Information about Lavinia
My name is Lavinia,
I have always been interested in science, but I would not describe myself as being a child that was`naturally gifted`in the topic.
I can attribute my academic success to a select few teachers, personal determination and consistency regarding studying.
Having once been the student that asked `why?, and just didn`t `get it`, I find my teacher-self particularly suited to the learning styles of children of all abilities.
My teaching style often involves taking the abstract and making the concept more real to students, by relating it to everyday scenarios.
I studied biomedical science in university, and also tutored university students in areas such as immunology, physiology and biochemistry.
From my experience as a secondary school science teacher, I find that many exam failures are the result of question comprehension. Many young people think science exams require fancy responses but end up missing the focal point of the question. To combat this I feel most effective approach is in a calm environment away from peer pressure and with the use of exam questions throughout each session.

Feedback For Lavinia (3)
I was wary about having a young tutor but she knows her stuff and makes it easy to understand! The confidence alone that she has instilled in my daughter is amazing. Initially only signed up for about 4 hours or so but found her so helpful, the sessions have expanded and are ongoing. Highly recommend her to anyone!
Such an amazing tutor! She`s so lovely and really knows what she`s talking about it. She`s amazing at explaining exactly what you need to know and in simple terms. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is struggling with biology!!!
Fantastic tutor who has helped me greatly, by simplifying harder concepts and organising my workload. She is approachable and able to tailor to my study needs. Thank you Lavinia
