Biomedical science undergraduate brings the tips you need for academic success to your home!

Methodology

I tutor all age-groups in science and maths. My teaching style comprises: preparation of comprehensive as well as aesthetically pleasing notes for my students, regular practice questions to build their confidence followed by more abstract problems to further challenge them.

Background

I have been giving tuition intermittently for the last 4 years to 4 students ranging from primary to GCSE level. One of the students was an adult learning english as a second language. Her spoken and written english improved tremendously.
