Hello! My name is Alejandro. I did IGCSE and IB before university, achieving 43 points, with a 7 in both HL biology and HL chemistry. Currently, I am a second year student at Edinburgh University. I study Medical Sciences and, in my opinion, it's absolutely incredible. As such, I am more than excited to share my knowledge and passion about Biology and Chemistry through my tutoring to you. This grades where achieved not through tedious study; they were fueled by an inherent curiosity and interest towards the content.


A lot of the time, the biggest source of struggle for a student is the lack of engagement from a teacher, or improper communication of concepts. I am a strong believer that anything can be taught to anyone with sufficient knowledge, interest, and passion. As such, I am more than ready to provide you with the confidence to tackle the academic challenges and obstacles that might occur in your studies.


In regards to my experiences and personal interests, I've already had substantial experience with helping individuals academically - during high school, I provided support to my peers and was given the award of "Most supportive individual" alongside the "Academic excellence" prize. At university, I am part of BioPALS, the official Biology peer-support group, and I am in charge of the of our sessions. Finally, I am also the events organizer for Edinburgh University Swing Dance Society!

About my sessions

My main ideology in terms of tutoring is to have a strong student-tutor relation. I am more than fine to answer any and all questions, and if anything is not working for you I am more than willing to try other methods of studying. I truly believe there are no wrong questions: everybody learns differently and holds different knowledge, and that is completely fine. I will also make sure that I have a complete understanding of the area you want to revise and study, while also creating a range of...

My main ideology in terms of tutoring is to have a strong student-tutor relation. I am more than fine to answer any and all questions, and if anything is not working for you I am more than willing to try other methods of studying. I truly believe there are no wrong questions: everybody learns differently and holds different knowledge, and that is completely fine. I will also make sure that I have a complete understanding of the area you want to revise and study, while also creating a range of activities and questions to consolidate the learning.


During the introductory meeting, I would want to discuss what you want from my tutoring, and depending upon your needs I will adapt my tutoring style . It could range from a focus on lecturing (always allowing for questions, of course), to consolidating things you have done in your classes and explaining doubts you have, to doing questions and tackling the points of weakness.


In terms of how I will structure and approach the lessons, I believe using the IB syllabus is fantastic at establishing what areas should be consolidated. It provides a really clear and concise flow of information to follow, while serving as a way to track your content and knowledge. I enjoy using diagrams and visual aid to support the content of the session, At the end of the lesson, a quick summary and recap would be done!
