will enable me to identify areas of weakness and work at developing confidence in expressing ideas orally and in writing. Practising exam questions will help develop in-depth understanding and skills of problem solving and analysis.

I would recommend Anne as a tutor for A level Biology. She explains everything clearly and in a way that my son can understand. I was initially hesitant about using an on-line tutor, but I needn’t have worried. Anne has built up a good rapport with my son, yet remains professional, and is completely reliable.

Anne supported my daughter through the last few months of her GCSE Science. She updated her knowledge filling in the bits the school either glossed over or failed to teach. Final result was an A. School predicted a 4.
We will continue to use Anne through her A level to ensure she has the skills and knowledge to do well.
My daughter thinks Anne is amazing!

Anne has been great for my teenage daughter, who was previously reluctant to engage with science, and is now asking for extra sessions with Anne.
