I am a passionate biologist, currently in the final stages of completing my PhD in Developmental Neurobiology at King's College London, and am enthusiastic about my topic and inspiring interest in biology!


I have a large amount of experience, having provided tutoring in biology and psychology from GCSE to degree level for 4 years, while also running tutorials and workshops with biomedical science, medicine and dentistry students as part of their taught degrees. I have also been mentoring A-Level students from disadvantaged backgrounds with their university applications and personal statements for 3 years.


I work with students of all abilities and my enthusiasm for science and approachable nature mean that I am able to put students at ease and quickly identify where they need help the most. I can help to break down complex topics and develop strong exam technique which allows students to feel confident in their knowledge and abilities.

About my sessions

I strongly believe that all students learn differently, and so my lessons can vary slightly from student to student as I adapt to individual needs. In general, however, I like to identify where students are strong and where they need help in the first session, by going into a few previously agreed topics and talking to them about where they are at and what they would like to achieve. From there on I agree lesson topics together with the student and all lesson plans are fully prepared in advan...

I strongly believe that all students learn differently, and so my lessons can vary slightly from student to student as I adapt to individual needs. In general, however, I like to identify where students are strong and where they need help in the first session, by going into a few previously agreed topics and talking to them about where they are at and what they would like to achieve. From there on I agree lesson topics together with the student and all lesson plans are fully prepared in advance. In general my lessons will usually contain a taught component with a strong emphasis on practise questions. Practise questions are a great way of assessing whether topics have been fully understood, are an essential way of developing good exam technique and also help to remove fear of previously dreaded topics. Students often overlook their particular strengths and I also help to build confidence with regards to academic work.


I also provide mentoring and help with personal statements and preparation for university applications. Over the years I have developed a strong sense for what it is that university admissions tutors are looking for and can help students distil their passion, interest and academic abilities into a strong application.

Very good, she explained things in a clear manner and if anything was misunderstood she encourages you to understand it in an easier way. Also provided a lot of help, e.g: past paper questions.
