Neuroscience postgraduate with more than three years of tutoring experience, providing lessons in subjects from the fields of biology and chemistry. Based in North/Central London.

Methodology

I am a neuroscience graduate, studying at University College London. My main goal is for a student to gain a thorough understanding of the topic, and to become well acquainted with the examination techniques. In order to achieve that, I provide personalised exercises as well as use the examples from past exam papers. And, since I am a massive science nerd, I will do my best to try and show you how you can apply what you have learned to everyday life!

Experience

I have been tutoring for over three years and in this time I have worked with 5 different students. I have over 100 hours of experience tutoring GCSE biology, chemistry, and physics and over 20 hours of experience teaching 11+ maths. The student I have most recently worked with improved from receiving Cs to getting straight As within 3 months of tuition (with only weekly lessons).

Rates

Transportation Fee : £5
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £90
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £180

Details

I generally do not charge for travel as I intend to cycle, and will therefore only do so if I need to take the London Underground. In that case, I will charge the off-peak fare.
