About me

Hi, I’m Lois! I’m a recent Zoology graduate at the University of Bristol and am now a postgraduate student at the University of Plymouth studying MSc Marine Conservation. I’m very much a water-person – I’m a SCUBA diving instructor, keen freediver and consider myself fortunate to work in the field.

Hi, I’m Lois! I’m a recent Zoology graduate at the University of Bristol and am now a postgraduate student at the University of Plymouth studying MSc Marine Conservation. I’m very much a water-person – I’m a SCUBA diving instructor, keen freediver and consider myself fortunate to work in the field.


Biology is a subject I’m passionate about, and I love teaching and inspiring others. Having achieved top grades throughout my GCSEs and A Levels, I understand the importance of learning exam technique as well as content in reaching high grades and very much enjoy helping others to develop their abilities and do well in exams. Having been through it all myself I’m aware of how daunting GCSEs, A Levels, and applying to universities can be!


My undergraduate degree provided me with a well-rounded and thorough understanding of Biology placing me in a great position to teach others. I have previous experience tutoring GCSE and A Level Biology in schools in Bristol, and as part of a foster family have spent many hours helping my foster siblings with their studies. I’m here to support my students through every stage in achieving their academic goals, in a way personalised to suit each individual.

About my sessions

My lessons always begin with a discussion to learn what the students' goals are and how best they learn. We'll go through the topics together and come up with a plan for the lesson(s).


Generally, my lessons are structured in 3 parts:

My lessons always begin with a discussion to learn what the students' goals are and how best they learn. We'll go through the topics together and come up with a plan for the lesson(s).


Generally, my lessons are structured in 3 parts:


Firstly, we'll review the previous lesson (including any "homework") and outline today's plan.The main lesson will cover areas identified as topics to improve on, and we'll work on exam technique to ensure that knowledge turns into marks! I use a variety of techniques to aid comprehension, including interactive diagrams and key word definitions.Finally, we'll summarise the topics covered and go through a few past exam questions. I'll give the student some advice on areas to look over and will give them some more past paper questions to have a go at (this is "homework" but is optional, students have a lot on their plate already!)


I always aim to deliver my lessons in a fun, interactive way to engage students with the material. I bring my own passion for the subject to each lesson, and give exciting examples to help make the theories stick! Progress is measured as we go, through exam answers and the student's feelings about each topic. I approach every lesson in a positive, encourage manner and hope this leads to students feeling confident in their ability to do well in exams.
