I have always been fascinated with Biology. My specialist area is medical Biology. Nature has amazing ways of protecting and defending itself, but sometimes things go wrong, and problems need solving. This is why I completed a degree in Biomedical Science. During my studies, I learned how to diagnose disease in several disciplines, including microbiology, haematology, toxicology, and biochemistry. I gained widespread experience in laboratory practices and used microscopes a lot!
As a private Tutor, I enjoyed passing on my knowledge through creative teaching methods and went on to complete a PGCE with Cardiff Metropolitan University. I have since taught a wide range of science courses including A Level Biology, GCSE Biology. I have loved meeting people of all ages from diverse backgrounds.
Completing an online course in 3D Bioprinting and nanotechnology inspired me to undertake a Master’s in Nanomedicine at Swansea University. This involved studying groundbreaking methods to improve areas of medicine, for example, reducing diagnosis times for cancer and Alzheimer’s, finding alternative treatments to chemotherapy, and using genetic engineering to silence gene mutations. I thoroughly enjoyed getting stuck into my research project investigating the effect of pollution nanoparticles on blood clotting.
I have since been teaching A Level Biology and working as an examiner for over five years with Cambridge Assessment (CAIE) and Pearson Edexcel. The best part of teaching is watching students progress. I believe in providing high-quality exam training and feedback to help students achieve their best possible grade.
When I’m not working, I enjoy running, going for walks by the sea or taking hiking trips to the beautiful Brecon Beacons.
I look forward to assisting you in your studies!
