As a final year medical student, TEDx speaker, published author and tutor with 7y+ experience, I am passionate about approaching each student's goals and needs from a systematic but unique point of view. Through understanding the time we have to work together and the gaps in knowledge and/or issues in exam technique, we can achieve the goals set.

About Me

I'm currently in my 6th year of Medical School and have continued tutoring throughout. This has led me to focus on the development of a formal teaching methodology which I will finalise once I graduate in July 2024. With over 1700h+ and 7 years of teaching, my primary focus has been on the sciences (Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physics). I've also been working with students to support them in preparing for their entrance exams (Medicine - UCAT, BMAT, IMAT; Business - GMAT; General - 11+, 13+), as well as English and Russian.

As someone who has published a number of books to support students applying to study medicine, I have made my primary focus outside of my medical studies to be on understanding the needs of each student, whilst at the same time applying the knowledge I gained over the last years to them as an individual. Whatever learning goal you have set out for yourself, I will support you with a personalised study plan and flexible availability that goes beyond the sessions we have together :)


Tutor Experience

7 years of tutoring experience with 1700h+ given across 1:1 and group teaching format

Topic Expertise

My focus is primarily on the sciences (Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Maths) across all boards (Edexcel, AQA, iGCSE, IB) for GCSE and A Level, however I also tutor a lot of students in an academic mentoring capacity where I advise on how to optimise their learning. Additionally I prepare students for the BMAT, UKCAT, IMAT, as well as 11+ and 13+ entrance exams.

Sophia is helping me with A-level Chemistry and Biology. She structures the lessons well while simplifying harder topics by starting from a more basic level and building up. I often like to finish our lessons with practice questions which solidify my understanding. I look forward to and enjoy our lessons.

Sophia is an amazing tutor that helped me significantly in understanding my chemistry content better and improving my grades. Whenever I encounter a roadblock in my understanding, Sophia patiently explains the content to me in a way that I will understand. She always ensures that the lesson format will suit you and keep you engaged while being extremely friendly and motivating. Overall, I highly recommend Sophie as she always makes learning easy and interesting.

Sophia was a fantastic Tutor.

Miriam Parent from London 6 Jul ’21
Sophia is a real 'find'. My son is someone who sometimes struggles to understand scientific concepts but he loves the way that Sophia teaches as it makes sense to him. Sophia quickly got to grips with his strengths and weaknesses and is helping him so much. Very grateful!
