About me

Hello! My name is Aimee and I studied Biological Sciences at university because I love learning about the human body and how it interacts with the environment around us. Since finishing university I have been living in Hong Kong as an English teacher, but now I am back in the UK hoping to start a Master's degree in September in Tropical Biology. I have lots of experience in sitting exams, from my GCSEs through to my degree, and I think I could share some useful revision techniques and lea...

Hello! My name is Aimee and I studied Biological Sciences at university because I love learning about the human body and how it interacts with the environment around us. Since finishing university I have been living in Hong Kong as an English teacher, but now I am back in the UK hoping to start a Master's degree in September in Tropical Biology. I have lots of experience in sitting exams, from my GCSEs through to my degree, and I think I could share some useful revision techniques and learning styles which may help you. I think it is important to make your learning as interactive as possible in order to help you understand the topics and also remember it!

About my sessions

During my Online Lessons I want to learn from the student what topics they do not feel confident with and which they do. This will then allow us to create a timetable together of what topics we will cover over the course of the lessons and an end goal we want to achieve. At the start of every lesson myself and the student will set learning objectives to have achieved by the end of the lesson. At the end of every lesson I want to review what we have learnt and check the student has understood...

During my Online Lessons I want to learn from the student what topics they do not feel confident with and which they do. This will then allow us to create a timetable together of what topics we will cover over the course of the lessons and an end goal we want to achieve. At the start of every lesson myself and the student will set learning objectives to have achieved by the end of the lesson. At the end of every lesson I want to review what we have learnt and check the student has understood the content, the following lesson we can begin with a review of this content and address any further queries.


I think it is important to use a range of materials and techniques when we are learning, from mind maps to diagrams and cue cards. I find it helpful to make diagrams on A3 paper to blue tac around the room, so I can refresh my mind of a topic on a regular basis. I also like to set exam questions regularly and mark them according to the mark scheme, so the student becomes familiar with what is expected in their exams.


I want the lesson to make the student feel confident and motivated. I hope I can do this by being approachable, friendly and creating a fun learning atmosphere for the student to be able to address what they need help with.
