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.
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.
