I'm a third year medical student at the University of Leeds, and I teach biology at GCSE and A level. I really enjoyed biology at school, securing an A* at GCSE and A level, and I love to help students understand the fundamental concepts to make biology interesting and intuitive, rather than a rote-learning exercise.
I've tutored online for a year and my students say they have enjoyed my lessons and significantly improved their grades.
I like to teach by reviewing what the student understands already and making clear the aims of each lesson to make sure we meet the desired target. I use past paper questions, quizzes and memory aids to help students remember and apply what they've learnt in exam situations. I am flexible, adapting my teaching style based on what students respond to best, and my previous students have found me friendly, caring and patient.
I have tutored online for a year. In this time, I have taught 6 students consistently, ranging from GCSE to undergraduate pre-med students, and my feedback and 5-star ratings suggest students enjoyed my lessons and achieved the grades they had aimed for.

I have finished my fourth year of Medicine at the University of Leeds and am currently studying a Masters in Clinical Neurology at Sheffield.
I received Excellence awards in Science for Key Stage 3, 4 and 5, as well as A*s in GCSE and A-level Chemistry and Biology
I have taught anatomy, physiology and embryology to first year medical students in preparation for their exams, alongside my online tutoring, giving me significant teaching experience.
Perfect! I can't recommend Umamah enough. She has a fantastic teaching manner, is professional and engaging, and, takes a lot of time/effort to plan each lesson. My daughter has really enjoyed her tutorials and we look forward to continuing with Umamah next year (Biology 'A' Level).
Incredibly conscientious, engaged and motivated student. Really enjoyed teaching her!

Learning isn't a problem, anatomy lessons for all!
Taking physiology lessons has never been easier: you're going to learn new skills.
