About Aine

Biography
I am an experienced Science teacher, tutor, and former Head of Science, having taught for over 10 years in the classroom. I have a masters degree in Science education from Cambridge University. I am also an exam marker so I am well versed in understanding the skills and language needed for students to get full marks in exam questions. I now have three very young children and so have taken a hiatus from the classroom (since 2017) to care for my children full time. However I enjoy keeping up to date with the latest curricula and putting my vast experience to use by tutoring students most evenings and Saturdays when my husband is home.

Tutoring Experience
I have experience in teaching (and tutoring) Years 7-11 in all sciences - Biology, Chemistry, Physics. I offer GCSE and iGCSE tutoring in all three subjects, as well as the combined science GCSE. My specialism is in Biology, and I teach and tutor Biology AS and A level, as well as for the International Baccalaureate (IB). I have experience in tutoring failing students to help them pass their exams, with quite a few achieving average or above average grades. Most of my tutees achieve at least two grade boundaries above their predicted grades. I also have helped more successful students achieve the high grades needed to gain acceptance into some of the world`s top universities.

Lesson Planning
I have a wealth of experience and resources to draw from, which has frequently helped me to teach the most complex of ideas to students who have previously struggled to understand. I always like to agree the session topic at least one week in advance with my students, so that I have time to organise my resources and to find appropriate exam practice questions.

Exam Board Experience
I have experience with teaching the following exam boards at GCSE level - EdExcel, AQA, OCR. I have experience with teaching EdExcel, AQA and Eduqas for A-level. I also have experience with teaching the International Baccalaureate (IB). I am an exam marker for Pearson (which includes the EdExcel exam board) at GCSE level.

Student Success Stories
All of my previous tutees (where I have had sessions with them for 5 months or more) have scored two grades or more above their working grade when sessions started.
