Simon O
£40.00 to £48.00 ph

GCSE Biology Tutor

I have been teaching GCSE Science and A level Chemistry for over 20 years and been Head of Science and Academic Deputy Head. In recent years I have developed a teacher training programme for a chain of schools and worked with Pearson in establishing their UK Online Academy. I am currently working with several schools supporting their students in GCSE Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Combined Science for AQA, Edexcel and OCR, Edexcel and Cambridge iGCSE. I am equally experienced in teaching Chemistry AQA, Edexcel and OCR A levels and Cambridge and Edexcel iA Levels. In my lessons, I aim to clearly explain the fundamentals of a topic, going through worked examples and then support them as necessary in attempting increasingly challenging questions, with a focus on exam technique. Prior to teaching, I was a university lecturer having gained a first-class honours degree in Chemistry and PhD.

Paul H
£87.10 to £93.80 ph

GCSE Biology Tutor

I have tutored Maths, Chemistry and Biology to GCSE, and Physics to A-level for many years. Over the last year I have also started tutoring A-level Chemistry and A-level Maths. Before this I taught as a qualified science teacher for 10 years. I started teaching online some time before the pandemic and use a variety of software which allows for effective collaboration, lesson recording. Students get clear organised notes, simulations, videos which can be accessed at any time. I also run seminars and training to other tutors on how to teach online effectively. Before my career as a science teacher, I spent 5 years travelling around Asia teaching which is where I learnt my love of teaching to others. I then came back to the UK to work in schools as a teaching support assistant for a year and a half before training as a science teacher specialising in Physics.

GCSE Biology Tutor

My name is Shaheen. I have been working as a science teacher (Head of chemistry) for six years. I have been a tutor for nine years. I have been an examiner for OCR and Edexcel for three years, so I really understand the nuances of how to get learners to develop exam techniques that will enhance their progress. I am also currently in role as an OCR monitor, which involves visiting schools to assess whether they are meeting the standards of the exam board for Practical Endorsements. This means I have a thorough understanding of the practical elements of the chemistry A-level course and how these practicals are assessed in the written papers. My results speak for themselves - I have many examples of learners who have achieved above the predicted grades generated by their schools. This proves that I can truly stretch and challenge learners, so that they can achieve their maximum potential.

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced GCSE Biology teachers, you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our GCSE Biology teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a GCSE Biology tutor coming to your home to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the GCSE Biology tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the GCSE Biology tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the GCSE Biology tutor is required to travel to your home. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your GCSE Biology tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your GCSE Biology tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of GCSE Biology tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group GCSE Biology tuition depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
