Every student learns at a different pace. I keep students engaged by challenging them and testing their abilities, without overwhelming them and ensuring a relaxed feel to lessons.
I'm open and approachable; I encourage students to ask questions, I'm patient and ensure they are comfortable with the material.
Finally, I monitor progress via MCQ and essay-style questions, providing them with a good foundation for a higher level of learning.
I have recently returned from the University Of Lisbon where I was researching HIV, due to COVID-19. I understand the disruption caused to pupils' education and am keen to help get those who feel behind on their studies back on track, ready for the new school term or university semester.
September 2019 - June 2020: Laboratory Assistant (University of Lisbon)
I spent 9 months in Portugal researching a microRNA (miR-34c-5p) previously implicated in HIV replication. I used a variety of molecular techniques to manipulate naïve CD4 T cells, and measured results using flow cytometry. These tasks drew upon and complemented my knowledge in genetics, immunology & chemistry.
September 2017 - Present: Biochemistry MSci (University of Surrey) + Social Media ambassador
First year grade - 84%
Second year grade - 78%
As a biochemist, I study a broad range of topics including genetics, cellular biology, physiology, immunology & microbiology, and of course the underlying chemistry to complete my understanding.
During my second year of studies I took part in the production of a series of educational videos published on the university's Facebook page. Communicating complex scientific concepts to the public is an essential skill for any scientist.
