About

I have tutored friends and neighbours virtually my whole life although only formally for a while in New Zealand while I was waiting to come to UK. I have a PhD in Biochemical Engineering and my undergraduate degree was in Chemical and Process Engineering. Always open to a free chat about engineering and science as a career option if anyone has questions.
