I have over 4 years of experience in tutoring the sciences across a range of exam boards and levels, and am focused on ensuring each of my students understands how they will best reach their goals.
I am passionate about the subjects that I tutor, and am able to deliver them in innovative and engaging ways. My aim is to build up the confidence of my students in any given subject, and to help each individual to realise their potential.
Eleanor's last completed Admissions job with Jill: 1-2 hrs/week - I would like some advice and tips on writing my personal statement.
I have studied a BA in PPE, and also have an MA in Politics as well as an MSc in Economics. I have a knack for grinding down on complex problems until they look easy, and I love doing this with students and watching how things start to make sense to them. As regards language teaching: I am a German native speaker. What I think is even more important, though, is that I have learned several languages, both in school, but also since, in my free time (including French, Spanish, Portuguese and Russian), so I am well aware of how students learn languages and which aspects may be less intuitive than others.
I'm a postgraduate at The University of Oxford, and already hold a Congratulatory First in German (BA) with the best results of the 200 students in the Languages department, as well as the highest grades in Arts subjects at my college.
I also have over four years of tutoring experience, from primary through to GCSE, A Level, and undergraduate. It's a consistent delight to celebrate tutees' successes - be it getting to grips with a thorny bit of grammar, having a 'eureka!' moment with a tricky piece of literature, or passing exams with flying colours.
There can be no one-size-fits-all formula when it comes to a tutoring session. Every tutee has different likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, and will progress at an individual pace. I can help with anything from oral presentations and spoken fluency, to essays, literature, and grammar (having personally tried all the tips and tricks!).
I specialise in teaching GCSE (AQA) and IGCSE (Edexcel) Biology and Chemistry. I am familiar with the requirements of the different exam boards, and can tailor my teaching specifically to your needs. Homework is set online each week to consolidate understanding, and to gain practice with answering exam-style questions.
Throughout my medical degree, I have successfully helped prospective university students and medical students with their application process, including personal statement review, interview preparation (panel interviews, multiple mini-interviews, Oxbridge interviews) and UKCAT/BMAT revision.
Elizabeth's last completed Admissions job with Muhammad Hamzah: Intensive - I am looking for medicine interview practice.
I have tutored in maths & economics for six years, ranging from 7-18 years old. I am also a qualified teacher, with three years of teaching experience in a secondary school. For two of these years I was the Curriculum Leader for Maths & Economics, and was in charge of overhauling the curriculum in both subjects, planning and creating assessments, and supporting students who were falling behind or who needed challenging. This means I have wealth of experience in planning lessons to support students at all levels, including those with special educational needs; I have worked with many pupils with SEN, from dyslexia to autism, both as a teacher and tutor. Creating engaging resources and lessons which address difficulties students have in accessing or understanding the subject is at the heart of what I do.
I estimate I have at least 6000 hours of experience, having been a tutor since 2011. I initially started teaching Maths and Physics to Engineering students at University and I gradually expanded into secondary school level tuition. I have worked full time as a tutor since 2012 and during that time I have taught Maths, Physics, Chemistry and Engineering.
I have taught A Levels, IGCSE/GCSE, IB, Pre-U, AP and I have covered nearly every exam board including Edexcel, OCR, AQA, WJEC. All of my students are seeking to get into top Univeristies.
What makes me a good tutor is my ability to break down a subject and cover it in a particular order so that a student who might not have a good understanding can understand how to progress through the topics. It doesn't hurt that I have a sense of humour and make my lessons actually fun and enjoyable.

I am a qualified chemistry teacher with a Master's, Doctorate and teaching qualification from three Russell group universities. I am also an examiner for GCSE, A Level and IB Diploma so can offer advice and strategies to improve exam technique.
With over 15 years’ experience, I have helped hundreds of students gain more confidence and achieve exam success. Exam results from summer 2019:
• 88% of students achieved top grades
• IB chemistry (Higher Level) – two students achieved level 7, two students achieved level 6
• A Level chemistry – three students achieved A*, four students achieved A, two students achieved B (several of these were predicted C/D!)
• GCSE/IGCSE – three students achieved level 9, two students achieved level 8
My recent students have gone on to study at the Royal Veterinary College, Cambridge University, Oxford University, Manchester University, Edinburgh University, Imperial College (London), Kings College (London), Durham University, Queen Mary (London), Newcastle University, Leeds University, Bristol University and University College (London).
One of the most experienced and successful online tutors, I have delivered over 5,000 hours' online tuition to students in 16 countries! As a full-time professional chemistry tutor, I am 100% committed to my students' success and guarantee a reliable and professional service.
I have a lot of experience. In the last 5 years, I have tutored more than 60 students and over 1000 hours. In the last three years, I have specialized in online tutoring. I am familiar with many different syllabuses and focus on exam technique. Once the ideas are clear, is all about practice!
Andres's last completed
job with Alexander:
1-2 hrs/week - My name is Alexander and I am currently in Year 12 doing Maths, Further Maths and Physics. I aim to study Computer Science at Cambridge.
I'm interested in having tuition online, in order to help me prepare for STEP and CSAT.
I would like tuition mainly for the Computer Science Admissions Test for Cambridge (the test is all mathematical based), as I am leaning more towards applying for just Computer Science, instead of Computer Science with Maths at Cambridge.
Look forward to hearing from you soon.
I have successfully tutored a number of students in mathematics, physics, and computing in the past, at both A-level and GCSE. Among my most notable successes was helping a student who did not have classes in Further Maths available at school to achieve an A (highest grade at the time).
The best tutor will guide the student through a process of self-learning and tailor this skilfully to the individual student. It is paramount to properly motivate the pupil to ask the right questions to himself, whilst instilling an interest in the subject as much as possible. The tutor should generally enhance the learning experience beyond what any textbook or routine exercises can provide. With respect to mistakes, it is always important to be gentle and sympathetic, and encouragement should be given when progress is made, though not to the degree of fostering overconfidence. In brief, I believe in a highly interactive and open dialogue between teacher and student.
