Tutor profiles

Maths Workshop Leader: Eva Ball

I have been teaching Maths at secondary level for around 20 years. I make Mathematics accessible for all by employing games, puzzles and problem-solving activities. There is no substitute for practice, particularly when preparing for exams, and so I use a range of exam-style questions to help students with their revision. When working on questions together I give guidance about clear workings, common mistakes and easy marks not to be missed. I take time to support the Student’s approach to the exam papers.  I also like to signpost my students to helpful websites and resources that they can use outside of our lessons. I absolutely love Mathematics and find it a fascinating and beautiful subject.  As well as obvious practical uses, Mathematics is a  language and an art, full of patterns waiting to be discovered!  I recently spent time with a student composing music from the Fibonacci sequence.  Great fun! Music is my other passion and as well as listening, I also play the flute, saxophone and a little guitar.  I spend quite a lot of time in my garden, growing flowers and food but also hanging out with my chickens!  They are so interesting and funny!  I’m also very concerned about the environment and play an active role in our local sustainability group, volunteering at the composting site where we take residents’ garden waste and turn it into lovely, peat-free compost.

Chemistry Workshop Leader: 

Andrea Parry

I believe that students work best in a fun and supportive environment. I have a passion for science tutoring and relish the challenge of making difficult topics relevant and understandable. I achieve this by assessing how each student learns and then adapt my teaching approach accordingly. This allows students to gain mastery over key concepts, content and technique.
I have a PhD in analytical chemistry from Plymouth University. I have worked in the water industry in research and development as well as managing a high throughput commercial organic chemistry laboratory. I gained a PGCE in science, specialising in chemistry, from Exeter University. I have taught science in secondary schools since 2001.
I have recently taken up a post with Exeter City Futures CIC, developing a net zero carbon toolkit for communities and businesess.
I look forward to meeting and working with your child to improve their confidence and mastery of Chemistry.

Biology and Physics Workshop Leader: 

Miranda Cox

I have worked as a secondary science teacher in comprehensive schools since 2015, specialising in Physics up to A-level and Biology from Key Stage 3 all the way up to University! To make sure my teaching is the best it can be, I have trained as a GCSE Physics examiner and attended courses run by the Institute of Physics.
I often work with young people that have medical and/or mental health difficulties which is very rewarding as they can come a long way with extra support and encouragement! I also love working with those students who need those extra levels of exam strategy and detail to access the highest grades.
