Personal Description:

I hold a Master's in Environmental Technology from Imperial College London, where I did my thesis research on the topic of Science Education. I have previously worked at University College London, doing Biophysics research. I hold a first-class honours degree in Cellular and Molecular Biochemistry from the University of East Anglia and I have previously studied Psychology and Biology in the USA. I have worked as a mentor to first-year university students, providing academic and personal support. I am also mum to a 10-year old boy.

Tutoring Experience:

** M.Sc. thesis on science education
** Teacher associate at a high school
** Science and Maths tutor at GCSE and A-level (self-employed) for five years, with a proven track record of helping students achieve their desired results
** Academic support to university students

Tutoring Approach:

If you don't understand the basics, you will have a difficult time trying to move on. This is why I make sure that my students progress logically through the material. I understand the process of learning and I encourage students to find their own answers, not merely memorizing but actually understanding the subject matter. I offer advice on study strategies and techniques alongside the subject tutoring. I provide coaching on exam techniques as necessary. As different people learn differently, I do my best to adapt my approach in a way that makes science and maths accessible to the learner.

_PLEASE NOTE_ There is a minimum charge for visits to the student, according to distance and duration of the lesson.
