About me

I am a second year medical student at the University of Birmingham, who has achieved 7s in both HL Biology and Chemistry. Having recently completed the pre-clinical component of my degree, I have always enjoyed learning the sciences - ranging from the anatomy and physiology of the human body to the molecular mechanisms that govern cells. My passion has led me to pursue an intercalation degree in Medical Sciences and I have successfully completed this with a first! As a IB tutor, I look to sha...

I am a second year medical student at the University of Birmingham, who has achieved 7s in both HL Biology and Chemistry. Having recently completed the pre-clinical component of my degree, I have always enjoyed learning the sciences - ranging from the anatomy and physiology of the human body to the molecular mechanisms that govern cells. My passion has led me to pursue an intercalation degree in Medical Sciences and I have successfully completed this with a first! As a IB tutor, I look to share my enthusiasm for the sciences with you and hopefully will make our lessons that much more engaging!  


What I have understood from my experiences of IB and medical school so far is that there can be no substitute for a solid understanding to achieve good grades. Especially for subjects like Biology and Chemistry, I know all-to-well that both require a lot to work to retain so much knowledge. However, if you take a step back and truly figure out the whys, hows and whats, revision becomes a whole lot easier (and it helps if you actually enjoy it like I did!) Furthermore, I cannot forget to stress the importance of practising exams questions, which I will also focus on in my teachings.


So thank you for your time and I look forward to teaching you!

About my sessions

Each individual student has their own strengths and weaknesses, so it is essential before any lesson to talk with you and figure out which areas you would like to improve in. In this way, I can tailor our lessons to your needs and structure it so that you get the most out of them. When setting dates for teaching sessions, I will ensure that there is enough time for me to re-examine the learning material and specific past-paper questions.

When setting dates for teaching sessions, I will ensure that there is enough time for me to re-examine the learning material and specific past-paper questions.


For the lessons themselves, they will NOT simply involve me lecturing you! I will encourage you to actively participate in sessions by asking pre-prepared questions for you to answer and checking that you understand what is taught at every step. Visual aids such as diagrams will be a must, especially for explaining difficult concepts. And finally, I will try to leave some time at the end for your own questions on either the material we covered or any concerns with other topics.

He is very considerate in teaching concepts and precise in explaining the terminologies in Biology. It is pleasant having lessons with him!

Like always, it was a pleasant lesson. He was willing to teach me the things I couldn't quite understand in the first place, and he would give some useful tips for the exam which was super helpful!
