Experienced Science Tutor

My name is Nija Nikolova and currently I am on my way to graduating with a First Class Honours Degree in Anatomy from the University of Glasgow. From September I will be studying Medicine at the same university. I have had a passion for the sciences, especially Biology and Chemistry since I was in primary school. I devote a lot of my time exploring different aspects of Biology, and although there is always more to learn, I have achieved a high level of competence in this field. Apart from my studies, I have taken part in various research and medical internships, including ones taking place in the Anatomy Department of the University of Glasgow and the Acute Stroke unit of the QEUH, which have strengthened not only my knowledge but also helped me further develop my team work, leadership and communication skills.
I am a friendly person, and have always enjoyed working with children as well as adults.
I have been tutoring Biology, Chemistry and Maths for almost two years now, and this has helped me to find interesting and easy ways of presenting and explaining these subjects. I have always enjoyed teaching others and helping them get a better understanding of these subjects, since I believe that being able to comprehend the material fully helps you realise how interesting science can be.
I have tutored children and adults at different levels and following our lessons, they have achieved excellent grades in their exams.
Currently I am offering preparation for the UKCAT as well as tuition in Biology, Chemistry, Maths.
I will consider every tutee individually, rather than apply the same approach to all because everyone has a different level of understanding of the subject and uses different methods to learn. One of the ideas in which I believe the most, is that it is extremely important for the tutee to understand the principles underlying the particular problem, rather than try to learn by heart, since this will help him/her to remember better and do well on exams. If possible, I will try and find an interactive way to present the subject (using materials other than a textbook), since in the past I have seen that this gives great results.

A wonderful teacher! Made the subject so much easier to understand

Niya was a brilliant help in my studies, her teaching helped me understand the concepts and problems much more easily than in class. I had the privilege of learning from her in other subjects (biology and chemistry) as well earlier the previous year and no matter what the topic she has always had a very thorough and well-summarised approach. She always explained things over again if needed and made it simple. Very patient and planned every lesson, so the weekly sessions were structured and organised, making for easier learning.
The help I received allowed me to boost my grades up to second in my class, and ultimately made me feel adequately prepared for my exams.

Great tutor

Nija was a great tutor. She really helped me with my Higher Human Biology. Nina took me through every concept that I found difficult until I understood. She constantly pushed me to learn in a really supportive way.
Thank you, Nija.

Chemistry Tuition by Nija N

My understanding of chemistry was quite scattered, without any real foundations. Nija's teaching style includes helping to lay a general foundation for the subject first, starting with the basics, at the very beginning, and slowly connecting the initial knowledge to other ideas that are introduced throughout the subject. Her teaching is very organized and methodical, and the homework set always tested every single little thing that was taught in the lesson, which made sure I understood the topic fully. The lessons were very helpful, and I would highly recommend Nija for chemistry if you need a good, organized tutor who understands the subject.
I had a more solid understanding of the subject after being given the lessons, and find the subject easier to understand than I did at the beginning. A good result, I think.
