I am a Sutton Trust scholar currently studying for a BSc degree in Molecular Biology and Biochemistry at Middlebury College, US.
My academic successes have allowed me to begin travelling the world at the age of 18, and I am passionate about equipping others with the knowledge (and, in turn, qualifications) that they need to tread the most interesting path that life can offer them.
Having recently been through the process of university determining examinations, I understand the stress that students are under to perform and am able to assist them in working through it, whilst having a good time!
I worked as a voluntary peer tutor in Bio/Chem classes for GCSE students (whilst I was in the Sixth form) so have experience explaining scientific concepts to GCSE level students with great success. I was also a peer tutor for A-level biology classes, so am confident teaching biology at this level also.
I am methodical in my approach and, through trial and error, determine the learning style of my students and adapt my tutoring to match.
Generally, I believe that exam success comes from three main steps-
1)Securing content through discussion and diagram.
2)Testing content using materials provided by the examination board (past papers).
3)Evaluating the outcome of the testing, and discussing ways to work through errors: sometimes widening the search for understanding beyond the bounds of the textbook in order to truly become engaged with the material. I am very patient and adjust the pace of learning to student needs and time constraints.
