Molecular Biologist teaches you the Science of Life (Biology) with a bit of Chemistry up to university level in Edinburgh

Methodology

My teaching method is very simple, we identify the topics you need to learn. Then, I prepare them as a lecture for you and finally, we go through a series of practical exercises that will allow me to see how much have you learned and identify if there is something we need to reinforce.

Experience

I am Molecular Biologist with a Master's in Synthetic Biology and Biotechnology for the University of Edinburgh. I have one-year experience teaching Biology and Chemistry to high school and secondary students who have successfully passed exams and achieved good marks in both courses. As part of my professional experience, I have worked in the laboratory in different research projects that involve the use of Microbiology and Molecular Biology techniques.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £14
