About me

My name is Priyanka and I study biochemistry at the University of Exeter. I have a passion for biology and chemistry. At school I was always interested in metabolism and the chemical reactions that took place as well as looking at human biology particularly in the cardiovascular system.

My name is Priyanka and I study biochemistry at the University of Exeter. I have a passion for biology and chemistry. At school I was always interested in metabolism and the chemical reactions that took place as well as looking at human biology particularly in the cardiovascular system. In chemistry I developed a great interest in organic chemistry and transition metal chemistry which I now study at university along with microbiology and cellular biology. I understand the stress and pressure of exam study but I hope to offer my students a well planned out session and provide a space where they feel comfortable to ask questions and get things wrong so that they are able to fully understand topics that they fund difficult. I hope to create a fun learning environment. With my previous experience in tutoring students in school for chemistry I have seen that the best way for a student to learn effectively is to use problem-based learning. I am offering tutoring in chemistry and biology at GCSE and A-level as well as help on writing personal statements.

Outsidemy academic studies I run the American society of Exeter and I play volleyball while regularly going to the gym.

Before I start the session I will ask the student what it is that they want to focus on in our sessions and the particular topics they do not understand. I will at the beginning of the session I will quiz the students on what they have learnt in the previous week, then address any queries. During the session I will focus on recapping certain parts of a topic the student doesn’t understand and then to consolidate the student’s understanding I will ask then post exam questions and go through them. At the end of the session I will direct the student towards certain exam questions to answer and science review articles for extra reading.
