I also offer proofreading to perfect the spelling and grammar of written work.
I also offer medical school entrance exam coaching, as well as practice interviews.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
I know learning can be a daunting task, especially if a subject doesn't seem to come naturally. But don't lose faith! I'll help you think about subjects and concepts in a different way, and it will soon become easier.
Amy is one of our best tutors. They have a high-quality profile, verified qualifications, a quick response time, and great reviews from students!
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have tutored a wide range of students in:
-AS and A level subjects - Human Biology, Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics.
-UKCAT, BMAT, personal statement advice and interview practice - the students have all been offered places at their chosen universities.
From all of these students I have received good feedback.
From my mid-teens I have given one-on-one tutoring to younger students through a peer-to-peer scheme at my school, tutoring in mathematics. Having a younger brother and sister, I have also help them with studying in all subjects.
Last summer I taught carers in an orphanage in Ghana about healthcare issues affecting the children with disabilities. By doing this, I can communicate complex and important ideas with clarity, despite there being a language barrier.
At UCL I undertook a teaching course whereby we learnt how to teach small and large groups of students, and then taught sexual education
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Yes, an enhanced CRB disclosure.
Amy is a terrific tutor. She helped my brother and myself through the BMAT and Medical School Interview process and at every session I found I was able to improve my performance by using her advice. What I found most useful was the fact she was really able to draw on her own experiences to help us, because she had been through the same process a few years earlier. I would definitely recommend her as a mentor during the Medical School application process.

Learning isn't a problem, chemistry lessons for all!
Taking school science lessons has never been easier: you're going to learn new skills.
