Glasgow-based MSci Zoology graduate offering lessons in Biology topics (including Zoology, Microbiology, Physiology and Anatomy).

Methodology

I like to adopt a flexible approach to teaching as I feel that this will provide the student with the best support possible. I begin each lesson by discussing the specific aims of the student, testing their pre-existing knowledge of the topic and highlighting key areas which may need to be addressed. At the end of each lesson, I like to engage the pupil in a 5 minute summary of what we have covered and get their feedback on the lesson style as a whole.

Experience

I have recently graduated from the University of Glasgow with a First Class MSci degree in Zoology. I have two years worth of experience delivering environmental education in primary schools and secondary schools across Glasgow. I have undertaken assessments in Biology at Higher, Advanced Higher and university level and feel confident delivering 1-on-1 tutoring on a range of topics within this subject.
