My tutoring approach
It is my firm belief that with the right approach, just about anyone can be taught to excel in anything. When tutoring it is key to think on one's feet and to tailor lesson preparation to the exact strengths and weaknesses of the tutee. I am committed to the success of my students and put in effort both inside, and outside of the classroom to ensure they make fast progress. Regardless of their current aptitude for a subject I am to inspire additional interest and expand understanding as much as possible.
When tutoring for Oxbridge I focus on interview technique and fostering creative responses to tough questions â€“ taken from previous subject interviews. This technique has proved successful with former students and equips candidates to tackle the high pressure inherent in the interview process.
Tutoring experience: 6+ years
Since 2007 I have tutored students of wide ranging abilities in a range of subjects. I currently provide tuition for all levels of Biology, Chemistry and Spanish speaking and literature.
I have successfully guided students through the Oxbridge application and interview process for natural sciences.

I've had her for just a few months and she has helped me A LOT throughout my GCSES I would really recommend her for science as she makes it easier for everybody to understand such a hard subject. she used a range of examples to help and sends useful homework . I would highly recommend her!
Cristina is such an amazing tutor. She is patient and friendly which creates a really comfortable environment to learn. She really takes the time to make sure you fully understand the topic and is very knowledgeable in her area. Cristina is also, very thorough in her teaching and covers all aspects of the topic, I know that if I have a lesson with her I will end the lesson completely understanding what we went through! She's supportive, and I would recommend her 100% she has been amazing in helping me!
Cristina’s guidance throughout the university application process was extremely helpful, allowing me to score in the top 10% for the BMAT and UKCAT and resulted in several offers for Medicine! My Personal Statement and interview technique improved drastically thanks to her personalised advice. She also increased my confidence which helped me to stay relaxed during my interviews and show my best. I could not have asked for a better tutor :)
Great tutor!! I was really struggling with my Biology and Chemistry A Levels, only just achieving a B and a C in these but thanks to Cristina’s tutoring I ended up with two A*s in my exams! She is very patient and enthusiastic which really helped me feel comfortable in class. I can not recommend her enough!
