About me

Hi, I'm Lara, a third year Chemistry undergrad at Oxford uni.

I've always loved Chemistry and Maths, and really enjoy helping other students develop a better understanding of these subjects. I've had previous experience through peer mentoring during college, and I am also an assistant sports coach. The coming academic year will be my third working with MyTutor.

Hi, I'm Lara, a third year Chemistry undergrad at Oxford uni.

I've always loved Chemistry and Maths, and really enjoy helping other students develop a better understanding of these subjects. I've had previous experience through peer mentoring during college, and I am also an assistant sports coach. The coming academic year will be my third working with MyTutor.

My favourite part about peer tuition is when a student has a breakthrough and the subject clicks for them. I'm hoping that my enthusiasm for the topics will make tutorials interesting, as I always found that my most engaging teachers were the ones who were passionate about what they teach.

I've been tutoring now for two years and have a proven track record of developing student's confidence in their work and attaining/increasing their desired final grade.

I took Pre U Maths, Further Maths and Chemistry, so have experience with this less well known qualification, as well as with the standard A Level as well.

I can also offer advice for university admissions, how to make a successful Oxbridge application, taking the Oxford TSA, and generally selecting and applying to universities.

Please note I only tutor the TSA in the section A multiple choice paper.

About my sessions

I like to have a full understanding of the content a student needs to know before I carry out a session. I will always revise through a student's syllabus before tutorials.

I am a firm believer that the best way to learn is to talk a topic through with someone else. By having a discussion, you can really establish exactly where your weaknesses and strengths are, and personally I find it much easier to remember information that someone has explained to me, as opposed to reading it fr...

I like to have a full understanding of the content a student needs to know before I carry out a session. I will always revise through a student's syllabus before tutorials.

I am a firm believer that the best way to learn is to talk a topic through with someone else. By having a discussion, you can really establish exactly where your weaknesses and strengths are, and personally I find it much easier to remember information that someone has explained to me, as opposed to reading it from a textbook.

I also find diagrams very helpful as part of explanations. Everyone learns in different ways, and visual representation is often very effective. I also use short video's occasionally in lessons, such as demonstrating chemistry practicals, to reinforce that learning.

I am happy to run tutorials that are mainly prepared by myself before hand, or to just work on whichever topic the student wishes to on the day - it is up to you! I have lots of helpful GCSE and A Level resources to use for lessons, as well as access to many different past paper questions to use as practice.

The sessions are 55 minutes long. I am very flexible with times, happy to book the lessons on a week by week basis as I appreciate schedules can change! Last minute bookings are fine permitted I am not already booked up for that day already.
