Do you have a personal message for students?
Biography: I am starting medicine at the university of Edinburgh this September.
I graduated from Smith College in 2012, where I tutored and mentored underrepresented students in the sciences, and I began tutoring in London while I completed my MSc Neuroscience at King’s College London in 2013. Currently I tutor full time while gaining experience to apply to graduate medical school.

I specialize in neuroscience and psychology, and also teach IB HL English, SL Environmental Science and SL Biology. I attained 6's or 7's in every IB class and full marks on my Extended Essay and TOK. Having grown up travelling I have experienced a vast number of schools and teaching styles and I am quick to adjust a strategy to suit the learning style of a student. As a tutor with learning disabilities myself, I am able to find the right methods to help every student achieve their very best. I am also an artist and I often encourage students to draw out a complex idea, and the combination of physical movement and verbal explanation set an idea much more firmly in someone's memory than sound or writing alone. I am a very determined woman, and have prevented a variety of setbacks from interfering with my academic career. In terms of learning disabilities or personal struggles, I also think it's a big help for young students to work with a tutor who not only knows their subject but has overcome difficulties themselves as opposed to someone who has always managed effortlessly- I believe it helps students see that there is no reason they can not also achieve.

In my spare time I take a printmaking class, visit my mother in Sweden, enjoy crime-dramas, and am looking for a big dog to rescue. I am also hoping to find a BSL course to begin soon.
