Personal Description:

I am an Imperial College BSc Biochemistry graduate with an MRes in Stem Cell Biology from UCL (finished with Distinction and awarded a Dean's List nomination). I went on to complete a second MRes in Respiratory and Cardiovascular science at Imperial College (with Distinction) and I am currently on the second year of my PhD at the National Heart and Lung institute at Imperial College.

As a current PhD student I am very enthusiastic about my field. The main reason I tutor is to get the opportunity to spread my passion to younger individuals, and help them understand key concepts, making the lesson as interesting as possible.

Tutoring Experience:

During the first two years of my undergraduate degree I was volunteering as a tutor to support younger students, by providing help with their homework, assignments, test revision and study skills. During my Masters degree I took the initiative to form a study group for postgraduate computing engineering students, to help them understand basic biological principles to support them with a Bioinformatics module.
Currently and for the past two years I have been a free-lance tutor and I have helped a number of GCSE, AS and A-level students.
Additionally, I have helped graduate and post-graduate students (BSc Biomedical Sciences, MSc Biosciences, etc) with revision, journal club presentations, assignment proof-reading and exam preparation for a number of modules including infection, immunology, cell biology, molecular biology and stem cell biology.

Tutoring Approach:

Starting from your course material, we will build up on the key aspects you were shown in class, to give you a solid background of the major biological and biochemical concepts. A major part of the first lesson will be a discussion, to allow me to understand what you need to learn. I will then try to assess your current level using a simple worksheet. We will take it from there together, but I am always open to suggestions and alterations to the lesson direction as we go. According to your feedback, I will adapt the lesson to your way of learning (whether it is by listening, solving problems, practicing past paper questions or discussing).
