An experienced and enthusiastic tutor with a PhD in Molecular Biology
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
Hi!
I am an experienced tutor with a PhD in Molecular Biology and a 1st Class Biology degree, both from the University of Nottingham and have a full DBS check. Over the last 18 months I have tutored over 1500 hours online.
I have been tutoring maths and science from KS2 through to A-level both online and in school and have had some fantastic results with students. One of my KS3 students has increased 20% on their school tests after just 12 weeks tuition and other students have been complimented on their achievements or moved up a set. My GCSE students all received the grades they needed to go onto their further studies and my A-level biology students received B-A*'s and all got into their first choice universities!
I appreciate how hard both GCSEs and A-levels can be and like to motivate my students to achieve the best they possibly can. I like to split work into three sections: firstly, I come up with unique methods of ensuring the understanding of complex material; secondly, I help students come up with creative methods of remembering the material, and finally I like to provide help in both exam preparation and technique.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me :)
