Personal Description:

My eclectic background - which diversely spans from Biochemistry to acting - means I am a well-rounded, personable and versatile tutor. This dichotomy of science and art means I have a balanced approach to teaching, and am very flexible in my approaches to learning, and the range of subjects with which I can assist students.

I have held a passion for the acting since a young age - leading me to train at The Oxford School of Drama after previously completing my Masters in Molecular & Cellular Biochemistry at Oxford University. My work as an actor has ranged from all manner of **Web Address Removed** and radio work; I also record audiobooks for the RNIB Talking Books service, and am a member of the human rights theatre company iceandfire. I love to remain on the other side too, and hence attend the theatre and cinema as often as possible.

I am extremely passionate about languages and am in the process of teaching myself German, Spanish and Italian at present; and - when the opportunities arise - am a huge enthusiast of swimming, skiing, and photography.

Tutoring Experience:

I have garnered over nine years' extensive experience as a Private Tutor for a variety of students and skill sets, after graduating from Oxford with a 2:1 Honours MBiochem degree in Molecular & Cellular Biochemistry. My particular focus areas in tutoring include GCSE & iGCSE Triple Sciences (Biology/Chemistry/Physics), GCSE Double Sciences (Core & Additional), and AS/A Level Biology. Please note that these are all equivalent to the studies undertaken between the ages of 14-18.

Under my tuition, one of my long-term iGCSE students recently achieved triple 9 grades in his Biology, Chemistry and Physics results. A iGCSE Biology mature student also progressed from zero prior experience to an A* grade in just one year; and another international student, new to the UK system in Year 11, went from a U grade in her mocks to an A in her final Biology GCSE, after a week's intensive study together over the Easter holidays.

I also worked for over two years as the resident Science/Chemistry teacher at Rhodes Farm School, an independent hospital school, in North London. Here I taught students at KS3, GCSE and A Level; whilst also communicating with the pupils, their families, and their home schools to ensure they kept up with their studies, and prepared for eventual reintegration into mainstream education.

Tutoring Approach:

My work as a professional actor means that I am an open, engaging, animated, and communicative teacher. I encourage my students to take an active role in their own learning, making their own notes and feeling free to ask questions as we work. I avoid an approach of simply reciting and copying - always challenging students with guided questions and visualisations of the problem at hand.

Most of all - I try to make my lessons fun and enjoyable! Science is a fascinating, vital topic; and if I feel I have instilled a sense of this in my students, then the lesson has been a success. When this happens, exam success tends to follow!
