I am a Foundation Year 1 doctor in Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, having graduated in July 2015 with a First in Medical Sciences, and in July 2018 with a Merit in Medicine and Surgery. As part of my degree I was awarded the Association of Physicians Research Prize for my work on the Oxford Unicompartmental Knee Replacement. I previously studied at Eton College, where I achieved 11A*s at GCSE, 4As at AS level, and A*s in Biology and Religious Studies and an A in Chemistry at A level.

            To get the best from students I allow them to choose their own goals and schedule, organising tutorial sessions to suit the student's timetable. Tutorials are supplemented by tailored work assignments, which are given detailed feedback and discussed in the subsequent tutorial. Within a tutorial students are encouraged to ask questions and raise any concerns they might have about the subject matter and I find that students benefit more from a detailed discussion of a topic, rather than simply listening to an explanation.

            I have tutored numerous students applying to medical school, giving detailed advice and feedback on personal statements, preparing them for UKCAT and BMAT exams, as well as practising entrance interviews for a range of UK medical schools, and Oxbridge interviews in other subjects. I have tutored in a range of science and humanities subjects at GCSE level, and in Biology and Chemistry at AS and A level. I have a wealth of experience in both coursework feedback and exam preparation in GCSE and A Level Biology, having taken students from the very beginning of a syllabus right through to achieving 100% UMS in that paper.

            Outside of academic study I spend my time playing a number of sports. I regularly compete in triathlons, and have also rowed, played rugby and water polo from college to national level. I was part of the winning Oxford University team in the Under 21 Varsity Rugby Match at Twickenham in December 2014.
