I hold extensive experience in teaching academic writing and research at BA, MA and PhD level, successfully supporting students at Sotheby's MA Art Theory and Business of the Arts, UAL, RCA, Goldsmiths BA Media Studies, SOAS Curatorial Museum Studies, University of Nottingham and Bristol University BA Art History.

I support students in developing critical, analytical thinking and ways to structure ideas which the higher-order and complex thinking that academic research and writing demand. Working internationally, I practice a deep understanding of the challenges that a student with English as a second language face in studying in the UK.

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.

About Dr Christopher
  • Attended:
  • 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 hold a PhD (no corrections) in International Relations from the Department of War Studies, King's College London.

I grew up in the international environment of Brussels, appreciating the dynamic community and languages on offer, whilst also attending the British School of Brussels and following the A-Level curriculum. Outside of my academic life I enjoy sports, notably tennis and skiing, and am an avid theatre and art goer. I was heavily involved in societies during my undergraduate degree being a part of a musical production at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and gaining the St Andrews Music Department Vocal Scholarship in 2006-2007.

I am an approachable, sensitive, and competent tutor who always takes a considered approach tailored to the needs of a given student. I maintain a balance of academic rigor and making learning and revision fun.

About Dr Karl

  • University College London (University of London)

I am an experienced and passionate teacher whose practice is informed by my work as both a Lecturer and a Tutor at university level (with the University of Nottingham, the University of London and the University of Hertfordshire), as well as by my work in academic philosophy. Having taught throughout my doctoral studies both within my core academic expertise and in other areas, I am highly adaptable in my approach and have a keen understanding of the skills required for any student to write well, especially to meet the demands of higher education. Having studied at both the University of London and the University of Cambridge I also have an intimate understanding of the expectations and characters of different academic institutions.

I have published academic work in Philosophy as well as more publicly accessible work in the subject (for instance, writing for *The Philosophers' Magazine*), and I have also published several pieces of fiction. This has helped to build my strong understanding of the qualities required for clear and effective writing, which I integrate with all of my teaching. I have taught students online both one-to-one and in group settings, from secondary school to undergraduate level.

I am also experienced in teaching at pre-university level, having tutored A-Level and GCSE students in Philosophy, Religious Studies, English and Mathematics. I recently started working with a charity offering tutoring catered to students having to re-take GCSE English or Mathematics, which has given me valuable insight into some of the obstacles students can face when trying to study these subjects.

My motivation for science, coupled with my ambition has led me to pursing a research career in the biosciences that I hope will lead to teaching the next generation of scientists. I have written for the Imperial College student newspaper, Felix, to convey interesting and relevant ideas in medical biology. I have obtained a thorough understanding of biology, chemistry and biochemistry during my six years of higher education. My strengths lie in my communication and clarity with students, detailed understanding of biological and chemical sciences and analysis of examination questions to devise appropriate answers.

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 currently work in Scientific Communications. I spend my day ‘translating' complicated medical and research topics into engaging and informative content. With a great eye for detail I can quickly pinpoint ways to improve your personal statement and help you tick the right boxes for an admissions team.

I teach researchers how best to communicate their research to various audiences, ranging from healthcare professionals to patients.
