My teaching style revolves around you. Since I have a plethora of knowledge in Biology and Chemistry, I can tailor the knowledge around what you need to know and expand on the knowledge so that it would be of use to you when you enter into university. For example, at A level biology, it is expected that students understand the basics of glycolysis and Krebs cycle, whereas I would like you to understand it and then incorporate the learning, contextualise it so that you could apply it to future studies. This has been proven to work, to help students understand the concepts and then apply them on exams so that they are not learning for the sake of a grade but are learning for the sake of wanting to learn and understand and gain a greater appreciation for the concepts, applicable to their chosen degree.
My lessons are tailored to you! I would first take what you already know, and work on what you don’t. I base my lessons on the criteria set by the exam boards, underlining what needs to be taught and going through each syllabus point to make sure everything is understood. Once taught, I then help make revision materials like notecards, posters or mind maps. All of this helps aid active recalling which is revision technique I help teach each of my students. Once a topic is taught, I go through some exam-style questions and how examiners are likely to ask questions based on the syllabus. I also provide further exam questions for the tutee to take away and practise.
Throughout my teachings, I go through revision techniques which is something not many tutors help with. Coming from a very scientific background, I’ve enhanced my revision techniques and have tried everything to now know what works and what doesn’t. I also help with exam technique too. This is probably the most important lesson to be learnt as you may know the content, but without knowing how to answer the questions, you won’t get any marks for knowing the content.
I am a medical student, prior I had studied Biochemistry at the University of Nottingham. I have extensive experience in the fields of both biology and chemistry. I have previously taught A level students privately and helped them achieve their full potential and aim them for higher grades so that they could meet their offers of studying health allied courses, which require exceptional grades

Work experiences include teaching local students in Nottingham and Greater Manchester how to revise the concepts expected for their GCSEs and A levels and advise them on the best possible routes to take when applying for university. Since studying Biochemistry, I have been able to contextualise the concepts required at A levels Biology and Chemistry, so that when I teach the content, students have a greater appreciation for the taught subject and can apply them in any given scenario, hence during exams students are able to perform at a greater rate.
Hamzah is an amazing chemistry tutor. He is a very talented and well educated individual. My child has obtained substantial amount of knowledge during this difficult time of covid-19. Highly recommend!
I've hired many tutors for my child but never has one had as much impact as hamzah, results were very clear to see and my child loved attending his tutor sessions; always friendly and bright.
Hamzah has been an excellent tutor for our daughter. He is very reliable and professional and has a kind supportive manner. He has an enthusiasm for chemistry which encouraged our daughter immensely to develop her own interest and understanding. He was always positive and sensitive but at the same time encouraged study to a higher level. His feedback to parents is very helpful. We would definitely recommend him.
I have been struggling with some chemistry and biology topics. This session really helped me to understand them. I loved how he put things into context and I am now able to understand much clearer the importance of topics at medical school because of the help he provided to me at finals
Thank you. You helped me get through finals.
Hamzah is incredibly knowledgeable and very understanding!
Hamzah is a great tutor and has helped me achieve my predicted grades for A level bio and chem where I got A* and A respectively. He helped me contextualise the knowledge and has made it very easy to understand the learning objectives. As a result, I now attend KCL for Medicine and am able to understand everything I a greater depth as Hamzah helped me visualise my learning and helped me with my revision technique. I am really grateful for choosing him as a tutor - 11/10 recommend
