According to Jo “biology is life”, and not just in the literal sense! It is something she is incredibly passionate about, and loves sharing her knowledge with her tutees here at INICIO. In this blog, Amelia interviews her to find out more about this inspiring obsession :)

Amelia Bargh, one of our specialist politics mentors, studied PPE at the University of York. This degree is increasing in popularity, more and more universities are offering it, and it is becoming increasingly unclear what this holistic undergraduate degree entails. Therefore, we have asked Amelia a few questions to provide us with a unique insight into this empowering course.
Matthew had difficulty with maths throughout secondary school, but he wanted to exceed the C grade he was predicted at GCSE.
How did Matthew go on to excel in Maths?
After Matthew spent another term grappling with his motivation for maths, his mum found INICIO and sought help.
A naturally bright student, Matthew needed a tutor who he could connect with. Matthew took a shine to his new tutor Vita, who believed in him and encouraged him to grow and learn independently. His newfound motivation and bond with Vita helped him to achieve incredible results.
Matthew’s mum saw first-hand why 100% of parents say INICIO’s tutors are motivated and enthusiastic
“Because Matthew enjoyed his study at INICIO, his results skyrocketed. His grade for maths at Year 11 was an A-star. And with another three A-stars and two Bs on his report card, he has the motivation and enthusiasm to take him forward with his study at AS and A2-level.”
Hannah was really struggling with French, so much so that her last result was a D. She planned to drop French after Year 11.
How did Hannah go from failing to studying French and Mandarin at university?
After another difficult year with French, Hannah asked for help. She started tutoring sessions with Sarah, who quickly recognised that Hannah’s fear could be turned into her passion.
From warm, engaging one-to-one sessions with Sarah, Hannah gradually found her confidence. She also discovered a love of languages. Inspired by Sarah’s passion, Hannah thrived in the learning environment and began to excel – and not only in French. In addition to scoring an A in French, she also scored an A at GCSE maths after only six weeks of tutoring.
Hannah’s mum agrees with 100% of parents who say that their child enjoys their time at INICIO.
Maths and times tables unsettled Ellie. She wanted to get help but the home tutoring wasn’t working.
How a change in environment changed Ellie’s view:
Getting help from a tutor at home wasn’t working for Ellie. After her mum talked with a friend who had a daughter attending INICIO, they decided to try tutoring away from the home environment. Thanks to the calming, positive atmosphere and progressive learning environment, Ellie loves her time at INICIO.
Because her tutor nurtured her learning with genuine interest, Ellie discovered that learning the times tables can be an enjoyable, interesting and easy experience.
Ellie’s mum recommends INICIO to others, just as 98% of other parents do
“Ellie now loves learning different ways to study maths and English, including using Apple Mac computers, and regularly hears praise and encouraging words. She enjoys feeling grown-up in the relaxed, creative environment.”
