« Saira is not only brilliant at what she does but also very helpful and friendly. She teaches with patience but keeps you on your toes too, which I believe is imperative to engage the student. She would go out of her way to help me out when I needed to pass my biology course at university and has helped all her students get top marks in a matter of just a few months. Always a fun, informative and exciting session with her! »

A postgraduate pharmacy student: specializing in cancer biology and therapeutics, offering high school biology classes!

Methodology

My teaching method is very simple; depending on who I teach! I always try to explain a concept to a student with examples from their daily life, which they can relate to. Especially whilst teaching high school biology I try to bring pop culture references and examples of sci-fi films that correlate to a certain concept. This helps students in exploring ideas and asking relevant questions which they otherwise would not have done.
I tend to use pictorial representations or animations where necessary to explain certain concepts and am always open to questions. I give short pop quizzes so that students can evaluate where they stand and what areas require attention.

Background

I am doing a postgraduate graduate degree in cancer biology from Cardiff university's school of pharmacy and am a vice chancellor's excellence scholarship holder. I did my undergraduate in biotechnology and taught high school biology at a local school for a year. Before that, I did pre-medical and took sciences in my GCSEs. I have always been an A grade student; rest assured I have proficiency in my subject and in coming up with creative explanations to teach a tough concept! Almost all of my students achieved good grades in their exams and found my lessons fun!
