« I have known Miss Gethmini for a very short period of time. But all I can say is she is probably the best teacher ever. Her effort in making the subject so much more interesting has never failed and her sweet personality always shines above everything. She is definitely the best you could get and no matter what she will always be there for a helping hand. She is more of a friend than a teacher and an individual you can say anything to without hesitation. Her inspiration, motivation and positive vibes have always kept me moving forward. You would never regret choosing her. »

Methodology

Personally I am a friendly and warm individual that gives students a sense of comfort to ask questions freely, clarify doubts and even request any changes to my teaching methods. I am hardworking, dedicated, empathic, kind, patient and excellent at dispute handling and with the years of teaching experience I am very thorough with the subject study material. I organize and document all my lesson plans and try my best to follow the timeline within which I complete the set goals. I have had the privilege of teaching students between the ages of 12-18 in preparing them for high school achievement tests such as the ALs and OLs and also students of ages 18-24 during my undergraduate years as peer content tutor and as a part-time lecturer. The wide range of ages of students has given me more insight to their mental and learning acumen and to understand and develop effective student specific teaching methods.

Background

I am currently a graduate student. I have completed my Masters in Molecular Life Sciences and Biology is my expertise area. I have 6 years of teaching experience where I was entrusted with the responsibility of tutoring and preparing students for the subject Biology for Edexcel Ordinary level examinations, Advanced Subsidiary level examinations and Advanced level examinations. Part-time lecturer at University College Lanka in Biology for the Monash University Foundation year students, for the Biology program affiliated to Monash University Australia. Tutor in Biology (General Biology I and General Biology II), SUNY Potsdam, USA.

I have known Miss Gethmini for a very short period of time. But all I can say is she is probably the best teacher ever. Her effort in making the subject so much more interesting has never failed and her sweet personality always shines above everything. She is definitely the best you could get and no matter what she will always be there for a helping hand. She is more of a friend than a teacher and an individual you can say anything to without hesitation. Her inspiration, motivation and positive vibes have always kept me moving forward. You would never regret choosing her.

Ms Gethmini is honestly one of the best teachers one could ask for. She shows so much enthusiasm towards teaching me that it motivates me to do my best. Ms Gethmini also brings humour to the lessons and so much joy that you can never be bored in class. She always believed in me even when I didn’t and it was Ms Gethmini that made me want to pursue a career in relations to biology. If you need a biology teacher, all I have to say is Ms Gethmini. She is simply the best and and always makes sure you understand the lesson. I couldn’t ask for a better teacher.

She is an absolutely great teacher who always teaches very actively and effectively with her unique way of teaching skills. I can guarantee that you won’t ever regret taking lessons from her. I would gladly recommend her as one of the best teachers I have ever had.

She has been my biology teacher since grade 7 to A levels. She gives excellent notes and simplifies the lesson so that it's easy to study. I have got good grades for bio because of her. She is a very friendly teacher but she is strict in getting the work done.

I went to Ms Gethmini for tuition just a month away from AS level exams (first stage of British college entrance exams). I was struggling to understand the content and she agreed to take up the challenge and tutored an entire year’s worth of content in just 1 month. Continuing my A level exams with her I eventually ended up with an A, missing an A* by just 1 mark. This was an amazing achievement for me as I am an economics student who did not have a strong background in the sciences. She is a remarkable teacher not just because she’s good at teaching but because she takes a genuine interest in her students and pushes them to achieve their best. She‘s the best!

I recommend Gethmini. She worked with me as my private tutor for two years as a biology teacher for the International Advanced Level. I was the student at her private class. As a student, I can assure you that Miss Gethmini was always cooperative, understanding and extremely knowledgeable. During her time with us, she managed to ensure that all of us worked hard and achieved our highest potential. I’ve always put a premium on her impeccable ability to precisely deliver syllabus content and Miss Gethmini never failed to deliver anything less than perfection. Miss Gethmini is a delight to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with her again.

Thanks,
Yalindi
International Advanced Level Student

Gethmini is one of the best and inspiring teachers I have ever met. She is very friendly and her way of teaching is fantastic, she can make the most boring lessons interesting. She motivates you to do better not only in subject matters but everything else. I chose to do medicine because of her.
