Science & Maths tutor; Pharmacology PhD; Oxford graduate

I have a PhD in Pharmacology from King's College London and a first class degree from Oxford University in Biochemistry. As well as providing tutoring in chemistry, biology, physics, and maths, I can help with Oxbridge preparation, general discussion to develop a scientific mind, and advice on careers in science.

Tutoring Experience:
I am a versatile lecturer and tutor having tutored students as young as year 6 and up to postgraduate level. I have delivered lectures and tutorials on a wide range of biomedical topics at undergraduate and postgraduate level in the UK and Canada. I have also run practical science demonstrations for university students.

I am a STEM ambassador and frequently give talks in secondary schools to all age groups on careers in science. For the last two years I've been a resident scientist at a Building Bridges Event at the Science Museum, London for school children learning the art of science journalism.

I am a friendly and patient tutor. I benefitted from one-on-one tutoring at Oxford University and feel that this personalised approach can enhance learning for every student. I am ready to work with students to help them achieve their specific educational goals.

Currently I have limited availability but please get in touch as I'll try my best to fit you in.

Just what we needed!

When my elder daughter failed her Chemistry GCSE, she lost confidence in her ability and I really didn't know what to do. We were very lucky, however, to find Fiona. She is kind and calm as well as being extremely knowledgeable, a great teacher and a fantastic role model. Fiona is now providing support for my younger daughter so that she can develop her confidence in Maths. I cannot recommend Fiona highly enough.
Subject:
Chemistry (GCSE)
Outcome:
In a very short time, Fiona transformed a sad girl with a D into a very happy girl with a B in Chemistry.

Reference

Fiona has made such a difference to my children's confidence and enthusiasm for maths and science and they actually look forward to their sessions.‎

She is always on time and is flexible.

I would recommend her to others for help with maths and science GCSE and key stage 3.

I wanted to thank you for the support with tutoring for all three science GSCEs for my twin daughters. There were aspects of all sciences that they struggled to understand and the tutoring made everything clearer and gave them confidence in their exams - 3 stars and 3 As were much more than we were hoping for. Thank you for your help your practical and supportive tutoring made a significant difference in a short period of time. Lisa

Excellent tutor

I am so grateful to Fiona for her help in tutoring my daughter in maths, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics leading up to her GCSEs. Fiona was able to explain things in a way that she was able to understand. She had previously really struggled in these areas and lacked in confidence but Fiona really helped her. My daughter also really liked Fiona and was very happy to be taught by her.
Subject:
Science
Outcome:
Much improved understanding in all of these areas.
