About me

Hi! I'm a second year Dental student. I've always loved science and it fascinates me learning how everything works and it's great to look beyond biology and chemistry as subjects you need a grade in but how that knowledge can help you e.g. biology in the anatomy of the bod and physiology of systems. And chemistry in how drugs can have their effect on the body.

Exams are hard and I can remember being stressed out over xylem, chemistry calculations but I came through it and wa...

Hi! I'm a second year Dental student. I've always loved science and it fascinates me learning how everything works and it's great to look beyond biology and chemistry as subjects you need a grade in but how that knowledge can help you e.g. biology in the anatomy of the bod and physiology of systems. And chemistry in how drugs can have their effect on the body.

Exams are hard and I can remember being stressed out over xylem, chemistry calculations but I came through it and want to help you be where you want to be.

After personal statement drafts, UKCAT and interviews, I received offers from Dental schools at Queen's, Glasgow, Newcastle and Liverpool. If any hopeful Dentists want any tips, I would love to help you.

A hobby of mine is playing guitar which I love. For the last 4 years, I also teach it and a massive kick of mine is seeing a student nail a tricky part of a song that they had struggled with and I'm looking forward to swapping those riffs for exam questions.

I'm an easy-going tutor and will go at the pace that suits you. A silly question is a question never asked and I don't expect you know all the answers but just be up for learning. My sessions will largely fall under 2 categories:

Topic Taught and explained: Following the specification, I'll break the topic down to its bare bones, then adding flesh to the skeleton. Included content such as: PDF revision notes on that topic, Example Exam Qs and Reminders of relevant points.

Exam Questions and answers: Focusing on exam technique on how we can answer questions to show your knowledge and understanding. Also giving me a chance to see if you struggle in some parts. e.g. Biology Qs frequently have tricky "suggest" questions and a trick to chemistry calculations often lies in how we lay out our working.
