Stem cell and immunology PhD final year student offering biology tutoring and help with undergraduate degree applications/interviews

Methodology

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!

Experience

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!
