Uni Student looking to help students learn and excel! Passion and creativity!

Methodology

Having completed the rigorous 2-year course of the IB (History, Bio and Chem HL) I can now reflect on my experience and am able to share insight on how to achieve the best. The skills and experiences I have developed with the diploma are easily transferable to any other high school level syllabus.

Teaching has always been a passion of mine as I always find myself "learning out loud". That is learning and concretizing knowledge through easy communication and dialogue. I believe that every student is an "A student". In fact, as Michaelangelo says "every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it" - teaching should be a mirroring of this mentality!

Experience

My name is Francesca, I'm a first-year student at the University of Edinburgh studying Biomedical Sciences, and am looking to help students not only prepare for exams but also find a sense of satisfaction from their studies. As the daughter of a Germano-Italian couple, and as an American studying in a bilingual school in Paris (now living in Edinburgh), I see internationality as a bridge to efficiency – and the best way to connect with another!

Francesca's CV

PROFILE

My name is Francesca Spaeth, and I am an undergraduate student at the University of Edinburgh. I am currently studying Biomedical Sciences hoping to, later on, delve into either clinical research or medicine. I was born in the United States and grew up in Paris. My parents are both scientific researchers and their attempt at inclusivity showed me that information can be efficiently translated for children. I am enthusiastic, energetic and find the fun in everything I apply myself to. I am dedicated to projects that inspire me. For example, since attending university, I am the goalkeeper of the University of Edinburgh’s women’s football club and have been elected to uphold and organize the club socials and sponsorships next year.
