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.

Experience

For the past thirteen years I have provided tuition in economics, philosophy, mathematics and psychology on a full-time basis, ranging from KS1 all the way through to PhD level. I have also provided coaching for Oxbridge interviews through the charity Teach First.

I have taught students from various universities including Cambridge, Oxford, LSE, and Harvard. I have also led undergraduate classes at UCL in logic and philosophy, and am a senior mentor for the United Kingdom Mathematics Trust.
