Information about Natasha
After completing my D.Phil from the University of Oxford, I worked for 7 years as a Senior Biologist for a small drug discovery company where I was responsible for screening new drug targets in tissue models for human disease. Over the years I`ve had so many comments from students/colleagues about my ability to break subjects down to ease understanding, and coupled with my passion for science and sharing that with others I decided to change career and become a full-time science tutor. I`ve never looked back!
My tutoring style is informal, working with each student to improve their approach to learning whilst maintaining motivation. At the end of the day, learning should be fun!
I am also a freelance examiner for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE)- examining is invaluable to my role as a science tutor and to the development of my students` abilities in preparation for their examinations. It has taught me to understand the very specific focus of each syllabus as a whole, to read for the specific aim of relevant text, and to concentrate not just on surface comprehension but to expand science beyond basic skills.
I have many hobbies but particularly enjoy outdoor pursuits including: sailing, mountaineering, climbing, mountain biking and running. Most of my free time though is spent with my wonderful husband and beautiful tots!
Availability: Tues, Weds, Thurs weekdays and evenings.
I usually charge a very small travel fee to cover the cost of fuel.
Willing to travel: 20 miles
Experience: During my time researching at Oxford, I tutored an array of students in Biochemistry, Biology, Genetics, Human Science and Medicine.
I have vast tutоring experience аt both GCSE, AS/A2 level covering all UK exam specifications, including IB.
Feedback For Natasha (7)
Natasha has helped me to improve the content of my answers to exam questions and to improve my exam technique.
Natasha has been tutoring my son in Chemistry, Physics and Biology at GCSE level for a number of months now. He has gone from finding a lot of it totally bewildering to really understanding key concepts, and perhaps more importantly, feeling much more confident about science. For a 16 year old to say that his tutor is excellent speaks volumes!
My son achieved his Astar in his Biology GCSE and we have booked Natasha to come back for A level coaching!
My son very much enjoyed his couple of AS Biology lessons with Natasha. She was enthusiastic, very conscientious, understanding and easy to talk to.
Natasha tutored me for my GCSE Science re-take and she really helped to improve my confidence and understanding of the subject, she broke down the modules easily and made it enjoyable. Natasha is highly organised and prepares the lesson and revision material very well and I might add that she has a lot of experience in her field!
Natasha turned up promptly to all lessons, was well prepared and my son felt he has benefited from the coaching for his GCSE Biology this summer. Natasha was easy to communicate with. Times for tutoring slightly restrictive as she works around her family, but she was very professional and very pleasant. My son is a hard worker looking to achieve an A star. They had not finished the sylabus at school which was worrying him. If he achieves his A star ~I will up Natasha`s rating to excellent!
Natasha has tutored my daughter for AS Biology. She has been helpful, positive, reliable and motivating - highly recommended!
