About me

Hi there :) My name is Martina and I am a PhD student at UCL, having graduated in Biochemistry from Imperial College London.

 

I have been tutoring for over 4 years now and I find it to be a fantastic job - I love the spark in my students' eyes when the concept finally makes sense! I am very enthusiastic about science and keen to pass on this enthusiasm to the next generation.

As my first language is Italian, I am happy to tutor both in Italian and in English depending on your preferences.

 

Sounds good? Get in touch! :)

About my sessions

I believe that the best way to learn is to understand, so my lessons are focussed on helping the students grasp the concepts rather than memorising formulas (although I am happy to slot in some of that too!).


I encourage my students to do practice exercises or draw mind maps in my absence so that we can work on real specific questions when I am with them: coming up with specific questions to ask me is a sign that you've thought about it and you know what you don't u...

I also welcome feedback from my students directly - this is about them succeeding and I want to make sure I am as effective as possible to achieve that!


I have experience tutoring GCSE Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Biology and IB Standard Maths. I am happy to prepare both sessions on practising past papers and revision of topics already covered in class or extensions to what learnt in the classroom. Just tell me what the objective is and we can figure something out! :)
