My specialist subjects are Biology and Maths. I am able to teach children from as young as 4 years old till A-level. I enjoy all the subjects I teach and aim to instil in my students a real enthusiasm for the subject.
I gained one of the top 5 marks in the country for GCSE Maths and full marks in several of the written papers at A-Level. I therefore feel that I have great exam techniques that I pass on to my students. This goes hand in hand with knowledge for exam success.
I have experience in helping students gain entry to study Medicine at some of the top universities in the UK. I am able to help throughout the whole process from gaining work experience to sitting the UKCAT, preparing your UCAS application to finally preparing for your interview.
In June 2013 I attained a 2:1 (Hons) in Oral and Craniofacial Biology at Kings College London. I have already completed three years of Medicine, also at Kings, which I will complete in June 2015. My secondary school education was spent at Oathall Community College in Sussex. I really enjoy tutoring, particularly on a one to one basis as this enables me to focus on the particular needs of the student and help them progress and grow in confidence.

I love to learn modern languages, and continue to take classes at university, outside of the core teaching, in both French and Spanish. I enjoy spending my free time going to theatre productions and intellectual talks.
