I think Biology is easier to learn when students can engage with the content rather than simply listening to a lecture or reading information. So I teach using more of an interactive method and actively encourage discussion. A typical lesson would be going through the content - paying extra attention to any concepts which are more complex and encouraging you to ask questions. I would then typically go through some exam/essay questions together - eventually building your confidence up until you are able to complete these independently. Learning is more effective in small doses so I typically break up the syllabus into topics and ensure that the previous topic is understood before moving onto the next one. I tend to explain concepts visually but can adapt this based on how you learn best. I think colours, pictures and diagrams help to organise the information you need and make revision easier. Where possible, I also try to relate what we are learning to the latest research so you can see that what you’re learning has an impact and what the real-life applications of the knowledge is.
I am a postgrad student studying towards an MSc in Cancer Research and Molecular Biomedicine. My undergraduate degree was in Biomedical Science and I got a first class honours. I spent my gap year last year teaching and tutoring both primary and secondary school students. I also mentored younger students while I was an undergrad.
