PhD student in Physics and Molecular Biology at the University of Sheffield, with 3+ years of tutoring experience in Science, Maths and English.
I have more than 3 years of experience teaching Science and Maths to students of GCSE and GCSE-A level. I have taught about 20 students in 1 on 1 tutoring classes or group sessions, hence have experience with managing problems, targeting exams and improving the fundamental concepts of science/maths.
I believe in simplifying the science concepts based on everyday experiences, then building up on those basics, stressing on the kind of questions that examiners ask, what variations of the questions one can be examined on, and giving time to read/practice and come back with problems.
