About me

Hi there! My name is Rowan and I am a recent Biology graduate from the University of St Andrews, Scotland. I have a very broad background in biology and during my 4th year of University I specialised in ecology, evolution and animal behaviour, and I have been lucky enough to travel the world to participate in several different research projects. My passion for Biology ultimately stems from curiosity as to how the world around us works and I would hope to encourage that same curiosity in my st...

Hi there! My name is Rowan and I am a recent Biology graduate from the University of St Andrews, Scotland. I have a very broad background in biology and during my 4th year of University I specialised in ecology, evolution and animal behaviour, and I have been lucky enough to travel the world to participate in several different research projects. My passion for Biology ultimately stems from curiosity as to how the world around us works and I would hope to encourage that same curiosity in my students!


I have experience tutoring both primary and high school students as well as mentoring first year Biology undergraduates. I am very passionate about science and enjoy any opportunity to pass on some of my knowledge. In my free time I enjoy hiking, playing badminton and tennis and attempting (with limited success) to spot birds. I am a hard-working, approachable and friendly individual and I look forward to potentially meeting you!

About my sessions

My tutorials will be tailored to student’s needs, giving them the opportunity to learn in a way that maximises their potential and to focus any topics that they are finding particularly difficult. Tutorials will generally start with a short catch-up, to go over previous material and assess the students’ base knowledge. Rather than a lecture, my tutorials will incorporate exam-style questions and I will encourage students to ask as many questions as possible. Promoting an inquisitive nature is...

My tutorials will be tailored to student’s needs, giving them the opportunity to learn in a way that maximises their potential and to focus any topics that they are finding particularly difficult. Tutorials will generally start with a short catch-up, to go over previous material and assess the students’ base knowledge. Rather than a lecture, my tutorials will incorporate exam-style questions and I will encourage students to ask as many questions as possible. Promoting an inquisitive nature is useful for all subjects, helps to build confidence and is useful in linking concepts together. There are no stupid questions!


I also aim to develop students’ problem-solving skills and various ways to approach questions. I know how daunting exams can be, so we will also go through different revision strategies and find out which one works best. I will show the students how concepts can be applied in modern research, showing that biology can be exciting and helping students to engage with science.


If you have any questions or anything you would like to discuss then please drop me a message and we can set up a free session to get to know each other and set out a lesson plan.
