I returned to full-time education in 1993 at the age of 27 and enrolled on a science foundation course at Shirecliffe College, Sheffield, followed by a BSc (Hons) Biomedical Science degree at Sheffield Hallam University. Upon successfully completing this degree, I began a three year postgraduate research degree (PhD) with the Oncology Research Group at Nottingham Trent University.
Whilst studying at NTU, I was given the opportunity to lecture / demonstrate to undergraduate science students, which involved supervising practical laboratory sessions and assessment of written coursework. I found this experience immensely rewarding and as a result, I decided to pursue a career in teaching.
I qualified as a teacher in June 2002 and began teaching science full-time in September 2002. I then became the Head of the Science Department in March 2007.
I also have 6 years experience of successful home tutoring, which I began whilst on maternity leave in 2010. I have a detailed knowledge of the GCSE specifications for all the major exam boards (I also have experience as an examiner for OCR and AQA) and an appreciation of the difficulties some students encounter in a busy classroom environment.
June is a wonderful teacher. Very patient and understanding. Thank you for your help.
Good first lesson. Identified number of gaps essential for progression. Left my daughter feeling enthusiastic.
This tutor is fantastic covering all areas of science with my son in year 9 (physics, chemistry and biology). He is in a mixed ability class at school and is being pushed much more now he has June rather than being taught just the standard lesson plan material...the teaching is very accessible (I sometimes sit and listen myself) and June makes what could be quite boring interesting as she really explains reasons for things happening in science to aid understanding rather than just a brief explanation. I think we have been lucky to find a tutor able to teach all sciences at such a good level.
My daughter now has June as her science tutor and she has been a great tutor. She always put in lots of effort towards lessons and can always support my daughter with any help she needs .
