Ongoing WORKSHOPS and COURSES
Each workshop is one hour per week, with a series run over four weeks. The workshops are scaffolded so students are required to sign up for the four-week course to aid continuity. To consolidate work in the lesson, students are encouraged to answer five multiple-choice questions for homework. I use either Bramble or Infiniti whiteboard platforms, both of which are safe and very intuitive.
Each series of workshops is repeated every eight weeks.
Price: £15 per workshop. £60 per series If you are a current 1-2-1 student with me, you will receive a discount of 33% per workshop = £10/£40

Maths in science
20% of marks in science are for maths tasks only – you can
actually gain these marks without knowing any science! As a GCSE Science examiner, I see many maths
marks lost and I also have insight into the most common errors. This series of interactive workshops cover
the whole of the maths in science curricula (except physics-only components) as required by Ofqual.
Command words are those that tell you how to answer a
question. As a GCSE Science examiner, I
see many marks lost through students misunderstanding the command work, and
therefore have insight into the most common errors. This series of interactive workshops cover
the most common command words using 4- and 6-mark general and prescribed
practical exam questions within biology, chemistry and physics.
Tuesdays : 5.30-6.30pm
Ionic compounds AND EQUATIONS
ionic bonding is the cornerstone of inorganic chemistry – especially marks
relating to bonding, salt equations, reactivity and electrolysis. However, as a GCSE Science examiner and
experienced teacher/tutor, I see many marks lost through lack of
understanding. This series of
interactive workshops scaffolds students from the basic to the complex. Students are encouraged to answer some pre-course multiple-choice questions so that I can assess your current ability. Depending upon demand, a course covering electrolysis can be arranged (students must have covered series A & B first).
