Biologist offering science lessons (math, geometry, chemistry) up High School level in Bristol

Methodology

My method is learning fast and exercise enough. Every student is different so if you want to improve your level you have to practice as well. My lessons are based on a previous review about the theme that you need to study. In this case I usually asked some exercise to check also the method that you have already studied at school with your ordinary teacher. Then I prepare ad hoc lesson to focus your attention on the subject and I will help you to solve problems or exercises to verify that my teaching is effective.

Background

I'm an hard worker biologist from Italy. I attended a Biology Master Degree in 2013 in Italy and I've been travelling since 2015. I started tutoring when I was a university student about 10 years ago. I usually prefer to teach private lesson so I can personalize the lesson to meet specific demands.
