I am a very experienced, friendly and encouraging tutor. I draw out the best in my students by shaping lessons and homework around student's individual needs, getting to know them so I can determine what motivates them and coaching them to believe in their own abilities. I have a track record of helping students improve their grades. I tutor both online and face-to-face.
I graduated from UCL in 2014 with a Bachelor`s degree in Synthetic Organic Chemistry and Biomedical Sciences. In 2017 I achieved a distinction in a Master`s degree in Biomedical Engineering at Queen Mary, University of London. I am currently studying Medicine (Graduate Entry) at St George`s, University of London. I also have a Foundation in Life Coaching from The Coaching Academy; I incorporate life coaching principles into lessons to motivate my students.
A level Biology: I have taught around 200 hours and covered the OCR, AQA and Edexcel exam boards.
A level Chemistry: I have taught around 60 hours and covered the OCR, AQA and Edexcel exam boards.
GCSE Science: I have taught around 170 hours and covered the OCR (A and B), AQA and Edexcel exam boards.
GCSE Maths: I have taught around 130 hours and covered predominantly the Edexcel exam board.
Adult numeracy aptitude tests: I have helped young adults to succeeded in numeracy and numerical reasoning tests for graduate scheme applications.
GAMSAT: I have helped both science and non-science graduates to prepare for this tough exam. I can help with Section 1, 2 and 3.
Undergraduate Biology / Biomedical Sciences: I have mentored students in the year below struggling with BSc-level topics.
UCAS and Interviews: I have helped several students with their personal statements and interview preparation.
Overall, I have 3 years experience tutoring

Degree-level biomedical science
A level Biology “Thank you for teaching me, I will definitely update you on my results. You are a wonderful tutor and I would like to book lessons again nearer exam times if possible.” – Winnie, A level Biology (OCR) “I just wanted to thank you for all the support you have given Ella. She has found the sessions with you invaluable and you have done wonders for her understanding and confidence.” – Lucie, A level Biology (AQA) “I just wanted to say what a wonderful tutor Eleanor is. She has helped my daughter get fantastic grades. She has a fantastic way of tapping into a students mind and giving them the motivation and belief that anything is possible and that learning can so much fun. My daughter really looks forwards to her lessons with Eleanor and I believe that she is one of the best tutors that I have met. You will not be disappointed as she is amazing. I give Eleanor a 10 out of 10 and would highly recommend her.” – Lara, A level Biology (Edexcel) and GCSE Mathematics (Edexcel) A level Chemistry “Eleanor has been tutoring my daughter in A level Biology and Chemistry on a weekly basis since March 2018 and would highly support her application. I have found her to be approachable, extremely organised and responsive to e-mail and other messages. She has always been punctual and my daughter reports that her subject knowledge is excellent. She has set work between visits which has been helpful and appropriate.” – Ruth, A level Chemistry (Edexcel) and Biology (AQA) “Excellent all round – provides lots of extra support and resources. Eleanor is also very good to talk to if there is a problem concerning your studies but also worries or questions to do with the future, such as university or careers in science. I am very grateful for all the help she’s given me over the past year, and I would thoroughly recommend her to anyone studying Biology and Chemistry.” – Lettie, A level Chemistry (OCR) and Biology (Edexcel) “I got an A A A* so very happy. Thank you for your help.” – Noli, A level Chemistry (OCR) and Biology (Edexcel) GCSE and KS3 Science “Eleanor is an excellent tutor. Her lessons and homework were very structured and productive. She was always prepared for each session and built excellent rapport with my child. I would happily recommend Eleanor to other parents.” – Alev, KS3 and GCSE Physics (AQA) “Eleanor has been teaching my daughter GCSE maths, chemistry and physics for the last 8 months and she has been an excellent tutor from the beginning. She is punctual, reliable and has a calm and reassuring manner. My daughter finds her teaching methods invaluable in helping her to understand the subjects she finds difficult to understand. Eleanor is always well prepared and she follows up each session with lesson notes, homework and additional resource ideas. I can highly recommend her.” – Caroline, GCSE Physics, Chemistry (AQA) and Mathematics (Edexcel) “Eleanor has made a real difference to our daughter’s confidence in the approach to her mock GCSEs. She has enjoyed having an older “student” to help her. We have appreciated Eleanor’s professionalism and can see the impact of her organised approach to studying and revising the various topics. We would wholeheartedly recommend Eleanor.” – Danuta, GCSE Combined Science (AQA) “Eleanor is a unique tutor to come across, a specialist in science and highly knowledgeable in her field. Eleanor is a very good motivator and confidence builder, and takes real effort in actual teaching and helping the students to fully understand.” – Karamveer, GCSE Combined Science (OCR) GCSE Mathematics “Experienced and very professional in her teaching, would definitely recommend.” – Yasemin, GCSE Mathematics (Edexcel) “You are the best teacher my daughter has had. She has really benefited from your teaching and lovely approach.” – Denise, GCSE Mathematics (Edexcel) Adult numeracy “Eleanor is a fantastic tutor who helped me enormously in preparing for Numerical Reasoning style tests. With Eleanor’s supportive and patient teaching style I have been able to make great progress and I looking forward to starting a Graduate Position in September. I would highly recommend Eleanor as a tutor!” – Tom, Graduate Schemes’ Numerical Reasoning Tests Prep GAMSAT “As a Humanities graduate the science aspect of the GAMSAT was very daunting. With Eleanor’s help I have been able to start tackling section 3 more successfully. She adapts the lessons to your learning style and pace and makes difficult subjects interesting.” - Caitlin, GAMSAT “Eleanor is a patient and hardworking teacher who always goes the extra mile both in her preparation of lessons and in following them up with extra worksheets and other resources. My lessons with her have been extremely helpful and I feel I have grown in confidence under her instruction. Thank you, Eleanor!” - Ellie, GAMSAT
