My academic background is in neuroscience, and because of this I have a strong foundation in both biology and psychology. A large portion of my current role at UCL involves teaching students in our laboratory: I love teaching and find it incredibly rewarding to see students progress. In addition I have gained experience working with children and teenagers in sports coaching roles; I also volunteered regularly at Vauxhall city farm, teaching horse riding to children with disabilities.
Although exam success is my top priority, I also aim for students to develop a broader understanding of scientific concepts and a sense of how a specific topic fits into the wider body of knowledge. I believe the best results come from genuine engagement with and enjoyment of a subject. Biology and psychology are subjects I find endlessly fascinating, and studying them has led me to a career that I love. I hope I can share my enthusiasm with my students and build their confidence. I understand that people develop at different paces so I always tailor my lessons according to the needs of the student. I am a friendly, positive person who takes a patient and practical approach to teaching.
