About me

Hi! I'm in my second year of Med school and having been in your place not too long ago, I remember just how intimidating the GCSEs and A levels can seem at first. However, I'm here to help get you through them and achieve the goals you set for yourself whilst hopefully reminding you just how fun andr exciting the sciences can be! I've tutored GCSE students before and it was wonderful to watch them grow more bold and confident over the year in their subjects. I have experience tutoring at various schools as well which allowed me to develop a more professional tutoring style and gave me experience working with a variety of different types of students. I'm also happy to answer questions about applying to universities and tell you any tips and tricks I have for making your application a success.

About my sessions

In previous tutoring lessons, I usually just focused on topic areas that the students told me they found more difficult or whichever topic they had covered last in class. I'm happy to follow the same structure or go through the syllabus methodically and cover it all chapter by chapter. Each student learns differently and I adapt my style as needed in order to tailor the sessions to suit individual needs.

Usually, my classes begin with a brief consolidation from the last session to make sure there are no gaps and you understood everything so far. Then I'll go on to explaining the new material, using textbooks or other resources to help demonstrate my points. At the end I'll probably throw in a few questions to check you've grasped what we've covered. My classrooms have a friendly and quite relaxed atmosphere and I encourage lots of questions as it's one of the best ways to build confidence and improve knowledge.

I'm also happy to collate end of topic tests and point you towards additional resources if you'd like to do some self study, or mark any questions or past papers you’ve done so far.
