I am a patient, open-minded, encouraging tutor with the gift of being able to teach simple and complex problems to students of all backgrounds and skill levels, allowing them to think independently, creatively and scientifically; building their confidence, knowledge base, reasoning and school results.
My unique ability to recognize innate skills in students helps me to tap into their hidden potential, developing their talents to a maximum, motivating them to high levels of personal and professional achievement.
Throughout my career I have had an excellent record of success with students of all ages, increasing their scientific understanding, grades and creative thought.
I approach each student differently, developing structured plans and goals leading to rapid development and results.
Specifically, I specialize in tutoring students who are weak in biology
, looking to strengthen their grades significantly, as well as students interested in developing a career in medicine, veterinary work or the biological sciences.
I have over 10years experience in teaching science
on a practical and theoretical level to students of all ages and skill levels.
