Lessons: Cutting Edge Ageing Research, University level Cellular Biology, A-levels/GCSE Biology

Methodology

I have guided and taught BSc undergraduates and MRes students for 4 years now, culminating in award-winning presentations by some of the students, while one has carried on to do a PhD. Thus, I understand that each student has a different way of learning. My default method of teaching is a structured conversation coupled with a somewhat Socratic method. I believe this fosters interest and stimulates thought, leading to intuitive and reproducible acquisition of knowledge.

Experience

I am a 3rd year PhD student researching cellular senescence and nutrition in ageing. The field of ageing is currently progressing quickly, with most non-specialised people keeping a year or two behind developments. My experience allows me to offer you an insightful, flexible and cutting-edge biological sciences course in my area of expertise, which can give you a leg up on the competition when it comes to wow-ing the correct people. As well, I can offer a deeper understanding of the fundamentals acquired during GCSE, A-levels, and undergraduate biology.

In addition to theory in biology, I would also intrigue you with the wonders of principles in biological research methods such as immunofluorescence microscopy and automation of imaging. Such knowledge form the foundation of breakthrough developments required to progress the science as a whole. This stems from my firm belief that no science should be an isolated discipline.

Abbas's CV

Teaching experience
• Newcastle University
• Taught and supervised four second year BSc and one MRes student per year between 2014 and 2019. Teaching included in-depth mechanistic explanations into senescence and inflammation as a model of ageing, mechanisms and technicalities of wet laboratory methods as well as image and data analysis and the mathematics involved.
• Held a demonstrator position for 3 months in 2014, teaching basic laboratory methods to first year BSc students.
• Co-curricular coaching
• University of Edinburgh: Picked up target shooting in first year, taught students of various levels at an inter-university competition level by my fourth year. A few of these students went on to compete and achieve medals in these competitions.
• Others: Coached children aged 5 – 15 in Tae Kwon Do for 3 months a year for 3 years.


Education and Qualifications
• PhD, Ageing and Nutrition, Newcastle University, 2015 – 2019.
• Introduction to Learning and Teaching in Higher Education (ILTHE) certification, 2015.
• MPhil, Ageing, Newcastle University, 2014 – 2015.
• BSc (Hons) Cell Biology, University of Edinburgh, 2010 – 2014.
• IGCSE and A-levels, Cambridge Tutors College, Croydon, 2007-2010.
• A-levels: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics
• IGCSE: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, English Language, English Literature

Other relevant skills
1. Main skills:
• sterile laboratory techniques working with live cell and bacterial models
• standard laboratory techniques (eg RNA and protein work)
• state of the art fluorescence microscopy (concepts of fluorescence)
• basic chemistry (eg molecular mechanisms of acid and base reactions)
• first-hand laboratory experience with mass spectrometers, a core concept taught in high-school chemistry.
2. Coding skills:
• Experienced in Python coding and the logical and mathematical skills required – I am in the process of publishing a program to enable automation of an arduous image analysis method frequently employed by our scientists.
