Natasha Coates – Online Science Tuition

I offer one-to-one teaching in science from KS3 upwards, teaching Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Combined Science up to GCSE level, and Biology and Biological Sciences at A-Level/Highers/IB up to degree level. I am able to teach students on all UK based boards including AQA, CIE, Edexcel, OCR, Eduqas and WJEC.

And though I am based in the Oxford area, I have students located through the whole of the UK as well as abroad, and often teach international students studying for IGSCE or International A level.

Online Teaching Technology

I use a website called Scribblar to host my online tuition. Scribblar is an online whiteboard and collaborative working tool, that can be used in real time for online tuition. It offers the ability to upload resources for use during lessons, as if they were printed paper. There is a private ‘room’ for each student that can be visited in-between lessons and which slowly accumulates a history of all the teaching and discussions.

I use Microsoft Teams for the ‘face-to-face’ element, which for me is essential to be able to visually interact with my students. So my online lessons are run in exactly the same way as ‘classic’ face-to-face tuition. The only difference is paper is electronic! What you see, I see; we can both annotate the ‘electronic’ paper, we can both talk to each other and look at each other, we but could be on opposite sides of the globe.

Exam Technique Specialist

I work as a freelance principal examiner and team lead for one of the major UK-based international exam boards – this gives me a wealth of experience from writing papers, finalising mark schemes, and marking exam papers at IGCSE and A-Level. This means I am extremely well placed to not only teach subject matter, but also to teach exam technique and how best to approach and answer questions.

Tailored Tutoring

I have experience of working with students of different abilities and with students who have individual requirements, including those with special educational needs (SEN) as well as home-educated students, and will work together with the student to find the most effective approach to learning.


Some feedback from previous clients:

Conscientious, reliable and professional

Natasha has been tutoring my daughter for chemistry and biology GCSE. She has really improved my daughters results and confidence in these subjects. She is conscientious, reliable and professional. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Mrs. D.

Thank you

Thank you for all your help, advice and patience over the last 9 months. Always on time, always well prepared and always with a smile. My son was lacking confidence in his abilities but you helped him to realise that he can do it. Thank you! Mrs F

Confident about science

Natasha has been tutoring my son in Chemistry, Physics and Biology at GCSE level for a number of months now. He has gone from finding a lot of it totally bewildering to really understanding key concepts, and perhaps more importantly, feeling much more confident about science. For a 16 year old to say that his tutor is excellent speaks volumes! Mr. M

Fun, patient and supportive

My son had a couple of tutorials with Natasha and enjoyed both immensely. He found her deep love and knowledge of her subject inspiring and her teaching fun, patient and supportive. I found her extremely conscientious, understanding and easy to communicate with. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for Biology tuition. Mrs. F.

A massive help

Natasha has been a massive help to my studying of an Open University (OU) module. Having not previously studied science at A level she has ensured my knowledge is up date and always had interesting and varied ways of teaching. Lessons are always well planned and consistent with the help offered. Miss. C.

Brilliantly prepared

On time, always! Brilliantly prepared, my daughter is now much more enthusiastic about science. The work she has done with you has certainly help her with school work. She doesn’t ever moan at doing 2 hour session, unlike a double science lesson at school! Mr. M.
