About me

I am lucky enough to say that I am halfway through my fourth year of studying medicine at the University of Bristol. I love studying medicine because every day you see something new. Given the scientific foundation of a medical degree, I have to keep up to date with biology and chemistry, making them ideal subjects for me to tutor. I also speak Spanish semi-fluently, and studied it up to A2 level, making it another subject I enjoy tutoring. I am going away to practice medicine in Peru in July...

I am lucky enough to say that I am halfway through my fourth year of studying medicine at the University of Bristol. I love studying medicine because every day you see something new. Given the scientific foundation of a medical degree, I have to keep up to date with biology and chemistry, making them ideal subjects for me to tutor. I also speak Spanish semi-fluently, and studied it up to A2 level, making it another subject I enjoy tutoring. I am going away to practice medicine in Peru in July, and so I have made sure that my Spanish is up to a pretty good level!


I have tutored for over 2 years now! I have always enjoyed learning, and try to help my students feel enthusiastic about their subjects. I also believe in studying "smart"; I could never understand why me teachers talked about topics that are not in the syllabus. I believe that for exam success, only the topics that will come up in the exams should be covered, and covered thoroughly.

About my sessions

I mainly tutor GCSE biology and chemistry, although I am happy to tutor GCSE Spanish as well.


I swear by using Past Papers, Examiner's Reports and Marking Schemes from the appropriate examination board for my students. This allows me to help my tutees to understand how to frame their answers to give examiners exactly what they are looking for and will help pupils to attain the highest grade brands. There is also no such thing as a silly question!

I mainly tutor GCSE biology and chemistry, although I am happy to tutor GCSE Spanish as well.


I swear by using Past Papers, Examiner's Reports and Marking Schemes from the appropriate examination board for my students. This allows me to help my tutees to understand how to frame their answers to give examiners exactly what they are looking for and will help pupils to attain the highest grade brands. There is also no such thing as a silly question!


The structure of my sessions will be to follow the exam board syllabus that pupils are expected to learn to ensure that all relevant content is covered. From having been tutored myself, I know that the only successful way to tutor is to make sessions engaging and interactive! I can vividly remember how quickly I would switch-off if I was not frequently being quizzed and tested by my tutor. Through keeping the student involved and testing them on the content we are covering, our sessions are much more likely to be recalled and remembered in an exam environment.


I find using a range of learning platforms helps to solidify knowledge and explain tricky concepts. From youtube to online resources to textbooks, the wider the variety the better! In my sessions I will apply this approach of using different sources of information to break down complicated concepts into simpler components so that my students can build up their knowledge from simpler foundations.
