Map for Amy (Miss)


Personal Description:

I am a PhD student at The Blizard Institute of Cellular and Molecular Biology. My research looks at how diet during pregnancy can affect the genetics and epigenetics of the offspring (you are what your parents ate!). I graduated from the University of Cambridge in 2015 with a BA and an MSci in Natural Sciences, specialising in Biochemistry.

I am available for GCSE and A-level Biology tutoring, as well as preparation for Oxbridge and Medicine applications and interviews.

Tutoring Experience:

I have demonstrated science to children from toddlers to teenagers for the Cambridge Hands on Science (CHaOS) team and taught at science festivals across the country. Having had the opportunity to do work experience in a lab aged 16, I have hosted A-level students in my lab to give them the vital practical experience that they need for their science and medicine degree applications. Teaching is a fundamental part of being a scientist and I am keen to share my love of biology with both those that want a career in science or medicine and need a challenge, as well as those who perhaps don’t see the beauty of it just yet.

I have guided prospective Cambridge students through the application procedure, from personal statement to interview, with a thus far 100% success rate. I was also heavily involved in the Access Scheme at my Cambridge college.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach can be flexible depending on the needs of the tutee:

• June-December: University application consultation. Includes CV and personal statement advice, proofreading and interview preparation. For Oxbridge and Medicine applications, I advise starting these sessions over the summer. Sessions starting immediately.

• September onwards: Support throughout the new two-year A-level course or GCSE course, including in depth coverage of the specification (AQA, OCR A and B, Edexcel A and B, Cambridge Pre-U), improving understanding of the material and honing exam technique. These sessions can be tailored to the needs and learning styles of the tutee. Sessions starting from 12/09/16. Booking at least 2 weeks in advance.

• September onwards: Revision of first year material for students wanting to keep the AS material ticking over during their A2 year (specifications starting 2015). Sessions starting from 12/09/16.

• Stretch and challenge – going above and beyond the course material to the more juicy bits of biology and discussion of current research (useful for Oxbridge and Medicine interviews). Sessions starting immediately.

My ultimate aim with any tutee is to instil confidence and the enthusiasm for the subject that has got me to where I am today.
