I encourage students to take responsibility for their learning and prioritise a strong conceptual understanding of the subject. Through self-directed learning and problem solving exercises, students develop intuition about a topic, which I then test and strengthen through discussion. I will provide students with a variety of resources including websites, textbooks and videos to develop their understanding, along with testing materials and problem sets to apply their knowledge.
I am a second year medical student at University College London and biomedical science graduate, having obtained first class honours in my BSc. I am passionate about scientific and medical research, learning and teaching. My first priority is always to improve my knowledge and skills, and teaching enables me to do this while sharing my expertise with others. I have previously worked as a freelance tutor teaching GCSE science and A level biology and chemistry.

I am currently a first year medical student at UCL, having previously obtained a BSc in Biomedical Science. Human physiology has always fascinated me, with neuroscience being of particular interest. I endeavour to further my knowledge at every opportunity, having participated in research concerning the molecular basis of multiple sclerosis and written an extended dissertation on the mechanisms of pathological chronic pain while in sixth form.
Working hard and remaining active in the university community has demanded strong organisation and time-management skills. I was previously a committee member for St George’s Clinical Neuroscience Society, helping to organise events featuring leading experts in neurology.
Last year I was a third year representative for my cohort and the captain of St George’s Football Club’s 2nd XI. I have worked in a team for many years as a passionate football player and musician, and I thrive when given the opportunity to collaborate. I am committed in all that I do, and the desire to learn, to work with and to care for others motivates me to succeed.
