Postgraduate researcher in cancer biology offering biology and biochemistry tuition up to BSc level

Methodology

Ideally I like to have a preliminary meeting with my students and discuss what it is they wish to build on based on their current needs, I then create the lessons based around this - bringing in real-world examples so that students can apply their knowledge. I have used worksheets, powerpoint presentations and quick-fire quizzes successfully in the past, depending on the student's learning styles.

Background

I have recently completed a PhD in cancer biology at the University of Manchester and will be starting a post doctoral scientist post at the University of Cambridge in a few months. I have a first class degree in Biochemistry and have supervised MSc students, undergraduates and work-placement students (aged 16-18). I have also tutored Biology and Chemistry at GCSE level and A level 1-1 and over Skype, both privately and with the not-for-profit company The Tutor Trust.
