Enthusiastic Oxford University Biochemistry Graduate, keen to tutor Biology and Chemistry to students in Darlington and Newton Aycliffe

Methodology

As an enthusiastic learner, I've developed a number of successful ways to learn. I understand that different people learn in different ways and believe in trialling lots of techniques to optimise learning. Further, I am keen to inspire students and provide context to what they are learning to help them build a genuine interest in the area. I believe my cheerful personality and empathetic approach helps students maintain positivity and confidence even when they are struggling.
As a relatively young tutor, I believe I can use this to connect better with students and I also understand how exam boards work etc.
As an Oxford University Grad I know things outside of the average syllabus in Biology/ Chemistry/ Biochemistry fields - so if the Student is interested in learning things outside of the syllabus, I can help!
Please message me and we can discuss the individual needs of your child.

Background

Throughout my time in academia I have taken oppotunities to help my fellow Students.
I have always loved learning and the pursuit of knowledge is a gift that I have been privileged to pass on to my students.
My aim is to develop an individuals confidence around a subject and give them skills they can apply to all areas in education.
