About me

I'm Sam, and I study Natural Sciences at Cambridge University. My particular interest within science is pharmacology, which investigates the interaction between chemical drugs and human physiology. Hence, a deep understanding of both Biology and Chemistry is essential to my university course, so I’m equipped to tutor these subjects to a high level.

I'm Sam, and I study Natural Sciences at Cambridge University. My particular interest within science is pharmacology, which investigates the interaction between chemical drugs and human physiology. Hence, a deep understanding of both Biology and Chemistry is essential to my university course, so I’m equipped to tutor these subjects to a high level.


My experience of successfully completing GCSEs, A-levels and university admissions tests/interviews puts me in a position to share my advice with others. Throughout these exams, I felt most confident and relaxed when I had prepared as well as possible, which is something I think is really important in order to perform at your best. For this reason, I enjoy helping students of all abilities to learn science in a way that’s enjoyable and motivating.


I have previous experience of tutoring online and in schools, with all students showing significant improvements and achieving or exceeding their target grades. Enjoyment of the subject is key to success, so lessons are tailored to the needs of the student and I aim to link scientific information to real-life situations.

About my sessions

Sessions will be interactive and stimulating, as well as specific to the aims and current level of the student. Topics to be covered will be agreed between myself and the student prior to each lesson, in order to ensure a smooth start and maximise the available time for learning. A typical session will begin with a discussion of the topic, using diagrams and examples, with a particular focus on areas you find most challenging. Then, to practice applying your knowledge, we will complete exam q...

Sessions will be interactive and stimulating, as well as specific to the aims and current level of the student. Topics to be covered will be agreed between myself and the student prior to each lesson, in order to ensure a smooth start and maximise the available time for learning. A typical session will begin with a discussion of the topic, using diagrams and examples, with a particular focus on areas you find most challenging. Then, to practice applying your knowledge, we will complete exam questions from the relevant exam board and generate model answers using the official mark scheme. Since repetition is essential to learning new content, we will frequently revisit topics in the form of quizzes and practice questions. This approach has been very successful with previous students, who have all shown improved confidence within the subject and met or exceeded their target grades.
