My name is Jemma and I am in my fourth year of Medicine at King`s College London. Previously I intercalated at Kings College London completing a BSc in Psychology with First Class Honours.
I`m a friendly, reliable and enthusiastic individual who`s keen to share my passion for Science with others. I try to make tutoring as interactive and as enjoyable as I can - as I personally found that teachers who utilised different approaches to teaching in addition to traditional classroom learning, were the most effective and helpful.
Previously I attended Pate`s Grammar School in Cheltenham, I can relate to students and can give advice where appropriate from my own experiences. I understand that at times subject content, the workload and time management of studies can feel overwhelming! However, a bit of extra time each week working on tricky topics and answering questions can minimise homework/exam stress.
A level - AAB Biology, Chemistry, Latin
AS level - AAAA Biology, Chemistry, Latin, Physics
GCSE - 8 A*`s, 2 A`s
I am also first aid trained and have an enhanced DBS check.
Additionally, I can offer personal statement advice for UCAS as well as proof reading services.
Availability: I`m available weekdays and weekends.
I can tutor as many times as is required a week, I live in Waterloo so am able to travel to meet students either at their home in Zone 1/2 or nearby libraries/public places.
**Apologies to any parents in the Hertfordshire area who have contacted me as I have recently moved to Central London.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: Previously, I mentored a group of GCSE students in Chemistry through a scheme at my school. We met weekly and went over parts of the syllabus that they had been taught that week but with an emphasis on specific topics that were not as well understood. In addition to this, the students knew that they could always ask for help outside of mentoring sessions if they were confused. This really helped me to develop my relationships with the students so that they felt comfortable enough to ask me to go over things as many times as necessary. I have tutored students at GCSE and A level in both Biology and Chemistry, as well as Science at KS2 and KS3. Contact this Tutor
Whilst at University I have obtained Sports Colours and am the President of KCL Reproductive Health Society. I have also been an active member of Save A Babys Life Scheme teaching paediatric first aid in the community. I have volunteered as a Leader at various `Beaver` Scout groups for boys and girls aged 5-8 years old. This has helped me to continue to develop my communication skills with children, parents and my peers.
