About me

I am a recent graduate of Natural Sciences (Biochemistry major) from the University of Cambridge. From a young age, I have been an inquisitive scientist and fascinated by how maths and science can be used to explain the natural world.

I received the awards for the highest mark in Europe in Biology IGCSE and Chemistry IGCSE and the highest mark in Cyprus in Biology A-Level. I also achieved 99.5% and 99.8% in Mathematics IGCSE and A-Level respectively. I have had the privilege of working in various laboratories researching a range of STEM disciplines; my most recent experience being at the Dupree Lab, where I discovered a new class of carbohydrate-digesting enzyme.

My many years of speech and drama training have cultivated my creativity and made me a proficient communicator, which was helpful to me when I took on the role of an exhibitor at The Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition in London.

Tutor Experience

I have extensive experience in both teaching and one-on-one tutoring biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics at secondary school level. I have worked with students at all levels (KS3, GCSE and A-Level), and have prepared students for a range of examinations (GCSE, IGCSE and A-Level) across several exam boards, including Edexcel, AQA, OCR and Cambridge. During my gap year, I spent several months working part-time at The Senior School, Nicosia, Cyprus, where I taught mathematics and the sciences. I currently tutor these same subjects online. I also have experience running online seminars for science and maths exam preparation, as well as for UCAS personal statements.

My approach to tutoring is built on the principle of inspiring my students to develop a genuine interest in their subject and a thirst for knowledge; while at the same time helping them to master important skills such as exam technique. My lessons are primarily student-led and tailored to focus on specific areas of weakness, which I target through oral and visual explanations, written notes and practice exam questions. I work hard to create a learning environment that is interesting, enjoyable and interactive, in order to enable my students to reach their maximum potential and achieve excellent grades in their exams.
