About me

Personally, I find encouraging an interest for academic subjects in my students to be an immensely rewarding and worthwhile experience.

Hi! I'm Sarah, a second-year student studying Biochemistry at the University of Oxford. I love my subject and I believe that my enthusiasm really shines through when I teach. Personally, I find encouraging an interest for academic subjects in my students to be an immensely rewarding and worthwhile experience. In addition to this, I’ve learnt a lot from my past teaching experience, including how to break subject matter down to make it clearer as well as using a variety of techniques to reinforce understanding of tricky topics.


Tutoring has played a large role in my life over recent years as I've taken on a teaching role at a local primary school, mentored GCSE students in the sciences and worked with St John Ambulance teaching and providing First Aid. Often, I find the best way of improving understanding of a topic is by teaching slightly above the level of the syllabus, meaning my students have a more concrete understanding of their subjects than their peers.

About my sessions

Everyone learns in different ways and at different rates- as a result the structure of my lessons will largely depend on you and how you learn. It is likely that sessions will focus on one concept or subtopic, in which I will explain the topic and then we will go through exam questions from your exam board, with the ultimate goal of you being able to tackle an exam question confidently without assistance. However, this is completely flexible and if you have other requests I am more than happy...

Everyone learns in different ways and at different rates- as a result the structure of my lessons will largely depend on you and how you learn. It is likely that sessions will focus on one concept or subtopic, in which I will explain the topic and then we will go through exam questions from your exam board, with the ultimate goal of you being able to tackle an exam question confidently without assistance. However, this is completely flexible and if you have other requests I am more than happy to adapt the structure of my lessons (for instance if you require a more intense revision session covering a broad range of topics).


I prepare for every session and am happy to set homework which would be in the form of electronic flashcards to aid with memorisation, or exam questions taken from a question bank categorised by topic, meaning that you can focus on what you find most difficult and so improve more quickly. If you wish, I am also happy to set assessments roughly every two weeks to thoroughly track your progress. In addition to this, after every session I send written feedback to parents describing what we have covered and made good progress on.


Please don't hesitate to book a free 15 minute session with me in which we can discuss an approach that would be best for you!

Sarah has been tutoring me for several weeks now and during this time my outcomes at school have improved dramatically. We have systematically been working through the topics on my AS biology and chemistry courses and she has provided clear explanations and backed these up with further topic questions for me to cover. She has been very encouraging and I feel she is helping me fulfil my real potential.

I am really enjoying working with Sarah. She understands her subject well and is very patient and explains concepts clearly. She follows each topic up with exam questions to ensure you have understood the topic fully. I think I will make good progress as we continue to work together.

Sarah is a great talented teacher, she puts in a lot of effort and tailers the lessons to our needs. I found her very professional and always available for any questions or requests. And above all our 10 yrs old daughter really enjoys her lessons and looks forward to it, that's says it all.
