I am a fourth year medical student at the University of Bristol. I am friendly and approachable, interested in the way in which the body functions, with a particular interest in immunology. My enthusiasm for science stems from having a brilliant biology teacher at school and I would like to encourage other students to enjoy learning. I have over 4 years of tutoring experience, both online and in person. From this, I have learnt that listening to the student is key to helping them develop their science skills in order to gain the grade they'd like!


This year all my GCSE students achieved at least 2 grades above what they were on before they started tutoring with me. 


As I have recently left school I am familiar with the biology and chemistry syllabuses. I am interested in helping students get the grades they need to progress in their area of study, by improving their exam technique so they may achieve excellent results. I'll keep the sessions as fun and interesting as possible!


I received 3 offers to study medicine in my last year at school and was successful in securing my top choice university by achieving my desired A-level grades and successfully sitting both the BMAT and UKCAT exams. Therefore, I am also able to give advice on medical school preparation and help with personal statements.

About my sessions

I ensure that I fully understand any material that the student would like to cover before the session so that I am able to provide the best learning experience possible. I believe that listening to the student is key to them learning, therefore I will tailor every tutorial to the student.

In the past, I have not found a tutor who simply dictates knowledge to their students to be a very helpful teacher. Therefore, instead I use a range of different learning techniques including quizzes,...

I ensure that I fully understand any material that the student would like to cover before the session so that I am able to provide the best learning experience possible. I believe that listening to the student is key to them learning, therefore I will tailor every tutorial to the student.

In the past, I have not found a tutor who simply dictates knowledge to their students to be a very helpful teacher. Therefore, instead I use a range of different learning techniques including quizzes, flashcards and diagrams to keep the sessions interesting and help the student to understand how they learn best. Building on this, I will help the student to develop better revision techniques so that they can continue to learn outside of the tutorial sessions.

I make sure that the student understands the basics of each subject that they are struggling with before progressing to more challenging areas of the topic. This will allow the students to interpret and correctly answer exam questions, which will help them to achieve excellent results.

I set tests for the student to do outside of each tutorial so that I can measure how much the student is improving and which areas need more work. Moreover, each session will involve past paper questions to help cement knowledge learnt in the sessions.

Sophie has been an incredible tutor over the past few months. She has helped me immensely with BMAT preparation and given me invaluable advice to improve my personal statement. I was very nervous about my Medicine interviews but preparing with Sophie has helped me gain confidence and knowledge for my interviews. Asking for Sophie's help was one of the best decisions I made and with her help I've managed to get offers from all the medical schools I applied to. Her teaching style is so unique which helped me understand the hardest concepts and her approachable nature made the lessons very easy to interact in. Thank you so much for all your help!

If only Sophie taught every subject! I cannot recommend her enough. Her commitment to providing a unique and thorough session to help my daughter understand the subject more is second to none. Sophie is attentive, empathetic and adaptable, which are qualities that are hard to find. Both my daughter and I are extremely happy to have found Sophie. Thank you doesn't seem enough.

Sophie is an absolutely brilliant / fantastic tutor / person. Our daughter was very apprehensive about her upcoming Medicine Interview but after her session with Sophie she is full of confidence and had so much praise for Sophie. Sophie has helped both our daughters during their admissions to Medical school and she has been amazing and supportive on top of that she's a brilliant at people management skills. Thanks a lot Sophie.

I asked for Sophie's help with getting my son through his IGCSE biology following a poor performance in his mocks, and it was one of the best decisions I made. Sophie was excellent and I am happy to report my son passed Biology, improving by 2 grades! Can't recommend Sophie enough, she is methodical and patient and will let you know of any concerns she may have with your child's progress which I found invaluable. Thanks again, Sophie!!
