About me

Hi I'm Nya, a second year biochemist at the University of Edinburgh but originally I'm from Devon. I studied Biology (Edexcel), Chemistry (OCR) and Maths (AQA) at A-Level and received A*, A, A respectively. I tutored other students A-Level and GCSE throughout school. Though I have studied all of Biology and Chemistry, I am particularly interested in Genetics and protein synthesis. I love how intricate the human body is and how something so small can contain such complex systems. I fou...

Hi I'm Nya, a second year biochemist at the University of Edinburgh but originally I'm from Devon. I studied Biology (Edexcel), Chemistry (OCR) and Maths (AQA) at A-Level and received A*, A, A respectively. I tutored other students A-Level and GCSE throughout school. Though I have studied all of Biology and Chemistry, I am particularly interested in Genetics and protein synthesis. I love how intricate the human body is and how something so small can contain such complex systems. I found exams stressful and challenging but with enough past paper practice and revision they are manageable. I applied to university to study biochemistry and was fortunate enough to get 5 offers. My firm choice was Edinburgh with an offer of A*, A, A to go straight into the second year of the course and my insurance was the University of Manchester. I really enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, kayaking and climbing which makes Edinburgh ideal. I also play netball for the biology society. I travel as much as possible; in my gap year I travelled around Southeast Asia for 8 months and will never forget the incredible experiences I had.

About my sessions

First I will get an understanding of what the student wants out of the sessions. It's important for me to know what areas the student needs help with. Then I will find lots of exam questions or make my own with correct structure to first go through showing how the question should be approached and answered then allow them to attempt a question with prompts if needed. I will start each lesson with a recap of the last session and record their confidence/ability to track improvement then mov...

First I will get an understanding of what the student wants out of the sessions. It's important for me to know what areas the student needs help with. Then I will find lots of exam questions or make my own with correct structure to first go through showing how the question should be approached and answered then allow them to attempt a question with prompts if needed. I will start each lesson with a recap of the last session and record their confidence/ability to track improvement then move on the days topic. I will help with content understanding, exam technique and basic Maths. At the end of each topic I will make them take a short test which I will mark and record any areas they still struggle with. I will go over these areas in a new way to try to help them understand it better. I will use a variety of methods to teach - visual, audio, games etc. - but ultimately I will try to tailor the lessons to the individual student.
