Staffordshire based Master's graduate looking to tutor Maths, English and / or Biology

Methodology

Having achieved high grades throughout GCSE, A Level and university, I have appreciated the importance of appreciating learning objectives, mark scheme and exam format. Therefore, my tutoring is based around tailoring learning to directly complement the final assessment.

Experience

In achieving a first class undergraduate degree from University of Birmingham, I received an Outstanding Contribution award for running revision sessions for students in the year below. I am passionate about a variety of subjects and enjoy helping others learn.

Research experience

Infection, Immunity and Inflammation MRes (University of Cambridge): Three ten-week rotation projects investigating host resistance factors to tuberculosis in zebrafish (Prof Lalita Ramakrishnan), the role of PI3Kδ during listeriosis (Prof Klaus Okkenhaug) and the effect of intracellular pathogens on macrophage translation (Dr Betty Chung).

Human Biology MSci (University of Birmingham): A 12-month research project in which I characterised a monoclonal antibody specific to an epitope within the capsule of C. neoformans and wrote my first lead-author publication (Prof Robin May).

Undergraduate summer studentships (University of Birmingham): Completed during the summer of my undergraduate degree, I gained experience in both super-resolution microscopy and zebrafish infection models, which contributed to my inclusion as a co-author on a pre-print currently under review.



Extracurricular activities

Digital Champion (2017-2018): Aided the design, delivery and supervision of a course centred around developing digital skills of undergraduates (e.g the design of posters, presentations and online magazines).

Peer-assisted study sessions (PASS) (2015-2016): Working with two fellow 2nd year students, I delivered revision sessions for 1st year students, for which we were recognised with a university-wide outstanding contribution award. In my 3rd year, I became a coordinator of the programme, timetabling sessions and supporting students leading the sessions.

The Birmingham Project winning team (2014): I was a member of the winning team of an entrepreneurial group project in which we pitched the prototype of mobile phone application that we designed for an electric car rental company.
