I am a Senior Lecturer at a leading UK university. I am a fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a member of The Tutors' Association. I have 20 years experience teaching undergraduates and postgraduates at university. I am an active research scientist and lead a laboratory where I train Masters and PhD students. I also teach Biomedical and Biological sciences to undergraduates at all levels. I specialise in teaching Academic Writing Skills and empower students to write high quality theses, dissertations, reports and essays. I have a friendly approachable teaching style but I always challenge my students to think!

I am an experienced one-to-one professional tutor. In recent years I've switched to private tuition exclusively online. Online tuition is a superb way to learn. I provide a rich and interactive environment with face-to-face webcam and a host of software that supports all styles of learning. I use interactive whiteboards, video animation, PowerPoint and GoogleDocs. Students only need basic IT skills - I do the rest. I specialise in teaching Academic Writing skills, including theses, dissertations, reports, and essays. I also have extensive experience with small group-teaching in tutorials both live and online. At university I teach laboratory practical skills from year 1 to PhD. I lecture to small and large groups (20-200). I have designed numerous lectures, tutorials and eLearning materials. I am also external examiner for BSc programmes in medical sciences for a leading UK university. I also teach A-level Biology (OCR, IB, AQA).
