As experienced teachers who have taught chemistry, biology and physics over the years of our careers, we are able to provide high quality tuition for your child. Whether they wish for tuition at primary or secondary level for any of the sciences, for SATs for GCSEs we can help boost their knowledge, grades and confidence.
Revision plans, exam techniques and time management can help you child to perform better, thus they will feel more confident and prepared in the exams, resulting in improved grades.
GCSEs have changed, becoming more rigorous and no longer comprising a course work element. This means that results are all dependent upon performance on the day. Whilst this suits some students, the vast majority find that it adds pressure and stress, ultimately this can mean lower grades than which they deserve as nerves affect performance on the day. Devising an individual programme of revision along with effective revision strategies are a great help, though unfortunately not all schools assist in this way. Tuition helps to fill the gap that schools do not provide. Good quality revision, along with knowledge on how to apply it is proven to make difference to grades.
During Victoria's teaching career she has taught Chemistry, Biology and Physics to GCSE level. Should your child require these subjects at primary or secondary level, core or additional, I have both the resources and knowledge to help boost your child's grade and confidence. Once again at GCSE level the exams have become more rigorous and require the recall of equations, facts and the periodic table. I can teach your child revision techniques, assist with areas that they may find more difficult, gap fill, build confidence and boost or consolidate grades as required. An initial assesment will identify weaknesses, so that a tailored individual programme of study can be formulated.
For those sitting tests at the end of Key Stage 3, who wish to follow additional science pathway, tuition can help them to achieve the results required for them to be entered for the GCSE pathway. For those whom science is a struggle but are embarking upon a foundation pathway as it is compulsory with your school, tuition can help you to achive a pass grade. Obviously, the more passes achieved at GCSE level, the more career or further education choices are available to you.
The complex and diverse phenomena of the natural world can be described in terms of a small number of key ideas in chemistry. These ideas have been embeded throughout the subject content and underpin many aspects of the science assessment and will therefore be assessed across all papers. It is important that students can both understand and apply these ideas and that they can also apply mathematical forumlae to problem solving. Assessment will provide a gap analysis so that one to one tuition can be tailored to your child and that they have both the knowledge and skills to answer questions regarding the different units studied.
Most students follow the AQA course, though the Edexcel course is also catered for. Chemistry can be taught as a separate subject for those students following the Triple Science pathway, or as part of the Combined science:Trilogy course.
Physics is also affected by the changes in the exam structures, meaning it too has lost its coursework and a pass is dependent upon purely exam performance. Thus, it is very important that students not only know the content but also the exam question technique and time management.
Physics is a set of ideas about the material world and tuition will support your child to build a deep understanding of the subject. They will learn how scientific methods and theories have developed over time and use mathematics to solve problems and make predicitions. Physics involves not only the knowledge of formulae but also how to apply those formulae to problem solving. It is due to this mathematical nature that many students struggle with this subject. An initial assessment will identify gaps in student knowledge.
Most students follow the AQA course, though the Edexcel course is also catered for. Physics can be taught as a separate subject for those students following the Triple Science pathway, or as part of the Combined science:Trilogy course.
Victoria has successfully taught Biology to students to GCSE, devising her own schemes of work to meet the requirements of the courses, whilst at the same time making the subject enjoyable for her students. Should your child require additional help with their revision she has the experience and resources to ensure that they progress.
Biology is a very popular subject, yet few tutors cater for this area. The style of the exams changed from June 2018 for GCSE Foundation and Higher tiers. Most students follow the AQA course, though the Edexcel course is also catered for. Biology can be taught as a separate subject for those students following the Triple Science pathway, or as part of the Combined science:Trilogy course.
In addition, students will require sound mathematical skills in order to collect and analyse data, which will be later used in the exam, as well as to be able to draw upon statistical skills. Thus your child may need not only support in the biological elements but also in the mathematical elements used throughout the course and in the exam.
Whichever exam board your child studies with, they can be supported and if their desire is to pursue this subject they will be boosted to achieve a good pass or their target grade, so that they can achieve the entry requirements in further education.
