About me

Hello! I'm Serena and I'm studying at Cambridge University for a degree in Natural Sciences, encompassing modules in Geology, Chemistry and mainly Biology. I am passionate about science and am adamant that it should be accessible and understandable by all and so I tutor to ensure that you will feel confident in your exams, and (hopefully) appreciate why science is amazing too.

Hello! I'm Serena and I'm studying at Cambridge University for a degree in Natural Sciences, encompassing modules in Geology, Chemistry and mainly Biology. I am passionate about science and am adamant that it should be accessible and understandable by all and so I tutor to ensure that you will feel confident in your exams, and (hopefully) appreciate why science is amazing too.

Whether you've dreamt of being a doctor since you were six and want to make sure you get that university place, or detest the subject and just want to pass the exams so you never have to do anything scientific again, I can cater to your needs! Having had the fun of going through GCSEs and A Levels, I can ensure that you'll be happy with your understanding of the subject and are able to take the exam as comfortably as possible. All levels of ability are welcome and I will individually tailor our sessions so that you get the most out of them!

About my sessions

Our online lessons will be tailored to fit the student. Whether you prefer going through exam questions and writing out possible answers or prefer to have diagrams shown to help explain concepts, I will do whatever makes learning easiest for you (as that is quite literally the whole point of this endeavour).

Typically, we would begin by discussing any immediate questions that have come up in lessons, homework or revision. Having clarified this, we would then move on to the bulk of the s...

Our online lessons will be tailored to fit the student. Whether you prefer going through exam questions and writing out possible answers or prefer to have diagrams shown to help explain concepts, I will do whatever makes learning easiest for you (as that is quite literally the whole point of this endeavour).

Typically, we would begin by discussing any immediate questions that have come up in lessons, homework or revision. Having clarified this, we would then move on to the bulk of the session which would focus on whatever is most suited for you. This could be: dissecting past paper questions to figure out the best approach to answering under time pressure, discussing larger topics to get a broader sense of what's going on, or going through a series of smaller questions of a topic to work through the content. This format is adaptable to whatever suits you best. Finally, we would round off with a summary of everything done that sessions and a discussion about what we'll tackle next time, to make sure I can get all the best resources in place beforehand.

At the beginning of our tutoring, we will also discuss our long-term goals (if you wanted a series of tutoring sessions) to make sure that we handle exactly what you want to get out of tutoring. This could range from confidence building to exam technique. After this, I'll do my best to make sure we achieve it!
