My teaching method is not set, it would vary depending on the preferences and most effective methods I see are working on the individual. I would challenge their preferred method of learning from time-to-time which allows them to see they are making progress by adapting to new methods of learning content.
I am a recent Graduate of Queen Mary University of London, I studied Biochemistry for 3 years, so both Biology and Chemistry are my expertise. I have experience working with young people not via tutoring but via the NCS programme where I was a team leader and this taught me that there are numerous approaches with young people as not everyone can learn the same way. Different methods work better for different people, so I believe it is important to get to know who I tutor so I can implement the best method to help them achieve or exceed their potential!

I believe I am a hard worker and when I get set a task I initially find challenging, I find demanding tasks more motivating and enjoyable. Perseverance and patience were amongst the two most key aspects I learnt whilst being in charge of a team of 15 young people on NCS for the last 2 years during summer. Time management is something I excel in as I’ve always met my deadlines for any University coursework, I plan well ahead to make sure I am prepared and can at the end of the day say I gave it my 100%. I remain open-minded to being able to learn from my mistakes and acknowledge that I may not always get it perfect first time around. Peers would describe me as a social butterfly as I am chatty and approachable! I thrive in environments where I am able to use my personality in order to make a difference.
