Who am I?
Hi there! I'm a second year Biological Sciences student at the University of Exeter!
The world of biology is my passion and I hope through our sessions that you will feel equally as passionate about the subject as I am.
I am a frequent education volunteer with the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust, and have been working with them for many years. Teaching children a little bit about wildlife and inspiring them to learn more is incredibly rewarding. I aim to not only help you learn, but to get you inspired!
What happens in the sessions?
Success at A Level and GCSE is all about being able to understand what you have learnt, and being able to explain to others what you understand. I will aim to make sure you can connect ideas and apply your thoughts to key and important questions in the subject syllabus.
I myself like everything to be explained clearly and systematically with oral and visual aids. I tend to use diagrams, such as mind maps, to explain things clearly and crucially connect ideas together.
As already mentioned, being able to explain to others what you understand is itself part of the learning process. I will make use of typical exam questions to make sure you can be confident answering the most difficult questions in an exam environment.
I need help with my personal statement!
Writing that dreaded personal statement is a daunting task, but every university student has done it successfully, and there are 1000s of us! I will systematically guide you through the process of writing your personal statement, making sure to get the key information in there, and within the character limit!
I need help with Biology!
I am a biology nerd through and through. I completely understand that not everybody loves biology straight away! That's ok! I will try my very hardest to make this fantastic subject as interesting as it possibly can be! I have been through GCSE, A Level and almost 2 years of university. I am now a well-oiled machine when it comes to taking biology exams, I will help you with your revision and help you find the best technique for you!
Please do not hestitate to contact me with any questions! Let me know what you're struggling with and your exam board.
I look forward to meeting you!
