Medical student with a first class biomedical sciences degree from Durham University, offering biology tuition in the West Midlands

Methodology

I am a 25-year-old medical student at Hull York Medical School, with a first class biomedical sciences degree from Durham University. I am currently offering biology tuition up to GCSE and A-Level standard over the summer. In my lessons, I aim to utilise my patient and enthusiastic teaching approach in order to boost understanding, enjoyment, and importantly, exam success. Having experienced this science throughout my academic career, I understand that grasping certain concepts can be challenging, so I am more than happy to help!

I like to plan each lesson around specific topics in the specification, for example one GCSE biology lesson may focus on homeostasis, and one A-Level lesson may be more geared towards genetic technologies. This ensures that I can track the progress of a student.

The lesson will begin with discussing the strengths and weaknesses experienced with the specific topic, and then we will aim to improve understanding throughout.

In my experience, I believe that exam practice is the best way to succeed with GCSEs and A-levels. Therefore, my teaching approach will incorporate the use of past exam papers, so that students can almost predict what marking points will be in the mark scheme when they come across particular questions.

I am very happy to alter my teaching approach to fit the needs of the student, as I understand that everyone learns differently!

Experience

Since May 2018, I have accumulated several hundred hours of tutoring experience. This has all been thoroughly enjoyable, and has included working with students such as:

- Benjamin, a pupil who has just finished his GCSEs. At the end of each session, we examine the AQA specifications for both subjects, and Ben points out any areas he wishes to improve upon. For example, sometimes he may wish to work on infection and response, and another time we may choose to look at photosynthesis. In the following session, we will work through the exam questions associated with these topics, so that Ben can become more and more accustomed to predicting what exact marking points will be in the mark scheme.

- Daniel, who has just completed his biology A-Level exams. The focus during these sessions was on Paper 3 of the AQA Biology A-Level exam, in particular the essay question. When faced with a relatively broad exam question such as 'Discuss the importance of diffusion in living organisms', Daniel was able to ascertain the importance of taking a step back and trying to look at which aspects of the specification could be worked into his answer, rather than focusing too much on one particular area. We were then able to improve his ability to go beyond the specification, and think about which pieces of Daniel's further reading could be incorporated into his answers.

As a relatively young tutor, this information from GCSE and A-Level is very fresh in my mind, and I have been able to expand on this knowledge whilst at university, thus I feel confident and assured that I can improve understanding and exam grades.

Employment history:

Customer Services Advisor, Economy Energy 2017 – 2018

This role entailed resolving customer queries via phone and email on a day-to-day basis. This often involved liaising with internal departments and partner companies, such as G4S and National Grid, to ensure that all queries were dealt with in a polite and timely manner. I believe that this has enhanced my verbal communication skills, a vital skill for any tutoring work.

James's response

Hussaina is a very bright student who shows a lot of promise for the remainder of her undergraduate degree, and her confidence with microbiology certainly progressed during our sessions. As well as showing great endeavour to succeed, Hussaina is very polite and friendly. Thank you very much, Hussaina!
