My teaching methodology is to make it simple and fun, as microbiology is a vast subject. As an example for younger students I usually have stuffed microorganisms to teach about shape, and have a visual support this is something that I like to use for all my students either with videos schemes and animations. I'm a very friendly and patient tutor as well as very organized.
I have a degree in Immunology and Microbiology, also have experience as a clinical scientist.
Currently I am a PhD student and my main project is about the microbe-plant interactions. I've taught children year 7 and 8, and undergraduate students in lab rotations, most of them succeeded in their academic studies.
