About me

I'm a Biological Sciences student at the University of Exeter, loving my course and uni life as part of the windsurfing and Biology societies, as well as shooting film photography for a hobby.

I'm a Biological Sciences student at the University of Exeter, loving my course and uni life as part of the windsurfing and Biology societies, as well as shooting film photography for a hobby. 

My main interests are cellular biology and genetics, particularly those aspects that have clear applications to the outside world. I was lucky enough to be chosen for a research project at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History, studying microfossils using scanning electron microscopes to build 3D images. I went on to achieve an A at Biology GCSE and then an A* at A Level.

I would describe myself as patient and relaxed, and keen to help others learn in my favourite field. I have a wealth of notes from GCSE/A Level that I would be able to share with students. I used a wide range of revision materials and methods during exams, such as flashcards and posters and would concentrate on these during lessons. However, I would ensure that the student thoroughly understands their course content using diagrams and drawings before helping with revision. 

I’m also interested in Psychology and Geography (A*, A*) I am particularly passionate about Physical Geography and neuroscience aspects of Psychology.

About my sessions

After an initial chat with the student/parent to understand what components of Biology, Geography or Psychology they would like help with, I would structure each lesson around either a topic or a module. For instance, photosynthesis in Biology, or coastlines in Geography. For that lesson we would stick to that topic and I would share notes and revision materials for that specific subject. 

At the end of each lesson I’ll give the student a few practice exam questions. This will not only...

After an initial chat with the student/parent to understand what components of Biology, Geography or Psychology they would like help with, I would structure each lesson around either a topic or a module.

At the end of each lesson I’ll give the student a few practice exam questions. This will not only be a way of measuring progress, but also to ensure the student has thoroughly understood the content. These could either be marked and discussed during the lesson, or I would be happy to mark them for review in the next lesson.

Most importantly, I would take guidance from the student as to which areas they are finding difficult.
