Information about Ka Yun Josephine

I am half Chinese, half Thai. I grew up from a mixed-cultural background, having lived in Hong Kong, Singapore, and currently London.

I am familiar with the IGCSE, IB and A-level system as I have been teaching students in London over the last 7 years. Having gone through the GCSE and IB system myself, I offer students specialised support in the following subjects:

IGCSE and GCSE- Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Math (Edexcel, AQA, OCR, CIE and WJEC)
IB- Biology, Chemistry (Standard or Higher)
A level- Biology (Edexcel, AQA, OCR, CIE)

I am a good listener, and a patient tutor. I always seek to build a trusting relationship with the tutees, whose learning progress and comfort is a top priority.

My lesson structure is adaptable and typically includes:

1) Specific topic review in line with the syllabus
2) Revision schedule planning
3) Guidance in revision note making
4) Past exam paper practices
5) Exam techniques
6) Homework assistance

Aside from academics and tuition, I am also a freelance artist, specialised in oil painting, charcoal sketches and watercolours.
