About me

I've just graduated from the University of Sheffield, securing a 2:1 in Biochemistry and Genetics. So, I have a lot of experience studying and preparing for exams throughout school and university. Therefore, I can offer my expertise in Biology and Maths, but also the different studying techniques I have developed through my academic career to help you. I chose this field as I've always enjoyed science as it gives a different perspective on the world. Science focuses on understanding h...

I've just graduated from the University of Sheffield, securing a 2:1 in Biochemistry and Genetics. So, I have a lot of experience studying and preparing for exams throughout school and university. Therefore, I can offer my expertise in Biology and Maths, but also the different studying techniques I have developed through my academic career to help you. I chose this field as I've always enjoyed science as it gives a different perspective on the world. Science focuses on understanding how things work and my degree allowed me to look in great deal how everything interacts on a molecular level. Being able to analyse results and generate theories from evidence gathered.

I am hard working, and a highly motivated individual who's starting my teacher training next year, so want to take the opportunity to teach now. I understand exams can be stressful and difficult, but my approach is to break everything down. Building on what you already know and then challenging you to learn more. I have always strived to do well and to succeed, and want the same for you. At university, I wanted to make a difference for the students, so took the role of Academic Officer in my departmental society. In this role, I had the opportunity to help the student experience, providing resources, such as lecture recordings, but also organising revision and guest lectures. I enjoy knowing that I can take you from not understanding something to answering questions on it in an exam.

About my sessions

My tutoring style is adaptive and tailored to you, therefore different for each student. I will have a consultation with you to determine what you are looking for from tutoring, and set specific goals that you want to achieve. With clear goals set, I can structure exactly what each tutoring session will contain and have monthly reviews to track progress and test where your knowledge is at. I will start from what you understand and build from there. I will ask for feedback and try different ap...

My tutoring style is adaptive and tailored to you, therefore different for each student. I will have a consultation with you to determine what you are looking for from tutoring, and set specific goals that you want to achieve. With clear goals set, I can structure exactly what each tutoring session will contain and have monthly reviews to track progress and test where your knowledge is at. I will start from what you understand and build from there. I will ask for feedback and try different approaches, to determine what best works for you. I will adapt to your progress and feedback, responding to what's progressing but also spend more time on the areas that you are struggling with. I particularly enjoy the use of worked examples and diagrams, as I am a very visual learner and feel that it is much easier to understand something when you can draw a diagram to explain it.

I will set weekly homework to complete after each lesson, to ensure that you have an understanding of each topic area. I will also go through any questions you felt were challenging. Alongside this, as we approach exams, I can go through past exam paper questions. Showing how I would answer the questions and best techniques to help you study and prepare. To best encourage your learning, I will use different study techniques, such as revision cards, mind maps and anagrams, all to consolidate your subject knowledge. I want you to be ready, so we'll work together to make that happen.
