About me

Hi, my name is Jack, and I'm a second year undergraduate Biochemist at the University of York with a strong academic record including over 90% in university chemistry. I have a passion for all things science, and one of my favourite things to do is to pass this on! I'm always the one at the dinner table who ends up going on and on when really, no one wants to know!

I have recently completed A-levels in Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology, in which I achieved 3 A grades - with 100...

Hi, my name is Jack, and I'm a second year undergraduate Biochemist at the University of York with a strong academic record including over 90% in university chemistry. I have a passion for all things science, and one of my favourite things to do is to pass this on! I'm always the one at the dinner table who ends up going on and on when really, no one wants to know!

I have recently completed A-levels in Mathematics, Chemistry and Biology, in which I achieved 3 A grades - with 100% in one Maths module and over 90% in 3 other Maths modules. As a Biochemistry student, I love to connect the molecular nature of the world with our life - and I have a keen interest in disease, and its molecular mechanisms. I also have an AS in Music, along with a grade 8 distinction in both Piano and Keyboard.

I believe that I make my tutoring sessions relatable, fun and engaging, and should the student wish for me to do so, I can go beyond the specification with more detailed explanations to supplement their interest. I am also well aware of the syllabus' and exam styles. I am a volunteer tutor for GCSE maths students in a school, and I also have experience of assisting in a classroom environment.

About my sessions

All of my sessions will be delivered online, where I will explain a concept with the student, and where appropriate using items such as molecular model kits to explain concepts. I will also annotate or create notes whilst I explain my process. Throughout the whole session, I encourage students to ask questions, and I will ensure to ask the students engaging and thought provoking questions to ensure that they understand the material.

All of my sessions will be delivered online, where I will explain a concept with the student, and where appropriate using items such as molecular model kits to explain concepts. I will also annotate or create notes whilst I explain my process. Throughout the whole session, I encourage students to ask questions, and I will ensure to ask the students engaging and thought provoking questions to ensure that they understand the material. At the end of the session, I will often go through an exam style question, whether that is something that I provide, or a specific question that the student may be struggling with.

Further to this, I will allow the student to largely determine the format of the sessions. For example, a student may wish for me to teach a concept for the whole session, or may wish to use the time to work through exam questions that they may be struggling with.
