About Dr Arjun

I believe my role as a tutor is to provide my students with individual assistance and support with their problems, and equally importantly, to try and ignite their interest in studying. I try and engage my students, to stimulate them, while still making them feel comfortable around me. It is essential that students not only get good grades, but also understand concepts, learn to think mathematically and solve problems themselves.

Rather than just showing them how to solve problems, I encourage students to think and work through things themselves, while only gently prodding them in the right direction. This tends to greatly enhance their knowledge and self-confidence, and many are surprised at how well they do.

About Dr Christopher

  • University College London (University of London)

I have recently retired from a Senior lectureship position (associate professorship) after 45 years at University College London. I was a senior lecturer in Biochemistry, enzymology, biotechnology, molecular biology and medical biochemistry. I was a degree programme tutor for many years and was an admissions tutor for the last 27 years of my career. I have vast experience of the entire UCAS process in my capacity as admissions tutor and have spoken publicly on numerous occasions at schools and colleges. I have critically read more than 20,000 UCAS forms and advised many students on personal statement writing, careers, higher education, medical applications and degree programme applications. I spent 35 years as a cancer research and enzymology research scientist, publishing papers and patents throughout my career, supervised PhD students and undergraduate students through complex research projects and acted as a mentor to thousands of students. Whilst my skill set is mainly in the biosciences, I have much experience of natural sciences, medicine and biochemical engineering but have a generic feel for writing and reading UCAS forms. I was personally involved in interviewing thousands of undergraduate students for university places and so know the stresses of these processes on young people. I have also been on medical interview panels and carried out numerous mock interviews with students applying for medicine at undergraduate and graduate level. I have been involved in curriculum design both at UCL and for AQA as an expert on the biological sciences A2 curriculum (current curriculum). In my former role as outreach and admissions lead in the biosciences at UCL I have spoken to many parents and applicants about the university environment, applications and the whole experience of university life and have been actively involved with young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in my outreach activities.

I have a wealth of experience in the whole process of thinking about, applying, coping and succeeding in higher education. As a personal tutor it was my role to look after the well-being, both academically and pastorally of my students. I am a student-friendly and affable person who strongly believes that any young person given the right help can be succesful.

- career and future planning

I have a strong academic background and an in-depth knowledge of universities and what it takes to perform academically. I help my students to succeed on their own merit and to develop transferable skills such as writing and critical thinking. I work holistically with each student so that they can bring any aspect of their lives to the tutoring sessions to be addressed. This provides a confidential space and has a wider focus than more conventional forms of tutoring. My sessions are designed to support, challenge, inspire, and build confidence.

Archaeology, which I studied for my first degree, remains a passion of mine. As my academic career has progressed, I have moved slightly away from it in recent years but it remains an area of study which I still value a lot and try to engage with on a volunteer basis as regularly as possible. The shift I have experienced myself, changing from a science based degree to a far more humanities orientated degree, has really helped me to gain an insight into the scale of change many students can feel moving from GCSE to A-level and then to university and this has been reflected in my approach to tutoring. I always try to show my students that learning should be fun and not as daunting or intimidating as it may first seem. My greatest passion is teaching and I have always loved helping students find their own way around new concepts and also for me to learn from them, which is something with makes one-to-one teaching so fun.

Outside of education my other passions lie in the fields of art and computers. I combine these two interests in my own digital art which is something is really really enjoy. I believe that it is vial for people, no matter what stage of their life they are at, to remain in touch with the things they love and are passionate about, beyond their own schooling or career.

I fell into tutoring when offered some part-time tuition work, during my study of Linguistics and Spanish at St Catherine's College, Oxford. Roughly eight years later, tutoring has become my full-time profession, still with a focus on those two subjects, as well as university entrance to Oxbridge and Russell Group universities for a range of subjects. I am lucky to teach language and linguistics - two subjects which dovetail each other and continually provide new avenues for exploration. I have helped students improve their language grades at all levels, and achieve university offers from Oxbridge, Edinburgh, Bristol, and others. I take an informal but rigorous approach to tutoring, taking advantage of the personal, non-classroom relationship that tuition allows. I have a special (but rarely indulged!) interest in Old Norse and modern Icelandic.
