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.
I am an enthusiastic and energetic individual who is both self-motivated and proactive. An excellent communicator at all levels internal & external, can be relied on to work well both as part of a team and individually. Thrives on a challenge and have delivered my best results when faced with pressing targets.
I hold a Bachelors degree from queen Margaret University in pharmacology, a MSc in Cancer Therapeutics from Barts and the London School of Medicine and I currently finishing my PhD from Barts Cancer Institute. I have a vast experience of teaching at all levels and currently teach two days a week.
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.
I have been tutoring in the UK for over 20 years.
In the last five years my success rate with my students has been of a very high achievement: for 2018/19 for example my A-level students' results were 8 A*'s and 2 A. Three of my students gained entry to Oxford and Cambridge: one to study medicine and two to study chemistry.
I have tutored successfully pharmacy students in their Foundation Year of study and for two years I was a tutor at Birkbeck College (University of London) where I was in charge of the Foundation Course for medical and pharmacy students.
I have a great deal of experience in not only tutoring students for medical programmes , but for pharmacy, vet and other chemistry related courses.
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.

I have 4 years of tutoring experience of undergraduate and postgraduate University students. I have helped students with Analytical Chemistry, Chemistry, Pharmacology and Therapeutics, Biochemistry, Cell Biology and Immunology. These students were studying Pharmacology, Medicine, or some other related course. I started teaching students from 2011 during my BSc Honours degree. I have helped students from various Universities in the UK and around the world. This included guiding students on how to write laboratory reports, projects and understanding teaching materials according to their University requirements.
