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

CLEP Exam Calculus, College Math Preparation with Experienced Teacher
Hi everyone! I have been teaching private courses in Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics for 9 years. It is my passion to prepare my students for the future with school and exam studies. When I won the Anatolian Teacher High School in Istanbul in 2008 and Boğaziçi University in 2012, my biggest goal was to be a reliable role model for my students in the future. I am very happy that I have now made this dream come true since the year I entered university. Until this time, I have taught private lessons at secondary, high school and university level to numerous students from Turkey and abroad. I still continue to give private lessons on the online platform and teach Physics at an International School in Istanbul where California Education Standards (Cognia) are adopted. It is my passion to prepare my students for the future with school and exam studies. I am currently teaching for SAT Exam Preparation. SAT Subject Tests includes Physics, Math, Chemistry and Biology. I can teach both IB and American Curriculum as well. I teach my lessons on Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Classroom, depending on the student' request. Inquiry Based Learning which I have adopted as a teaching method; it enables me to teach lessons based on inquiry and always keeping the student & teacher dialogue dynamic. I strive to progress depending on the age and level of the student. For this, I aim to explain myself, the way I study and understand my student's expectations and level. After the level has been determined, it is of great importance for me that the student knows the lesson plan and draft as well and adheres to the jointly agreed schedule. I share pdfs and documents that I have prepared before the class and use the books by Pearson, Serway, Nowicki, Sarquis and so on for University & Secondary School Level. For Middle School, I use HMH Science Modules etc. I do emphasize the importance on giving homework/assignment and return as giving ''feedforwards'' for my students. As someone in love with her job, it is my greatest motivation to direct the students to professions they can do with love. In this course, you will be able to learn following contents: Ch 1. Introduction to Calculus Ch 2. Basic Math Operations Ch 3. Basic Measurement in Math Ch 4. Linear Equations Overview Ch 5. Inequalities Overview Ch 6. Graphing and Factoring Quadratic Equations Overview Ch 7. Imaginary & Complex Numbers Ch 8. Exponents Ch 9. Polynomial Properties Ch 10. Rational Expressions & Practice Ch 11. Basic Functions Overview Ch 12. Understanding Exponentials & Logarithms Ch 13. Basic Mathematical Logic Ch 14. Understanding Sets Ch 15. Data Analysis in Math Ch 16. Foundations of Probability Ch 17. Overview of Financial Mathematics Ch 18. Geometry Foundations

I give private lessons or in groups of 4 in Mathematics - Analysis - Matrices - Statistics - Algebra - Geometry - Physics - Mechanics - Electricity - Chemistry - Organic Chemistry - Biology, Geology to students from primary to Terminale of French program (MLF or AEFE) or Lebanese Program SV, SG and SE or 1st academic year in the student's home or remotely by interactive board shared with the student (VERY MODERNIZED PROFESSIONAL method, MUCH BETTER THAN WEBCAM AND BETTER THAN WE ARE AT THE SAME PLACE ) which works by clicking on the link that I send by skype or zoom and which serves as a table of large spaces or pages, equipped with tools (pens of different colors, ruler, geometric tools, eraser, ..) on which we can write both, plan the assignment to be corrected, explain and save the work. The conversation is carried out by Skype or Zoom for an individual or by group of 4 students only for each virtual class. FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO WORK BY GROUP AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF EXCLUSIVE RATES. Tariffs are reduced due to the economic and financial situation in Lebanon. ATTENTION FOR GROUPS OF 4: NEVER BOOK BEFORE WRITING TO GIVE YOU CONFIRMATION BY MESSAGE. For individuals; you can book directly if you choose the individual course

Elme
International Baccalaureate Biology Standard Level (SL, IB)
I passed the IB diploma program for Biology Standard Level with full marks, I also received a 7 on my Internal Assessment (IA). I have a very good grasp on what the IB expects from it's students (all the weird and wonderful little criteria.) I have a very good grasp on Biology the subject itself, as it was one of my favorite classes and I understand the concepts on a broader and more minute scale, so I can help students to understand the topics as well as the specifics and how they all play into one another. I aim to provide students with not just the memorization of information in a somewhat robotic sense, but an actual understanding and comfortable grasp on all the topics, ideas and concepts. I can help with any homework or course work provided, including providing feedback and guidance on essays and assignments. I also like to set out extra homework (not difficult, just based on our sessions) to get back to me at the next meeting so that the student's confidence and grasp on the subjects continues to build and I can see where exactly they need assistance. NB: prior to our meetings, if possible, I would appreciate being sent whatever course work or topics the student is currently doing in class (or the syllabus, in the best case scenario) in order to best maximize my planning and ability to assist.

Hi! I am currently studying medicine at University College London (UCL) (UK), and completed the IB and IGCSE curriculum in high school. Having been through the medical school application process, I know how challenging it can be and am very eager to help anyone applying to university in medicine and/or scientific fields. I can offer personal statement advice, help with interview prep and entrance exams. In terms of science subjects, I tutor in maths, biology, chemistry, and general science for all levels (middle school- high school). I am most familiar with the IB system, but have experience teaching students from other backgrounds too (IGCSE, A-levels, MYP). Looking forward to hearing from you!

English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology (English Speaking, Writing, Prep School (BILET) Exam and Homework Help)
Hi everyone! I’m presently a student of Genetics and Bioengineering in Istanbul Bilgi University. As majority universities are leaning towards English as the primary source of instruction in Istanbul, I feel it is important to have full command over the language. I have studied English, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Psychology under the Cambridge Assessment International Education and have secured A’s and B’s in both my Ordinary and Advanced Level Exams. I had a 3.4 GPA in university. My Biology, Chemistry, Physics and BILET test preparation classes will include detailed discussions of topics as well as solving examples and queries/homework questions.
