Personal Description:

Hello, my name is Tiffany, I'm 24 and currently studying a BSc in Life Sciences. My passion for nature and biology has helped me obtain mostly distinctions in my bachelors degree, which I have almost completed.

Iā€™m interested in pursuing both postgraduate studies in life science education, and postgraduate scientific research at a later stage. I'm a caring person by nature and I like teaching, especially biology as I'm highly familiar with the subject and able to teach it very fluidly.

I'm down-to-earth, methodical, very logical and easy-going. Some of my interests are: animal welfare, photography, horse riding, gaming, aquatic ecology, microorganisms, venomous animal education, camping, herb and succulent gardening, cooking.

Tutoring Experience:

- I have informal experience tutoring high school students (friends and family members) in life sciences.
- I have experience in assisting both high school and university students online in a variety of subjects (chemistry, genetics, computer application technology, life orientation, statistics, zoology, environmental studies, math literacy.)
- I have often assisted others in exam preparation, project/task planning and execution, as well as term/semester scheduling. Having studied independently myself, I have experience in individually tackling formal studies and making a success of it.
- In university I have managed informal online and on-campus groups which assist fellow struggling students in a support network .

Tutoring Approach:

- I tutor according to individual learning styles and preferences of the people I'm working with.
- Helping a student setup a terminology list is often essential, particularly in biology and for those not studying in their mother tongue.
- Revision and reviewing of work done in class is often required. Being familiar with biology, I'm able to streamline this process to make it less time consuming.
- I teach and encourage the use of neat notes, colour coding, summaries and a students own personal definitions to simplify learning and ensure understanding.

Having done some home-schooling in high school, I have had a few tutors myself. I often draw on my own experiences as the student to avoid pitfalls. For example, tutors who are too intimidating, who explain above the appropriate difficulty level, who do the work for the student instead of teach, or tutors who lean over students with bad breath… (haha)
