My teaching approach will vary to suit you, ranging from a university lecture style approach to focused discussions of the topic. I may even set you homework! I can be very flexible. We can adjust our sessions to whatever suits you!
I am a research scientist who has a passion for teaching!
I have tutored for five years across a wide range of biological fields. I also specialize in Personal Statement writing, UCAS applications and interview preparation.
I obtained my degree in Natural Sciences after which I went on to do a research masters examining the role of non-coding RNAs in DNA replication, both at Jesus College (University of Cambridge). I am now finishing my PhD at the University of Bristol where I am attempting to produce neutrophil immune cells from stem cells isolated from the peripheral blood.
I look forward to helping you wherever I can!

Title: Ex vivo culture of neutrophils to examine neutrophil cell biology and enhance functional.
10-week rotation projects in Professor Jeremy Henley and Professor Imre
2016- 2017 Krude Laboratory, Department of Zoology, University of Cambridge
MPhil in Biological Science
A single research project aiming to identify proteins which are essential for initiating chromosome DNA replication and which interact with non-coding RNAs, therefore providing insight into the molecular mechanism by which non-coding RNAs regulate human chromosome replication.

Research Work Experience
Bart’s Cancer Institute, Queen Mary University of London
Firstly, demonstrated that high pressure liquid chromatography is an alternative method to ultracentrifugation when purifying adenoviruses.
Subsequently, alongside a senior research fellow, began determining the sites at which t-Darpp is phosphorylated as Trastuzumab resistant develops in breast cancer cell lines.
Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge
Working with a team developing a questionnaire to assess mental
wellbeing of a minority group (classified).
Wolfson Molecular Imaging Centre, University of Manchester
Shadowed a team aiming to identify novel tumour markers for ovarian cancer and myeloid leukaemia. During this time I was allocated a small project; to determine suitable antibodies for the detection of a number of known tumour markers of myeloid leukaemia.
