About me

Hi! I’m Annalise, I’m originally from Newcastle and I’m in my first year studying Biological Sciences at Durham University. I found the process of exams and applying for university to be very stressful but ultimately very rewarding - I achieved 9A* 3A at GCSE, A*AA at A Level (as well as an A* in the EPQ), and received offers to study biosciences at five Russel Group universities. In addition to this, I was also employed for a summer by a well-known revision website, creating revision notes a...

Hi! I’m Annalise, I’m originally from Newcastle and I’m in my first year studying Biological Sciences at Durham University. I found the process of exams and applying for university to be very stressful but ultimately very rewarding - I achieved 9A* 3A at GCSE, A*AA at A Level (as well as an A* in the EPQ), and received offers to study biosciences at five Russel Group universities. In addition to this, I was also employed for a summer by a well-known revision website, creating revision notes and other resources for GCSE and A Level Biology. All of this has given me a clear understanding of what is required to perform well in biology. I can help you with any aspect of that - from explaining any concept, simple or complex, to helping with revision techniques, memorisation, how to make revision resources, accessing resources for your exam board, prioritisation, writing a personal statement, or anything else you might be struggling with. All of this will take place in a relaxed, friendly and low-pressure environment. I can tutor any exam board at GCSE or A Level - my speciality is Edexcel A Level (A or B). I can also help with GCSE Chemistry and Maths. 


I love biology - it’s interesting, complex and fast-paced - and I hope I can help you to love it too. I hope to speak to you soon, or if not, good luck in finding a tutor and in your exams!

About my sessions

We can spend all of our sessions focusing on whichever topics you’re particularly struggling with, and if you let me know which those are in advance, then I can collect some suitable resources for us to use. I can also consult your specification to make sure we’re covering exactly the correct material - at GCSE and A Level, it is crucial, and often under-looked, that your learning should be highly guided by the specification. If need be, we can also work on exam technique. A significant propo...

We can spend all of our sessions focusing on whichever topics you’re particularly struggling with, and if you let me know which those are in advance, then I can collect some suitable resources for us to use. I can also consult your specification to make sure we’re covering exactly the correct material - at GCSE and A Level, it is crucial, and often under-looked, that your learning should be highly guided by the specification. If need be, we can also work on exam technique. A significant proportion of advancing a grade isn’t just learning the content, but learning how to communicate the content in the way that your exam board wants.

In biology, almost all concepts build on from other concepts, and so at the beginning of the session we can make sure you understand all of the preliminary content to the topic you want to work on. There’s no shame in going back to basics - this ensures you have a solid foundation to build the rest of your learning on. For the body of the session, we can look at the content you want to tackle. Repetition is key to learning, so we can do this in a number of different ways - for example, by using notes, then a diagram, then exam questions. Finally, we’ll review the content that you just learned. Between sessions, I can point you in the right direction of some resources. If you’d like me to mark anything, I’m very happy to do so.

Everybody learns differently - I’d like to help you to work out what works best for you.
