Hi, I'm Allison

I am currently a medical student in my final years and I have also completed a bachelor of biomedical science. In looking back at my VCE biology studies, I realised that biology really makes up the foundations of what I learn about everyday and what doctors use in making their decisions everyday.

A confession though... I didn't really enjoy biology in highschool. It felt very dry and things just wouldnt stick. Now that I'm in the medical field I have a new found wonder of biology and I want to help you find yours. I designed this school with the aim of providing videos that break down biology to the simple concepts and then build them back up with more of the details as well as real life examples.

I hope to ignite some interest in you for your biology studies and make it easier to learn. Peace.
