Personal trainer, Marine Biologists, helping boost knowledge in Science, sport and fitness

Methodology

I've been teaching for over 5 years, mainly Scuba diving and fitness training. Let me tell you, that teaching someone how to scuba when they are afraid of water is very tricky and will only work with confidence and trust.

Experience

I have a Masters degree in Marine Biology, which I used for teaching professional Divemasters Reef ecology and species identification. It requires teaching physics chemistry and biology to potential instructor candidates. Preparing them for the grueling practical and theory exams
