About Me


Hello, I'm Lara, a recent Oxford University graduate! 

I have been working as an online Chemistry and Maths A Level tutor for six years now and have helped many students build their confidence and improve their grades. I am very passionate about the subjects I teach and love working with my students.

I've always loved Chemistry and Maths, and really enjoy helping other students develop a better understanding of these subjects. I've had previous experience through peer mentoring during college, and I am also an assistant sports coach. 

My favourite part about peer tuition is when a student has a breakthrough and the subject clicks for them. I'm hoping that my enthusiasm for the topics will make tutorials interesting, as I always found that my most engaging teachers were the ones who were passionate about what they teach.

I can also offer advice for university admissions, how to make a successful Oxbridge application, taking the Oxford TSA, and generally selecting and applying to universities.

My credentials:

I graduated from Oxford University in 2021 with an integrated Masters in Chemistry, achieving an upper second class degree. I took A Levels in Chemistry, Biology, Maths and Further Maths, attaining A* grades. Whilst studying at uni I joined the online tutoring site MyTutor, and through there I've completed over 3500 lessons with over 650 5 star reviews from my students/parents.

About the lessons

A Levels and IB are a challenge, and especially so in the current climate after all the disruption to education. There are so many benefits to one-on-one support in learning, and I love to help my students develop their understanding and build their confidence whilst working towards the grades they want for university. I like to have a full understanding of the content a student needs to know before I carry out a session. I will always revise through a student's syllabus before tutorials.

I am a firm believer that the best way to learn is to talk a topic through with someone else. By having a discussion, you can really establish exactly where your weaknesses and strengths are, and personally I find it much easier to remember information that someone has explained to me, as opposed to reading it from a textbook. I also find diagrams very helpful as part of explanations. Everyone learns in different ways, and visual representation is often very effective. I also use short video's occasionally in lessons, such as demonstrating chemistry practicals, to reinforce that learning.

I am happy to run tutorials that are mainly prepared by myself before hand, or to just work on whichever topic the student wishes to on the day - it is up to you! I have lots of helpful A Level and IB resources to use for lessons, as well as access to many different past paper questions to use as practice.

I offer 1 hour lessons, although am happy to discuss different times. I am very flexible, lessons can be booked on a week by week basis as I appreciate schedules can change! Last minute bookings are fine permitted I am not already booked up for that day.

Lara is an amazing tutor. She has worked with my son for a year, supporting him with both A level Chemistry and Maths. She is organised, reliable, patient, and has a natural ability to inspire confidence in the student. Lara is fully committed to supporting the student to ensure they fully understand the topics, and works at their pace. To receive her support during a challenging year for all students, has been invaluable. My son's grades increased significantly and this has enabled him to secure a university place. She is highly recommended.
