About me

I am a 3rd Year Biology Student at the University of Exeter. Science as a whole, is a subject I am hugely fascinated about and I love sharing this enthusiasm with younger students and pupils considering scientific studies for the future. Having spent some of my Gap Year teaching abroad as well as tutoring students 1:1, I have been able to develop my communication and teaching skills, which have vastly improved my capability to convey ideas and concepts in an accessible manner. THE TUTORIALS: Before each allocated session I ensure there is a clear plan of what we intend to cover and outline what specific parts of the syllabus we will focus on. I am really keen that tutorials are guided by you, the student and that we focus on the topics that you find most challenging and hard to access. Understanding basic principles is essential in all Sciences, so I will make sure there is a firm basis of this before we approach more complex topics or tackle exam questions. I am a strong believer that visual aids improve the ability to understand ideas, so I use lots of diagrams and illustrations to teach my students. WHAT NOW? I hope this abstract has helped to give you an insight into the type of tutor I am and what we can achieve together during the tutorials! The most important thing is that the tutorials are enjoyable and you leave feeling more confident about a subject. If you have any questions, please do send me a message or book a Meet the Tutor Session.

About my sessions

I design each tutorial to cater to the specific needs of each student but the framework remains the same between sessions -

INTRODUCTION & OVERVIEW

TOPICS TO COVER

CORE CONCEPTS AND MATERIAL

ILLUSTRATIONS AND DIAGRAMS

MINDMAP CONSTRUCTION

RECAP AND REVIEW

CONCLUSION

PLAN FOR FUTURE LESSON

The titles above provide the framework for my Powerpoint Slides that I use for my lessons. I send the powerpoint to the student after the lesson so they can review what we covered and use the slides for revision.

Progress with each student is measured predominantly through answering exam style questions and ensuring the lessons are interactive and led by you! This way, holes in subject knowledge and uncertainties are exposed and the student develops more confidence answering questions.

Explain how a vaccination prevents infection [3 marks]

The main way in which vaccinations prevent infection is by causing white blood cells to produce antibodies. These antibodies are produced rapidly upon re-infection and kill the pathogens.

Explain why diamond has a very high melting point [4 marks]

Diamond is a giant covalent structure.The covalent bonds are very strong and require a huge amount of thermal energy to break apart. There are also intermolecular forces that keep the diamond structure together.
