Hi there, my name is Dr Michael Grant and I'm a medical doctor who has completed the highly competitive NHS Academic Foundation Program in London in 2019. Following further clinical academic positions, I am now the Associate Medical Director of Achilles Therapeutics (a phase I biotech spun out from CRUK and the Crick, developing novel cell therapies for cancer) but still work part-time as clinical research fellow in oncology at St Bart's and The Royal Free hospitals.
Alongside my medical degree (MB BCh BAO) I also hold a Bachelors of Science (First class honours) in Molecular Medicine. I have also recently received a distinction in my PGCert in Teaching in Higher Education alongside fellow status at the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). Later this year I am due to start a Masters in Experimental Therapeutics at Oxford University.
I have an interest in tutoring those from GCSE to undergraduate level in biology, biomedical science, physiology, pharmacology, anatomy, biostatistics and medicine. I am passionate about these subjects and have multiple degrees that have required me to understand the theory and practical aspects surrounding them.
I am also happy to help those preparing to apply to medical school or to the NHS foundation program (SJT and AFP interviews), and those currently writing their thesis.
Through my 6 years of university studies and multiple national summer studentships in world-class laboratories around the UK, I have had considerable experience teaching younger students and developing teaching materials that have been endorsed by Russell Group universities.
I currently lead a student-selected module for final year medical students at Bart's and the London and am a Honorary Clinical Lecturer at Bart's Cancer Institute. I have recently completed a PGCert (with distinction) in Learning and Teaching for Higher Education at Queen Mary University of London. This qualification comes with Fellowship status of the Higher Education Academy.
I usually like to teach using a combination of powerpoint presentations, detailed notes and one-to-one tutorials. However, everyone learns differently and I'm happy to adapt to any tutee's needs.
