About me

I am a Biochemistry Masters degree student in my first year at Birmingham University. I absolutely love my subjects. I find it all so fascinating, the constantly changing and evolving world of science. I enjoy it all, from the tiniest of atoms and molecules to the grander effect they have in the form of biological processes and the organisms they make up. I am very friendly and love trying to help people understand things by giving them fun ways of learning that are a bit different. I have at...

I am a Biochemistry Masters degree student in my first year at Birmingham University. I absolutely love my subjects. I find it all so fascinating, the constantly changing and evolving world of science. I enjoy it all, from the tiniest of atoms and molecules to the grander effect they have in the form of biological processes and the organisms they make up. I am very friendly and love trying to help people understand things by giving them fun ways of learning that are a bit different. I have attended a TeachFirst two day training programme to enhance my teaching skills. I'll use analogies and make comparisons where I think it can aid learning. In a tutor session I will have some questions and activities to help further confidence in the topic and to make sure that everything is definitely understood and that I've done my job well! I've tried and tested revision strategies over the years and while everyone does learn differently I have some good tips. Hopefully they should help your studies, or when it comes to it revision, go as smoothly and as calmly as possible. Together we can get through any problems you might be having. A little bit about me as a person, I'm originally from Bath and I have a few pastimes I really enjoy. These include Mixed Martial Arts, squash, table tennis, football, oh and I like films too! Any problems at all I'm happy to help! See you soon.

About my sessions

Each session will be tailored specifically to you, the student, to make sure that you can get the most out of the tutoring. I believe one of the greatest problems with teachers today is 'one size fits all' teaching. This is where teachers assume that just because they, or the majority of people, understand something one way that means everyone will. This is just not true and I recognise that. I will work with you to make sure we find a way that helps you to understand...

Each session will be tailored specifically to you, the student, to make sure that you can get the most out of the tutoring. I believe one of the greatest problems with teachers today is 'one size fits all' teaching. This is where teachers assume that just because they, or the majority of people, understand something one way that means everyone will. This is just not true and I recognise that. I will work with you to make sure we find a way that helps you to understand! Therefore my sessions, as well as some of the quirky ways to understand things I've come up with, are unique. Every lesson will have a similar basic structure, starting with going over the key facts and bits of knowledge for the topic we're looking at. To help you properly understand the concepts it's good to be able to view your facts in the wider context of the subject. This will enable you to apply your knowledge to any question an examiner could set you. Getting these questions right is what separates the B grade students from the A/A* students. I will help you with this by providing a multitude of different comparisons and analogies that will hopefully help to make things more clear! If you've been given questions from school that you'd like help with that's great, I am very happy to go over any and all questions you need help with. Hopefully this will all get you to a place where you feel confident in your subjects and ready to take on your exams!
