I like to tailor lessons to each students needs, providing notes, practise exams/questions and focusing on topics that need some extra attention! I also like to provide additional notes (alongside working with the course material) and assignments to do outside tutoring hours. I mainly teach one-to-one but am open to tutor groups.
I am a PhD graduate in Cardiovascular Biomedicine from UCL- I also have a MSc and BSc in Biomedical Science. I have 4 years of experience in tutoring Biology and Chemistry GCSE to A-level and am very familiar with UK exam boards.

Work Experience and Job History
Postdoctoral Researcher (March 2019-ongoing)
Working within the Applied Biomedical Engineering Group on wound healing for critical care medicine, specifically the isolation of platelets and production of biomaterials. Extensive soft skills in areas such as leadership, teamwork and communication have also been built through extracurricular activities and a keen interest in voluntary work, highlighted as time working as a supervisor to students.
Private Tutor (2013-2019)
Tutoring A-level Biology and Chemistry on a one-on-one basis. Lessons included covering in depth specific topics, practise questions and exam preparation.
Evaluation Exchange (2018)
The Evaluation exchange allowed the opportunity to enhance my research and evaluation skills outside of academia. The project involved collaborating with charities in London and developing strategies to make lasting changes to the charities through evaluation and analysis of organisations, as well as aiding with funding applications. The project involved working with academics outside of my research field and was supported by UCL public engagement, UCL Innovation and Enterprise and the voluntary sector organisation Aston Mansfield.
University Internship with READ International (2012-2013)
READ International is a charity that collects unused schoolbooks for schools in Tanzania. I was promoted to a Project Leader, taking over organisation of fund raising events. I had the opportunity renovate a library for the collected books, along side working with school children at secondary school level. My time at READ allowed me to gain key skills in organisation of events as well as of teams of students and professional companies. The independence and confidence I gained from organising the time in Tanzania was invaluable.
Auditing at a GP’s surgery (2010- 2012)
Auditing in a GP’s surgery was an opportunity to evaluate large quantities of patient data, as well as become competent with the practise computer system. I also presented my findings to the GP and staff, enhancing my presentation and communication skills. I also produced leaflets for patients, offering advice on lifestyle choices, based on findings from the Audits I carried out.
