About me

Hi! My name is Jenna and I study Biomedical sciences at the University of Edinburgh, a degree that allows me to develop my interest in biology and chemistry as well as maths. I am an enthusiastic learner, and am always trying to find new study techniques that work best for me.

Hi! My name is Jenna and I study Biomedical sciences at the University of Edinburgh, a degree that allows me to develop my interest in biology and chemistry as well as maths. I am an enthusiastic learner, and am always trying to find new study techniques that work best for me. During my secondary school exams, I found studying biology overwhelming due to the large volume of content there is to memorize. However, with the use of visual aid and being able to draw the various systems and mechanisms out on whiteboards, I found it easier to understand. In chemistry I found the challenge of exam questions lies with understanding when and which given formulas to use. Exam time is stressful, the main stress of mine stemmed from meeting my university offer, and I am proud that the hard work I put into my studies allowed me to achieve the results I did. I began my exam preparation early, using a variety of study techniques such as mind-mapping, flashcards and creating and talking through diagrams on a whiteboard. By working together with you, I hope to help you understand content as well as help find study techniques that suit you to make sure the knowledge isn’t lost. I am passionate about my studies and I hope to make these tricky subjects enjoyable!

About my sessions

I would begin the session by talking with you to identify the key points that you are unsure about. If it is a content-based question, we will work together using a mixture of oral and visual explanations. I find coloured diagrams to show step-by-step processes very useful. I would also highlight key words that examiners look for in your answers and we would make sure you have understanding of these words. What I found beneficial is to constantly test yourself to be able to find where your pe...

I would begin the session by talking with you to identify the key points that you are unsure about. If it is a content-based question, we will work together using a mixture of oral and visual explanations. I find coloured diagrams to show step-by-step processes very useful. I would also highlight key words that examiners look for in your answers and we would make sure you have understanding of these words. What I found beneficial is to constantly test yourself to be able to find where your personal strengths and weaknesses lie, so the session will be interactive and I will be asking you questions throughout to reinforce your understanding. The aim is not to be afraid to answer any of the questions that will pop up on the exam. To close the session, I would ask if you still have any questions and help you identify ways to help this content stick for the exam, such as the use of flashcards or practice questions that I can look at at a later date. Exam seasons are coming up, and I would love to help you achieve the grades you are capable of and for some of you, meet your university offers!

Excellent teaching; my daughter has greatly benefitted. Thankyou so much. After trying out several chemistry tutors, we finally found the best one in Jenna.

Jenna is an amazing teacher who explains complex and difficult concepts in such a way that they become simple and easy to remember. She is also a genuinely lovely and good-humored person, so she makes Biology all the more enjoyable. She puts in extra effort and time to put together past paper questions and she gives you written feedback outside of lesson time which I have really appreciated because it has been so helpful for me. I have really enjoyed my tutoring sessions so far with Jenna, and have gained so much knowledge from them :)

Jenna is absolutely amazing at tutoring biology! I am an IB1 student who has been struggling with biology for the past year. I started doing lessons with Jenna so I would have some extra help before my mock exams and it immediately helped with my understanding of the different subjects we have gone over. Her teaching style is very helpful and she takes into account your specific requests for lessons so they are effective for meeting your needs. I have only done a few lessons with her but will definitely continue doing so in IB2 as it has already helped me so much.
