My path to where I am now (doing a PhD in neuroscience) has been very scattered: I started studying psychology and gradually build my way up to this totally different discipline. And overall, this is how my life is: trying everything until I find what my true calling is.
I have recently opened a school of Neuroscience for high-schoolers, which was a massive success, and attracted an international audience as well as media attention.
I am very open myself and I believe in openness and honesty with my tutees, as well as having fun!
Oh, and I bake (not very good, but you try till you succeed!) :)
I have over 6 years of tutoring experience, both online and offline, and I absolutely LOVE teaching. Nothing gives more joy than being able to share your knowledge and allow others to reach their true potential!
I am a neuroscientist and psychologist by training. The nature of my professional qualification allows for my broad knowledge of natural science, psychology, neurobiology, research methods, and academic writing. Additionally, my PhD at the moment deals with how our brain integrates senses when we see products and labels, so I also have avenues of knowledge and expertise in Marketing and product design.
I have tutored psychology, neuroscience (cognitive, behavioral, neuropsychology), research methods (design, acquisition, analysis, understanding) and academic writing (being able to put all of the above into the high standard writing required from the academic community).
As an Oxford graduate, I can also consult on Oxbridge applications and help students successfully entered their Oxford University career with my help.
