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.

I am an erudite and very capable educator with over 10 years of teaching experience in Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics at both GCSE-level and A-level.
I gained my DPhil in Molecular Biochemistry and Chemical Biology from the University of Oxford. During my DPhil I published first-author papers in highly-regarded journals and filed a patent on my research. I also gave undergraduate tutorials and I was an admissions interviewer in the Biochemistry department for three years.
I work full-time as a private tutor and educational consultant. I am highly organized and plan my lessons thoroughly to ensure my students gain in both knowledge and confidence. I also ensure my students develop good examination technique with plenty of practice answering exam-style questions. I am an Assessment Specialist with both CIE and OCR and thus have an excellent understanding of the examination process.
