Personal Description:

I did my Undergraduate degree in Biochemistry from Oxford University and am currently pursuing a DPhil in Pathology at Oxford. I teach GCSE and A' level Biology, Physics and Chemistry and am available to tutor undergraduate Biochemistry as well.

Tutoring Experience:

My teaching journey began with mentoring GCSE students in Mathematics and Sciences during my A' level studies in Pakistan. This led to an opportunity to teach Biology summer revision classes to A' level students while pursuing my undergraduate. I thoroughly enjoyed these and my passion for teaching led me to continue teaching GCSE and A' level students (Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry and Physics) side by side my DPhil studies at Oxford.

Many of my students have been international students who come to Oxford for summer courses or short courses during half-term. These have included preparation for common entrance examination and retakes. Moreover, I have regular students who approach me for improving their grades. Many of my students have improved from C/D's to A/B's with seven of my students achieving A*s, and I have assisted students in getting into top schools including Epsom, Uppingham and Knightsbridge.

I am keen to improve the way learning in perceived and achieved in the classroom. This led me to develop an online course for A' level Chemistry for home-schooled students which involved organising material in an easy to follow way, preparing weekly tests and monthly exams as well as various interactive and visual resources to improve understanding.

I am also passionate about mentoring students and regularly prepare students applying to Oxbridge.

My Undergraduate teaching experience involves demonstrating in undergraduate Biochemistry and Pathology practicals as well as tutoring Biochemistry to groups of 3-4 Oxford undergraduate students. To enable this, I have undergone extensive training in the university and I draw from the techniques learnt to inspire and pass on intellectual curiosity and analytical ability in my students.

Tutoring Approach:

I am passionate about making a difference in how my students approach learning. I believe in inculcating curiosity for the subject and use a variety of interactive resources as well as linking what they learn in class to the outside world. In my opinion, this strategy is not only important to prevent loss of interest in the subject but also motivates them to be excited about their learning and perform well in exams. I am a firm believer in adapting teaching methods to suit individual needs as I, through my experience, have discovered that one strategy does not fit all. Hence, I perform a thorough appraisal of my students before embarking on a program of teaching. For students who approach me for improving their grades, I focus on their exam techniques and performance.
