I am a UK-born Anglo-French-Australian who moved to Tasmania in 2013. With a degree in Natural Sciences from Cambridge and a PGCE in Secondary Science, I have taught Biology and Mathematics in British and Australian classrooms for over 10 years. My familiarity with multiple subjects (Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, French) means I can help you, or your child, with several subjects - even within one session!
Knowing your subject(s) is not enough to be a good and effective tutor - you have to know how to transmit your knowledge, in many different ways and using different media, to your students! Having taught in many mixed-ability classrooms, I have extensive and varied experience of helping students with different learning styles understand complex concepts.
If you or your child needs that extra little bit of help at school, or you're simply interested in broadening your general maths and science skills, give me a call! I hold a valid Working with Vulnerable People (WWVP) registration.
I have tutored many dozens of students across three different educational systems: British (10 years), French (10 years) and Australian (5). Many of my students have gone on to study Medicine, Dentistry and scientific subjects at university. In addition, I have practised as a fully qualified classroom teacher in the UK and Australia for over 10 years, accumulating much experience in teaching Mathematics and Biology (A-level, Baccalaureate, Tasmanian exams). I have also tutored adults in French from beginner to advanced level. I have tutored some students continuously for several years (up to five) from secondary school through to pretertiary classes and beyond to university level. Within the Tasmanian TASC system, I have experience of tutoring Chemistry 4, Physical Sciences 3, Biology 3, Maths Methods 4, Maths Methods Foundation 3, General Maths 3 and General Maths Foundation 2.
