Approach for 7/11/13plus Maths exam preparation:
Using past papers to identify weak areas and then teach and give more practice questions to improve my students understanding of the topic. I teach and test my students throughout the lesson and ask questions to enhance and reinforce their learning. All notes are emailed, so students can use them for studying and exam revision.
Approach to tutoring Maths (KS2 - GCSE level):
Firstly, through small discussion, the student needs such as whether the student wants to focus on the course content, exam techniques or both, and learning style are communicated to ensure that the lessons are tailored. I will then prepare subsequent lessons based on Maths specification (outlines learning objectives that students need to know for assessments) and student's learning profile. I prepare the lessons in advance and deliver lessons via Zoom whiteboard space (to show Maths workout) and PowerPoint which my student can see and engage throughout the lesson.
I start my lesson by introducing the topic and lesson objectives or learning targets. To keep the lesson interactive, I include diagrams and ask questions to improve my students' understanding of the material. The lesson is usually summed up with a summary of the main points covered in the lesson and the suggestion of relevant resources that might help to enhance my students' understanding of the topic. At the end of each session, I offer my students an opportunity to suggest topics of interest to be covered in the next lesson. This will help tailor the lesson to meet students' needs and targets, so they gain as much as possible from each lesson. I welcome my students to email me at least 48 hours before the next session if they have any questions related to their previous lessons or topics they wish to explore further in the next lesson.
To boost my students' confidence and grades, I guide them to use different revision strategies and tips to remember key facts within my lessons and encourage them to use active recall and spaced repetition to reinforce their learning. I further offer support and recommend them to complete past papers to bridge gaps in knowledge and skills to ace their exams.

I have achieved a First-Class Honours in BSc Biomedical Science and won the Institute of Biomedical President Prize for my outstanding academic achievements (2015-2018). Through my role as a Student Representative during my undergraduate, I collaborated with the administration to ensure that all students receive a high-quality learning experience. Following this, I successfully completed MSc in Neuroscience achieving a 2:1 at King's College London in 2019, where I worked in a team delivering lecture-recordings to the students as well as a teaching assistant. I thoroughly enjoyed studying science and found biological processes most fascinating, especially the underlying cellular and molecular mechanisms and their significance in health and disease.
Tutoring offers me the opportunity to share my passion for science and skills developed throughout my studies such as strategies to understand complicated concepts in a simplified way and effective exam preparation techniques to help other students to thrive in and beyond their school exams.

Ume is an excellent tutor. She is friendly, intuitive and helpful, and her teaching style is clear and methodical. Her lessons are interactive and engaging. She provides lots of examples throughout the lesson and helped me to work through them which I found very helpful. If I don’t understand something she provides clear explanations making it easy to understand the most complex concepts. I am extremely pleased with her tuition, so I would 100% recommend her. Thank you, Ume
Ume is a phenomenal tutor and she works hard to prepare well-organised and engaging teaching lessons. She is kind and approachable. Her teaching style is encouraging, and she does best to teach every lesson and uses lots of examples and practice questions to assess my strengths and weaknesses to ensure that she provides personalised learning content in every lesson. I felt more confident now than I was during my first lesson. I am really enjoying my tutoring lessons. I would strongly recommend Ume as a tutor.

Ume promptly responds to my requests for scheduling tutoring sessions and thoroughly prepare all the teaching lessons. I feel very lucky to have found Ume at the right time. She is exceptionally organised, reliable and explains complicated topics clearly and in-depth to ensure that I understood each topic. She is patient, so I feel supported and encouraged throughout the lesson because of her personalised tutoring approach. I am extremely happy and enjoyed all of my seven lessons with her. I felt more confident after each lesson and I look forward to continuing my tutoring sessions with her. I have already recommended her to my friends and family! I would highly recommend Ume's excellent teaching ability and skills to anyone. Thank you so much, Ume!!
