I have A levels in Biology, Chemistry and Maths; I sat the new reformed A levels, so I have experience of the new A level syllabuses. I chose medicine because I love science, especially biology (which I achieved an A* in at A level). Having sat a lot of exams myself, I have picked up lots of tips about how to revise and how to break down challenging topics.

About my sessions

My main aim is to work with students to help boost their confidence in the subject. I like to ask the student what they want to learn from the session before hand so that we have a clear goal e.g. improving technique on longer mark questions.


I tailor my lessons to how individual students learn best and I am flexible in my teaching methods. I often use past exam questions as from my experience these are a great way to boost marks.

Examples of things I have focused sessions on in the past are helping students make their own revision notes, planning out revision timetables with students, going through mock papers and topic specific lessons with a mix of teaching and practice exam questions.

Offered extra time to compensate for time lost which wasn't even her fault. Also understood many of the questions we went through and have gained confidence to at least attempt them

Katie went through each possible exam question in great detail, and took away the fear of dealing with complex questions by breaking each part down into something more manageable. Definitely coming back, Thank you!

Katie was really helpful, she went through many exam questions explaining how to approach them and how to gain maximum marks. Katie also was more than happy to explain content I didn’t understand along the way!
