I am passionate for the biological field as a whole and am keen to help inspire younger students to gain a similar passion through developing their understanding for the subject.

Hello! My name is Amy and I am currently in my 3rd year of Neuroscience at The University of Edinburgh. Neuroscience is the study of the brain and nervous system, and is a subject that hugely intrigues me and that I thoroughly enjoy studying. I am passionate for the biological field as a whole and am keen to help inspire younger students to gain a similar passion through developing their understanding for the subject.


Alongside my studies I am part of the university shinty club - a sport that I love playing! I also play the clarsach in the university ceilidh band. Through this, time management has become an important skill for me - one that I am able to transpose into tutoring.

I am available to tutor National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher students in biology, as well as National 5 chemistry. I have a huge passion for these two subjects and I am keen to engage students whislt also developing knowledge and understanding with an individualised approach. After studying these subjects first hand, I am extremely familiar with the course content and what preparation is required. I am a dedicated and reliable individual with an enthusiastic personality who is adaptable to different learning styles.


As a strong advocate for studying with a clear plan in mind, I take the same approach to teaching. I establish learning styles early on so that I am able to personalise how I deliver lessons to each student. Personally, I learn best through visual aids including colourful diagrams and mind maps. I then consolidate content by testing myself through flashcards and exam-style questions. I have tested countless studying methods and am able to utilise these in lessons to enhance students learning and understanding.


I have plenty of relevant resources available and the knowledge required in order to aid with exam preparation and building of confidence.
