I am currently studying biomedical science at Cardiff Uni. Learning about the human body and the way it works really interests me because you get to know what's going on inside yourself! As well as studying for university, in my spare time I love to play classical guitar, having achieved grade 8 last year, it is something I enjoy doing to relax. Biology was my favorite subject in school and I am very passionate about it. I enjoyed revising for exams, I love to make 'pretty' notes so that they are easy to revise from. For me, using pictures and annotated diagrams is the best way to learn. I am a visual learner and I think it makes it easier to grasp things if it is explained in pictures rather than just words. To help my tutees improve I don't mind taking time to draw diagrams and explaining them. I understand the importance of sticking to a specification and having a high level of organisation to my notes and revision. I will teach from the exam board specification of the tutee to make sure that we don't miss any subject areas out and that they are fully prepared for the exam. The most important thing for me is that the tutee gains something valuable from the tutorial session, which will ultimately help them be successful in their exams. The way I will structure my tutorials is down to the tutee, we will do what ever is best to help them learn. At the start of the tutorial I will always listen to the tutee to find out what they need help with and we will go from there. I will spend time before the tutorial preparing materials. For example, drawing diagrams to help me explain a concept. I will research the exam board's style of exams, looking at past papers and putting together practice questions that we can work through together so the tutee has experience of how to answer questions correctly to gain the full amount of marks. This will also be a way for me to measure the tutee's progress and see how they are coming along. Most importantly, my tutorials will not be boring! I know from experience that there is nothing worse than being stuck in a classroom listening to a teacher talking in a monotone. It makes it very easy to lose attention and for your mind to wonder. I will make sure that my tutorials are interesting and captivating, something different from the normal classroom experience.
I've been tutoring biology for just over a year now having about 10 consistent students. Their results at GCSE (4 grade 9's) and A-Level (5 As and 1B) from the summer exams last year made me very proud! I will always aim to work with my tutees to get the highest grade possible!
GCSE level or below will be £2 less than the specified rate.
