About me

I am an enthusiastic biomedical scientist with wide ranging knowledge. My undergraduate degree was in biochemistry but my PhD was in pharmacology from King's College London. My scientific research has focused on arthritis and pain, and the mechanisms behind inflammation. I have extensive academic writing experience having published over 10 primary research articles and written three reviews and one book chapter on topical aspects of my research. I have also been a science editor editing bioscience and medical manuscripts written by non-native English speakers.

Tutor Experience

I am a biomedical research scientist with over 10 years experience of teaching in universities and over 5 years experience of online tutoring. I have delivered lectures and tutorials on a wide range of biomedical topics at undergraduate and postgraduate level in the UK and Canada. I have supervised BSc project students and proofread numerous PhD and MSc theses, as well as acting as an examiner in mock PhD vivas. I have helped many biomedical undergraduate and PhD students to improve their writing and critical analysis and gain top marks. Recently, I helped a biochemistry student at the University of Glasgow with learning difficulties.
I have also tutored many GCSE students in Science and Maths with the main examboards being AQA and Edexcel.
I am a friendly and patient tutor. I benefitted from one-on-one tutoring at Oxford University and feel that this personalised approach can enhance learning for every student. I am ready to work with students to help them achieve their specific educational goals.
