Personal Description:

I am a PhD student at the University of Cambridge and a scholar of Jesus College, studying chemistry and chemical biology. I am part of the Balasubramanian group, and am interested in G-Quadruplex nucleic acids. In 2012, I was also a visiting student at ETH Zürich, in the Laboratory of Surface Science and Technology. I would very much like to share my interest in science by teaching; there are few things more pleasing to me than successfully helping a student.

Outside academia, my main interest is music. I have a DipABRSM Diploma in Piano Performance, and hold a Jesus College Instrumental Award. I am also an oboist, playing notably in our school production of "Oliver!" and in the Cambridge University Music Society, and have been Secretary of the Jesus College Music Society since 2013. I am also a keen badminton player, and in 2014 President of the college society and currently a member of the University squad.

Tutoring Experience:

I have had around 10 pupils to date, with whom I have had good relationships. I also deliver supervisions (2-3 students) for undergraduate chemistry courses and am a laboratory demonstrator. I also have helped OxbridgeSciences, a tuition program focusing on university entry to Cambridge and Oxford. Throughout my academic career, I have often informally tutored my peers. 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.
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.
