Biochemistry student at Imperial College with 4+ years exp

For that bit of extra practice, studying tips and techniques, and developing the inspiration and confidence to succeed!

I'm a British/Spanish Biochemistry student at Imperial College London. I'm currently in my final year of my Bachelors degree, about to begin a 4-year Master's and PhD program. I grew up moving around Europe, picking up different cultures and languages before moving to London from The Hague, The Netherlands.

I speak English, Spanish, French and Dutch, and I'm passionate about science. With over four years of experience in tutoring at a private school as well as privately at homes, I'm also dedicated, professional and approachable. In addition to tutoring, I have experience working in labs at Imperial College London and Rajavej Hospital.

I finished top of my year at school, having studied the equivalent of 7 A-levels. These Advanced Placement (AP) courses included: Biology, Chemistry, Calculus, Statistics, English Literature and Spanish Language.

SPANISH TUITION FOR MY DAUGHTER

Thomas provided Spanish tuition for my daughter Alona, for a period of some months during winter 2012. She started the spanish class 2 months after the class already started and she needed to catch up with her class.
Thomas was an excellent teacher, He adopted a patient and calm style during their individual lessons. He was friendly and excited about teaching. He is really the nicest individual and my daughter enjoyed her lessons with him.
I highly recommend him to anyone wishing a great tutor.

Thomas Davis Diaz

A dual citizen of the United Kingdom and Spain, Thomas Davis Diaz looks like a Spaniard, but still retains much of his accent and perspective from his youth in Scotland. Thomas is focused, motivated, and creative. He sees connections between concepts and helps guide others to greater success. He thinks and communicates clearly, both verbally and in writing. In addition to his rigorous academics, he spent his spare time assisting the science department and tutoring. Outside of school, he enjoys playing tennis and piano. Thomas is a solid, able, and brilliant student. I have no difficulty supporting him as a tutor without any hesitation.

Review of Thomas Davis

Thomas was an excellent Chemistry student at our international school, American School of The Hague. I taught Thomas for two years. He is bright, motivated, empathetic, and approaches topics with interest and dedication. I have every confidence he would be an excellent tutor as he positive, friendly and engaging. He is able to articulate his knowledge and his calm, friendly manner would engage his perhaps nervous tutees and reassure them.
Subject:
Chemistry (IB)
Outcome:
Very successful earning excellent grades for two years.

I use tutorfair regularly and don't hand out references lightly. I would have no hesitation in hiring Thomas to teach GCSE biology. He did an excellent job tutoring my daughter who needed to brush up on her Biology knowledge and improve the way she answers exam questions and organizes her notes. As a bio -chem student at Imperial, he is comfortably over-qualified to teach biology at GCSE level, which is what you want to make the explanations crystal clear and the delivery assured. My daughter also enjoyed his teaching style and his personality.
Subject:
Biology
Outcome:
A more confident student in Biology

Highly recommended

Thomas is working with our son on Chemistry and Spanish running up to IGCSE exams next May.
Our son finds the sessions extremely useful and there is no doubt they have had a very positive outcome on his performance.
He teaches him well with a great sense of humour.

Thomas is well prepared and always leaves him with goals to achieve for the next session.
Chemistry has always been a dreaded subject to him, but Thomas was able to motivate him sufficiently to enable him to turn it around in a short time. He now has confidence and even enjoys it!
From a parents view point, we find Thomas pleasant, approachable and very reliable.Would highly recommend him.
