Personal Description:

I am a passionate, patient and committed tutor with over 10 years experience in tutoring students in Sciences and Maths up to A-Levels as well as English and Chinese (Mandarin) up to A-Levels and as a second language. I hold a bachelor degree in Natural Sciences and a PhD (doctorate) in Biochemistry from the University of Cambridge.

As an enthusiastic and patient tutor, I thoroughly enjoy helping students develop their understanding of the topics at hand. I believe problem solving and critical thinking are essential skills that students should develop alongside with the knowledge they acquire. I also find it important to tailor my approach to individual students by monitor the progress and pace of individual students.

Besides tutoring for mainstream subjects, I am TESOL qualified (Trinity College, London) and have taught in a language school to help children and adult learners with their English qualifications.

I have had several years of experience in advising students on their school and university choices. As a Cambridge graduate, I would be very happy to assist with Oxbridge applications and also personal statements writing.

As a published academic writer, I can also help proof-reading essays and dissertations.

Tutoring Experience:

I have two years experience supervising undergraduate students at the University of Cambridge

I have tutored children, aged 7-14, in Maths, Sciences, English and Chinese. I have also tutored students studying GCSE, AS- and A-Levels in Maths, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, English and Chinese.

I have experience in teaching English as a second language to children and adult learners, and prepared students for various English qualifications (including IELTS)

Tutoring Approach:

Typically with a practical approach, I use past papers for practice that enables students to get the sense of the language and style of answering exam style questions. This also builds the confidence in tackling questions and highlights gaps in learning. I also use learning aids such as powerpoint presentations to explore and encourage students reading around the topics to make learning more memorable
