My story 


Hey, my name is Val and I am the person behind Tutoring & Beyond. My educational background is in Life Sciences (3As at A-levels, 1st Class Biochemistry Bachelor’s, a Master’s in Translational Neuroscience and Academic Research at Barts Medical School).


I am passionate about changing education to suit the modern world. In the past I have worked on building an education-focused business, partnering with experts including  from Oxford University to master modern pedagogy and the ‘science’ of learning. I apply these concepts in my tutoring practice, tailoring my approach based on each student’s individual needs. 


I believe that textbook-focused academic excellence is only a part of the picture and success inside and outside of the examination room requires a broader range of skills. Ability to practice self-leadership, cope with stress, adopt a lifelong learner attitude, ask the right questions and solve complex problems confidently are some of the competencies necessary for sustained achievement. I will help develop these skills during our tutoring sessions to build the student’s confidence and foster natural curiosity.
