I have a years’ experience teaching English in Senegal. Closer to home, I’ve spent a lot of time teaching in primary schools about the environment, climate change and conservation with UCL Roots and Shoots.
I have tutored students for AQA and OCR biology at GCSE and A-Level.
Subjects I teach
Secondary school: Devonport High school for Girls, Plymouth
A-Levels: Biology A*, Chemistry A*, French B
University: currently in 2nd year of biological sciences at UCL, achieved a first in first year
Societies: I run UCL Roots and Shoots (A conservation education society)
My Approach to Private Tuition
Private tuition is the perfect opportunity to have a face to face discussion with someone who loves and lives their subject.
I teach the essential exam technique and key information using relevant and interesting examples, imaginative exercises and lots of discussion. I want my students to leave not only feeling equipped to take an exam, but with a lasting curiosity and appreciation of the subject. I like to hone in on the area that the student is having difficulty with and make sure they fully grasp that before moving on to another topic. It’s a wonderful feeling watching the confidence of a student rocket as they master something that the week before was the reason they dismissed the whole subject.
My belief is that achieving good grades is far easier when you enjoy the subject!
