About me

Hi Guys! Im a BSc (hons) Biomedical Sciences and MRes Oncology graduate and I am currently researching at the University of Cambridge. The ever-evolving nature of science elicited a passion in me from early secondary school. Science is our past, our present and more importantly our future and I hope to be able to install some of this passion into another student.

Hi Guys! Im a BSc (hons) Biomedical Sciences and MRes Oncology graduate and I am currently researching at the University of Cambridge. The ever-evolving nature of science elicited a passion in me from early secondary school. Science is our past, our present and more importantly our future and I hope to be able to install some of this passion into another student. I love working for MyTutor as seeing students progress, meet and exceed their potential is so gratifying. I’m also an experienced tutor - with over 5 years experience ranging from GCSE to undergraduate level. I, too have benefited from tutoting and having experience from both sides of the field had given me invaluable insight into what makes a tutoring session successful, and how I can adapt teaching techniques to different learning styles. I understand and appreciate that each student is an individual and adapt each of my session to suit each person- leaving me comfortable using different techniques with different students i.e. problem-based learning, visual/auditory learning and using case studies as learning resources and using role reversal teaching. I hope to be able to aid people in the process to reaching their goals, fulfilling their dreams and becoming their best selves.

About my sessions

I initially talk to the student to find out the subject they are studying, the exam board, the exams they are sitting and their target grade. I will find out what learning style works best for the student, if they are unsure of this I will plan mini-sessions using different styles to determine what the student is most comfortable with. Not only will I take into consideration the target grade given by the school, I will also find out the student's personal target grade as this has the most...

I initially talk to the student to find out the subject they are studying, the exam board, the exams they are sitting and their target grade. I will find out what learning style works best for the student, if they are unsure of this I will plan mini-sessions using different styles to determine what the student is most comfortable with. Not only will I take into consideration the target grade given by the school, I will also find out the student's personal target grade as this has the most impact. I will ask the students to write out their long-term goals and break them down into smaller, more achievable goals, which will be worked on within each session. I will use the individual syllabus to refine my teaching, ensuring that the student can to answer multiple choice questions and short and long answer questions - with key focus on using trigger words and definitions that can take answers to the next level. Progress will be measured via mock tests/ exam board past papers and mark schemes, but also by questions that the student has written themselves. I believe that role reversal is a very effective technique in aiding learning. The student picks a certain topic to become 'the expert' and teaches it back to me. This method requires deep understanding - not just memory recall and thoroughly embeds the information.
