My name is Amit. I am Leeds based tutor. I have worked as Research Associate at the Imperial College London. Before coming to Imperial, I was a Research Scientist at Martin-Luther University, Germany. I have completed my PhD degree in Biochemistry and Biophysics and a master's degree in Biotechnology. My own studies covered the following topics at the 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), Master’s (MSc), and Ph.D. students. I have teaching experience of more than 15 years. I practice Biochemistry and Biophysics on a daily basis, I can teach the above-mentioned topics (A-level to Master). Besides teaching, I have trained more than 20 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.).
You may wish to contact me if you are struggling to understand the classroom lectures (slides), especially while online/e-learning.
My key goal is to build confidence in my tutee. I will build a relaxing and friendly environment. Being in teaching for a long (>15 years) time, I understand the student’s basic problems and gaps in subject knowledge. I shall make sure the students understand the basic concept of the subject and build a strong foundation relevant to the subject being studied. I use a combination of question-answer sessions and often ask students to repeat in their words for a better understanding of a subject.
I usually carry my teaching materials and/or textbook along with me. I draw lots of diagrams and explain based on them as ‘pictures with a voice’ have the biggest impact on the brain. I often ask students to start on a topic that gives them an opportunity to understand their subject weakness. I am happy to teach at home at Wembley, South Kensington and nearby or may travel locally ~ 3 miles (using public transport and travel cost etc need to be added).
