Hey! My name is Olivia and I’m a second year Biomedical Science student at the University of Birmingham.


I have a genuine passion for teaching biology and I’m devoted to ensuring every one of my students gets the grade they deserve. I’m friendly and approachable and I’ll do everything I can to help you feel comfortable and engaged in our sessions. I know how difficult biology can seem, so I’m patient and encourage you to ask as many questions as you like. As well as just teaching you biology, it’s important to me that you feel I’m here to support, motivate and encourage you, because I have first-hand experience on how stressful A Levels can be.


I’ve found the key to achieving top grades is effective learning / revision and this method helped me achieve straight A/A*s at GCSE and A Level, including an A* in A Level Biology. I strongly believe that everyone has the potential to highly achieve providing they are taught the right learning technique and strategy.


I sat my A Level exams in 2017 and therefore my knowledge is up to date with the most recent specification (I studied AQA biology).

Understanding how to answer exam questions in the exact way the examiner wants is vital to picking up the maximum marks in the exam. I’ve analysed 10+ years of past papers so that I can equip you with exam tips and let you know what's commonly found on mark schemes. Therefore, within each session we’ll consolidate your knowledge with some example exam questions. I’m always happy to set work (e.g. exam questions) to do outside of our sessions too, if you wish. 


There’s a lot to memorise in biology so when going through whole topics, I’ll tailor the session to your exam board specification. This means you’ll be learning exactly what you need to know for your exams.


In most of my sessions I’ll be using the resources I have created which I sell to students and teachers across the country. As a student of mine you’ll have access to these free of charge.


If you think I could be the right tutor for you, drop me a message and we can arrange a free tutorial.

I have been doing biology sessions with Olivia for 2 months now and I reckon she is the best biology tutor I have ever had! Before doing a session with her, I was not confident in biology and struggled to do it. Now her sessions significantly improved my understanding. Every single lesson she is well prepared and I learn a lot from her, sometimes above the specification knowledge. The main thing I love about her sessions is that she always asks me to explain the concepts that we have covered during the lesson, to make sure I have completely understood it. This has made my revision very effective and helped to manage my time efficiently. Her resources are also amazing, it is the perfect revision tool for me! Not only being an amazing biology tutor but also she is very supportive and being helpful in terms of giving useful advice on universities. Again Olivia is a great biology tutor and I am willing to finish my final year of a-level biology with her. She is the tutor who I want to recommend it to my friends and the students who need desperate help in biology!

Olivia has been a great support to our son during his first year of A Level Biology. Always well prepared for lessons, structured and highly organised. Olivia has provided successful exam technique advice resulting in our son achieving an A grade in his recents mock exams. We will certainly be reaching out to Olivia for tutoring throughout year 2 of A levels.

Olivia is an enthusiastic and passionate tutor and I can’t express how much she has helped me with my exam technique and understanding of important key concepts of biology. In the sessions she gives you strategic ways and tips on how to tackle tricky questions in biology. Would definitely recommend her as a tutor!
