Kevin Quinn

Kevin Quinn graduated from Queen’s University Belfast in 2006 with a degree in Physics and Astrophysics, and again in 2010 with a PhD in Laser-matter interaction physics. On completing his PhD, Kevin retrained as a teacher, obtaining his PGCE in secondary science education from Imperial College London and Canterbury Christ Church University before going on to spend five years working at Highgate School in north London.  Kevin has extensive experience in the teaching of the AQA and OCR GCSE specifications, and has served as an educational consultant to new and non-specialist teachers of both courses.  Currently, he is teaching across all three secondary-level Key Stages at Regent House Grammar School in his native Northern Ireland.

Katie Ross

Katie Ross has a BSc in Zoology from Southampton University and a PGCE in secondary science education from Brunel University. She taught AQA Science to Key Stages 3-5 for 10 years at Bishop Ramsey School in west London, where she was Head of Key Stage 3 Science, Head of Key Stage 4 Science, coordinator for Cognitive Assessment in Science Education (CASE), the Key Stage 4 ISA coordinator and ultimately Deputy Head of Science. Katie used my-GCSEscience at Bishop Ramsey and saw such good results that she decided to turn her talents to creating my-GCSEscience videos for the new Biology specification! Since January 2017, Katie has also been Head of Science at John Colet School in Buckinghamshire.

Elaine Quinn

Elaine Quinn has created all of the scientific illustrations for the new specification my-GCSEscience videos. Having graduated with a degree in Physics with Astrophysics from Queen’s University Belfast and an MSc in Medical Physics from the University of Surrey, she went on to train as a Clinical Scientist in hospitals across London before taking on her current role as a nuclear medicine physicist at The Royal Victoria Hospital in Belfast. Here, Elaine helps ensure good-quality images of patients are obtained to assist doctors in their diagnosis, while for my-GCSEscience, she gets to create her own images! A mainly self-taught illustrator, Elaine has had a lifelong love of art, and her science illustration work has enabled her to combine her passions for both art and science.

Thank you for the amazing videos, I wouldn’t have received the grades I did without them. I achieved two A*s in Chemistry and Physics, and an A in Biology. I would wholly recommend this to anyone considering a tutor as it was far better value for money and was so convenient as it’s online and accessible at all times.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you, as I achieved 3 A*s in Biology, Chemistry AND Physics due to this site! After having no luck with textbooks and tutors, I decided to give my-GCSEscience a go and it was so worth it! I would never have achieved the grades I did, and now I am able to study the Sciences at A-Level.

SarinaSeptember 2015


I honestly swear that I would not have gotten an A* in Biology, Chemistry AND Physics if it wasn’t for you. You helped me understand topics which I had no clue about, I felt like I had a private tutor for a very cheap price. my-GCSEscience is amazing.

NickyAugust 2015


Both of my daughters have used your resources. My younger daughter used your Core Science resources in Year 10 as she was struggling a little. She got an A! She now wants to get started earlier this year. My other daughter got two As! The videos have given them lots of support and confidence. Thank you! A great resource!

RachelSeptember 2016


The videos and worksheets really helped me understand the content and memorise it for my exams. I ended up getting an A* in Additional Science overall. Thank you so, so much, I could not have achieved this grade without the help of the fantastic videos – definitely worth the price you pay!

LaurenAugust 2016


I’d just like to say a massive thank you. I was getting Cs/Ds on my tests in Year 10 and 11 and because of these videos I got As in both my Core and Additional! It helped me to stress less knowing I had watched all the videos and taken everything in, so thank you very much  :))

AmyAugust 2016


Best investment I have made in my life – without my-GCSEscience I couldn’t have got my 3 A* in Triple Science!!

RachelAugust 2016


My son used your videos for his GCSE revision. He got 3 A* … I recommend your videos to anyone revising for GCSE science. As a parent, I would say they are well worth the money you are charging for them – far, far better value than employing a private tutor.

KarenDecember 2014


Thank you for your videos and worksheets, I achieved 3 A*s purely by using them consistently along with my revision notes. They are so amazing and I went up by around two grades. Thank you so much, would definitely recommend to anyone!

AtiyaAugust 2016


I want to thank you so much for helping me get an A*/A in Double Science, I couldn’t be happier.  The videos have proved so helpful and detailed, that I knew information that even my friends weren’t aware of. In all honesty, without my-GCSEcience I may not have been able to achieve these grades.

AmberAugust 2016


I would like to thank you for providing the best GCSE Science revision material on the internet which provided me with everything I needed to achieve straight As in Science.

FinnAugust 2016


Thank you so much for making all these videos! Before I started using them I was on Cs and Ds, I started watching them for my revision in the lead up to the exams and got As in Biology and Physics and a B in Chemistry! I can honestly say I couldn’t have done it without you!

AnnaNovember 2015


I just wanted to thank you for your resources. I achieved 3 A*s in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. This was definitely achieved with help from my-GCSEscience. I was on a C/D in Biology after my mocks at Christmas but managed to get an A*!

ElliotAugust 2016


These videos were all I watched for the past year revising for my GCSEs, and I achieved 2 A*s in Chemistry and Biology and an A in Physics – something that I thought was impossible for me. It was all down to the videos they were honestly amazing and I can’t thank or recommend my-GCSEscience enough!

AmeliaAugust 2016


100% of my revision was through this site and I ended up with an A* in each science. Going from a current grade E in year 10 to a B in year 11 then a to an A* in the real exam was a progression I would not have been able to have achieved without my-GCSEscience. Seriously good quality and tells you exactly what you need to know.
