Cardiovascular Physiology PhD student offering personalised biology tutoring lessons in South Manchester

Methodology

I believe the best approach is to first identify how a student learns, for example if someone is a visual learner, and adapt my teaching accordingly. The best start is to first outline any gaps in knowledge, and to then work through these gaps in a creative way. In addition, going through mock exam questions will ultimately help enhance exam performance and student grades, so once a student is confident in a certain subject area, practicing these questions and understanding how they are marked is a great way to prepare for exams; this is something I did when undertaking my exams both at University, in A-levels and in GCSE's, and it helped massively! Overall though, it's best to adhere directly to a students own needs, and take time to go through each stage of learning properly.

Experience

I'm a first year PhD student at the University of Manchester, sponsored by the British Heart Foundation, and I research new ways to treat heart failure! I also have both an MRes degree (Distinction) in Cardiovascular Sciences, and a first-class BSc degree in Physiology too. I have years of practical biology and science communication experience, working both in the lab, the lecture theatre and with the public. I am yet to gain any online tutoring experience, but given my background I feel I am a good candidate to help inspire and teach young students.

EDUCATION
The University of Manchester · British Heart Foundation 4-Year Scholarship Programme
Cardiovascular Physiology PhD Student: September 2020-Present
I am a first-year PhD student specifying in cardiovascular research, investigating the role of cardiac microtubules in transverse (t)-tubule biogenesis and maintenance in heart failure in the atria. I aim to better understand how microtubules are altered in heart failure in the atria and how they may affect t-tubule integrity, which in turn, underlies synchronous calcium release and thus a regular, strong heartbeat. My work includes a wide range of experimental models, focusing on the cellular, tissue and organ level, and incorporates predominantly wet-lab techniques.
MRes Cardiovascular Sciences: September 2019-August 2020
Grade achieved: Distinction
- Completed three projects covering a wide range of laboratory techniques and fields of study including vascular, cardiac, and molecular research, as well as EM computer analysis and bioinformatic analysis.
- Undertook independent and group-based tutorial projects consisting of presentations and essay-based assessments in chosen fields of research.
- Completed a literature review as a pre-requisite to my PhD project, and successfully produced a comprehensive research proposal to submit to the British Heart Foundation, both of which achieved a high distinction grade and formed the basis of my PhD project.

Also studied towards a Physiology research lab module, in which I designed and executed a research project, achieving a mark of 84%.
