Methodology

I usually tailor my teaching method to the student. Before starting, I aim to understand the level at which the student is, and where they would like to be. I like to find out if they have a favourite way of leaning eg. visual, kinaesthetic etc and where they think their weaknesses lie. I can then adapt my approach according to them. I like to tackle each topic from the start, to ensure the basics are understood (this can be done very quickly if the student knows a topic, but I think it's important to lay a good foundation first). From then, i build up the complexity to the necessary level. If someone doesn't understand something, I always endeavour to try and explain it in several different ways until they do. I'm also a strong believer that giving your student confidence in themselves and their capabilities is very important.

Experience

I have recently graduated with a Masters in Biochemistry and I'm due to start a second Masters to train to become a Physician's Associate soon. I obtained a high 2:1 in my first degree as well as extensive practical experience. In the past, I have taught at a Summer Science camp, tutored a couple of students for the science GCSEs who went on to pass with A-C when some were predicted to fail. I have also tutored as a volunteer in Fiji in much more basic maths and english. Here, the large language barrier really tested my communication skills however I was able to help bring everyone in the class up to standards, with the whole class passing their annual exams. I have also completed the TeachFirst Insight Programme, learning valuable skills and even teaching my own biology lesson.
