My specialist subjects are Biology and Chemistry. Ive been a tutor for 7 years now and really enjoy helping children and teenagers learn to get to grips with difficult topic or subject areas.
Based in West London, I tutor a small number of children in preparation for their 11+ and public examinations (GCSEs, A-levels, IB). I am able to tutor up to A-level/IB in Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, French, Spanish, Philosophy and Music.
I am a rounded and motivated doctor currently working at Charing Cross hospital, with a broad range of other interests including writing, literature, theatre and ballet. I am an accomplished pianist and have practiced ballet for many years, continuing to do so alongside my medical practice. I am actively pursuing a career in Psychiatry, with a particular interest in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychoanalysis.
