Personal Description:

I am first year Biochemistry undergraduate at Imperial College London, also having completed a full year of a Biomedical Science course with a 1st class. I have a strong background in Sciences - particularly Chemistry and Biology - and Maths.

I was awarded an overall mark of 9.75/10 (A* equivalent) in the Romanian Baccalaureate exam, with a 9.9/10 (A* equivalent) in Maths and a 10/10 (A* equivalent) in Biology.

I have also sat the Cambridge International Chemistry A Level in 2015 summer, and was awarded an A*.

I have recently taken the IELTS test and was awarded an overall mark of 8.5/9 (CEFR Level: C2).

In high school, I participated in numerous science competitions and Olympiads, my most notable result being a 3rd place with a bronze medal in the Biology Olympiad.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching Biology and Chemistry for over a year now, both in one-to-one in-home sessions and online tutorials (using Skype). From explaining theory to solving practice questions, our tutorials were a success.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a patient, cheerful person, with a genuine wish of helping students reach their goals. I always give my best to make tutorials interesting and dynamic, and I use teaching methods that trigger understanding rather than just memorising. Apart from usual textbooks, I use additional materials in order to make students comprehend certain notions better. For instance, I use polystirene balls and wooden sticks to build 3D molecule models to help Chemistry students visualise chemical compounds.

I always tailor my teaching methods to fit my students' needs and be suitable for reaching their goals. Starting with a detailed preparation plan which is conceived based on the balance between the goal of the student, the amount of work/material to be covered and the student's availability to allocate a certain amount of time for studying the subject. During the preparation, I combine theory teaching with problem solving, problem based learning, giving the right amount of homework and tests to ensure the student develops the skills needed in particular areas of the material.
