I am a doctor with a passion for teaching and for understanding the human body and biology more generally. I spent 9 years after school at University exploring biological science and medicine to gain a greater understanding of how we work!


I remember studying for my biology A-levels like it was yesterday. I can also remember the frustration associated with trying to get my head around some complex material and how annoying it was when I thought I understood it only to be let down by 'poor exam technique'. It wasn't until the end of my A-level that I learnt how little changes can make a big difference to performance levels. Although I wasn't taking a linear syllabus, I decided to resit all of my modules and achieved one of the highest grades in my school! I even won an award from my biology teacher for perseverance! These 'strategies' were developed further over the next 9 years of University where I studied human biology in more detail in both my biology and medical degrees. Now, 10 years on from my A-levels, I believe I am in a strong position to help you fulfill your potential in biology.

I'll plan much of my teaching around the specific information on their websites to ensure we stick closely to the requirements of your course.


We will concentrate on understanding and then learning the various topics in biology before practicing exam technique, using every official exam paper available to understand and learn the key words which each answer needs and how to best structure your answers.


Understanding > knowledge > exam technique. I believe this will be the recipe for success in GCSEs, A-levels and beyond at University.
