About me

As I am a third year medical student I understand the struggle of students trying to get used to the specific exam technique required to achieve high grades. I have had experience from GCSE's through to A-levels to develop the skill of identifying where examiners may award marks. I achieved 7A*s and 7As at GCSEs, then 4As at AS and 3A*s at A2.

I have a passion for biology which is why I my course revolves around it but I also enjoy chemsitry, the coursework I was required to do during my a-level this heightened my interest in this subject. I feel that with my knowledge and experience of sitting these exams I will be able to help share my exam techniques and revision techniques and help them get the grades that they want.

About my sessions

I will tailor my sessions to each student depending on their pace of learning and what sort of help they would like, whether it be learning and understanding content or trying to master the exam technique. From what was covered in each session i will make a note of how far we got and be sure to consolidate the key aspects in the next session before moving on.

I will be tailoring my sessions to the needs of the student so I will ask them what they want to do in the session but also give some suggestions as to what we should cover in that session as well. As a student I know how overwhelming this can all be so I will make sure to change my teaching methods to cater for the student.

Massive thanks has to go to Darshana. She helped me with tougher strecth and challenge questions in preparation for my Chemsitry A-Level-helping to make the difficult topics easier to stomach and comprehend. Thanks to her I was able to get an A*, I have got nothing but praise for the work she did.

Darshana definitely goes the extra mile when it comes to teaching. Rather than teaching the bare minimum required, she will stretch and ensure any small errors that need improving are sorted out, making it more comfortable to tackle harder and more complex questions for preparation to the exams.

Darshana very kindly stepped in at the last minute to help my daughter with pre exam concerns/ revision. Darshana knows her subject inside out, her tuition was thorough and clear. She quickly understood my daughters concerns and was able to consolidate her revision so far, work on areas of weakness, and also managed to build up her confidence as well. Job well done. Thank you Darshana

My daughter has been having weekly lessons for the past few months covering biology and chemistry A-Level. My daughter has found Darshana make Learning very easy. She has helped my daughter cement her learning And enjoyed the exam style questions that she poses which key for my daughter to achieve a high grade at her exams later this year due to the specific marking scheme. She thoroughly enjoys the lessons too. We would without question recommend Darshana to any one.
