About me

Hi! I'm a first year biology student at the University of Bath, developing my Japanese and learning Chinese on the side. I've tutored friends in my subjects much over the years and have taught study skills, early secondary science and Japanese as a part of volunteer work, so I hope to put that experience to good use!

My field of study is one which I believe to be endlessly rewarding; the more you learn the greater the mystery, the complexity and the fun! I understand most second...

Hi! I'm a first year biology student at the University of Bath, developing my Japanese and learning Chinese on the side. I've tutored friends in my subjects much over the years and have taught study skills, early secondary science and Japanese as a part of volunteer work, so I hope to put that experience to good use!

My field of study is one which I believe to be endlessly rewarding; the more you learn the greater the mystery, the complexity and the fun! I understand most secondary students don't feel that way about biology, bored by plant facts and the (occasional to absolute) dreariness of the GCSE curriculum. That's why with anything I teach, while my immediate aim is to help my students stay afloat in their work, my more fundamental goal is to allow them to really understand their subject and tap into the addictive feeling of having mastery over it. If we are lucky, I hope to help them find a love for their subject by helping them discover where it can lead and how it can help themselves and other people! (This includes all of my tutoring subjects including Chemistry, Geography and Japanese!)

I hope to be of help!

About my sessions

I intend to use our first lesson to understand what the student (or their parents/teachers) wants out of our time, to evaluate where the student is in ability and gauge the feasibility of our goals appropriately. Before following lessons I will write up lesson plans to give structure to our learning though this will come secondary to the immediate needs of the student about particular concepts recently learned that require consolidation, or that are flagged up as areas of weakness before goin...

I intend to use our first lesson to understand what the student (or their parents/teachers) wants out of our time, to evaluate where the student is in ability and gauge the feasibility of our goals appropriately. Before following lessons I will write up lesson plans to give structure to our learning though this will come secondary to the immediate needs of the student about particular concepts recently learned that require consolidation, or that are flagged up as areas of weakness before going into revision season. 

Should study skills and organisation be areas of weakness, I will leave time aside to tackle them while bearing in mind different students study and succeed differently and offering advise in that vein. This goes for my general teaching as well: students may be visual, auditory or kinesthetic learners to different extents, and attempting to fit a square peg into a round hole is nothing but unproductive! (Though exams are hoops I intend to help you fly through regardless...)

As such, I intend to cater my teaching to the student (the joy of a 1 to 1 tutoring relationship), aiming to work in diagrams and verbal explanation while reinforcing that knowledge by active learning on the student's part, getting them to explain concepts back to me and answer written and verbal questions with confidence. The end goal should be that the student is so confident as to be able to teach the subject to their peers. 

I hope we make it so!
