The easiest way to explain any concept is to make it relatable and easy to understand. That means, that getting a better understanding of what the students enjoy and relate with makes it easier to explain concepts. Interactive lessons with lots of experiments, or talking about the people who researched the field makes it easier to understand concepts as well. One on one interaction is as important as self study - and I will also be making worksheets and activities to encourage better understanding of concepts.
I am a current UCL student studying Social Sciences. I am from India, and love to meet new people and interact with individuals from various backgrounds. Biology was my favourite subject in school and I hope that I can help kids love the subjects as much as I do.
