Hi!

I'm Saskia and I am currently studying Molecular and Cellular Biochemistry at Oxford. I have always been fascinated by science, and I absolutely love doing Biochem as I have the opportunity to study life at an in depth level at such an amazing place!

During secondary and sixth form I tutored both mine and my brother's friends so I have experience with teaching a range of age groups and abilities. Also, through my involvement in local Girl Guiding I have worked with a lot of primary and secondary school aged children.

As someone who has suffered a lot from exam stress, particularly during A levels, I hope I can help calm your nerves and get the grades you deserve. :)

I also have experience in applying to Oxford as a state school student so am happy to help you through the daunting admissions process. My top tip for personal statements and interviews- be yourself!

About my sessions

I am very flexible in my teaching style and will always first ask a student to identify their problem topics so I can tailor futher sessions to fit their individual needs and ability level. Everyone learns differently, for example I am a visual learner so will often employ a lot of diagrams and mindmaps when teaching/studying.

For biology and chemistry I think it's important to review all the content and techniques in detail before moving on to going through practice exam papers whe...

I am very flexible in my teaching style and will always first ask a student to identify their problem topics so I can tailor futher sessions to fit their individual needs and ability level. Everyone learns differently, for example I am a visual learner so will often employ a lot of diagrams and mindmaps when teaching/studying.

For biology and chemistry I think it's important to review all the content and techniques in detail before moving on to going through practice exam papers when the student feels sufficiently prepared.

If you would like me to set homework and provide feedback on this during sessions I am more than happy to do so!

Good teacher, but has dropped out on tutoring me, which has caused me to fall behind in the subject she was teaching me.

She’s a good tutor. She makes her lessons fun and Alevel Biology seem a little easier. She also doesn’t hesitate to help if you have any questions outside the lesson space
