Neuroscience student offering tutoring in Biology, Chemistry, Psychology or maths and English

Methodology

My teaching method is a combination of Visual (Diagrams, Drawings, written material) and conversational particularly for those wanting to learn English. For younger children I try to incorporate the use of arts and crafts or props or a ‘class companion’. For students with struggles in learning I will assess and arrange a time to discuss how you have learnt best previously. If a student is dyslexic, we would try a picture based learning or audio based, for example.

Experience

I am a Neuroscience Honours degree student. I have a high academic background leaving high school with 14 distinction GCSEs and predicted distinction for my BSc honours. I have been working with people and children within the church community for seven years
