Information about Christine
I am very passionate about my subject, Science, in particular Biology. My lessons are engaging, interesting and fun. I am reliable, punctual and approachable. I am attracted to tutoring due to my wish to work with children and young adults and to help them learn, along with the desire to fulfil a worthwhile role in society, the expectation of intellectual stimulation, together with the wish to remain involved in my subject discipline of Science and to pass on my personal enthusiasms.
I believe I am sincere and genuine, so creating an atmosphere of trust, and able to build rapport with my students. When students feel able to trust me, they will behave more naturally, express themselves more honestly and be more likely to ask me for help. They will become more open to my expectations, and will also be able to take on board my criticism because they will understand that I have their best interests at heart. Crucially, they will try things beyond their comfort zone because they won`t be afraid of the consequences of making mistakes. The student will ultimately gain confidence which is sometimes all that is needed.
Availability: Monday to Friday evenings between 5.00pm and 8.00 and Saturday afternoons (1.30pm to 4.30pm). I also do online tutoring .
Willing to travel: 20 miles
Experience: I have 10 years experience of tutoring GCSE Science and Key Stage 3 Science. In particular, I have a good knowledge of the AQA Triple Science and AQA Combined Science over a range of abilities. I can give sound advice on revision techniques and planning and provide revision sessions if required. A word of advice, please do not leave revision sessions till last minute, although, late revision is better then no revision at all!

Feedback For Christine (5)
We found Christine an approachable and helpful Tutor.
very good teacher
Excellent tutor, would not hesitate to recommend Christine.
If I could give Christine 6 stars, I would.We have found her to be dedicated,enthusiastic & passionate in her teaching approach.She definitely knows how to motivate students & to get the best out off them. My son looks forward to seeing her each week.
Always arrives on time for tutoring sessions, breaks work down into manageable pieces. We did give her a very short space of time (Start end of Feb for May exams!)to cover 3 Science subjects with my daughter and it all looks well planned and thought out. Christine gave realistic expectations of what she could do mainly due to time frame given. My daughter is learning and enjoying the sessions.
