I am a biology tutor with a bachelors in human biology and toxicology, and a masters in the study of parasitology. Science is typically taught in an old and boring way, but I believe science should be accessible to everyone and it is time we break away from this stereotype.
I teach interactively by doing things such as creating animated videos, and using QuizUP and incentives to engage my students. I encourage my students to find their ways of absorbing new information, and I support their learning style.
I have been travelling the last few years, and have taught in so many surroundings with students from many different backgrounds, including small Ghanian schools and international schools in the sub Arctic. My students have always seen positive results in their academic assessments, and often find a passion for the subject when science is taught in a more modern engaging way than typically seen in a British classroom.
