Biology lessons for students in the cycle, college and school of general culture
I obtained my maturity in biology and chemistry option with excellent results. My goal is therefore to teach and make people love biology even if sometimes it seems complex. We can understand everything with a little will and good explanations from a student who was in your place not so long ago!! Courage.

Mavi
IGCSE, IB MYP, and GCSE courses for all levels Math, Physics and Science
I am Mavi, a physics engineer working at an aerospace company. I have been teaching private lessons at the primary, secondary, high school, and university preparatory levels for 9 years. I teach mathematics, physics, chemistry, and science. I have a good command of the curricula of IB, IGCSE, American, Hong Kong, and international schools. Additionally, I hold the position of president at the Astronomy Society, where I foster my students' interest in astronomy and science beyond the lessons. I prepare the learning environment by incorporating experiments and exploration, moving away from rote education. I often bring experimental materials to class, aiming to make learning memorable through hands-on experiments. As an educational mentor, I approach my students as if they were my siblings, valuing creativity. I have a deep passion for mathematics, physics, and science. I am dedicated to helping students understand and learn because life encompasses both SCIENCE and ART. The more people I can inspire to know, understand, and love mathematics, physics, and chemistry, the more proud I am. Are you curious about how nature works? Let's explore together!

Maria Agustina
Biology, school support classes and exam preparation
I am a specialist in Gynecology and Obstetrics. However, my love for teaching led me to pursue a specialization in teaching. These classes are intended to help students learn Biology and resolve the different concerns, difficulties and challenges that this science implies. On the other hand, my objective is also to help and accompany the process of those aspiring to take exams.

Libby
KS3, GCSE & A-level Tuition in English Literature/Language, Biology and Geography
I’m a BSc biochemistry graduate with honours from Durham University, and currently a medical student, with the aim to go into cardiothoracic surgery. I have been tutoring for over 5 years now, and have vast experience in teaching biology, english language and literature and geography, particularly online. After gaining As and A*s in my GCSEs and A-levels, I'm confident that I can help you to do the same, whilst utilising my knowledge of various exam board curriculums and what to expect in exams. I’m an experienced, approachable tutor who tailors lessons to suit you and your learning style. I have lots of tips and tricks to offer to ensure you get the highest grades you can! Whether you're struggling with the subject at school, or just want to improve your skills and knowledge, my personalised, thorough lessons will help you to reach your goals. I make my own tailored material and have a great knowledge of exam boards to ensure the best quality teaching possible, making it specific for your specification so that you can have a brilliant understanding and do well in your exams, reaching your full potential. Sessions are extremely interactive and include topic specific PowerPoints with useful diagrams, exam style questions, quizzes and various activities to ensure understanding and an overall enjoyable experience. I have a track record of helping students improve their grades and try my hardest to make sessions as relaxed, focused and engaging as possible, whilst being extremely effective. I understand that everyone learns differently and have previously helped students go from consistent 3s/4s to achieving 7s/8s in their GCSE English exams, and am confident that anyone can do the same with the correct approach and technique. In addition, I have 3 years of experience as a student mentor, helping students to understand their individual learning styles, write personal statements, and prepare for entrance exams. I also hold an enhanced DBS certificate.

Terence
Tutoring for All Levels of High School Biology and Chemistry
Biology and chemistry are the sciences of interaction. Lots of intricate science is present everywhere be that in nature or man made. For example, cars paint is a great example of d-orbital electron transitioning colour theory, snow flakes forming is a classic example of reaction feasibility and freckling of different cost colours in cats can determine their gender. In my approach to teaching and tutoring biology and chemistry, I think it’s very important to take and use these abstract concepts and make them more tangible ideas. This I have found to help myself with learning these topics and I am confident that it is effective for other students too. I have had tutoring experience for National 5 biology, higher and advanced higher chemistry and I help teach younger classes in a botanics society.
