Neuroscience BSc student tutoring up to A Level biology, chemistry and maths.

Methodology

I very much have a ‘practice makes perfect’ attitude to teaching, and encourage my students to actually do the questions rather than just learn the theory behind it, which I know so many are tempted to do when faced with such a large and daunting syllabus. I have worked with pupils of varied ability, so I am used to adapting my teaching style to fit my students.

Experience

I’m a Neuroscience Bsc first year student at King’s College London, and I’ve been tutoring since I was in year 10. I studied Biology, Chemistry, and Maths A Level and English Language AS Level, achieving A’s and B’s. I’ve tutored children from ages 11 to 16, working everything from entrance exam practice, to GCSEs and just plain consolidation of knowledge. I have also worked with primary school children, teaching very basic science.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £3

Details

For A Level tuition, I charge £12-£15 an hour, and for GCSE and below, I charge £10.
