About me

I have tutored for 5 years - through my degree and now as a qualified Biochemist with a First class degree, and so I have 500+ hours of experience to work with. I work specifically on two things. 1. Exam technique - as important, if not more important than the actual content itself. I spend 50% of each lesson on exam technique and mark schemes. 2. I believe getting students to understand concepts from their roots rather than having to memorise large chunks of information, yielding much better results as it protects against blanking during exams, and develops application of knowledge to unknown situations. I have brought C students to A*s in GCSEs and A levels (and can provide references for this), and can do the same with you.

About my sessions

50% of my lesson is spent understanding content from root concepts, and teaching tips and tricks to help absorb the content more productively. I believe getting students to understand concepts from their roots rather than having to memorise large chunks of information, yielding much better results as it protects against blanking during exams. The other 50% is spent on exam questions from the specific exam board on the topic of the lesson, going through model answers, key phrases that come up in every question - especially questions on application of knowledge to unknown situations, and those regarding experimental technique (sciences). Some typical examples of these are answering questions on reliability of experiments, accuracy of results, the need for controls etc. This allows us - tutor and student - to come up with model answers as well as applying our knowledge to new situations.

very helpful, in breaking down content into chunks that is easier to remember for exams and giving me confidence in my answers.
