4th year medical student offering GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics lessons and A-level Biology and Chemistry lessons

Methodology

I like to base my teaching on the style the learner finds best. We initially agree on the way the learner wants to progress in the subject - which topics to cover first, what kind of resources to use (so for a visual leaner I would use a number of diagrams and images to explain any processes/concepts) and the length of time they would like to spend on each area. We then tackle it by thoroughly going over the content, resolving any misunderstandings and then attempting challenging questions. This is followed by detailed constructive feedback and answering any questions that the learner might still have. I find this method to be the most efficient in reinforcing what has been learnt but naturally for every individual the way they learn differs and so I adapt my way of teaching to match to the learner's style.

Experience

I am a medical student at the University of Leeds. I have been teaching GCSE Chemistry, Biology and Physics for two years. I also have past experience of teaching A-level Chemistry and Biology to my peers and younger pupils at my Sixth Form.
