Personal Description:

I am a PhD student at the University of Cambridge and a scholar of Jesus College. I am part of the Balasubramanian group, Department of Chemistry, and my primary interest is in G-quadruplex nucleic acids. In 2018, I received the Roscoe Medal & gold award for presenting my work at a House of Commons poster competition (STEM for Britain). I enjoy sharing my interest in science by teaching; there are few things more pleasing to me than inspiring a student.

Outside academia, my main interest is badminton. I have been President and captain of my College club, and currently am Secretary for the University club. I am also a keen musican, holding a DipABRSM Diploma in Piano Performance and have played in the Cambridge University Music Society and was Secretary of Jesus College Music Society, as an oboist.

Tutoring Experience:

I have had around 10 pupils to date, with whom I have had good relationships. I regularly teach Cambridge's undergraduate chemistry courses as a supervisor (2-3 student tuition) and a laboratory demonstrator. I also have helped OxbridgeSciences, a tuition program focusing on university entry to Cambridge and Oxford. At school, I was an assistant in Maths Surgery, reinforcing understanding of core material. I also helped at Maths and Science Masterclasses, encouraging and challenging the brightest children in our local area.
Currently, I am also an assistant instructor in the martial art Wing Chun, as part of Cambridge Kung Fu. I have also taught beginners' piano to young children and tutored ABRSM Music Theory up to Grade 5.

Tutoring Approach:

My aim is to be as flexible as possible when tutoring, as I believe that teaching should be adapted for different learning styles and situations. The eventual results should however be similar - a strong and fundamental understanding of core concepts, the ability to apply these concepts in any capacity and the motivation & confidence to become a self-sufficient learner. Whether I achieve this by encouraging independent thinking or by developing skills in revision and exam technique is up to the student.
