About me

Hi, I'm Dan.

I'm currently in my 2nd year studying Biochemistry at Oxford University. I have a great passion and interest for science that I hope to pass on to each of my students. For me, studying Biochemistry combined all the aspects of maths and science that I loved. I genuinely believe that once you have acquired a basic foundation and understanding to build upon, its possible for any student to achieve the top grades!

Hi, I'm Dan.

I'm currently in my 2nd year studying Biochemistry at Oxford University. I have a great passion and interest for science that I hope to pass on to each of my students. For me, studying Biochemistry combined all the aspects of maths and science that I loved. I genuinely believe that once you have acquired a basic foundation and understanding to build upon, its possible for any student to achieve the top grades!

My main aim when tutoring is to help my students gain confidence in finding the style of learning that works best for them. This not only equips you with the skills to be able to revise efficiently and intelligently, but also helps them to combat areas that they may struggle with more independently.

In terms of experience, I have accumulated over 2 years of experience as a tutor, mainly in sciences and maths, catering to various abilities. This summer, I worked for 2 months as English and Biology teacher in Beijing, China, in order to obtain a TEFL certification. I can also assist with Oxbridge/UCAS applications (Interview preparation, Personal statement, etc.) as I have insight into what makes a candidate's application stand out.

About my sessions

No two students are the same; they learn differently and at different rates. That is why I believe it is so important to plan sessions around what the student feels would work best for them. During a typical session, we will work through a specific area that the student would like to improve on, creating a concise and easy to understand set of notes. Highlighting the key information and developing an understanding of how the information can be applied to exam questions is an important skill t...

No two students are the same; they learn differently and at different rates. That is why I believe it is so important to plan sessions around what the student feels would work best for them. During a typical session, we will work through a specific area that the student would like to improve on, creating a concise and easy to understand set of notes. Highlighting the key information and developing an understanding of how the information can be applied to exam questions is an important skill that I put emphasis on. We can then apply this new knowledge by looking through some example questions. We might start off answering the questions in an open discussion type of way and eventually work up to exam style answering to help you understand exactly what the examiners will be looking for. Get in contact: If you have any queries, send me a message using the “Send a message” form on the right, I typically respond within 24 hrs and can easily arrange a free “Meet the Tutor” session within the same week. I look forward to meeting you!

Daniel is a very experienced tutor. I had Oxbridge interview prep with him and his lessons are very well organised and informative. My Oxford interview was very similar to the mock interviews I had with Daniel, which put me at ease during the interview. I highly recommend Daniel as a tutor.
