About the lesson
Whilst at University I began my own tutoring business and have successful experience with both GCSE and A Level students in a range of subjects and abilities. I try to make lessons fun as well as educational and encourage the students to tackle questions outside of their comfort zone by giving them confidence in their knowledge and ability. I often use ‘real world’ examples to explain concepts in order to aid memorisation of key information that the student can then remember more easily in the exam. I have found that this is a particularly successful technique because it is more a more interesting way of learning the key exam content and my previous students engage well.
For A level students especially I like to be able to answer the questions I remember my teachers often didn’t have time to explain in lessons – Why does this happen? Are these two processes linked? How is this used in real life? – and as an Oxford graduate I know these are the kind of questions that may be asked in university interviews or seminars. I think it is important to get students at higher levels asking these questions and in my tutorials I aim to answer any the students have as I feel this adds context and aids memorisation of content.
I am a recent graduate from Oxford University where I gained and integrated Masters in Biochemistry. Throughout my degree I studied molecular biology and organic chemistry as well as both pure and applied mathematics. I chose to specialise in Developmental Biology and Immunology for my masters but am passionate about all things science!
In my spare time I am training to be an airplane pilot and have just finished a ski season in France.
