Microbiology Master of research graduate teaching in the Plymstock and Plymouth area

Methodology

My teaching method is mainly demonstrating and going over any topic that you don't understand. I feel like the best way to learn something is to first learn the most simplified version of it and then add details and knowledge as you go on.

Background

Very reliable and flexible in hours. Worked as a lab demonstrator for the year whilst also studying the masters, this was for first, second and third years at university, helping students with practical work and processes they didn't understand

Rates
