About the lesson
I've just completed a PhD in genetics and plant science, and I give top up tutoring on any aspect of molecular biology and genetics for degree level students. Biology is full of complex concepts - I ensure we can cover each topic to the appropriate depth, using real life examples of each concept and creating bespoke questions at the end of each session to test understanding. I work with set-course material and expand on this to make sure my students are set to succeed.

About Dr. Emily May
I am a freelance science communicator with a PhD in molecular genetics, specialising in plants. I have a PhD, masters, and upper first class honours degree in genetics, with hands on experience in biotechnology, botany, molecular biology. I have supervised and tutored bachelor's and master's for students 5+ years through their studies, all achieving a 2:1/merit or above.
Perfect! I had a lesson with Dr Amy online via Zoom. Despite the time difference (I live in Dubai) and being late to contact Dr Amy, she responded to me instantly. I realised that I am struggling with a transgenic plant based lab report that I did not had the chance to imagine how the laboratory worked and these transgenic plants were generated. Amy helped me with getting a sense of how these transgenic lines in Arabidopsis, potato and tomato models were made via GUS and GFP markers. She gave me clues and a well structured plan on how to construct my lab report focusing on the introduction, results and discussion. Dr Amy, provided me with a variety of online resources that helped me to identify and address the promoters that are expressed by markers (including providing helpful plants databases servers and teaching me access them). Additionally she gave me advices relating to plant science research area that helped me to shape and think deeply regarding my future. I am looking forward to have more sessions with Dr Amy as I am applying to a plant sciences based internship and hopefully she will review my application documents and helping me to prepare for my exams by explaining topics I could not understand and provide me with important exam tips.
Wish you the best Amy, thank you
- Dr. Emily May's response : Hessa was great! Super involved and interested in the work we went through, and was keen to learn more. Looking forward to working with her again :)
Perfect! Excellent tutor, she helps me to get out the struggles with the genetics problems
- Dr. Emily May's response : Frank was a great student to work with! Engaged, eager to learn more, and take his pre-existing knowledge further.

Emily has explained many biological concepts to me in detail despite myself having no Biology background, and I've always understood and followed along.
