review(s) for Angela.
We are so greatfull to Angela for helping our daughter preparing for her final Biology A level exams. Our daughter had various Biology tutors throughout the year but none of them was able to explain and make her understand the topics in the same way as Angela did. We were so lucky to have found Angela! She was always available on tshort notice and really boosted our daughter`s confidence and knowledge. Angela is a fantastic and very patient tutor and we would highly recommend her . She is the best !
I would highly recommend Angela, she has been such a huge help to my son taking A level Biology. She is extremely knowledgeable, very friendly and relaxing. Most importantly for us she was very patient with him and with no pressure. She really helped him with his confidence and exam technique. Thank you Angela.
In addition to the topic, Angela would take papers home to mark to ensure 1:1 tutoring was at maximum. She cared and really wanted to ensure her student got the best out of her. She always came prepared. Very conscientious, knowledgeable and clearly explained the topic. She was excellent!!! Highly recommend.
Angela is an outstanding teacher, my daughter found her teaching and subject approach both very clear and engaging. Angela went through areas of difficulty and made sure my daughter had a good grasp and understanding of these topics. She also helped consolidate fundamental ideas and went through key words, which increased my daughters confidence with the subject, Angela is very patient to answer all the questions and gave more time each week to finish the topic they were studying. Tutors like Angela are hard find and I have no hesitation in highly recommending her. Fantastic Tutor!
Angela is a brilliant tutor, very engaging and knowledgeable. She often stays longer than the hour, I can thoroughly recommend her
Angela is a fantastic tutor. She is amazing, patient and really knows her stuff. Her teaching method is excellent, and our son loves working with her. My son is doing AS and aiming to do medicine. He is very impressed and has found her extremely well organized and knowledgeable. He mentioned that her teaching style is very clear and he feels that he has learned a great deal already. Angela has developed some very useful resources to support her teaching.My son feels that he has significantly improved in his Biology since she starting tutoring him.
I would thoroughly recommend Angela as a tutor.
Angela is a patient and thorough tutor that is really helping our daughter understand how to answer exam questions in A-level Biology. We really appreciate that she can come to our house and are very happy with her.
Angela has been teaching my child A level Biology and has really improved his confidence in the subject. Angela has experience of teaching in a top school so she is able to explain key concepts and how to gain marks in exam questions.
Ms Angela is a devoted and conscientious tutor. She has the requisite knowledge and experience and often gives our daughter more time than the hour agreed. She is very thorough and checks that our daughter has grasped the content through questioning and a manageable amount of homework. She also often begins with some background or introductory information which puts the lesson in a wider context..
Ms Angela was a great tutor who helped to teach complex ideas in biology. She was also of great help in understanding and answering the how science works questions.
The most amazing Biology tutor! Angela has helped me boost my confidence for A2 Biology and bought my passion back for the subject. Angela`s teaching style, really helps you understand the subject clearly and explains things in great detail. If you are looking for a Biology tutor, look no further. Angela is the best of the best!
