About me

Hi there, I'm Tom, I'm 21 and from Newcastle and I am currently studying Dentistry at University of Leeds. Although I have only been studying this for a short time I am already loving the subject and find it deeply interesting. I finished school with an A* in Biology, A* in Chemistry and a B in Maths and I graduated from Newcastle University this summer with a degree in Biochemistry. I have great experience of taking exams at many levels and I have applied for university twice so I understand that process very well. I enjoy to play sport in my spare time, especially rugby, and also the piano when I have the opportunity. I needed a tutor when I was in 6th form so I know first hand how useful a tutor is and how much they can benefit your grades.

About my sessions

After our first introductory meeting, I will first ask the tutee if there are any areas they would like to focus on and then go and plan the sessions around the needs of the student. By giving the student worksheets and exam style questions to work on during sessions we can see how they do and review their answers, and if necessary, we can work on what information was missed and how to improve the answer to achieve top marks. By keeping track of how well the student performs with the questions, we can see how they are progressing and what we can add to the sessions to encourage learning. Completing exam style questions helped me greatly when I was revising for my A-levels and GCSEs and I believe it will greatly help anyone who wants to bring their grades up.
