Isabelle has a degree and a PhD in chemistry, and a Masters in Education. She is reliable, organised and has excellent subject knowledge across the science curriculum. Isabelle has a strong experience in planning lessons, which are structured around clear learning objectives, and in finding and developing engaging activities and resources tailored to the needs of her students.
Isabelle was a full-time science teacher for 17 years in a secondary school in London. As a teacher, she has many years of experience in preparing students for exams, helping them to tune their exam techniques and maximise their exam performance to meet or exceed their target grades.
Isabelle has extensive experience in teaching the three sciences at KS3 and GCSE, and in supporting students in achieving their full potential across a wide range of abilities and needs, e.g. Gifted and Talented students, students on the autistic spectrum, students with dyslexia, students with English as an additional language and students with ADHD.
Isabelle is now a full-time tutor. She has experience in tutoring KS3 Science, GCSE and iGCSE Science, Chemistry A-level, KS3 Maths, and GCSE and iGCSE Maths. She has experience of the AQA, OCR, Edexcel and Cambridge exam boards.
Isabelle has experience in tutoring Maths and Science 13+ Common Entrance, supporting students to be successful in the entrance exams to Dulwich College, Trinity College, Eltham College and Whitgift School.
Also, she has experience in tutoring online, using a web whiteboard and document sharing via video calling on Skype.
Being an experienced educator and a good listener allows Isabelle to identify each student’s own strengths and areas for development, enabling her to provide the necessary support to ensure the student is ready to face challenges with confidence and maximise their performance.
In her free time, Isabelle enjoys keeping fit and healthy, cooking, reading and listening to music.
“Isabelle has provided GCSE preparatory triple science and maths tutoring for our son since September last year. She is very experienced, and her teaching background is a real benefit. Together with her sound subject knowledge, this ensures effective and efficient tutoring. Our son enjoys the sessions with her as she manages to create a comfortable and friendly learning environment. She is also reliable, punctual and organised.”
“Isabelle has been tutoring my son in Maths and Science since September. She is an excellent tutor. My son enjoys his sessions with her, and he says she makes everything easy to understand. Isabelle is reliable, patient and kind and my son has made great progress with her and as a result his confidence has also increased. Unfortunately, he has missed a lot of school due to ill health but thanks to his lessons with Isabelle he has been able to keep up and do well despite his lengthy absences.”
“It is with great pleasure that I recommend Isabelle Flamant as a science tutor. She has been working with my son, a reluctant student, on all three sciences as set by the GCSE syllabus, for the last many months. The difference in his academic performance has been dramatic. Isabelle is an impressively calm and patient teacher, willing to re-visit topics until knowledge is secure. She is also flexible and fluid between the subjects; their weekly sessions focus on my son’s needs at the time, not necessarily the chronology of the syllabus. Isabelle has been a very positive addition to my son’s educational experience. ”
“Isabelle is a calm, focused and professional tutor. She tutored our daughter in GCSE Maths and Chemistry on alternate weeks in preparation for her exams. This was an excellent way of supplementing her full-time learning without overloading her. Isabelle was able to fill in any gaps, tackle difficult questions and help build confidence in both subject areas. This resulted in a two point increase in her grades and was achieved without undue anxiety or stress. Isabelle was always on time, well organised and gave her time generously, preparing work for the sessions and following up with information where needed. I would not hesitate to recommend Isabelle and her experience in multiple subject areas is a definite plus.”
