About Me

About myself

I am a passionate, open-minded and creative academic professor and tutor in Geography & Earth Sciences and Bioenvironmental Sciences.
I am currently a Geography & Biogeology University teacher and have been involved in exam marking through all levels up to University (OCR, AQA, CIE)
I hold a First class Master's degree in Geography and Geosciences (MSc), reflecting my great passion for the Environment and Nature that surrounds us, BSc in Biology and BSc in Geography and Environmental Sciences, Postgraduate Certification in Education (PGCE) and a Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA).

My teaching approach

My main focus is trying to wake up the passion and genuine interest in my students. Through creative and dynamic approaches I show the student a great variety of applications of what he/she is learning in the real world. We start by addressing students' weaker areas and solidifying their knowledge and understanding in these fields, while we develop overall confidence in the subject necessary for the top scores.


• Forget about the headaches that Science, Biology and Geography bring you and develop a passion for Nature Sciences and all the eye-opening perspectives the knowledge of our Blue Planet gives you.
• Learn in a time-effective and accessible manner.
• Do you need support in your regular coursework/homework or maybe you are preparing for an important exam? Or perhaps you just want to boost your performance?
o I am here to help you and support you through all that process!
• I am perfectly prepared to back you up through your University workload, assignments and exam preparations.
• My lessons are dynamic, audio-visual and interactive

Classes are pre-planned and tailored for the individual, adapting to your needs with fully prepared notes and supporting materials for:

• SATs
• GCSEs
• National 1-5s
• AS / A levels
• Collage / University

Tutor Experience

90% of my tutees score 9/10 at their GSCES and all of them score A/A* at A-levels!

• I have been teaching GCSE/ A level Geography, Geology, Biology and Environmental Sciences for the last 6 years across a great variety of exam boards with over 5 years of experience with University Undergraduate students evaluating and proof-reading their dissertations both in Physical, Human Geography, Geology and Bioenvironmental Sciences.

• I am also a professional English teacher with over 6 years of experience in private tutoring and preparing for English examinations for both UK students (GCSEs and A levels) and international ones (TOEFL, CELTA, Cambridge Certificates).

My extensive over 6 years of experience in a classroom setting, one-to-one & group online teaching and tutoring UK students has given me a great variety of insights into different teaching approaches. Last 4 years I have been employed as an academic professor/assistant across various universities in Scotland and the UK (University of Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Manchester and Queen’s University of Belfast) and as a private online tutor. Thus, I am perfectly familiarised with the requirements and skill sets needed for students entering Highschool, College or University.

I have taught students taking GCSE/IGCSE, A Level, AP, Pre-U and IB exams – conducting the majority of my lessons online. During my time as a tutor, I have covered all of the major exam boards for A-Levels including AQA, OCR A &B, Edexcel, CIE, and EDUQAS including international CAIM and IGCSE Edexcel.

I estimate I have delivered around 7000 hours of 1:1 tutorials to students since 2018. I have taught Geography, Geology and Bioevnironemtal Sciences extensively. This has been done at all levels from Secondary school to the Undergraduate level. I was covering the national syllabus, practical/experimental work, exam preparation, providing predicted grades, and working with national and international students.
