My name is Megan, and I have completed 3rd year medicine at Queens University Belfast. This year I am undertaking a MSc in Global Health. I am all about preparation and making sure you understand the key concepts that will be the building blocks to your understanding. When it comes to exams, confidence is key; my job is to instil my students with confidence as well a knowledge, so that when it comes to exam day, they remain cool, calm and collected.


I love helping others, and my key role is how to best help you or your child understand and adapt my learning style to there needs.

This year, is my third successive year tutoring and I am experienced in working with a wide range of exam boards and their updated specifications in a range of subject levels, so I am confident I have the skills to help you achieve your dream grade.


When I was studying for exams I found using the specification helpful to ensure you understand each concept listed as this could be a potential exam question!! Using practice exam questions is another useful tool to test your knowledge once you have revised it thoroughly.

About my sessions

I always like to start with a free meeting to discuss with the student areas that they are struggling with, and identify the best strategy forward. Within this introductory 15 minutes I may utilise some Past paper questions to help gauge the level of understanding of the student.


I will structure each session by first going over the content of the topic to ensure all key concepts are understood to the level required for the specification if said subject. This will include u...

I always like to start with a free meeting to discuss with the student areas that they are struggling with, and identify the best strategy forward. Within this introductory 15 minutes I may utilise some Past paper questions to help gauge the level of understanding of the student.


I will structure each session by first going over the content of the topic to ensure all key concepts are understood to the level required for the specification if said subject. This will include uploaded notes on the topic which are exam board specific and prepared in advance of the lesson.


It is so important to allow the student to ask questions throughout the session, if they don't follow or understand anything and then identify areas that need further study.


I find that practice exam questions or even quizzing students on their understanding is a beneficial way for me to understand what they do and don't understand, as well as to help the student identity their own areas of strengths and weaknesses.


In the final 15-25 minutes to each session I upload relevant practise exam questions from past papers to test the students understanding. The questions will be of varying difficulty and question style relevant to the exam board.I will measure progress over a number of sessions by giving practice exam questions to assess their knowledge and by watching their confidence grow as they begin to understand the concept.

Hooray! I passed my GCSEs in Maths and Biology. This was a big deal for me as not having these qualifications I could not apply for Teacher Training even though, I have a Degree in Education. Megan played a big part in this success and supported me throughout the Year in both subjects. I found Maths hard and this time last year began my journey with Megan. We made a plan of how many sessions I could do and then decided which topics to focus on. My confidence was low at that point and one of Megan's many strengths was helping me become more confident in my learning. I could be honest with her and say what I didn't understand, she did not judge me but encouraged me to try again or look at the subject in a different way. As my confidence grew in Maths, throughout the year, we focused on some of the more difficult aspects of Biology. The sessions were always led by my needs but Megan advised me on becoming a more effective learner. We did lots of work on past papers which really helped with the actual exams. I am so grateful for everything Megan contributed to my success and would highly recommend her to help anyone who needs some added support or direction with either Maths and Biology.

Megan has supported me throughout the academic year with Biology and Maths. Megan is both confident and knowledgeable in both of these subjects. She is very astute in her tutoring and her attention to detail has resulted in her knowing my strengths and areas that I need more support. Megan has a kind and supportive personality which makes her approachable to say if you don't understand but she will also congratulate you when a topic has been understood. I have enjoyed my sessions with her and feel they have definitely enabled my grades to improve

Megan has been an excellent tutor, not only in teaching me the right content but also in helping me prepare for the exam, by looking at the techniques needed to get the best grade possible. She has helped me stay calm and helped make sure I don't stress too much about the work. Would definitely recommend Megan as a tutor, even if it's just for help with revision.
