Biology/Science tutor. Oxford. BA Neuroscience, PhD student University of Oxford. Rates from £20/hour. Previous GCSE Biology tutoring experience

Methodology

I'm Lydia, I am currently studying for a DPhil in Obstetrics & Gynaecology. I have just finished my BA Neuroscience from the University of Oxford (2:1). I have A-levels in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths (all A*) and an AS in Further Maths (A). I have 8 A*s at GCSE including sciences, maths and statistics.

I can give lessons in GCSE maths, biology, physics and chemistry. I can give A-level lessons in Biology.

I like to have a very practical/visual approach to teaching, with a focus on exam technique for those studying for specific exams. I am very happy to have a student led or tutor led lesson in which I can answer questions/explain specific topics or I can prepare a session. I like sessions to be fairly relaxed so students are happy to be open with their understanding. I am a very patient tutor and try to explain concepts in a variety of different ways.

Background

I have tutored in GCSE Biology before, on both occasions candidates C/D borderline and received C and B. Both these students I taught for a few months with weekly sessions. I tutored these students whilst I was studying my A-levels. One of my tutees I would tutor on all aspects of science (for the GCSE double science GCSE).

Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £150
