Hello, I’m Ruben and I’ve just started my career as a science tutor. Having recently graduated from the university of Bristol (BSc in Biology with first class honours) I'm now tutoring KS4 sciences and A-level Biology for young and adult learners. I have experience as a research intern for labs at the University of Bristol and the University of Newcastle, and I’m currently volunteering as a part-time researcher for the London-Based Social enterprise ‘Mapping for change’. These experiences give me particular strengths in tutoring the practical elements of GCSE & A level biology syllabuses. Above all I aim for a co-operative learning environment, and create sessions to suit the learning style of each tutee. A session starts by devising learning aims which are both worthwhile and manageable. My lesson plans then combine two approaches. For new material, I introduce concepts though existing knowledge, examples and written exercises. I prepare high quality notes for each syllabus to be used for independent study. To consolidate previously taught material, I reiterate concepts using case studies, note taking and Q&A sessions. In preparation for exams, sessions will involve working through past paper questions & developing exam technique.
Availability: I’m available on all weekday evenings & weekends. I’m wiling to commute to students living within a five-mile radius of my home in Bethnal Green, provided travel expenses are subsidised.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
No official science tutoring experience to date. I was however leading regular revision sessions & group presentations for my peers during my undergraduate degree, and have been regularly child-minding for a number of families in the last year.
