The Wonderful World of Science Explained: Biology and Chemistry Help in London

Methodology

I would be more than happy to work through Primary, IB, KS3, GCSE, A-level, and at the university level. I am specialised in all aspects of biology, as well as general chemistry and biochemistry. My methodology includes so much more than a simple memorization and recalling of facts. I find it crucial to have an actual understanding of how to approach scientific questions, and how to reason through them. This is a critical thinking skill that will allow you to tackle any tough question, as well as benefit you in other areas of life. Nature is elegant, beautiful, and genius, and my approach will allow you to appreciate (and perhaps love!) the wonders of nature more than fear its difficulty. I believe that learning can be fun, and mastering a challenge can be extremely rewarding. These are the outcomes that I strive for my students to achieve.

Experience

I love science and I enjoy helping others feel the same way. I received my bachelor's degree in biology and chemistry, a master's in medical biotechnology, and am currently pursuing a PhD in cell biology. I have tutored at the university level in cell biology, organic chemistry, and biochemistry. Biology and chemistry are my specialities, however I am capable in tutoring in other areas of science. I have also tutored small children in basic science.

As a science student myself, I know what it's like to feel confused or stuck on a difficult subject in science. There is no better feeling than having an expert walk you through the concepts, and overcoming the confusion. That is my primary goal in tutoring others. Science should not be viewed as a huge obstacle, but rather a journey of critical thinking and appreciation of the wonders of nature. As a student, my schedule is very flexible, and I was once in your shoes! Let's work through any scientific concepts together.
