Full-time tutor with over 10 years teaching experience, DPhil in Biochemistry from University of Oxford.
- Cardiff University
- University of Oxford
I am an erudite and very capable educator with over 10 years of teaching experience in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics at both GCSE-level and A-level.
I gained my DPhil in Molecular Biochemistry and Chemical Biology from the University of Oxford. During my DPhil I published first-author papers in highly-regarded journals and filed a patent on my research. I also gave undergraduate tutorials and I was an admissions interviewer in the Biochemistry department for three years.
I work full-time as a private tutor and educational consultant. I am highly organized and plan my lessons thoroughly to ensure my students gain in both knowledge and confidence. I also ensure my students develop good examination technique with plenty of practice answering exam-style questions. I am an Assessment Specialist with both CIE and OCR and thus have an excellent understanding of the examination process.
Adept PhD student, specialising in biochemistry and oncology, from University College London
- University College London (University of London)
- University of Nottingham
- Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine
My motivation for science, coupled with my ambition has led me to pursing a research career in the biosciences that I hope will lead to teaching the next generation of scientists. I have written for the Imperial College student newspaper, Felix, to convey interesting and relevant ideas in medical biology. I have obtained a thorough understanding of biology, chemistry and biochemistry during my six years of higher education. My strengths lie in my communication and clarity with students, detailed understanding of biological and chemical sciences and analysis of examination questions to devise appropriate answers.
Informal and friendly Languages & Linguistics expert, specialising in Spanish, Phonetics, and Oxbridge Admissions (including MLAT Preparation).
- Háskóli Íslands / University of Iceland, Reykjavík
- University of Oxford
I fell into tutoring when offered some part-time tuition work, during my study of Linguistics and Spanish at St Catherine's College, Oxford. Roughly eight years later, tutoring has become my full-time profession, still with a focus on those two subjects, as well as university entrance to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities for a range of subjects. I am lucky to teach language and linguistics - two subjects which dovetail each other and continually provide new avenues for exploration. I have helped students improve their language grades at all levels, and achieve university offers from Oxbridge, Edinburgh, Bristol, and others. I take an informal but rigorous approach to tutoring, taking advantage of the personal, non-classroom relationship that tuition allows. I have a special (but rarely indulged!) interest in Old Norse and modern Icelandic.
