About me

My name is Laura and I am an incoming masters student at King's College London. I was the Deputy Head Girl at my high school in Surrey and received the science scholarship from the years 2013-2015. Following this, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto with a distinction in Biochemistry, Pharmacology and Spanish. I am pursuing my masters degree in Clinical Pharmacology, as I am deeply interested in improving how patients manage therapies. However, when I attended...

My name is Laura and I am an incoming masters student at King's College London. I was the Deputy Head Girl at my high school in Surrey and received the science scholarship from the years 2013-2015. Following this, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto with a distinction in Biochemistry, Pharmacology and Spanish. I am pursuing my masters degree in Clinical Pharmacology, as I am deeply interested in improving how patients manage therapies. However, when I attended high school, I had thoroughly enjoyed going to my Biology and Chemistry classes. Many students find these subjects particularly overwhelming due to the fact that there is simply too much information to learn all at once. In order to achieve A*s at both IGCSE and A Level Biology, I had come up with a few ways to make what may seem to be a terrifyingly difficult subject much easier to handle. I am a firm believer in repetition being the motherhood of learning, therefore with all my teaching slides I begin with a recap of what was learnt last week. By reinforcing this knowledge frequently, the long biological and chemical processes will all of a sudden become second nature to you! I am very open to adapting my teaching techniques to suit each student as I am aware that every student has a different way of learning. With my strong knowledge of the curriculum (as I had completed it not too long ago) and my passion for the sciences I truly believe that we can get these A*s together!

About my sessions

As I have tutored for 2 years in the past, I have had a lot of time to come up with the most optimal format for my sessions in order to get my students to remember all the information that has been taught. I have created slides using the IGCSE syllabus in order to create content that is specific to the course. At the beginning of each session, we will go through what was previously learnt last week so that by the time it gets to the final exam, certain concepts would have been reviewed multip...

As I have tutored for 2 years in the past, I have had a lot of time to come up with the most optimal format for my sessions in order to get my students to remember all the information that has been taught. I have created slides using the IGCSE syllabus in order to create content that is specific to the course. At the beginning of each session, we will go through what was previously learnt last week so that by the time it gets to the final exam, certain concepts would have been reviewed multiple times. I will be gathering the questions from the exam board as the students will need to become familiar with the style of questions they will be answering. I furthermore think it is important to highlight each students weaknesses, therefore at the beginning of each month I will be asking the student what exactly they would like to focus on. After going through the days material, we will then do a terminology check. The last feature I offer is help with homework. Sometimes students do not excel in their homework simply because they do not understand what is being asked of them. If these questions are sent 24 hours prior the session, I would be more than happy to interpret the questions for my students so that they are able to do well in all their questions. Teaching students HOW to answer a question is just as important as teaching them the content as having all this knowledge is simply useless if it cannot be put down correctly in the exam.
