With over 60 hours tutoring experience across a number of top quality online platforms, and over 25 hours one-to-one mentoring for a highly acclaimed Oxbridge consultancy, I’m equipped with the knowledge and experience to help students get into the top universities and to achieve the best grades possible. As a Mentor, I’ve given application advice on two summer school programs in Oxford over the past two years and have also been a student ambassador at the University since my first year.
My lessons will focus on areas where students have a weak understanding and where there are gaps in their knowledge. This means that you get what you want most out of sessions.
I have always learnt best where a teacher is receptive, patient and understanding. I always strive to ensure that a student feels like they can ask any question they want and that it's okay to make mistakes. This way students can learn to have confidence in their answers and areas for improvement can be quickly identified.

Biology job with Kirsty:
1-2 hrs/week - Hiya, I'm really struggling with biology, mainly the B8 and B9 Bioenergetics (so like respiration and photosynthsis) and I cant seem to get my head around it,, I dont understand any of it, If I'm being truly honest.
I have adequate experience in being able to teach others, in the form of tutoring, presentations and seminars. My current qualification involves giving presentations and oral examinations, which requires explanation of scientific content to different audiences. I have also regularly supervised undergraduate and masters students on their final year research projects which involves day-to-day in lab supervision, discussion and report reviews, as well as demonstrating in undergraduate practicals at my university. I also have experience proof-reading and editing reports and written work. More recently, I have become a tutor for an online university Master's degree course for Kaplan Open Learning, in which I run seminars, discussion forums and provide feedback on assignments to students. I believe that I am able to adapt to the different teaching requirements of the individual, and confidently help the individual to understand the depths of knowledge that they require for their qualification. I am happy to teach in the form of example exam paper questions, mind maps, essays, or any way the individual feels is best for them. A variety of teaching techniques will allow the individual to become more adaptable and engaged with learning for their particular qualification. My teaching philosophy focuses on encouraging the individual to think for themselves and have the confidence to challenge and question should they not understand; but whilst enjoying learning along the way.

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.

Elizabeth's last completed GCSE Biology job with Zariyah: 1-2 hrs/week - I am an adult studying GCSE AQA Biology.Although it is now start of April, I am really struggling to identify even what and how to revise and then how to intensively structure revision each day. I have decided to choose the Higher tier. I wish to achieve at least a grade 7.I require tutoring ASAP to resolve these issues and help me realistically and productively work towards my deserved grade.
I am a volunteer for a number of organisations which aim to help disadvantaged students reach university and have tutored a number of students to success in their exams so I have a lot of experience of working with young people and helping them to reach their potential. I am happy to help as a subject specific tutor for GCSE or A-Level, or help students through the sometimes daunting university application process and admissions tests.
About my tutorials:
Sessions are always student-led. I plan tutorials which reflect the student's level of understanding, giving access to notes, including suggested exam questions, which the student can add to during the tutorial, or use as a memory-aid following the tutorial.
I have received lots of positive feedback about this approach.
I can also help students through questions or tasks which they bring, and the best tutorials involve this collaborative input.
The pace of sessions is determined by the student, and I am happy to go through any topic with a number of different approaches until we find one which the student finds helpful.
