Biomedical Science Student, offering tailored lectures and writings help depending on the individual's requirements from GCSE till University level

Methodology

I teach using different learning techniques like mind mapping, filling the blanks, visualising the concept, videos, past papers, creating own questions, creating a story, etc.
I plan lessons and tailor resources according to student’s needs.
As a tutor, I am a very flexible and easy-going person. I am capable of creating a friendly environment where respect, motivation, and self-determination is essential for achieving the desired goals. I use different learning techniques to help students gain the most, for example, making use of mind maps, creating own questions and understanding a complicated concept in a story format.

Experience

I aspire to be a part of such a field that supports others and positively transforming lives. Moving from Pakistan to England has played an important role in developing multicultural awareness in me and experienced two different education systems. I volunteered as a Biology and Chemistry tutor, in 2019, and my student got A*s in both subjects. I have also been a mentor at university, for a year. I am able to grasp the situation, communicate in simple language, make students comfortable, and build up their confidence. I listen, provide guidance, and make students believe that they can contact me for any help. Along with biology, I am happy to help with any biomedical science undergraduate module and academic/professional writings.

Really recommend Iqra as a biology tutor. I had met her through The Access Project from my school. She has helped me understand challenging content and develop new skills of learning the specification during GCSE which i still use today in A-Level. Although I did not spend many months with this tutor, my grades had improved tremendously. By the end I had achieved an A*, and that was mainly due to the support I had received from Iqra.
