Students tell me that: "I am hopeful you will be around to help with tutoring (what you are so good at)!
" I just wanted to let you know that I got my results back for the thesis and I got a 1st! (78.5%!) I could not have done it without you, and I am so grateful."
"I remember and benefit from Bess's inspiring, encouraging and empowering approach. She just gave me that extra nudge to go for the goals that I want to achieve and to have the courage to "cross the Rubicon."
Professional feedback states that: "Bess has proved she is a flexible and responsive teacher. She looks carefully at the needs of the student and responds accordingly, devising and structuring schemes of work and lesson plans which meet the differentiated needs of the learners. Bess also uses enjoyable and relevant topics which motivate the learners and help them access the experience in a fun and stimulating way.
An experienced University teacher and admissions tutor of many years standing, winner of a Provosts teaching award and student choice teaching awards from UCL.
- 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.
