Andrea

Battersea Tutor

I am an experienced PhD in Cell Biology and Microbiology graduated at Imperial College London in 2016. Prior to this I completed my Master degree (MSc) in Molecular Biotechnology in Biotechnology at University of Bologna, Italy.

I have a solid background in Cell Biology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Despite not completing education within the UK I am knowledgeable with the existing University, GCSE, A-Level and degree levels systems with more than sufficient knowledge in these areas. Furthermore, I have a broad work experience in various academic environments including world-class institutes in Australia, France, Italy and UK.

I am an excellent communicator with a tracked record of presentations at international conferences, and a published author in the field of Cell Biology and Microbiology Research.

Tutoring Experience

I offer tuitions in Biology and Chemistry given my academic background. I have adequate teaching experience acquired through my qualifications and positions. I am a freelance tutor at university level, managing classes of students for microbiology and infection control, along with providing help and understanding to students in Biology and Biochemistry.
On various occasions I have presented my work to audiences of different backgrounds, allowing information to be accessible and interpretable to others.
Lastly, I have tutored students previously with the UK examination system, helping with exam technique and preparation.

Tutoring Approach

The requirements of each individual student are paramount to future learning and success.
“Tailoring” is my keyword; I adapt my method to the problem, as it is important to understand the tutee’s strengths and needs, first.

My approach is filled by the experience I have gained completing both my MSc and my PhD. It includes presentations, question and answer sessions, devising essay plans, mind maps and problem solving. If necessary, we break each topic down into manageable pieces in order to build up a complete understanding of the subject. I am also happy to provide past paper questions relevant to the exam board studied.

The aim of my approach is to ensure the student feels more confident when faced with a problem, and to learn sufficient information whilst enjoying learning along the way.
