About me

Hi, I'm Sophie and I'm currently in my first year studying Biochemistry at the University of Leeds. One of my favourite things about the sciences is how practical and applicable they are, I've personally found it really helpful when learning baseline concepts and ideas to use examples to help my understanding, and there is a wide variety of examples to chose from! When I'm not studying I love playing the guitar and occasionally bake with my friends, which I've found to be...

Hi, I'm Sophie and I'm currently in my first year studying Biochemistry at the University of Leeds. One of my favourite things about the sciences is how practical and applicable they are, I've personally found it really helpful when learning baseline concepts and ideas to use examples to help my understanding, and there is a wide variety of examples to chose from! When I'm not studying I love playing the guitar and occasionally bake with my friends, which I've found to be a great way to relax and keep calm before exams so that I can apply my studying effectively and perform well. I have previous experience with helping students in a one-to-one format as an academic prefect and biology subject champion at my sixth form, and aim to help students succeed by developing their confidence and recognising their individual goals and learning techniques. I truly believe that learning and studying is unique to each person and so hope to identify the methods which work best for a student through adaptable and personalised tutoring.

About my sessions

Whilst my lessons are adaptable and tailored to fit each student uniquely, I do have some main techniques which I integrate into my tutoring. The first being that I aim to help the student attempt an example exam question in every tutorial, helping them to break it down step-by-step and giving the student the opportunity to develop their exam technique which is as important as their content knowledge. I regularly ask if there are any in-school mocks or tests which the student may have in orde...

Whilst my lessons are adaptable and tailored to fit each student uniquely, I do have some main techniques which I integrate into my tutoring. The first being that I aim to help the student attempt an example exam question in every tutorial, helping them to break it down step-by-step and giving the student the opportunity to develop their exam technique which is as important as their content knowledge. I regularly ask if there are any in-school mocks or tests which the student may have in order to offer a session in which we can go through and identify how to gain more marks during exams. As well as helping with course content, I also offer general advice based on my own experiences, such as my personal revision tips, advice with university applications or how to manage exam stress. The main value of my tutoring style is that I identify how a student learns best, and alter my lesson structure in order to provide the most useful and high quality tutoring I can, so don't hesitate to get in touch and I'll be happy to see what I can do for you!
