I found the teaching very broad yet straight to the point. This profound a greater interest and made me feel more keen towards learning and striving towards the aim. Complex information was broken down in to simple answers in a way where the student can feel they understand the information and retain it's information. Was a pleasure.

Farida is a fantastic tutor – her direct approach and knowledge of A-level biology is second to none; the time she invests in you, means students get the results they want. She will sit down with you, assess your needs and gaps in knowledge and starts tutoring you straight away.

Farida also has a lot of experience as an examiner, and helps you improve your exam technique by ensuring your answers are more concise and specific to your exam board. I would highly recommend her to future students.
