Information about Zsofia
I am currently completing Bachelor`s degree programmes in Biochemistry (University College London) and Mathematics (University of Szeged).
Having been working as a private academic tutor in the subjects of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology since the beginning of my A Level studies, I have a vast amount of experience in analysing learning styles and identifying deficiencies as well as devising procedures to improve problematic academic attitudes in order to achieve a significant enhancement in scholastic performance.
In my opinion, it is of paramount importance to methodically dissect complex concepts and thus bridge the comprehensional interstices between abstract scientific ideas and concrete laboratory experiments as part of the process.
Depending on whether a student is a visual, audial or tactile learner (or any combination of these types), I often employ interactive software packages (e.g. the integrated Algebra, Geometry, Calculus & Statistics application bundle GeoGebra for Mathematics and Physics or the molecule visualisation tool Avogadro for Chemistry and Biology), digital optical microscopes, ball-and-stick models and various other pieces of equipment in order to facilitate apprehension and aid memory retention via sensory engagement.
I am intimately familiar with the general as well as subject-specific requirements of all major Examination Boards in the United Kingdom, including AQA, Pearson: Edexcel and Cambridge Assessment: OCR, CAIE, CAAT & CAE.
Please find below the list* of courses in whose specification I am substantially well-versed:

Experience: Primary school pupils whom I tutored in Mathematics have improved by two grades on average, while many of my secondary school biology tutees have successfully participated in academic competitions at levels ranging from regional to international.
In addition to this, all sixth form students under my tuition have been offered places at such prestigious (principally Russell Group) institutions of higher education as Kings College London, Queen Mary University of London, Royal Holloway University of London, University College London, the University of Edinburgh or the University of Warwick and/or received invitations to attend an interview at either the University of Oxford or Cambridge.
As a UCAS Application tutor, I have assisted 80+ students in composing their Personal Statements over the past 4 years.
Feedback For Zsofia (11)
Since my time studying and working with Zsofia not only has my results improved but also my confidence in my approach towards the tests. I had asked if she could help me prepare for AOSB`s psychometric testing and despite this not being her field, she took the challenge and helped me navigate through the areas that I needed the most help on, mainly Maths. I would highly recommend Zsofia for anyone who is looking to prepare for the UKCAT or any maths examinations as she is great! Not only is she very smart at helping you improve your areas of weakness but she is a personable positive person who really cares about helping you achieve your goals, whatever they may be!
Zsofia is great. From the initial session she worked hard to to ensure my daughter covered her areas of weakness. She has a great approach and gets the most out of each session. I will continue to use her for revision sessions as she has made so much of a difference to my daughters learning journey.
Very reliable professional and considerate tutor. My daughter is enjoying the lessons and feels she is gaining the support she needs from her lessons.
Great experience with this tutor. Always prepared.
Zsofia is a dedicated tutor that is very passionate about her subjects. For the past year and a bit, she has helped me with my A level chemistry, UCAT and BMAT. She is very organised and always comes prepared for the lessons. She makes the lessons engaging by teaching me around the subject and beyond the curriculum which not only aids my understanding, but also broadens my knowledge and excites my fascination. I am very thankful for having Zsofia as my tutor as I have improved a lot with chemistry and she has helped me develop various skills and techniques needed for my medical admissions tests. Zsofia is encouraging, patient, very knowledgeable, passionate and the list goes on!
Miss Zsofia is an excellent Tutor.She is teaching my daughter A level chemistry.She is very knowledgeable on the subject. So far 2 sessions and my daughter is enjoying the tuition.She comes on time and prepared.I am very pleased and I highly recommend this Tutor.
Zsophia tutoring 2 students:
A level Maths & Physics sitting 2020 Zsophia comes on time and prepared. She is very knowledgeable on both subjects and utilises supplementary external material to aid understanding. Homework is provided and a detailed explanation provided to me on what was covered and what is expected for the next session. If there any elements of under performance Zsophia ensures that I am well aware, which gives the opportunity to intercede and get my child on track. So far there has been a definite improvement in work ethic and commitment I am yet to see test results that can reflect Zsophia involvement. However I am confident that we will see an improvement due to the confidence my child has shown towards these subjects. With Zsophias support we looking forward to an A in both subjects in 2020.
Maths Key Stage 3 - GSCE this is a very challenging subject for my child. Zsophia is comes prepared, gives homework and will provide alternative ways of learning. This is very useful for example to help understand transformation she advised to purchase dice to help improve understanding l. This was helpful. I have noticed a gradual improvement this can be attributed to Zsophias input.
In summary, I would recommend Zsophia as a solid tutor for any parent who is looking for a solid tutor with excellent understanding to support there child.
She is an outstanding tutor, with just couple of lesson we already covered quite a lot of topics from my syllabus. I would recommend it to anyone. I`m currently studying for my A-levels for chemistry and she keeps on giving me work which allows me to review my knowledge from my previous year and which also keeps challenging my-self. She is understanding, patient and has stamina. She will go with the pace that you are most comfortable with, and is willing to explain in different ways until you understand.
Students were really happy and felt as though Zsofia had a significant impact on their learning.
Zsofia has tutored my son for six sessions so far, and already his teacher has noticed a big improvement.
Hes now more confident and enthusiastic in maths lessons. Zsofia is also very friendly, patient and knowledgable - highly recommended!
Zsofia is very dedicated, very helpful and passionate about what she doing, from the first session my daughter feels she has learnt more, and is enjoying her studies also.
We highly recommend Zsofia as a tutor.
