Rhys

Cambridge Tutor

I am a graduate of the University of Cambridge. I hold Bachelors and Masters degrees in Natural Sciences (Biological), specialising in Biochemistry, and have recently completed my Ph.D. in Genetics. After conducting postdoctoral research in Pharmacology, I am now working at The Linnean Society of London as their Education Officer. Here, I design educational resources to supplement the National Curriculum to assist teachers with biology teaching.

At secondary school, Richard Hale School, Hertford, Hertfordshire (a Science College), I achieved A* grades in 13 GCSEs and A grades in 7 A-Levels, both of which included Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths.

Tutoring Experience

I gained extensive supervising (teaching) experience whilst an undergraduate and postgraduate at the University of Cambridge. I have supervised biology theory to Masters Degree level and have supervised numerous undergraduate research projects (all students achieved class 2.i or higher) and summer/visiting student projects. I have also frequently demonstrated in undergraduate practical labs.

Tutoring Approach

I will offer one-to-one tuition, with the exact approach directed by the tutee.

In most cases, I would break the session in to two. In the first half, we would go through questions and topics the tutee is struggling with. In the second half, we would work through example questions, where I would work with the tutee to enhance their knowledge, technique and understanding of the topic.
