As a qualified Science teacher, I have experience of teaching KS3, KS4 and KS5, teaching many GCSE Science and A level Biology groups. My students would probably describe me as strict with high expectations but also very approachable and friendly. Tuition is very much a two-way process in which students are encouraged to speak openly about their academic achievements, areas of difficulty and other stumbling blocks in their progress. Just as important as academic progress are the increase in confidence and skills gained by individuals during the tuition process.
Previous teaching and examiner roles enable me to quickly assess individual student’s ability and to highlight weaknesses in knowledge and understanding or relevant skills. I support students with revision strategies and exam techniques, from the interpretation of questions, application of knowledge, mathematical skills or just tips and techniques on how to get to grips with more difficult biological concepts. I generally set a short homework activity after each lesson to consolidate the work covered and check understanding.
In addition, I offer Tuition Plus for longer term students wanting support in A level Biology. Students gain extra support online, along with high-quality revision summaries and exam practice questions which would be marked by myself.

Testimonials for Jacqui Cardani

Jacqui is a wonderfully likeable lady who made Biology and Chemistry fun, accessible, clear and understandable for my daughter who looked forward to lessons with her. She is a brilliant teacher, all the positive adjectives apply and we are very lucky to have found her. Unhesitatingly recommended 100% !

C. Simmons, Wetherby

Absolutely brilliant

Jacqui teaches my son A level biology and has a good balance of rapport and strictness. She knows her subject very well indeed and has engendered a confidence in my son that he was lacking. Jacqui has taught him how to pay attention to detail and give better answers to questions enabling him to lift his grade. Would recommend very much.

Mrs. Staniforth, Harrogate

Have been really impressed with communications and how the tutor sessions have been going. Claudia has been very positive about the plans, feedback and growing in confidence about how to tackle A2 biology questions.

A. Stanton.

Jacqui was an amazing biology tutor, her teaching skills and resources she provides are excellent! She helped me move from a U grade to a C grade in my A-levels!

O. Hudson

Jacqui has been a so helpful with my daughter’s A2 Biology revision. My daughter has been impressed at the volume of work they are getting through and Jacqui's depth of knowledge which she is able to communicate in a way that makes accessing the information meaningful and understandable. Jacqui is very generous with her time and my daughter finds her friendly and enthusiastic. Jacqui has helped to enhance my daughter’s confidence and hopefully improve her grades.

J. Todd- Franklin

Jacqui was able to explain topics in a way that made things much easier to understand and with her help I was able to move my Biology grade from a B to a high A, a result I didn't think I was capable of achieving. I would recommend Jacqui and her excellent teaching skills to everyone looking for help with their biology.
