My teaching method is always focused on adapting to my students' needs and aims to offer a secure grasp of basic concepts but to extend that knowledge further beyond the specification to enable them to think critically.
I do not believe that there is a specific way to teach everyone and instead adapt my resources and lessons to best accommodate my students' learning style (which can involve some interesting demonstrations!).
As a tutor, I aim to help my students fulfil their potential and then reach beyond, with all students I have worked with showing vast improvements in their results from when I started with them as well as confidence in learning and utilising their knowledge.
I am a medical student studying at the University of Cambridge who has been tutoring for the last 5 years. As someone who has studied at a grammar school and sixth form and has achieved 13 A*s at GCSE (including an A* with Distinction in Further Maths) and a further 3 A*s at A-Level (for Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics), receiving various awards for academic achievements along the way, I appreciate the importance of academia and want to continue tutoring younger students.
I have taught students of all ages from 10 - 16 in a variety of subjects ranging from 11+ preparation to KS3, GCSE and A Level Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and many more.
Many of my students have gone on to achieve A*s at GCSE and A-Level and others have gotten into the grammar schools of their choice.
11+ Student: £20 p/h
KS3 Student: £ 21 p/h
GCSE Student: £22.50 p/h
A-Level Student: £25 p/h
Cancellation Policy: I must be informed of any cancellations at least 24 hours before the lesson.
A hard-working, highly organised and adaptive medical student with an excellent educational record, various experiences of succeeding in vastly differing environments and a goal to have an extensive and positive impact in the work environment. A highly approachable individual who is able to manage time effectively and work under pressure in order to solve problems. Motivated by challenges to tackle as an individual or through leading or working in a team to achieve the best outcomes.
