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 and a level of knowledge that I couldn't get in school, a...

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 and a level of knowledge that I couldn't get in school, and that's what I liked about it. 

I hope by the end, students become passionate in the subject being taught, as I once had when I was tutored in Chemistry. Chemistry was often a subject I disliked because I had difficulties understanding concepts, but after a year with a dedicated tutor, I excelled in the subject and gained a deep appreciation for its applications in everyday life, and I hope I can do this for students as well.

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 concepts in a coherent and efficient manner to students.

I often set a goal of knowing what grade you would like to 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. After all, it's often the quirky pieces of research such as antibiotic-producing bacteria in the nose and engineered T cells that you would find when picking up a National Geographic or Discovery magazine which are the most memorable, and can be easily applied to classroom concepts.
