Oxford Biochemistry graduate teaching biology and biochemistry up to degree level in London

Methodology

I think teaching science requires a lot of questions to be asked, both by the tutee and the tutor, so I'm always asking questions to work out exactly what my students know about the topic we're working on so we can iron out any misunderstandings and build a proper comprehension of the subject together. Learning to just parrot the correct answers is an incredibly unsatisfying and ultimately pointless way of learning, so I avoid that as much as possible and encourage my students to think about the theory behind what they're expected to learn, so that they can work out the answers in exams rather than relying on answers they crammed in a panic.
I'm a very relaxed person - I don't think people learn well in stressful situations, and so I'm always happy to have a laugh or go off topic for a minute if I think it'll help my students concentrate better for the rest of the session. I'm also a very patient person, which means I'm very happy to spend an entire hour on a single idea if that's what we need to do. I've spent enough time tutoring to know that some concepts just don't work in some people's heads, and so I'm always comfortable spending time working on something from different angles if it helps the student.

Experience

I graduated from Oxford in 2018 with a master's degree in biochemistry and I started tutoring in 2015. In that time have helped students pass GCSE's and meet A-Level requirements to get them into their first choice universities, as well as helping university students work on assignments and understand topics for exams. I've taught for well over 500 hours and feel completely comfortable with all levels of biology.
