My approach to teaching is to find the connexions between the syllabus and the individual interests of the students. I will cover the whole area that the syllabus demands. My preferred teaching format is in a tutorial or seminar setting.
I am a Biologist with 25 years of teaching biological subjects (neuroscience, pharmacology, biochemistry, virology, psychology) in Higher Education which has led students to a range of successful Degrees. I am now offering my services as a tutor at all levels.
