Currently I am undertaking my final year of my PhD focusing on the metabolism of immune cells in autoimmune disease. My PhD is multidisciplinary and has allowed me to really enjoy my favourite subject areas including; statistics, biochemistry and immunology. At times i have found exams very difficult, particularly essay questions, but with the help of my teachers, i developed a few techniques to make them easily manageable. My lessons will be tailored to you, focusing on how you learn best and aim to build confidence and understanding of the subject. I will start by focusing on the basic fundamentals of your subject, assess any weaknesses and progress from there. I believe it is important to maintain a healthy work life balance. Outside of my studies i enjoy several TCGs/CCGs, rock climbing and music.

I will aim to highlight key problem areas, focusing on your understanding of the foundation of the subject and where your strengths and weaknesses lie. I will build up your confidence and reinforce your own understanding of the subject, to help achieve your goals. Furthermore, together we will look at developing good exam techniques and foster a good working practice to help you excel and feel confident in tackling questions. Over time, i can track your progress and note down any further areas you may need help and provide feedback every month/term.


Not everyone learns the same way. As such, i will try to tailor sessions to everyone's individual style where possible. This can be from working through exam questions together, quick fire question/answer games or problem solving tasks to help introduce and explain different concepts. Most importantly, i will aim to make every session fun and enjoyable.
