Tooting Tutor

I am currently a first year medical student at St George's, University London. I completed an undergraduate degree in Neuroscience and Women's and Gender studies and have a passion for education and science! Though pursuing a seemingly exclusive scientific track now, I am interested in teaching and its importance in health education and preventative medicine. After my first degree, I carried out research in Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia, looking specifically at how combinations of mutations in protein machinery can lead to this kind of cancer. Since moving to London from Boston, I have been enjoying exploring the many parks that the city has to offer!

Tutoring Experience

I worked as volunteer coordinator for Mission Hill After School Program (MHASP) in Boston for 2 years. During my time with MHASP, I designed the semester’s curriculum for a daily, 90 minute work session, established classroom policies and discipline structure, mediated conflicts between students, and also wrote mid and end of semester progress reports.

Furthermore, I also spent a summer teaching IB chemistry and Biology as well IGSCE Chemistry and Biology which really honed in my communication and teaching skills.

Tutoring Approach

I am committed to ensuring that each student finds a method that optimizes their learning. As a result, I tend to incorporate different mediums of transmitting information and the use of drawings and videos in learning. From experience, I find that a great deal of learning occurs through practice questions. As a result, I tend to work with students to ensure that practicing questions becomes a very natural part of the learning routine.
