About-Biologist

I currently offer private tuition for A level biology and human biology as well as GCSE science.   I also work for a leading home tuition provider in Cambridge.

Research Experience and Interest:  I have a Ph.D in molecular biology from the University of Oxford (D.Phil, Oxon)  where I was funded by the Cancer Research Campaign in the Department of Zoology.  I have held research posts at St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School, London and the Babraham Institute, Cambridge.

Previous Tuition Experience:  I have tutored A level and GCSE  for  Greene’s College, Oxford’s oldest tutorial college; MSC. Molecular Genetics at St. Mary’s Hospital Medical School;  and undergraduates, including those at  at Oxford University.
