About me

Hello! My name is Tarek and I have just finished a-levels in june 2018. I’m currently studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge with the intention of specialising in Organic Chemistry in the future. I have sat the new AQA a-level chemistry and biology specifications an A* in chemistry (261/300) and an A* in biology (178/260). I have also done the old spec edexcel maths and further maths, and received over 90% in most of my exams, 7 of which were above 95%, so I am able to tutor in maths a level...

I have also done the old spec edexcel maths and further maths, and received over 90% in most of my exams, 7 of which were above 95%, so I am able to tutor in maths a level too.


I chose to study natural sciences as I believe a scientist must have a broad knowledge of all the disciplines before specialising, and as I love biology and chemistry, I saw this as a great opportunity to further my knowledge on both subjects, alongside maths.

About my sessions

As I have done the new specifications for chemistry and biology, I know exactly what is expected of the student as I have sat the exam myself. Before the lesson I will ask for all the topics covered at school, and a ranking of which they feel most confident in. I will then start working through these topics in the actual lessons. I’ll start the lesson by explaining the topic, pausing every so often to make sure the student is understanding and to take any questions. Then I’ll quiz the student...

I’ll start the lesson by explaining the topic, pausing every so often to make sure the student is understanding and to take any questions. Then I’ll quiz the student using quick fire questions that I have created. Finally, we’ll end the session on some past exam questions related to the topic.


I think the most important thing to encourage learning is interest, and in order to spark this interest in the student, I’ll make sure that my lessons are original and are also very interactive. I’ll also include some off-spec content which will help understanding exactly where the topic fits in the field of science (and if studying AQA a level biology and aiming for the top grade, you must include off-spec content in your essay so this will help too).


Alongside the actual lessons, I’ll help to plan revision for mock exams and real exams, using my planning techniques as a template.
