Hi, I'm Emma and I would love to be your tutor. I have over 100 hours of experience tutoring through my tutor as well as previously running a science club at a school and working with students to help them pass their senior school entrance exams. I graduated from Southampton University in 2017 with a degree in Biomedical sciences and I have just completed first year of post-graduate medicine at Nottingham University. I therefore have a real passion for and a thorough understanding of many different topics within biology, physiology, biochemistry and pharmacology. Everything I have learnt since I left school has built on the GCSE and A-level syllabuses. This means I can teach the core science with factual accuracy whilst adding in extra details to keep it interesting and relevant for my students. I can well remember how I felt while I was revising for my GCSEs and A levels and, over the years, I have come up with lots of different strategies to make both the revision and the exam as painless as possible! Outside of academics I am a keen sports player, am captain of the university ski racing team and I play netball, tennis and horse ride.

About my sessions

Before our first tutorial I will look at your syllabus and learning objectives for the subject or topic that you would like help with. I will then use the ‘traffic-light system’ of red, orange and green to establish your level of understanding and highlight the key areas of focus. At the start of every tutorial I will set out learning goals either built around your specific questions or around the syllabus. I will then use a combination of pre-made diagrams from textbooks and writing and draw...

Before our first tutorial I will look at your syllabus and learning objectives for the subject or topic that you would like help with. I will then use the ‘traffic-light system’ of red, orange and green to establish your level of understanding and highlight the key areas of focus. At the start of every tutorial I will set out learning goals either built around your specific questions or around the syllabus. I will then use a combination of pre-made diagrams from textbooks and writing and drawing on the live whiteboard to explain the topic. Once you feel confident with the concepts I will give you loads of practice at answering past-paper questions on that topic going over the mark scheme with you every time. Using this technique, you will not only establish a really strong understanding of the topics but I will also make sure that I perfect your exam technique so that you become an expert at answering the exam questions correctly and concisely every time!

Emma has strong subject knowledge and excellent interpersonal skills. She tutored my son mainly in Chemistry leading up to his GCSE Science exams, which clearly helped him get a more comprehensive understanding of the subject. I can fully recommend Emma as a tutor.

My daughter has just received her A level Biology result and is thrilled to have the grade she needed for her university place. She began weekly tutorials with Emma because she wasn't coping with the pace of the A level course and wasn't on track to get the grade she needed. Emma's patience, clear explanations, planned sessions and past paper practice undoubtedly helped my daughter get the grade she needed in the end. Thank you Emma!
