My sessions are flexible to each individual’s needs but my general layout is as follows:
1) A short 5-10 minute review of the previous session’s work to check understanding and recap any important points.
2) A typical taught section lasting around 40 minutes using either revision notes or PowerPoints depending on the subject/topic
3) A 10 minute section to look through example questions and work through them with the student, explaining how to analyse and answer the question type whilst also testing their knowledge from the session.
4) (optional) setting homework usually either to produce a specific revision resource for their own learning later or a question set which I will mark the following week and provide feedback on during the review section. I keep this part optional as some students will have heavier workloads than others and may not need the added stress of extra homework every week.
All online lessons will be carried out via an online whiteboard with an optional video chat setting. The whiteboard will be converted to a PDF for the students to view at a later date. In addition to this the sessions will be recorded as an MP4 file for the students to replay when revising. (This is an optional feature and I will discuss it with every student during their first session).
I’m a medical student at university who has been providing voluntary A-level biology tutoring sessions for the last 5 months during the Covid 19 pandemic to year 12 students who have been unable to attend school. Other tutoring experience includes both group and 1 to 1 sessions with students wishing to apply to medical school on a variety of things including interview preparation and entrance exam practice.
I am looking for work as a tutor for students that are studying sciences and maths at GCSE level as well as biology at A-level. I am able to offer support beyond tutoring students to their academic studies, whether that be working with them to structure a university application or preparing them for interviews if they wish to pursue a career in the medical field.

Online Tutoring | Coronavirus Tutoring Initiative
APRIL 2020 – PRESENT
During the last five months after having to move home from university, I took up a volunteering role alongside my studies in which I tutored two A-level biology students who were no longer able to attend school for two hours a week each. One of my students is also applying to medical school in October so I split our tutor hours to half biology A-level content and half preparation for the medical school entrance exam.

Travelling – I recently spent a month travelling through Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia where I spent time trekking through rainforest and carrying out various volunteering opportunities. The trip was funded from two years of fundraising and all excess money was donated to charities in Vietnam and Laos as well as to cancer research.
Volunteering - I spent three months volunteering to teach Shotokan Karate to students in my local club in 2016. In Laos I volunteered for three days in an elephant sanctuary feeding and cleaning elephants and learning how to encourage ethical, sustainable tourism and consumerism to support the local wildlife. In Vietnam I spent a week in a rural village helping with repairs and teaching English and maths to the children. I spent six months volunteering at Battledown Centre for Children and Families, working with children with special needs in a classroom assistant role.
Very good tutor for biology! I’ve thoroughly understood everything he’s taught me! Highly recommend Cam!
Really helpful and keen to help me with my UCAT. He gave me a very good understanding to get me started with my revision and explained all the strategies and types of questions very well.
