Personal Description:

I am a Masters student at the University of York, undertaking an MSc in Biology by research. I graduated from the University of Bradford with a First class BSc (Hons) in Clinical Sciences, took Cambridge Pre-U as a more challenging alternative to A levels, attaining M1, M3 and M2 in Chemistry, Physics and Art (equivalent to A, B/C, B) and achieved an A* in A level Biology. I also achieved 10 A* grades at GCSE, including triple sciences. Biology is my passion, although I am also highly proficient in Chemistry/Biochemistry as well. I hold a current DBS (CRB) check and am available to tutor at evenings and weekends in the York area.

Tutoring Experience:

I tutored my younger sister through her GCSE and A level science. I also lead problem based learning sessions as part of my Clinical Sciences degree, and as course representative I organised group revision sessions for up to 20 students. I was an army cadet for 4 years, and was responsible for teaching up to 30 cadets how to safely use firearms.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to use a problem-based approach to tutoring, where I set problems and questions before the session, and then discuss the answers in person. I like to use mind-mapping and colour to go through and consolidate complex topics, and like to encourage and help tutees to make develop their own revision and learning styles for an ongoing learning experience.
