Marine biology masters graduate student In Bristol ready to pass on knowledge!

Methodology

My 'teaching method' depends heavily on the student, who they are, how confident they are and what they're aiming to learn/struggling to understand. Firstly I want to understand the curriculum that the students themselves are studying at school so I can base my own tutoring to reflect this. I want to make sure each session helps students understand a key element of the topic being studied. I am a visual learner, and I often will help explain things by drawing them out and explaining them in detail, or maybe even using online resources and youtube videos to help further demonstrate certain ideas.

Background

I have an undergraduate degree from Plymouth (Marine biology and coastal ecology) and a masters from Essex (Tropical marine biology). I work as a marine biologist and dive master around the world part time, and also tutor biology students in my free time when I'm back at home in the UK.
