Information about Helen
My name is Helen and I am a 28 year old teacher from Rotherham. I have worked as a science teacher in the South Yorkshire area for the past 5 years. I am currently working at a school in Barnsley where I teach science at key stage 3 and 4.
I love working with young people and helping them to achieve their goals. I have a friendly personality but also have very high standards. I will strive to make sure my students are making good progress every lesson. I have a very active approach to teaching with the intention of making learning more stimulating and effective. I have access to many resources including past exam questions and text books/revision guides.
Availability: I am available week day evenings. I am more flexible during the school holidays.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: I have taught science for 5 years. During this time I have worked in school across South-Yorkshire. I am currently a science teacher at a school in Barnsley. I can offer all science subjects at KS3 and KS4 and Biology at A level.
I have coached young people in sports and have had a lot of experience working in the sporting field. I have coached football abroad and have completed a number of sports coaching awards. I can therefore also offer GCSE and A-level PE/sport studies as one of my specialist subjects.
Feedback For Helen (5)
Excellent tutor. My son now loves his biology lessons and has learnt so much more in the short time Helen has worked with him. His confidence has grown tremendously. Thank you, Helen.
Tutors Response :
Thank you so much for the feedback I really appreciate it.
I have had 3 lessons with Helen so far and have found that she communicates clearly and has lots of different strategies to explain things in different ways. I feel that I am making great progress with her.
My 16 yr old daughter received tuition from Helen, from Jan 2015 to the completion of her GCSE exams in June 2015.From the outset Helen made a real difference to Eleanor`s confidence with Physics but also helped her with specific maths, biology and chemistry issues. Helen is very friendly and put Eleanor very much at ease.A great tutor
My son and myself were very pleased with Helen. She gave Robert some valuable strategies and tips in helping him in his exam in AS Level Sport. She is patient, helpful and used a range of teaching methods that supported Robert`s style. I wouldn`t hesitate in recommending Helen as a personal tutor.
My daughter has visited Helen on a weekly basis running up to her exams and has benefitted greatly from her sessions. She tailored the sessions to fit my daughters needs whilst providing tips and explanations in improving her exam technique. She not only used these techniques for her biology exam but also in other exams too which is fantastic. My daughter could not stress enough how great she thought Helen was and I would highly recommend Helen to anyone wishing to improve there knowledge. She is friendly, approachable and patient. My daughter felt at ease immediately, never feeling pressured or rushed during her sessions.
