About me

Hi! I'm Saheefa and am happy to help you with your Maths, Chemistry and Biology subjects! I currently am a medical student, so have studied these up to A level standard and have picked up some great revision tips and strategies along the way to help you ace your exams. Exams can be stressful, especially with the added pressure of your university place resting on your grades.

Hi! I'm Saheefa and am happy to help you with your Maths, Chemistry and Biology subjects! I currently am a medical student, so have studied these up to A level standard and have picked up some great revision tips and strategies along the way to help you ace your exams. Exams can be stressful, especially with the added pressure of your university place resting on your grades. But, once you break it down with logic, its just like a game combining 2 parts of sound knowledge, with brilliant exam tehnique. I have a very understanding based approach to my teaching, as I believe once you truly understand a topic, you will automatically remember it. I make sure that my sessions are tailored for each student to focus on the things they struggle with, and together we develop a plan that will help them be the best they can be in their subject!

About my sessions

-First things first- we rank your topics in order of least understood to most understood.

-Then we aim for a topic per session- where we go through it from start to finish focusing on the bits you are most uncertain of with a few exam questions at the end to consolidate understanding.

-I would also ask you look over the topic beforehand- and have a list of questions ready to ask me.

-Once we have covered all the topics you are uncertain of- we can recap the other topics / fo...

-First things first- we rank your topics in order of least understood to most understood.

-Then we aim for a topic per session- where we go through it from start to finish focusing on the bits you are most uncertain of with a few exam questions at the end to consolidate understanding.

-I would also ask you look over the topic beforehand- and have a list of questions ready to ask me.

-Once we have covered all the topics you are uncertain of- we can recap the other topics / focus on exam question types which you really struggle with

-Depending on the students progression, I then ask them to complete papers every week and we discuss questions they don't understand how they have got wrong, even after consulting the mark scheme.

-To measure progression- I ask them throughout the year to complete papers (1 every 2 weeks at the topic stage-increasing to 1 every weeks after relevant content has been covered), or just regular exam questions if they have lots of content left to cover yet in class.

-Through this strategy I aim to ace both understanding AND exam technique.

-Of course- this is a very variable plan, depending on the level of understanding, the desired grade, the point they are at in the course and the student's confidence.
