I'm a second year student studying Ecology, Animal Biology and Organic Chemistry. I finished my first year with a first in Biology of Cells and Elementary maths for Biologists, a 2.i in Chemistry and a 2.ii in Evolution and Animal Behaviour.  My main interests lie in organic chemistry and its biological applications and the evolution of early life on Earth.  I'm a sociable and creative person, with quite a playful personality whilst maintaining a professional demeanor. I really think that learning should be more accessible and fun!

            I like to take a very visual approach, knowing that I always learnt best by creating vivid stories or pictures in my mind; it brings the subject to life! I also encourage exploring the subject in a broader sense too - helping you understand why it might be that way, as opposed to wrote learning.

            I've tutored all ages; from teaching my nephew how to read and spell, to helping out an adult on an access to learning course.  I worked with a secondary school in my local area to tutor maths and science GCSE with about 6 lower performing students (all of whom improved!)  Finally I often help peers whilst at university by explaining more difficult concepts in a new way.

            I am a hypnotist; performing stage shows whilst at university! I've played piano for about 12 years and absolutely love learning languages. Whilst at uni, I took up sign language and salsa dancing, too.
