Hello, My name is Matt. I’m in my final year of university studying Biology at the University of Oxford. I always had an interest in science and maths at school and still enjoy the subject at university. My course has a lot of variety and I can cover most areas of biology and chemistry with confidence. Having said that, I’m particularly interested in molecular biology and biochemistry and hope to start a PhD in that area next year. I started off tutoring by independently organising tutorials with GCSE and A-level students in both Biology and Chemistry. As someone who completed my A-levels quite recently, I understand the difficulties students face. My tutorials are friendly, relaxed and go at the pace of the student. If they are struggling with a topic they’ve learned about in school, we would generally have a discussion about the topic, going through it step-by-step until they feel confident explaining it.
In later tutorials, we can practice answers to exam questions and go through past papers. This helps to cement your knowledge and practicing answers that gain maximum marks. If students would like to go beyond the syllabus or cover new topics, I would be happy to accommodate that.
My lessons will be structured by allowing lots of time for the student to ask questions to help the learning process. I will also end every lesson with a useful task/question for the student to answer to help consolidate their understanding prior to the next lesson. I hope progress will become apparent, but I think regular mini tests are also important to ensure understanding and help show areas that can be improved upon. Allowing the student to go over material in their own time after the lesson I believe is key for them to develop a solid understanding of the subject.
We only take tutor applications from candidates who are studying at the UK’s leading universities. Candidates who fulfil our grade criteria then pass to the interview stage, where a member of the TiC team will personally assess them for subject knowledge, communication skills and general tutoring approach. About 1 in 10 becomes a tutor on our site.
