Personal Description:

Hi there! I am a final-year PhD Candidate in Environmental Toxicology. I am passionate about clear and straightforward science communication and I believe that perseverance and curiosity are the key to success!

I have studied environmental science with a strong focus on environmental chemistry and toxicology - that is, the way chemicals behave in the environment and affect both human health and that of the ecosystem as a whole.

Tuition Experience:

I have extensive experience tutoring students of all ages, from primary to postgraduate level. I am highly dependable and dedicated to my students' success!

My last 7 years have been spent learning about cell biology, DNA damage and repair, cancer development and all the related processes. Most recently, I have successfuly led classes on earth systems, biological systems, and climate change adaptation in the university setting.

Tutoring Approach:

I like to start by finding out what are the issues the student is experiencing and where he/she is in relation to the particular curriculum (class material).

When a student experiences issues with understanding a significant portion of the curriculum, I like to begin with basics so that we can further build on these foundations and focus on more complex concepts. There is no place for blind memorisation of terms - one needs to comprehend the principles behind them.

When a student approaches me with a specific problem, but otherwise has a pretty solid understanding of the material, we can direct our focus on the specifics. Important to remember is: There are no stupid questions! :) The more one asks, the more one ultimately knows and understands… and hopefully also remembers.
