Having an international upbringing, I am flexible with different types of learning. I like to begin my lessons by grasping the student's level of understanding, filling gaps in their knowledge by going through concepts that they are having trouble with, and end by testing their knowledge through a small quiz that I would prepare beforehand. If needed/desired I can prepare extra questions as homework and we will begin the next session by reviewing them.
Hello! My name is Daniel, and since starting university I have had experience in scientific research at Cancer Research UK, the University of Cambridge and the University of Tokyo. Together, I have worked across 5 labs where I have learned essential skills such as time management, communication and working as a team.
