About me

I recently graduated with a BA Hons Class I in Biological Sciences from Oxford University. I love conservation, ecology and evolution, but I also achieved a First in my Part I Honours in subjects built on all areas of GCSE and A-Level material. I'm passionate about making Biology as accessible and interesting as possible to all students. I also have my love of English Language and Literature which I took to A-Level (A*) - creatively and critically analysing texts and language is fun and r...

I recently graduated with a BA Hons Class I in Biological Sciences from Oxford University. I love conservation, ecology and evolution, but I also achieved a First in my Part I Honours in subjects built on all areas of GCSE and A-Level material. I'm passionate about making Biology as accessible and interesting as possible to all students. I also have my love of English Language and Literature which I took to A-Level (A*) - creatively and critically analysing texts and language is fun and rewarding! It helped me a lot in my Biology degree, so I aim to provide students with a firm grounding in these skills for whatever future path they choose.


I am patient and friendly and will approach all tutoring sessions with enthusiasm, understanding that each student has unique strengths and areas for development - I enjoy adjusting my teaching style to suit a student’s particular needs and objectives. I also understand that taking exams happens in the wider context of students’ lives. Having experience of studying for and taking exams (and succeeding!) in less than ideal conditions, I can vouch for the value of developing effective and efficient learning and revision strategies for each student. 


I’m also happy to offer support and advice for students applying to university to study biology, particularly for students interested in conservation and ecology.

I know that learning and revising for exams can be tough. As your tutor, I aim to provide motivation and support and give you the skills to ace your exams!


The framework for our sessions will be defined by your needs and objectives. These could be revision or understanding of key topics, exam technique strategies, or a mixture. If you’re not sure what learning styles work best for you, I can help you find the right ones, which will increase your confidence and your grades! And if you’re preparing for exams, I will work using your syllabus and exam specification to ensure the content we cover is exactly what the examiners are looking for.


Sessions will differ a little depending on whether the focus is on revision, understanding or exam technique, but they will always be based on clear learning objectives, so you know what we are doing and why. We will work through topics using your preferred learning styles to increase understanding, using a traffic light system to identify key areas you find tricky and track progress. I will also provide exam-style questions to practice applying your knowledge; mastering exam technique is key to improving exam performance! I encourage my students to ask questions and am happy to discuss topics in more depth if you find them particularly difficult or interesting, and homework for completion between sessions will consolidate your knowledge and skills.

My son has had one session with Miriam and already I can see the progress he has made. He has been floundering at school in his descriptive writing but she has helped boost his confidence and provide a clear framework for him to use. She has a lovely calm teaching manner about her. My son has already warmed to her lessons. We look forward to many more.

Miriam is a really experienced tutor for helping course work and literature studies. My daughter developed a lot of techniques for writing in GCSE literature, and she was recently being predicted a grade of 7/8 in English GCSE (English is my daughter's second language)
