Richmond upon Thames Tutor

I am a third year PhD Candidate in Neuroscience at the University of Cambridge. I also hold a MSc with Distinction in Neuroscience from UCL and a BSc with Distinction in Molecular Biology from Emmanuel College in in Boston, MA. My current research focuses on characterising brain networks in healthy people and how they are altered in neurological and psychiatric diseases.

Tutoring Experience

During my undergraduate degree I worked as a teaching assistant for a variety of introductory and advanced biology courses, including Introduction to Cellular and Molecular Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, Medical Neuroscience and Immunology. During my PhD I have mentored undergraduate and graduate students and have given lectures at several national and international conferences.

Tutoring Approach

My approach to tutoring is always organised around the goals of student. I believe that having a clear understanding of the goals and timeline to achieve those goals is the most effective way of helping the student learn the relevant material. I am very enthusiastic about biological sciences and believe that an understanding of the basic principles will allow students to appreciate this fascinating field.
