About me

I've always liked seeing my students develop. Teaching ballet for 5 years, I've been able to see my students grow, and I want to make that change in my students' academic lives as well.

My chosen field is Biomedical Sciences and I got interested in it in a really odd way. I was often inspired by the work they did on Greys Anatomy and even though it wasn't very accurate, it opened me to a world of possibilities that I couldn't get in school, and that's what I like...

I hope by the end of it students become passionate in the subject being taught, as I once had when I was tutored in Chemistry. I used to hate chemistry, but after a year with a dedicated tutor, I had learned to love it and that's what made me excel. And I hope that I can do that for other students.

About my sessions

I always like to know what the students are struggling with at that point in time and how they learn, so I can get the best out of the lesson. I have good experience in my field, but I still like to read up on topics before so that I can fully explain the concepts to students. 

Often, we should set a goal before we start, like what grade they should get in a set period of time. I would like to measure progress by giving them past exam questions to do in their own time and have them send...

Often, we should set a goal before we start, like what grade they should get in a set period of time. I would like to measure progress by giving them past exam questions to do in their own time and have them send it to me to mark as well as go over the mark scheme so that the student knows what key words they need to include to get the marks.

It may be about getting the grades, but its also about enjoying the subject so I'd highly recommend reading out of their expected syllabus. Such as picking up a National Geographic or Discovery magazine to read up on the latest discoveries which can often be applied to classroom concepts.
