Information about Megan
Hi! My name is Megan and I am a Biology graduate from Queen Mary University of London, currently employed within the Pharmaceutical Industry.
I am a Biology Tutor based in Essex specialising in the OCR Biology A-level course. I found that during school I was often left with unanswered questions and would go away to further develop my own knowledge. My aim is to provide students with extra support to build their confidence and comfort in the learning process.
I would like to share my own experiences with the ultimate goal of supporting students to achieve their best grade possible!
Availability: Weekday afternoon/evenings after 3:30 (can be flexible) and weekends.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: In order to understand the core material my sessions are tailored around each students learning style, guided by their personal goals. Throughout the sessions we will relate our knowledge back to examination technique as this is essential for a strong grade! For example understanding exactly what the questions are asking and what the examiner is looking to achieve full marks.
Everyones learning is different and whilst I believe in teaching only from the syllabus I am able to answer more in depth questions students might have to reinforce their learning. I am also able to provide additional support in Chemistry and Math having also studied both at A-Level.
I have always been very thorough with my work which means I have an extensive amount of teaching material including degree level text books, own personal notes, posters, flashcards and graded past-papers that I am able to provide students with.
I use to hate waiting till my next lesson to find out answers to my questions so I also make myself available to my students via email/phone for those questions that simply cannot wait!
If you would like to find out more about me please feel free to contact me directly for a chat!
Feedback For Megan (1)
Megan tutors my daughter in A Level OCR Biology & says: "she is great at helping me understand the course material. She sticks to the course specification so isn`t adding unnecessary detail. I know everything I need to answer questions. Of course, she will elaborate if I ask & it helps my understanding. I like the whiteboard she uses to go over diagrams - there are lots of these to understand & link together. I don`t make notes in our lessons but concentrate on listening & learning. Megan is happy to send me her notes by email so I have a record to refer back to. I would highly recommend Megan to other OCR A Level Biology students!"
