About me

I'm a Vet student studying at the Royal Veterinary College in London with a first class honours BSc(hons) in Neuroscience. I absolutely love animals and their physiology so Biology is a real passion of mine. Having achieved an A* at both GCSE and A Level, I believe that I have the knowledge, motivation and enthusiasm for learning that is required to help students achieve to the best of their ability in this area. I also have experience in tutoring students with specific learning difficult...

I'm a Vet student studying at the Royal Veterinary College in London with a first class honours BSc(hons) in Neuroscience. I absolutely love animals and their physiology so Biology is a real passion of mine. Having achieved an A* at both GCSE and A Level, I believe that I have the knowledge, motivation and enthusiasm for learning that is required to help students achieve to the best of their ability in this area. I also have experience in tutoring students with specific learning difficulties (dyslexia etc.) and have found successful methods of helping them engage with and process content including creating visual revision aids as well as using memorisation techniques (such as acronyms) that we've come up with together. Having gained on a place on an extremely competitive course, I would be more than happy to offer help regarding personal statements and university entry and share tips that I've picked up from numerous courses designed to show you how to impress university admissions and stand out as a candidate.

About my sessions

From my experience of GCSEs and A Levels, I'm a big believer in using the exam board specification to guide learning and revision. Therefore, these will form the basic outline of the lesson plans that I create - once you're really comfortable with the content on the spec, there's very little that can come up on an exam that can surprise you! A really key way of consolidating learning and assessing progress is past exam questions. I find the most time effective way of incorporating...

From my experience of GCSEs and A Levels, I'm a big believer in using the exam board specification to guide learning and revision. Therefore, these will form the basic outline of the lesson plans that I create - once you're really comfortable with the content on the spec, there's very little that can come up on an exam that can surprise you! A really key way of consolidating learning and assessing progress is past exam questions. I find the most time effective way of incorporating these into sessions is to get students to complete them during the week and then for me to provide full answers and feedback face to face. This is an excellent way of troubleshooting any problem areas and, in addition to this, if it's a tricky area for the student then having an explanation beyond the couple of words that a mark scheme can offer is extremely helpful. A combination of spec centred, in depth teaching and plenty of exam practice is almost guaranteed to boost your grade!

Harriet is extremely helpful and amazing. She has helped me a lot with my university application. She has given my useful feedback for my personal statement as well as my interviews for vet school. Her tips were very useful and gained me an offer in my dream vet school! Glad that I had found her for help :)

I started my GCSE biology tutorials with Harriet in a panic as I was worried about not finishing the course on time. I have now finished my GCSE being 30 marks over the A* grade boundary. She always makes the tutorials fun and makes sure that we thoroughly cover any topics I struggle with, incorporating going through the specification in detail and reviewing my knowledge by going through past paper questions, both during tutorials and in extra homework if I felt like I needed it. She makes sure that we are covering exactly what I wanted to go over, making the most of our sessions. Although I reached out to Harriet for biology tutorials, she also helped me with any physics or chemistry that I was having trouble with and cleared up any issues. I would definitely recommend Harriet to anyone needing help in any subject she teaches. Although I am not taking biology next year I will miss our tutorials!

Harriet has been supporting my son in AS Level Biology. His confidence and understanding has greatly improved since he started working with her. We'll definitely be continuing with Harriet next year. Her approach is friendly yet professional. She has never let us down responds promptly to messages which is a real bonus. I would highly recommend her.
