6 years of helping students achieve their goals in school!
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
I obtained a first class degree in Neuroscience from University College London in 2018. After completing my Bachelors degree, I went on to pursue a degree in Medicine at Barts and the London School of Medicine.
I tutor Biology to A-level and IB-level students, as well as Coordinated Sciences (Biology, Chemistry, Physics) and English to KS3 and GCSE students. I am also fluent in Mandarin and give lessons to beginners and intermediate speakers. I assist high school students with composing personal statements for UCAS university applications, and have helped organise work experience placements which serve to enhance such university applications.
I have over 6 years of experience as a private tutor. I have worked with a diverse range of students from all educational levels and cultural backgrounds. As a tutor, I create a teaching environment that is comfortable, engaging, and encouraging. I take the time to understand each of my students’ strengths and weaknesses so that I am able to teach in a way that is most beneficial to them. My lessons provide students with the perfect opportunity to ask questions that may have been missed in a class environment. I am able to breakdown difficult concepts into manageable chunks of information, making learning a less daunting task for my students.
I am familiar with the syllabi of the various exam boards that I teach. In my lessons, I ensure that that not only is all content sufficiently covered, but also that new material is taught in a way that builds on old material. To overcome what I call “exam anxiety”, I categorise past paper questions by topic, and complete these questions with my students as we progress through the content of the syllabus. I have found this to be the most efficient method of preparation to maximise marks on exams. I have witnessed my students improve greatly, many developing a real passion for some of the subjects that I teach.
Please feel free to message me about any questions you may have, I would love to hear from you!
