Personal Description:

Having graduated from Oxford University in 2011 with a 2:1 degree in Biological Sciences, I have a very good knowledge of most aspects of biology, with particular strengths in biochemistry (proteins, genetics, photosynthesis and respiration - those tricky subjects at A level!). I'm currently undertaking an MSc in Clinical Animal Behaviour at Lincoln University - although animal behaviour currently only makes up a small portion of some exam boards, I am always very happy to discuss this fascinating area of biology to those who are interested or considering reading Zoology at university.

I teach AS and A-level Biology to students of all abilities, whether they feel they are overwhelmed by the amount of material they have to learn, need help with particular things, or are happy with their understanding but would like to look at exam technique. My experience of tutoring most if not all of the exam boards over the years means I have become familiar with the individual quirks and preferences of each.

Although my main strengths lie within Biology, I am happy to teach 11+ related subjects to younger students, such as Maths, English, verbal and non-verbal reasoning.

I can also offer help in preparation for Oxbridge interviews (in the areas of Biology, Biochemistry and Human Sciences).

Tutoring Experience:

I have been providing private tuition in Biology and Science since August 2011 and have around 1000 hours of tutoring experience gained through both private and agency-mediated routes.


I've recently trialed some online tutoring with my existing students. The setup allows me to share screens via Skype to allow students to view my real-time sketches and explanations as well as a two-way discussions. The trials have been very well received and some students opted to have sessions this way permanently. I offer a 10% discount from my in-person fee for this arrangement, however the service does require an appropriate speed of internet!

Tutoring Approach:

Having benefited from personal tutoring at A-level myself I feel that - above all - it is important that a student feel that s/he is able to ask questions, however 'stupid' or irrelevant they may fear them to be. A lot of students in school worry that they are incapable of the work that is required of them, when often they are more than capable but are not confident enough or are afraid to ask. On occasion, it can simply be that teachers in school work at a pace which is a little too fast! My ambition for tutoring is to create an informal and unintimidating relationship without these concerns, where students are allowed to develop at a pace that is suited to them and come to love the subject of Biology for its own sake as well as for exams (honestly, it's a fabulous subject!).
