I am a friendly, patient and approachable tutor whose teaching approach revolves around the student, identifying their weaknesses and adapting to their needs so that they understand the subject thoroughly. Asking questions is encouraged, so that students gain confidence in dealing with their subjects and my aim is to equip them with the skills needed to be able to work effectively and independently.
Connecting subjects to real-life examples makes the subject more enjoyable and relatable. By explaining concepts in different ways, students gain a new understanding of their work. Understanding the foundation of a subject is extremely important to be able to progress to more advanced levels successfully and so I will always do extra work in this area if I feel a student has weaknesses in this area.
I provide worksheets and test papers as necessary, at suitable levels for each individual student`s needs. I also provide exam paper practice in addition to teaching the topics required on the specification. Helping the student to develop good study skills and revision techniques is also a high priority. I enjoy seeing my students gain understanding and make progress in their subjects.
I have a degree in Genetics (BSc Hons) and masters in Molecular Medicine (MSc) which have given me a thorough understanding of biology as well as statistics and chemistry concepts beyond A-Level.

I have several years tutoring experience, having taught a wide variety of students from primary school all the way to A-Level and adult learners. My students gain confidence in their studies and end up better able to work independently. Those who have studied with me make big improvements, exceeding expectations in their subjects. GCSE students who have started with foundation papers have moved onto higher papers.
I also have experience teaching for entrance exams to independent schools, being most familiar with 11+ and Common Entrance 13+ exams for schools in the Buckinghamshire and Berkshire areas, as well as the North London Girls` School Consortium. Schools my students for 11+ and Common Entrance 13+ have been accepted to include: Harrow School, Merchant Taylor`s School, St Mary`s School Ascot, St George`s School Ascot, Francis Holland School Regent`s Park, Tring School, Queen`s College London, ArtsEd, Queen`s Gate School, ACS Hillingdon International School and Heathfield School, among others.
Past teaching experience includes: - Science and maths at GCSE level - Chemistry and biology at A-Level, across different specifications - English, maths and science from KS1 to KS3 - English, maths, science, verbal reasoning, and non-verbal reasoning foCommon Entrance 11+ and 13+ exams - Microsoft Office, general computer literacy and IT for adults looking to refresh their skills as part of career progression For those students applying to university, I have provided help and feedback on personal statements, having plenty of experience of my own.
