About me

Hello, I am currently a undergraduate studying biochemistry at the University of Edinburgh. Having always been interested in science, my interest for biochemistry sparked when I realise life in all its complex forms are all made of a handful of simple elements. My desire to understand how such a phenomenon can occur led me to where I am today Having been taught by some of the most fantastic teachers, I hope to use their style of teaching of not just learning the subject but instead understand...

Hello, I am currently a undergraduate studying biochemistry at the University of Edinburgh. Having always been interested in science, my interest for biochemistry sparked when I realise life in all its complex forms are all made of a handful of simple elements. My desire to understand how such a phenomenon can occur led me to where I am today Having been taught by some of the most fantastic teachers, I hope to use their style of teaching of not just learning the subject but instead understand the fundamentals to help my students. My teachers not only taught me well, they also helped me to bring out my passion for biochemistry which led to me enjoy my subject further and doing better in exams. I hope to do the same with my students, help to learn and enjoy the subjects at the same time. For me personally, exams were never enjoyable but what made it a lot easier were my teachers and tutors. I now wish to do the same with anyone I tutor. Help them to get excellent grades and to find out what they are passionate about to carry on to further education

About my sessions

For biology and Chemistry, I would spend majority of the session explaing a concept and mechanism and the last 10 minutes or so recapping with some questions. I will then give some optional homework. If they do not struggle, it shows the students have a relatively good grasp on the concept and I can move on to the next one. If they do then I could answer their questions in the next session. With Maths, I will spend less time explaining a topic and more time working through questions with them...

Tutorials with Jay have been super helpful for me so far! Every lesson starts off with a detailed explanation of the topic that I'm struggling with, covering every single point of the syllabus (which has really deepened my understanding and ability to answer complex "suggest" questions in the past papers). We then practice many exam questions, of varying difficulty, to consolidate the knowledge. Also, I sometimes ask questions that are beyond "what we need to know for the exam" material, but Jay always finds the answer! After 3 month of tutorials with Jay, my grade in chemistry rose from 74% to 95%! I will definitely be continuing the lessons for the final A2 revision period and would recommend Jay to anyone who is looking to boost their grades in a friendly environment and at a good pace!

The classes with Jay take something as mundane as calculating an equilibrium and make it absolutely fascinating. Chemistry can often be taught with someone saying just learn it like that it's just how it is, making the subject quite hard. However, the sessions have been able to explain all tiny theories behind everything, making me really understand instead of just memorise.

Really good session with Jay. He covered everything comprehensively and made sure I understood each step of the way despite technical issues with my internet connection. We also covered a multitude of practice questions to ensure that I had fully understood everything he had said.
