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.

Experience

During my PhD and Masters of Research, I have taught both undergraduate and masters students. They were typically taught in a laboratory setting to demonstrate techniques and explain fundamental principles. One of my Masters students managed to obtain a Distinction award for her laboratory work and thesis writing and is now applying to the PhD programme herself.

Additionally, since 2016, I have taught a pantheon of students. With my help, my Year 9 student was able to apply for Higher Tier science GCSEs, my GCSE Chemistry and Physics student was confident for her final year exams and my A level biology student reached a sufficient level to successfully enter a biological science Bachelor of Science.
