Oxford Biology Graduate with 2 Masters in Evolution Offering University Admissions Coaching for Biology in London and/or Online

I am a biology student currently applying for PhDs, and in the meantime interested in tutoring experience.I am looking to tutor students interested in applying for Biology or Zoology at university, especially in helping students through the Oxford admissions process (cover letter assistance and interview coaching).

After completing an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Oxford, I completed 2 Masters courses focusing on systematics, evolution and palaeontology at the Natural History Museums in London (course co-run by Imperial College) and Paris (course co-run by Sorbonne Université).
I completed my pre-university education in France through the french baccalaureate, and thus have particular experience in entering UK higher education from abroad (I am also bilingual/dual native in French and English).


As a passionate biology student I believe I have the tools necessary to help prospective students better express their potential throughout the admissions process.
As I am new to tutoring I have a keen interest in tailoring my tutoring to the student's needs and preferences, and preparing assiduously for sessions.

My university application coaching would involve:
- giving the student the tools to write an effective cover letter, and reviewing it with them in depth
- Helping students develop the right mindset and critical skills to tackle university interviews, and providing mock interviews

Romily
Maths, Chemistry and Biology for any level up to GCSE or Equivalent
I believe that it is important that each session is tailored to the individual. Sessions will begin with a brief introduction to the topic and a task which will allow me to gauge the current working level and to establish strengths and weaknesses in the area. My experience as a tutor allows me to make quick, informed decisions about how to adapt the session in order to achieve maximum progress. I always make sure that I have read and understood the relevant exam board specification to ensure that I deliver the information and skills required for exam success. I strongly feel that engagement, encouragement and enjoyment are essential for acquiring, understanding and retaining new skills and knowledge. Therefore, my sessions will be interactive and include progressive tasks allowing application and practice. I try to make my tutees comfortable in my sessions through reassurance and communication, with us both asking questions throughout the session - I am ready to explain things in different ways until it is understood!
