Hello!


My name is Lily and I am currently a third year undergraduate on placement at the University of Oxford, studying Pharmacology (basically all about the science behind drugs). I study pharmacology as I have a genuine passion for science, particularly biochemistry and the ways that chemical molecules can interact with biological systems. I believe that my love of these subjects has been instilled from a young age by the teachers that taught me, so I would hope to emulate them and inspire other students to feel the same way. At the time of completing my GCSE and A-level examinations I was competing nationally in swimming competitions and working towards piano exams, so I thoroughly understand the difficulties that students might face whilst trying to juggle their commitments. As a result of this, I appreciate why students may need additional tutoring in order to aid their understanding of a subject area and am more than happy to assist with prioritising work and formulating effective revision techniques.

About my sessions

My tutorials are centered around the unique needs of each tutee. I will devote the majority of the session to areas of the subject that the individual struggles with, and then present the information in a more accessible way, using analogies and visual examples.

My tutorials are centered around the unique needs of each tutee. I will devote the majority of the session to areas of the subject that the individual struggles with, and then present the information in a more accessible way, using analogies and visual examples. I believe that preparation is key, so I would ask my tutee the areas that they would like to reinforce, and then prepare my resources and create a flexible plan based around their concerns. I may also ask my tutees to do some of their own preparation in between sessions in order to maximise their learning, with resources provided by myself. I will emphasise the importance of exam technique and adjust this to different levels of examination and exam boards, and work with the student to ensure they only learn what is necessary - nothing 'extra' to complicate things!

We've been using Lilly to tutor our daughter towards her final A-Level Biology exam. Our daughter can be a very anxious girl and it was important that we found someone that she could connect, trust and enjoy being tutored by and we found that person in Lilly. Ourselves and our daughter have seen a huge improvement in her confidence in not just Biology which was the subject Lilly was tutoring but in her academic life as a whole. It's just a massive shame she won't get to test how much her grades had improved due to the exams now being cancelled but I'd like to thank Lilly for everything she's done.

Lily was extremely helpful in reading through and giving advice to my son on his UCAS personal statement. Would definitely recommend.

Lilly is tutoring our son through his final A Level year in biology and has been a tremendous help. She is very reliable and professional and I have no hesitation in recommending her.
