Alternatively for proof work, essay writing, discussion around university applications and personal statements I have 24/7 email access.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
If you are considering tutoring, don't be afraid to ask for help.
Regular tutoring will always be of more benefit than cramming a few sessions into the 2-3 weeks before your exam.
Preparation is key if you want to understand and retain the information.
I recommend a session between once a week & once a fortnight, increasing as required in the few weeks prior to exam time.
Many students tell me they understand the information, but struggle with answering the questions on the exam paper.
This is an area we can focus on.

6 years experience of university lecturing on an intensive, highly regarded physiotherapy degree programme. This includes all aspects of HUMAN BIOLOGY
6 years experience of being an Admissions Co-ordinator.
I am responsible for making the decisions in regards to acceptance/rejection of UCAS applications & interviewing for the BSc (hons) Physiotherapy Degree Programme at Nottingham University.
As a lecturer, I am a module conveynor and deliver regular lectures and tutorials.
I have responsibility for marking submitted course work. I can use this knowledge to assist students with proof reading and essay writing.

- Tell me about some of your current students.
I have tutored over 12 AS / A-Level Biology students within the last academic year. I have been really pleased to see their commitment, significant improvement and growing confidence in the subject and as an individual.
I've worked with degree level students finding the jump from a-level to degree a challenge, focusing particularly on their academic writing skills.
I have also assisted a number of students gaining entry to foundation programmes and degree courses.
I have personal tutees within my employed university work - they have various individual requirements and I ensure that I am always available, on hand to support with submitted assignments.
