About me

I’m currently in my third year at Durham University studying Natural Sciences. I am passionate about Natural Sciences because it presents not only an academic challenge but also the chance to study in more detail science’s effects in the real world. I have a strong academic background with an A* in Maths and Geography and an A in Biology and Chemistry at A-level.

I’m currently in my third year at Durham University studying Natural Sciences. I am passionate about Natural Sciences because it presents not only an academic challenge but also the chance to study in more detail science’s effects in the real world. I have a strong academic background with an A* in Maths and Geography and an A in Biology and Chemistry at A-level.

I am good at making complicated fields of study clearer and more approachable (and therefore more enjoyable!) to learn. Having only recently come out of the A-level exam system myself, I understand how the content can feel overwhelming sometimes, and I am confident I can help you feel less panicked by that and more prepared overall. 

I have had experience tutoring students Maths in secondary school, as well as being a classroom assistant for 8-9-year-olds. This means I’m happy adapting my teaching techniques to a variety of ages and am equally comfortable working on the 11+ as I am on an A-level syllabus, and all levels in between. I am organised, hardworking and friendly - I hope to hear from you soon!

About my sessions

My tutorials will be built around past paper questions that I will collect beforehand, thus ensuring we can be specific to exam boards and cover the current curriculum specifics. I will make sure I match the questions to the student’s ability to help consolidate their learning, as well as using more challenging questions to help stretch their knowledge and achieve higher goals. I will provide summary points at the end of each tutorial and will go through these points with the student, to ensu...

My tutorials will be built around past paper questions that I will collect beforehand, thus ensuring we can be specific to exam boards and cover the current curriculum specifics. I will make sure I match the questions to the student’s ability to help consolidate their learning, as well as using more challenging questions to help stretch their knowledge and achieve higher goals. I will provide summary points at the end of each tutorial and will go through these points with the student, to ensure that they understand the important elements of the topic and to measure their progress. 

Positivity and acknowledging a student’s potential are two key factors in motivating a student and encouraging them to want to learn. I believe this is a major factor to help a student achieve their goals and make more ambitious ones. By combining a positive attitude and a relaxed environment, with questions that consistently set the bar high, these tutorials will improve knowledge and confidence in anyone who learns with me!
