Meet Nicky

I am a very approachable, friendly, enthusiastic tutor with a wealth of knowledge regarding examination technique. As a specialist A-level Biology tutor I know the syllabi inside out. I have the ability to simplify all theory ensuring my tutees build on their basic knowledge and then secure full understanding. I endeavour to ensure all theory is grounded before applying the knowledge to examination style questions. Question packs for all AS and A2 topics which will be provided along with mark schemes when you sign up for tuition.

When I’m not tutoring, I love spending time with my husband and 8 year old son. I am very sporty and a day cannot pass without exercise. I love to snowboard, ski, play squash and enjoy time in the outdoors!
