Information about Gillian

I am a fully qualified teacher with over 15 years experience, most of which is with A levels in a sixth form environment. I work part time and have a young daughter but enjoy tutoring on a one to one basis. I am a very patient, friendly and approachable tutor with a genuine enthusiasm for my subject and I will adapt my methods to suit each individual. I believe developing a students confidence in their own ability and a good sense of humour go a long way to achieving success.

Availability: I prefer to tutor face to face from my home in Wymondham and have good availability for the academic year from September 2020 although spaces are filling up fast. New for 2020 I am able to offer 1 to 1 Zoom lessons backed up by resources from individually created Google Classrooms.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I have over 15 years experience of teaching both A level Biology and Accounting in 2 different sixth form colleges. I am also happy to tutor Human Biology at A level. I can also tutor Accounting to AAT standards up to level 4. I am very able to interpret exam board specifications and exam questions which makes me an ideal choice of tutor for exam preparation. I enjoy working on a one to one basis with students to identify and develop their strengths and encourage and work on their weaknesses. My subject knowledge is first class as are my many and varied teaching skills.

Gill was an amazing tutor who, over a year, helped me build up my confidence in biology. She’s brilliant at explaining complex aspects of the syllabus and going through exam questions.

Gillian has been an incredible tutor helping me in particular work towards my AS biology retake. With her help my grade increased from a U to an A and she helped build my confidence in answering exam questions to get me my B in biology overall which I needed for university. I always enjoyed our sessions and am so grateful for her dedication.

Gillian is an excellent teacher and tutored our daughter Rachael for her A level in Biology this summer, which she gained a B and is now off to university in September. Gillian is a calm and experienced teacher who adapts her style to the individual learner. Thank you so much Gillian for your help.

Gillian gave my daughter really excellent support leading up to her AS Human Biology,focussing on specific areas of difficulty and explaining concepts in a variety of ways to make them understandable. She had a really good knowledge of the subject and a real enthusiasm for it. She gave my daughter lots of practice in past papers and helped her achieve a really good grade. We would both highly recommend Gillian and are starting sessions again soon to work on the tricky bits of A2 Human Biology.

Gill has helped me to gain a much better understanding of Biology to enable me to optimise the grade I can achieve as part of my A Level course. Teaching has always been clear and concise with the required depth and detail while also ensuring that I focus on the key concepts required within the syllabus. My main problem has been exam technique and tackling longer questions and this is something Gill has really helped me with, her advice on this has been excellent and she has always been proactive in marking any questions I have done. Would recommend to anyone wanting extra support!
