Personal Description:

Originally from Oxford, I'm a First Class Graduate from the University of Leeds with years experience working in both the Biotech and Pharmaceutical Industries in drug discovery, oncology, ion channel pharmacology, drug metabolism and more. I have also recently completed a Masters degree in Global Health in the Netherlands, which brought me to Bangalore for a 3 month research project.

I’m personable, patient and have a knack of explaining difficult concepts in Layman’s terms. I believe that preparation is key to getting the most out of lessons and so prepare extensively for each session. My greatest asset in tuition is making lessons fun, energetic and engaging, with brief interjections into areas beyond the syllabus to incite interest and spark curiosity in even the most reluctant of students. I’m passionate about teaching and the sciences, and wholeheartedly believe that anybody can achieve the top marks with the right support and tuition.

In my free time I enjoy running, racket sports, playing in a (amateur) band and mountain climbing.

Tutoring Experience:

I began tutoring 2 years ago and have since been fortunate to work with an eclectic range of students of diverse ages, backgrounds and abilities. But my teaching experience extends back to 2011, where as I Ski instructor during my gap year I unwittingly nurtured many of the core skills to make for a good tutor. I also developed strong communication skills through my degree and working in industry where science communication is a core feature of every day. Additionally I mentored several students at University and was regularly called on by friends to explain difficult concepts and check work. I am confident my enthusiasm makes me an excellent tutor which is why I offer a 50% discount on the first session to ensure parents and tutees are happy with the standard and style of teaching before arranging further lessons.

Tutoring Approach:

A good tutor-student relationship is just as important as a good tutor, so while we identify weaker topics I initially prioritise making the student comfortable in what is often unfamiliar territory for them, and developing trust with the student. Whether working to grasp the weaker of topics or consolidating their understanding of areas recently covered in class, I think it's vital the student is confident with a topic before moving onto the next. Therefore my teaching style comprises a balance of teaching, working through example questions and setting homework so that students can independently apply what they've learnt and tackle the next topic with confidence. Gradually topics which once were daunting will become second nature and I hope that being young, friendly and enthusiastic will help students enjoy and get the most out of the sessions.
