About me

Hello!

My name is Max, and I'm currently studying biochemistry at the University of St Andrews. I like my course because it combines two subjects that I find extremely interesting, and takes a unique approach to the study of molecular life. I also really enjoy learning languages, sports, and current affairs.

About my sessions

To me, learning a subject is not just about ticking off boxes to pass an exam. I find it is much more beneficial to the student if they really understand why something is the way it is, and not just stop at the first answer they get. In many subjects, themes and ideas link across topics, and if you dive deep into the mechanisms of an idea, you will be able to apply these themes and ideas to other answers as well.

I will structure my tutorials to cater specifically to each student's...

To me, learning a subject is not just about ticking off boxes to pass an exam. I find it is much more beneficial to the student if they really understand why something is the way it is, and not just stop at the first answer they get. In many subjects, themes and ideas link across topics, and if you dive deep into the mechanisms of an idea, you will be able to apply these themes and ideas to other answers as well.

I will structure my tutorials to cater specifically to each student's style of learning. Whether it may through the aid of diagrams and pictures with a verbal explanation, or writing out answers clearly, each student has a different method of acquiring information, which is best suited to him or her.

My tutorials will not just be there to provide the student with information in a vacuum. I want to be able to give the student the skills necessary so they can study alone as well, using the tutorials as a booster to focus on material or concepts which they find especially challenging.
