I am a full-time Science tutor and have a First class degree in Pharmacology from Kings College London and a PhD from the University of Oxford. My general curiosity in Biology and nature has always helped motivate me in my studies and I hope that through tutoring I can inspire and transfer my enthusiasm for science to my students. Due to the nature of my educational background, I have an excellent understanding of the Science subjects and I am adept in explaining complex concepts and ideas in a more understandable and manageable way.

How would you describe your teaching style?

I am a friendly, patient and enthusiastic science tutor who has over 5 years of experience in tutoring, mentoring and teaching science to those from the ages of 11 to PhD level. I provide a personalised tuition programme either ONLINE or in the tutee's home. My tutoring style is very flexible and varies based upon the student's needs. These needs are usually pinpointed within the first meeting and I tailor all sessions to the individual needs and requirements. I apply a variety of different teaching techniques and styles that I have found to be effective in order to make studying enjoyable, interesting as well as beneficial, helping students to reach their full potential. I make structured lesson plans tailored to student's needs and will set regular tasks to ensure full understanding of topics under discussion. My method of teaching greatly helps a student understand their subject and gives them the confidence needed to excel and succeed in their studies. The tuition sessions will be catered to the needs of the pupil, focusing on any weakness. I ensure that tuition sessions are as individual, fun and interesting as possible. I have extensive experience in mentoring and tutoring KS3, GCSE, iGCSE, A level, BSc and Medical undergraduate students as well as PhD students from elite universities including Oxford University, Imperial College and UCL. I also have extensive experience with university students of all academic levels and abilities as well as have a good working knowledge and experience of university marking and assessment systems. I have taught many individuals intensively for their GCSE and A-levels in the run up to exams. I have a proven track record of ensuring students excel to their full potential and all my students have achieved a 100% pass rate at GCSE, iGCSE, A-level, undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
