My name is Amit, presently; I am working as a Postdoctoral Associate at the Kings College London. Before coming to Leeds, I was a Research Scientist at Martin-Luther University, Germany. I have completed my PhD degree in Biochemistry and Biophysics and master degree in Biotechnology. My own studies covered following topics at master level: Biology, Biochemistry, Analytical Biochemistry, Biophysics, Chemical Biology, Immunology, Cell Biology, Molecular Biology and Structural Biology. Being at various Universities, I presented my research work at national/international conferences and published in many internationally renowned journals written on my subjects.
My skills involve tutoring A-level and University Biology, and this includes assisting undergraduate (BSc) and Master’s students. I practice Biochemistry and Biophysics on daily basis, I can teach above-mentioned topics (A-level to Master). I have trained more than 10 bachelor and master students (as co-guide) and helped them with general academic skills development such as writing research methods, dissertations, preparing thesis viva-voce examination (expected questions and their answers etc.).
My key goal is to build confidence in my tutee. I will build a relaxing and friendly environment and try to understand the student’s basic problem and gaps in subject knowledge. I shall make sure student understand the basic concept of subject and build a strong foundation relevant to the subject being studied. I use a combination of question-answer session and often ask students to repeat in their words for the better understanding of a subject.
I usually carry my teaching materials and/or textbook along with me. I draw lots of diagram and explain based on them as ‘pictures with voice’ have the biggest impact on brain. I often ask students to start on a topic that gives an opportunity to understand their subject weakness. I am happy to teach at home at Wembley or close to Kings College London (using projector screen and whiteboard) or may travel locally ~ 3 miles (public transport).
