Personal Description:

I am a 3rd year PhD student from Centre for Advanced Biomedical Imaging at University College London. My research project is to use magnetic resonance imaging to investigate the treatment effect of an anti-cancer drug.

As a positive and enthusiastic individual, I enjoy sharing and exchanging with people. Science and art are my passion.
During my A-level and undergraduate degree, I volunteered as an art and craft activity leader in a care home for people with mental disability, and as patient visitor at Bedford/University College Heart Hospital.
During my PhD, I participated in a number of public engagement events, including Natural History Museum Lates and Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition. I acquired effective communication and interpersonal skills through these experience.
Having lived in China for 12 years, I am a native Mandarin speaker and proficient in reading and writing Mandarin. I have a keen interest in linguistics and learning foreign languages.

Over the past 5 years, I have taught more than 100 clients (aged from 7 to adult working professionals) with a diverse range of backgrounds.
I want to help people to enjoy science, to understand scientific concepts and subsequently the potential application of science to real life as well as to achieve satisfying exam results.
I maintain a collaborative relationship with my clients, developing specific learning strategies with them for improved study efficiency. In addition, I encourage my clients to have a positive attitude and mentality for learning.

If you are looking for a fun and productive learning experience, feel free to drop me a line - I look forward to working with you!
