I am an undergraduate student at the University of Exeter studying Medical Sciences (BSc). I am currently on a placement year in a genetics research facility doing biomedical research, day to day I am either in the lab or in the office reading, planning experiments or analysing data. Science is my passion, studying the complex cellular processes underpinning disease pathology directly benefit patients and has the potential to save lives.


After going through GCSE's, A levels and two years of a degree I have extensive experience when it comes to preparing for exams, it has taken lots of trial and error using many different strategies to revise but as soon as I discovered how I revise the best revision became so much easier, all I had to do was invest time into working through my syllabus covering all the topics. Doing past paper questions was also a huge part of my success and is something I believe all students should do in order to get the best possible results they can.


I have experience tutoring my younger siblings and cousins through their GCSE’s and A-levels so I'm up to date with all the changes to the GCSE system. Identifying the kind of support they needed as well as focusing on the exam syllabus was key to getting the most out of them. Now I have more free time I'd love to use my experience taking exams and knowledge of biology, chemistry and psychology to help more young people going through their exams.

About my sessions

Everyone has their own goals they wish to achieve from the sessions, once we have identified them I’ll do my best to tailor the sessions to suit your needs.

Everyone has their own goals they wish to achieve from the sessions, once we have identified them I’ll do my best to tailor the sessions to suit your needs.


You may need help understanding the subject better, in this case, we’ll work through the syllabus and focus our efforts going over topics you struggle with the most. It’s then important to consolidate your learning by making resources which explain the topic to you in your own words/ visually either during or outside the sessions. Referring to the resource in the future should take you back to the moment when it all clicked and help you remember the concept. As we work through the syllabus I’ll set questions for you to work on outside sessions, I’ll mark these and decide if more time is needed on that topic or to move on.


You may be need help revising for an exam, in this case our sessions will focus on using techniques which work best for you to help you learn syllabus content. I’ll follow up each topic with past paper questions to do in your own time. During the beginning of the next session we'll go through these, helping to familiarise you with the mark scheme. Nearer to exams we will mainly be working through past papers, developing exam technique and identifying areas to work on.


At the end of every session we’ll record your goals to be completed during the week, exam question/ past paper scores will be recorded to monitor progression.
