Mrs Jane S

I am an enthusiastic and encouraging teacher and have taught in a wide variety of education establishments including comprehensives, boarding schools, a sixth form college, and a field study centre. Having taught in so many places, I am very flexible regarding exam boards. My A level experience includes AQA and OCR, and I was scientific editor for the new international Cambridge A level biology book. My GCSE experience includes AQA and Edexcel, and I’ve also written 21stC Science (OCR) content for BBC Bitesize and Kerboodle. I have marked and/or written exam questions for A level and GCSEs since 1986. Most students know more facts than they think they do, but they need help weaving them into a narrative that makes sense, and that demonstrates their understanding in exams. I use exam questions to help students pinpoint areas of weak understanding and help them to fill in the gaps. This problem-solving approach is at the heart of what science is, so in the process they develop as scientists.
