By day, I'm a stem cell scientist at the Cell & Gene Therapy Catapult; by evening, an enthusiastic tutor! I hold a BSc (Hons) in Biochemistry from UCL and recently graduated top of my cohort in an MSc in Cell Therapy from KCL. I am passionate about science and the public understanding of science but also have keen interests beyond my academic qualifications; I am the director of a theatre company and was heavily involved with theatre during my time at UCL. I have recently performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and directed a show at a West End theatre: as an accomplished actor and director I am comfortable in communicating with a wide range of people. I have taught both in London and Mumbai across a range of subjects in very different environments and pride myself on being able to empathise with a learner and tailor my teaching style. I currently tutor for a number of children in North London.
A-Level: Over a year's experience tutoring A-level Biology to a year 13 student with SEN. Together we were able to improve his performance by two grades and he achieved a place at University in Bristol! GCSE: A wealth of experience tutoring a number of students across all three sciences, most recently my two year 11 students achieved grades between 7 and 9 in all sciences. I also have experience working with small groups at a Saturday school in Mile End teaching Sciences, English and Mathematics. Away from tutoring I have always had a passion for teaching. I spent six months in Dharavi, Mumbai where I taught English as a foreign language to small classes alongside establishing two drama workshop courses for the NGO Reality Gives. At school I ran a bridge society, teaching younger students to play the game. Through all of this experience I have honed my ability to understand a student's learning style and adapt my teaching appropriately - allowing me to empower my tutees.
