About me

Biology has been my favourite subject throughout school, and I'm very much enjoying developing my skills as a biologist at degree level. As someone who loves learning, I was often the student that others would come to for help in lessons, and I hope to further pass on my knowledge and help others learn in my tutor sessions. Knowing you had a positive impact on a student's education is a truly rewarding experience, and I hope to give the support you need to tackle your exams with confi...

Biology has been my favourite subject throughout school, and I'm very much enjoying developing my skills as a biologist at degree level. As someone who loves learning, I was often the student that others would come to for help in lessons, and I hope to further pass on my knowledge and help others learn in my tutor sessions. Knowing you had a positive impact on a student's education is a truly rewarding experience, and I hope to give the support you need to tackle your exams with confidence.

Having been a young leader at a local Rainbow (Girl Guides) group for 4 years, I have plenty of experience with working with younger students and helping them to learn. As well as this, I was a peer mentor at my secondary school, meeting with a younger pupil to aid them with their reading once a week. 

I know from experience that exams can seem like an incredibly daunting task but taking it one step at a time to make sure you fully understand each concept will be the key to your success. It can often feel difficult to begin revision when there are certain topics that you are struggling to understand in the first place, so I aim to provide a friendly face that will help explain everything clearly, allowing you to gain the key understanding that is necessary for you to able to confidently answer exam questions.

About my sessions

The first step in the tutoring sessions will be to discuss your learning so far, and which areas you most want help with. From there we can begin to go through topics bit by bit to make sure everything is clear, and work on some questions that will help you to cement your understanding.

The first step in the tutoring sessions will be to discuss your learning so far, and which areas you most want help with. From there we can begin to go through topics bit by bit to make sure everything is clear, and work on some questions that will help you to cement your understanding. 

I think visual aids are a great way to learn, especially for a subject like biology, so I will often incorporate diagrams into my teaching to make explanations as clear as possible. For me, one of the most frustrating things about school was when a teacher would insist you revise in a certain way, which may not be the most effective method of learning for you. For this reason, my sessions will be completely tailored to you, allowing you to develop your own learning style. Some students may already have a good idea of the methods that work well for them, but if not, I can guide you through various different revision techniques, allowing you to establish a method that you will be able to apply throughout the entirety of your academic career.

Whilst good exam results are likely to be your main goal, I am a firm believer that education should be fun! I try to include as many interesting examples as possible, allowing you to grow curiosity for your subject and expand your knowledge.
