About me

Exams are stressful and the way they are designed doesn’t always allow students to make the most of their talents. A little help goes a long way in these cases. My goal as a tutor is to convey the exam focused study techniques that I’ve developed over years studying Biology, Maths, Chemistry and Geography.

Exams are stressful and the way they are designed doesn’t always allow students to make the most of their talents. A little help goes a long way in these cases. My goal as a tutor is to convey the exam focused study techniques that I’ve developed over years studying Biology, Maths, Chemistry and Geography.

Originally from Dublin, Ireland I am a PhD student researching plants, bacteria and mathematical modeling in the University of Warwick. Studying biology has taken me all over the world, from Mexico to Madagascar and that journey began by sitting the Irish leaving cert (equivalent to A levels) in Biology, Chemistry, Geography, Maths and Physics. From here I studied General Science in Trinity College Dublin with my first two years focusing on Biology, Chemistry, Geology and Maths before specialising in Plant Science. After this I studied for an MSc in Conservation in Kew Gardens which led me to my current post.

My interest in biology goes beyond my work into my day to day life where I learn all I can about the natural world. I don't believe science can be studied in isolation so I go out of my way to understand how chemistry, physics and geology impact our world. Throughout my education I have found that teaching is the best way to elevate my own understanding, seeking out opportunities to tutor at any level ranging from giving masterclasses in mathematics to university students, to teaching the basics of biology to 14-year-olds.

About my sessions

My sessions are tailored for the student and focused on the exam. Before the session I will ask you if there are particular areas you are struggling with or goals you want to achieve. Having identified these I will spent the first half of the session running through the topic highlighting the essentials you will need to know to get the best exam results.

My sessions are tailored for the student and focused on the exam. Before the session I will ask you if there are particular areas you are struggling with or goals you want to achieve. Having identified these I will spent the first half of the session running through the topic highlighting the essentials you will need to know to get the best exam results. The second half of the session will be spent answering exam questions together with me detailing how the marking scheme works and how it can be used to streamline your study, making the most of your time by learning the key words and understanding to bump up your grades.


Finally together we will asses the progress you have made, identify areas which are still causing you trouble and discuss how you can apply exam focused study to tackle these, either with me in another session of in your own study time.
