About me

I'm a medical student with a big interest in science as well as in music. I'm really interested in why humans are the way they are, having also studied human evolution, and how doctors can help when things go wrong. I also spend my time at university rock climbing (taking my ape ancestry very seriously) and singing.

I'm a medical student with a big interest in science as well as in music. I'm really interested in why humans are the way they are, having also studied human evolution, and how doctors can help when things go wrong. I also spend my time at university rock climbing (taking my ape ancestry very seriously) and singing. I enjoyed a wide range of subjects at school and always asked a lot of questions in class to try and get to the bottom of what we were learning. I find I remember things a lot better if I understand them and why they're important which is what I hope I can do for you. I also think it's important to identify the ways you personally learn best as well as to use a variety of learning styles to keep you interested. I hope to help you get a little bit more excited about what you're learning and to break difficult things down into smaller chunks to help everything stick in your mind a bit better.

About my sessions

I will tailor my sessions to your needs as a student. I would expect to start by asking you to pick a specific topic that you need help with so that we can try out a particular way of learning and then adapt as necessary. I would always check the knowledge and skills required of you by your exam board in advance of a session and tailor my teaching to that. However, I think it’s important for learning to help you to understand the knowledge, not just memorise it. I will therefore try and help...

I will tailor my sessions to your needs as a student. I would expect to start by asking you to pick a specific topic that you need help with so that we can try out a particular way of learning and then adapt as necessary. I would always check the knowledge and skills required of you by your exam board in advance of a session and tailor my teaching to that. However, I think it’s important for learning to help you to understand the knowledge, not just memorise it. I will therefore try and help you understand why you might be learning it in the first place, if I can, and what it might be useful for. I will aim to have sessions with a mixture of explaining concepts, answering your questions, doing questions together and helping you create useful revision resources. At the end of a session, we can re-evaluate where you are with a topic, work out whether you need further help, and what you might do in the mean time to work towards that goal. Nearer exam time, we might have more focussed sessions tailored to past questions.

Miranda is an excellent tutor. She is super organised as well as patient and kind. She bases her lessons on the 'specification' ensuring that all the necessary and key knowledge is covered. Her explanations are very clear and easy to understand. My daughter tells me that she is already feeling much more confident and knowledgeable for her GCSEs. Highly recommend.
