Biology PhD graduate offering Biology lessons up to university level in Edinburgh

Methodology

I teach both secondary school and university level Biology tailored to the specific student's needs and interests, using techniques that have been shown as the best learning tools in research and that helped me personally to acquire good grades.

I would initially have a meeting with the student and learn about the specific help they need and also their learning style and what their interests are and then plan the lessons accordingly.

Experience

I have a BSc Honours degree in Genetics and a PhD in Evolutionary Molecular Biology with additional work experience. I tutored and supervised students during my PhD who then went on to acquire passing and higher grades in their tests.
