About me

I am currently studying Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, specialising in biology. I love my degree because it allows me to explore my passion for life on earth and study in an environment with many of the world's top academics. I have always been enthusiastic about my subject and, especially throughout GCSE and A-level, I was lucky enough to have great teachers that were able to help guide that enthusiasm in a way that allowed me to access to top marks in exams.

I am currently studying Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, specialising in biology. I love my degree because it allows me to explore my passion for life on earth and study in an environment with many of the world's top academics. I have always been enthusiastic about my subject and, especially throughout GCSE and A-level, I was lucky enough to have great teachers that were able to help guide that enthusiasm in a way that allowed me to access to top marks in exams. I hope that this is a skill I have picked up and will be able to pass on to others. Even if my students are not quite as keen on biology as I was in their position, I aim to spread some of my (apparently boundless) passion for the subject and help students achieve their goals.

 

I know from first-hand experience the benefits that good advice and interview practice can have on an Oxbridge application. Knowing what to expect is probably the biggest factor that allowed me to keep my cool during both the admissions assessment and the interview itself. Having now seen the system from the other side and worked closely with some of the admissions tutors, I hope I can help others make their application stand out and ace their interviews.

About my sessions

and past questions to support learning. Exam technique will be past-paper question focused in order to help students show off their skills in the most effective way to maximise marks. Tailoring the balance of these aspects to each

and past questions to support learning. Exam technique will be past-paper question focused in order to help students show off their skills in the most effective way to maximise marks. Tailoring the balance of these aspects to each

individual student allows me to help with problem areas and work to unlock their full potential.

 

Oxbridge and Personal Statement Preparation

Oxbridge application can be a daunting process and talking to someone who has been through the system is a great way to ease those nerves and maximise your chance of a successful application. I can offer practice interview sessions which I found a great way to learn how to think on your feet and under pressure. I can also offer more general application support, advice on Cambridge colleges and insight into the Natural Sciences course. Personal statement writing can be tricky and I can also offer sessions to help focus in on a student's skills and attributes that will make them stand out to anyuniversity they apply to.
