My tutoring approach

At the start of the tutoring process, I ascertain where the student is struggling, what aspects they find most difficult and assess how they learn. This then allows me to tailor the tutoring sessions to each individual. I work hard to make the topics we cover enjoyable and memorable by using analogies to the students everyday life, and have found this works very well. I am a naturally friendly person and like to make a more relaxed atmosphere for the tutoring session so that the students feel comfortable asking and answering questions whenever they need to.

Professional experience

Tutoring experience: 3+ years

I have been tutoring since April 2011 and have had brilliant success in helping many students achieve higher than their predicted grades. I am currently in my final year of my PhD in molecular biology, where I also teach undergraduate students topics related to their course as well as exam techniques and study skills (which they find incredibly useful!)

I used to work in a school during the summer holidays helping teachers prepare for lessons and helping out in the office, so I am very aware of the curriculum and keep up to date with any changes that occur.


  • Currently in fourth and final year of a PhD in Molecular Biology
  • 1st Class Honours degree in Molecular Biology
