Personal Description:

I am a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London, specialising in biofluid dynamics, which is the flow of fluids in biological systems. My main research areas are ocular biomechanics and microscale blood flow. During my undergraduate degree at King's College London, I was awarded 12 internal awards, and at the end of my MEng degree (for which I achieved an 87% average) I received the SET Best Mechanical Engineering Student Award for the British Isles. I studied for my PhD at King's College London and University College London, and received my doctorate in 2013. For this work, I won two national prizes from professional bodies: Best PhD thesis in Medical Engineering (IMechE) and Best Fluid Dynamics Research Student (ERCOFTAC) as well as being a finalist for Best Doctoral Thesis in Biomechanics (ESB). In addition to my research, I currently supervise several Master's and PhD students.

Tutoring Experience:

I lectured and gave tutorials for the 1st year undergraduate mathematics course `booster class' for mechanical engineers at University College London. I have also delivered a number of tutorials, exam revision classes and lectures in fluid dynamics, microprocessor systems for second and third year students at King's College London.
I have given private tuition in Mathematics and Fluid Dynamics to a number of engineering students at both KCL and UCL.
During my PhD, I received a Graduate Certificate in Academic Practice, a qualification similar to that taken by lecturers at KCL. Through this qualification, I am an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

During my undergraduate degree I volunteered as a widening participation ambassador, teaching mathematics and physics to year 9 and GCSE students.

In addition to my academic teaching experience, I have been teaching guitar for more than 15 years including two years as a full time peripatetic guitar teacher, teaching in numerous schools around Surrey with up to 250 students per week.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always believed that learning is a very individual, subject-specific process.
I thus focus on finding an approach that works for the individual, and thereby aim to assist in their understanding of the subject.
While this deep learning is important, I am pragmatic about passing exams and achieving good grades.
During my undergraduate degree, I refined my exam preparation approaches and achieved a minimum exam score of 77% and a maximum of 100%. Of the private students I have tutored, all have achieved their desired grades.
