About me

Hello! My name’s Nketia, but some call me NK. I’m currently a finalist student studying a Masters in Pharmacy, a degree that I chose because it gave me a practical way of integrating two deeply loved subjects of mine: Biology and Chemistry. Pharmacy has also allowed me to explore and develop my understanding of both disciplines in much greater depth. This has only furthered my appreciation of both disciplines - an appreciation which I seek to share with my students.

Hello! My name’s Nketia, but some call me NK. I’m currently a finalist student studying a Masters in Pharmacy, a degree that I chose because it gave me a practical way of integrating two deeply loved subjects of mine: Biology and Chemistry. Pharmacy has also allowed me to explore and develop my understanding of both disciplines in much greater depth. This has only furthered my appreciation of both disciplines - an appreciation which I seek to share with my students.

Beyond having a love for the sciences, I love to teach as well. Whether it was understanding how to balance equations at GCSE, or figuring out how cellular respiration worked at A-Level, the result was always this profound sense of achievement. It’s that positive sensation in understanding the workings of the sciences that I strive to share with the students that I work with. As an individual, I’m energetic, enthusiastic and friendly; qualities of mine that I’ll always put into my lessons without fail. From regularly assisting members of staff during VI Form in teaching struggling GCSE and A-Level students, to running a volunteering project during university in which undergraduate students engaged primary school students weekly, I’ve shown myself to be responsible, organised and above all, committed.

If you’re looking for a patient and friendly tutor who’s passionate about what he teaches, I’m your guy!

About my sessions

An advantage of being a student and tutor is being able to identify what each tutee needs to achieve their aspirational grades; I tailor-make each lesson so that each student is taught optimally.

In my first year of university, I tutored A-Level Biology to students in the local area. I took advantage of my creativity to deliver lessons. The use of colourful diagrams on a whiteboard resulted in previously thought complex concepts being made easier to understand, moving students from a B...

An advantage of being a student and tutor is being able to identify what each tutee needs to achieve their aspirational grades; I tailor-make each lesson so that each student is taught optimally.

In my first year of university, I tutored A-Level Biology to students in the local area. I took advantage of my creativity to deliver lessons. The use of colourful diagrams on a whiteboard resulted in previously thought complex concepts being made easier to understand, moving students from a B to an A or an A*. On MyTutor, this has translated to me using my graphics tablet to draw fun and simplified diagrams to make the sciences easier to understand.

I also incorporate exam technique: a component of education which becomes more important in the progression from GCSE to A-Level. In some cases, it isn’t a lack of understanding which lowers an individual’s grade, but a need to refine exam technique. With a bank of past paper questions, I’ll integrate exam content so that students not only gain an understanding of the subject but gain the confidence to apply their newly found knowledge to exam situations.

A lot of individuals don’t like the sciences because they’re found to be complex, challenging and in some cases, frustrating. As a tutor, my aim is to help you solve the “Rubix Cube” that the sciences can be so that students can achieve what they aspire to.

My eldest son was tutored by Nketia in biology and chemistry (GCSE). He achieved a fantastic 8 grade in both of these. Thank you Nketia for your great tutoring! We really appreciated your help.

I can't overstate how happy we were with Nketia or recommend him highly enough. With his help my son, who has some LDs, achieved 8s in Biology and Chemistry GCSE. He is smart, diligent, perfectly prepared, and kind, and I don't think you can ask for more than that. Thank you so much Nketia for everything you did!

Before working with Nketia, I hated science and I was getting 3’s and 4’s in all sciences whilst struggling to understand content. One year later, I just received my GCSE results with two 7’s and an 8 (in the sciences) and I will be studying 2 sciences at sixth form. This is all down to Nketia’s kind, friendly, passionate and hard-working nature. Nketia helped me to understand aspects of science that never made sense to me and without him, I would have most likely failed sciences. The weekly one-to-one sessions with Nketia allowed me to focus on my needs - something you can’t do in a classroom, which allowed me to develop my understanding of the subjects. I recommend Nketia to every student looking for top grades in science, no matter what level you are at.

Nketia is genuinely one of the best tutors I've had! I went from a D and C in A level Chemistry and Biology at the end of year 12 and came out with two A grades in those subjects for the real exams, which wouldn't have happened without of the help of him- Thank you so much Nketia!
