I am a keen all round biologist with a particular interest in genetics. I conducted my PhD research at the University of Birmingham, which was focused on the genetic basis of Wolfram Syndrome, a rare inherited neurodegenerative disease.
Following completion of my research I moved to Aberdeenshire and am currently working flexibly from home, whilst dedicating my spare time to the study of canine behaviour and training.
I take an informal but organised approach to tutoring with the aim of providing a comfortable and non-pressured learning environment, where students feel able and encouraged to ask questions and build confidence at a pace that is comfortable for them.
Whilst relatively new to home tutoring I have gained experience during my time at university tutoring undergraduates and mentoring research students in the laboratory. I have previous experience working as a classroom assistant to children with special educational needs and have also participated in the Student Associate Scheme in England, working on placement in the Science Dept. of Camborne School with secondary and post-16 students.
