About me

I am passionate about my studies and living and learning in such a vibrant and international community.

Hi there! My name is Clara, I study Psychology at the University of Edinburgh and I would love to tutor you in Biology and/ or German. I am passionate about my studies and living and learning in such a vibrant and international community. Being German, I enjoy learning about the British culture alongside my studies and meeting people from all over the world – an experience that is not entirely new to me as I went to an international boarding school in the south of Germany for the last three years of my school career (after going to a Scottish boarding school for half a year to improve my English) where I graduated with a bilingual IB Diploma.

I would love to use the skills I gained through the past couple of years to help you achieve your personal goals and actually understand the material – which is key for achieving the grades you strive for!

When teaching refugees German for two years, I learned a lot about my own native language, in particular what the difficulties are people face when studying German. I found seeing how “my students” improved over time as encouraging and satisfying as studying Biology with my classmates and explaining processes and concepts to friends that asked me to. Biology is a subject that I have always been passionate about and that is related to Psychology, as such I am still very much in touch with it.

About my sessions

There are different types of learners preferring different ways of illustrating and explaining a topic. I have found that a combination of auditory and visual information alongside communication about the topic works best for me and I would take this as a starting point until we developed what works best for you.

As such I will make use of drawings, diagrams and tables when explaining a question. After you feel more comfortable with the topic, I might ask you to explain me something in...

There are different types of learners preferring different ways of illustrating and explaining a topic. I have found that a combination of auditory and visual information alongside communication about the topic works best for me and I would take this as a starting point until we developed what works best for you.

As such I will make use of drawings, diagrams and tables when explaining a question. After you feel more comfortable with the topic, I might ask you to explain me something in your own words – this will help you to understand and build up your confidence on the topic as well as highlighting what we need to focus on in the next tutorial!

Since it is helpful (as boring as it might seem sometimes, even to me) to actually produce written summaries and to engage with a topic repeatedly I might get you to do a little homework for the next tutorial.

To achieve academic success and to enjoy learning, I have found it important to reduce the amount of stress felt and to become good at time management – skills that I am more than happy to pass on to you!
