I am a University of Nottingham graduate with a passion for communicating science and a commitment to nurturing talent in the next generation of scientists. Holding a BSc (Hons) in Applied Biology and recently completed PhD in Plant Sciences, I have a strong academic background in human, animal, plant and microbial biology, as well as basics in chemistry, physics and mathematics. During my research career, over 4 years, I mentored less experienced students (to MSc level) during their research projects and have found that an enthusiastic and engaging method of teaching always delivers the best results.

I like to specifically tailor lessons and teaching style to match individual students' needs. I appreciate that people have different learning styles and ways of remembering and understanding subject matter. For example, you might find mind-mapping or diagrams more effective than simply remembering individual facts. I take the time to find out how to best help students pass their exams whilst my aim is always to help the student develop a broad understanding of the subject. I highly encourage lots of questions! Some students also prefer to learn along with a friend. If you are more comfortable learning in a small group of up to 4, I am also happy to offer group tutorials at a discounted cost per hour.

The first tutoring session is designed to assess what subjects you'd like the lessons to cover and how you like to learn. For example, we can go through the syllabus or a past exam paper step by step and decide which areas you would like help with. I appreciate that studying for and sitting exams can be stressful but they don't have to be. I can prepare lessons specifically designed for you which will break up the subject into small, manageable pieces that will keep building on your understanding until you are completely confident for your exam.

Hayley has really helped our daughter with her A level Biology. She is always well prepared for the lessons she gives and makes sure that our daughter understands everything. She has given her much more confidence in tackling Biology and she enjoys her tutorials with Hayley.
