PhD Student with great bench experience and communication skills gives lessons and help with presentations in Cardiff

Methodology

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.

Experience

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.
