I focus on ensuring that the student is able to understand the fundamentals of biology as opposed to simply memorising the textbook. I also believe that it is equally important to understand the exam format and what the exam boards expect of students to get the highest grades.
I am an Imperial College London student who graduated with a first class degree (hons) in Biological Sciences and have recently undertaken my Masters in Molecular and Cellular Biosciences. I have previously tutored A-level and GCSE students in biology and have been privately tutoring for the past three years.
