I usually structure my sessions based on topics chosen by the student, primarily focusing on weaker areas. I have a flexible timetable and can adjust the length/number of lessons as required. I am in an ideal position to understand students and communicate information to them in a manner which is comprehensible and meaningful. I am also able to provide valuable exam techniques to help them to perform at their highest level under exam conditions. I am friendly and approachable, and will take time to address the student's individual requirements.
I have several years of experience tutoring a number of GCSE students for their Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics exams and have received very positive feedback. I completed my A level exams in summer 2017 (Maths, Biology and Chemsitry grades A* A* A) and my GCSE exams in summer 2015 (11 GCSEs all grade A*). I will be taking up my unconditional offer to study Biomedical Sciences at UCL in September 2018. I am able to provide certificates to support my qualifications upon request.
I accept payment per session or in blocks. If you wish to cancel or move a lesson you will not be charged.
