I am Greek-South African student currently living in Scotland and studying Biology at the University of St Andrews. FUN FACT! Scotland is the 6th country I have lived in! I have also lived in South Africa, Turkey, Kenya, Spain, and Greece.


Having grown up around animals, surrounded by vast biodiversity and incredible national parks, it is no surprise that I fell in love with Biology. Although I am interested in all aspects of Biology, some of my favorite areas are biochemistry, plant biology, and zoology (in particular herpetology).


Along with Biology I also study Chemistry - which helps me further understand some biological concepts - and Sustainable Development - which helps to prepare for the future and what we can be doing in order to have a future.

About my sessions

I am here to help you so before we start, we will discuss what you want to get out your tutoring. At the end of each lesson we will decide on the plan for the next lesson.


During the lessons we can do anything from general revision of the whole course, focus on specific topics or areas that you struggle with, and spend plenty of time doing past papers in order to be fully prepared for your exams!

I am here to help you so before we start, we will discuss what you want to get out your tutoring. At the end of each lesson we will decide on the plan for the next lesson.


During the lessons we can do anything from general revision of the whole course, focus on specific topics or areas that you struggle with, and spend plenty of time doing past papers in order to be fully prepared for your exams! If you have some homework or past papers you have done alone and do not understand, we can go through those too so that you have no doubts.


I will plan our lessons specific to your exam board and specification to make sure you are confident on all the material they can test on. Each lesson I will prepare a PowerPoint of diagrams and key points that we will discuss together and will also upload or give you links to more detailed notes and useful revision sites.


Additionally, I am offering help in writing personal statements which can be very intimidating but don’t worry! During these sessions we will discuss your motivations for what you want to study, what you have done to further your knowledge in that subject, facts or stories you want to share, and general structure of a good personal statement.

Maria is a great tutor who always ensures you understand every detail. Her method of teaching allows you to look back over her in depth notes, as-well as how to apply that knowledge in past paper questions. I would highly recommend her!
