I have been teaching Biology for many years from KS3 to A level and am also experienced in helping students apply to Medical School and for Veterinary Science. Whilst teaching I have developed many resources to help students learn using my own website My students describe me as a kind and helpful teacher whose positive attitude has increased their confidence.
I also have experience in teaching students who have English as a second language, and students with a learning difficulty such as dyslexia. I use a variety of interactive methods to help students to learn and will work with them to find the best way for them to improve their understanding.


Amy was very friendly and I found our lessons extremely helpful. She was happy to cover any topics that I asked for help with, as many times as I needed and she also gave me really useful tips for understanding the exam technique better. Amy’s lessons helped me to achieve a better result in my alevel exams!

Amy Chestnutt tutored my son in Biology A-Level. She helped him achieve a Grade C, without her tuition this would have been lower. My son found Amy to be an excellent tutor and we would highly recommend.

Amy taught my daughter Biology for 3 years up to GCSE.  She really brought the subject to life, taking her out into nature and bringing experiments home.  She has a lovely warm style and adapts to each child's learning style.  We cannot recommend her enough!

Thank you for being such a great tutor to our son and daughter over the years.  It has been a pleasure to have received lessons from you, they've really appreciated and enjoyed all the help you've given. 

I started with Amy after my first mock exams when we realised biology was definitely not just about the content. She has helped me so much in understanding what exam questions actually want from you whilst making sure I understood all the content. I achieved an A and without Amy’s help this would not have been possible.
