About me

Hi! I'm Valentina and I am studying for a PhD in Biosciences at UCL. I chose to study Biology due to its diversity of topics and how it allows you to understand the human body which for me is the most fascinating part! Taking exams at school allowed me to learn how to filter important information and how to quickly and concisely understand new concepts. Those skills help me at a university level when the content can be very extensive and complex.

Hi! I'm Valentina and I am studying for a PhD in Biosciences at UCL. I chose to study Biology due to its diversity of topics and how it allows you to understand the human body which for me is the most fascinating part! Taking exams at school allowed me to learn how to filter important information and how to quickly and concisely understand new concepts. Those skills help me at a university level when the content can be very extensive and complex. I am part of the athletics society at university as I like to keep fit and it's a great way to meet new people! In my free time I also enjoy drawing and relaxing with my friends after a long, busy day.

About my sessions

I believe that it is important that students understand the areas of the course that they struggle the most with and spend the most amount of time on those parts to make sure that they don't go into an exam thinking I hope that does not come up, we have all done that! So I would ask the student if there are any areas in particular that they struggle with and if there are, then I can create lessons prior to the session to make sure that that content is covered. If not I am more than willin...

I believe that it is important that students understand the areas of the course that they struggle the most with and spend the most amount of time on those parts to make sure that they don't go into an exam thinking I hope that does not come up, we have all done that! So I would ask the student if there are any areas in particular that they struggle with and if there are, then I can create lessons prior to the session to make sure that that content is covered. If not I am more than willing to also provide overviews as well. Asking questions and having the student answer in bullet points I think is an effective way to see if the student really understands something, allowing them to clearly pick out the important information. That is a great way to measure progress; the ability to answer questions and to see how much detail can be included each time the same question is answered is important. I believe that diagrams and images work really well, especially when explaining complicated biological concepts that can be hard to visualise. Everybody learns in different ways so I will try my best to suit people's learning styles to help them reach their personal targets!
