Tell me about your qualifications.
I am currently studying graduate entry medicine at Imperial College London.
I have a PhD in Vaccine Development and an MSc in Immunology from Imperial College London, prior to this I completed a BSc in Biological Sciences (Hons) Infectious Diseases from the University of Edinburgh.
What kind of experience do you have?
I have a wide range of experience! I have taught KS1 and KS2 to children attending competitive private schools in London and helped them gain entry to their ideal secondary schools. I also extensively teach GCSE Sciences and A Level Biology for all of exam boards.
I have experience in tutoring and marking MSc/ PhD level dissertations in Biological Sciences.
As I've been through the medical application process recently I can help with personal statements, interview prep and general advice about the application process for both graduates and undergraduates. I can also help with MSc and PhD applications.
How much do you charge?
Standard charge is £50 per hour for KS1/KS2 and GCSE level and £60 for A level and university level. Same pricing applies for online tuition.

Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?
A Levels
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
Do you have a personal message for students?
I am very approachable and patient and would tailor my teaching style to suit each student. As I have an international background (growing up in the UK, Germany and Russia and speaking fluent Russian) I am able to get along with a wide range of students.

I believe that every student has the potential to flourish in their classes and this can result in long term academic success if encouraged to explore and be curious about the topics they are studying.
