My journey with this centre began in 2009 when I was lucky enough to win 5 free tutoring lessons at my school raffle! Since then I have regularly attended tutoring sessions here as well as being provided with the opportunity to first receive work experience here, and then carry on to work here part-time alongside my A level and university studies. I am currently studying Biomedical Engineering at Kings College London.
I began my journey tutoring at this centre in June 2019, while completing my degree in Chemistry at Queen Mary University of London. My passion for tutoring started as I was helping my younger brother prepare for his GCSEs. This made me realise the importance of breaking down complex topics into simple terms. I completed sixth form with A-Levels in Chemistry, Maths and Art.
In addition to tutoring, I have a passion for art, regularly visiting art galleries and painting in my free time. I love taking care of animals and have a dog and bearded dragon at home.
