I am a Biological Sciences graduate from the University of Exeter and am now in my final year of Graduate Entry Medicine at Imperial College London.
In between studying, I worked for a year in a microbiology laboratory, before working for 3 years at the Science Council - one the leading voices for science education in the UK.
I consider my primary role is to work with a student`s underlying knowledge, and to foster understanding through questioning. A key element of this is breaking down complex ideas into manageable chunks, focusing on general understanding first, and detail second. I also believe it is important to engender an enthusiasm for all the sciences, as the most successful students are those who can apply their knowledge. I do this by showing the student how the disciplines cross-over, and demonstrating how the knowledge they are learning for their exams, actually translates into real-life applications. I also endeavour to work with the students on their study skills, to ensure they are revising and answering exam questions in the most effective manner.
