Second year PhD student in my second year of BioMechanical Engineering looking to teach any of the STEM subjects.

Methodology

From over 16 years of education I have realized that the best way to learn most of mathematics and science is to constantly do practice questions. This provides three key benefits:
- Firstly, it forces the student to constantly test their knowledge. This will make them aware of the extent of their knowledge and will either boost confidence, relaxing them making exams a lot less daunting; or it will be a bit of a push, motivating them to put more time into learning.
- Secondly, it shines a glaring light at the gaps in their knowledge making it easier to rectify the problem.
- Finally, it provides the students with the techniques needed to logically address and solve a problem, this has been a core skill that I constant employ.

The method of teaching will change from student to student and from subject to subject, but going through problems one step at a time, helping at first but slowly retreating will give excellent results for most students.

Background

I am currently doing a PhD in BioMechanical Engineering, focussing on Hip replacements. I have a 2.1 BEng in Mechanical Engineering with a high first in my final year. I have A-level's in biology, Physics and Maths (specializing in mechanics).
I have completed the ILTHE qualification at Newcastle university (Introduction to Learning and Teaching for Higher Education) and hope to take the next step in the course this year.
I have privately tutored a second year undergraduate in computer aided design.
I have assisted a professor by demonstrated a mathematical programming software to over 100 second year undergraduates for the 5 months.

Alex's CV

Education
2017-Present PhD BioMechanical Engineering
I am currently in my second year of the PhD, I mainly work on total hip replacements. I was picked up directly from my BEng rather than doing a masters due to my ability to self-teach, independence and motivation.
2018 ITLHE (Introduction to teaching and Learning for Higher Education

2014-2017 BEng Mechanical Engineering (2.1)
Relevant modules: BioEngineering, Professional skills, Mechanics, Engineering Maths, Design and Manufacturing, Electrical engineering, Law and Accounting, Thermo-Fluid dynamics, Material Science.
• My Professional skills have developed and improved during my time at Newcastle University through giving frequent presentations and producing well written and structured reports.
• My third year individual project involved me investigating how the magnitude of a force and the angle that it was applied though affected the shear deflection of a ProDisc spinal implant. In order to achieve this I read extensively around the topic reading all relevant research papers I could access; this allowed me to make informed and justified decisions for all parameters of the test rig that would be manufactured. Once the test rig was designed and manufactured I proceeded to perform all appropriate tests needed. The project taught me how important a logical approach is when undertaking a research project. It also aided my decision to go into a research position in the field of bioengineering once finishing university.
• Successfully working in teams is crucial to performing well and achieving goals. Over the past three years, team work has been an integral part of my education. This year I took on the lead role in a project working with an external company; using project management skills, I set milestones for each aspect of the project, ensuring that progress was maintained and we remained professional. In the second year my team and I designed a bridge within certain parameters and then manufactured it. Although my theoretical design had the best mass to strength ratio, we made a team decision to advance with an alternate design as it was easier to manufacture.

Experience
December 2017 –March 2018 Teaching and Demonstrating
• Working with a professor I have demonstrated and taught mathematical programming to over 100 second year undergraduates.

March 2018 Private Tutoring
• In March I tutored an undergraduate student in second year in computer aided design as he was dropping behind in class. After only 4 hours of face to face tutoring he was ahead of the class and very proficient at using the software.

June 2016 – August 2016 Newcastle University Student Summership
• I have become confident working in a laboratory utilising a large range of equipment including; a Scanning Electron Microscope, Freeze dryers and Tensile and Compression test rigs.
• Independent working and self-motivation was key during this placement. I was responsible for time management and prioritising my tasks to complete the necessary research required.
• The experience showed me that I am extremely motivated in anything I do. Once I understood the theory I researched further articles surrounding the subject. Once I had collected the experimental data, I spent time processing and understanding it so that I could convey the findings in a manner that a reader could easily interpret and be confident in the conclusions that I drew.

October 2013 – February 2014 Volunteer, MENCAP
• Communication was an essential element of this role. I developed my communication skills and could converse effectively with people with varying needs.
• My ability to deal with responsibility grew very fast during this time as it was my first experience of being in charge of a group of people who depended on me. I am now confident that I can take the appropriate responsibility and manage a team effectively.
__________________________________________________________________________________
Achievements
• During high school and college, I was vice captain of my local rugby team where I played a very active role coordinating the team across the pitch.
• I am a keen hiker and enjoy pushing myself whenever I can. Over the past couple of years Ii have managed to climbed Mount Rinjani in Indonesia, which is half the size of Mount Everest. I have also climbed Ben Nevis and walked Hadrian’s Wall in four days.
__________________________________________________________________________________
Additional Skills
• IT Skills- Very skilled in Excel, Word, MATLAB, SIMULINK and Autodesk Inventor. Also learning Python code.
• Circuits- I have started working with more advanced circuitry with an Arduino Uno this year.
