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.

Pharmacology And Pharmacy job with Richa :
Occasional - Hi, I'm currently a 4th-year MPharm student, as part of our final year, we had to write a 5000-word essay on an independent lab project (which was 10 weeks long). Mine was based on screening four novel formulations to investigate their ability as a potential mucolytic agent for the GI tract in comparison to widely used N-acetylcysteine. This was carried out by employing a novel mucus model, and their ability to break down the mucus layer to enhance the diffusion of fluorophore-labeled molecules ( example Lucifer yellow) across the mucus layer. The results were assessed by looking at fluorophore intensities (a.u) measured using Gemini Spectramax fluorescence plate reader to determine their mucolytic activity. The four formulations were developed by an independent company hence was confidential information, so I was not able to discuss the extent of it. I was hoping to get my work checked, so I could really improve on it. My DEADLINE is this friday (10/01/20) so I was hoping to get feedback by Thursday evening at the latest. This dissertation is worth 25% of my whole degree so I really want to do the best of my ability, lab is not my strength so I struggled quite a bit analyzing my results. So, if you have experience with marking disseratation, please do contact me.
Thanks and Regards. Richa

Having worked as a tutor over the last several years I understand the structure of the main exam boards, the problems that students face and the common topic areas where students lose marks. With regards to the lessons I firstly prefer to identify the students area of difficulty then build a structured plan. In terms of exam technique I have an understanding of the core topics which appear and core terminology that examiners are looking for.Furthermore I have supported a vast range of students with different learning abilities. Having taught a wide range of students I have been successful in getting students to study medicine, supporting work experience and have provided invaluable advice on pursing healthcare careers. I can support students across any time zone.

Ramsay's last completed Pharmacology And Pharmacy job with Amir: 1-2 hrs/week - I was hoping to get another opinion on my essays.
I have been a tutor throughout my PhD and I found that it is my patience and willingness to put in the extra hours with students which makes a difference. Often it is something simple that is tripping them up and they need someone to give them confidence and make them feel comfortable to ask questions. There is a lot of pressure in the lecture theatre and the classroom. I like to take that away and give them their own space to think things through.
