I feel confident giving lessons in biochemistry and related subjects such as biology and chemistry for GCSE, A-level and Undergraduate students looking to improve their performance and understanding of biochemistry/biology/chemistry. I will try my best to provide students with the tools to succeed, with a friendly and approachable attitude.
I am a first class Biochemistry graduate from University College London (2014). I have practical research experience in molecular biology and pharmaceutics from my degree and work experience. Subjects I studied in my degree include molecular biology, cellular biology, structural biology, physiology and microbiology.

Not only is Natalia extremely knowledgeable, but she has a passion for her specialities, and one can feel it when she passes it on. She's a lovely person, kind, who listens, and knows how to adapt based on the person she's interacting with. She cares a lot about helping people, and is the right person for you if you want to learn at your own pace but want to get all the details in.
Natalia and I met whilst working for a Swiss pharma company. I know her not only on a professional level but also as a dear friend. Natalia is an excellent scientist, she is reliable and knowledgeable in the lab as well as friendly and helpful as a person. She is experienced in a broad field of research and development and has also worked in science communication. I can really recommend Natalia as a wonderful tutor.
Natalia is enthusiastic and smart. She is a very reliable scientist who likes science for having practiced it herself in research for cancer treatment devices, as a remarkable staff member in my team.
I wish her good luck in communicating passion to her young students.
