About me

Hi. I am a medical student on a graduate course at University of Southampton. I enjoy the mixture of scientific learning, problem solving and hands on work. I went through the application process to medical school successfully twice, so I am well aware of how challenging it can be and all the preparation required for the UKCAT (now UCAT) and interviews. I have plenty of experience to help guide anyone through the entire process from personal statement writing to mock interviews.

My degree in Medical Biochemistry gives me the in depth knowledge of Biology to break down topics to the underlying principles, and explain concepts in different ways until they stick!

I try to use diagrams alongside any explanations to help the student visualise what I am talking about. I am always happy for questions, either in the chat during the session or sent before/after a session to talk through next time. I work through set problems and questions with my tutees to help with exam technique.


If there is a way of learning that you prefer, just let me know and I will try to accommodate and tailor my sessions to that style.
