Miss Siobhan G

I am a confident, outgoing science teacher specialising in biology. I am also confident in chemistry and physics. I have been at my current school for five years and currently teach KS3 and GCSE students following the AQA exam board. However I have tutored a lot of students who follow the edexcel qualification and am up to date on this. I strive to make all of science accessible and enjoyable for students, relating topics to real life, and working through areas student find tough until it clicks for them. I have taught a range of abilities and SEN needs while at my current school while also leading the STEM program, aiming to engage all students. My aim with tutoring is to spend the time with a student, understanding their barriers and working on any area that they need as much as they need until they feel more happy with it. This can then be built on using exam questions to cement their understanding and hopefully it is then embedded ready for exams.
