I am 28 years old, and I finished my PhD in Molecular Bacteriology & Infection at Imperial College in London in 2016/2017. I embarked on a 1+3 funded studentship, in which I completed a Master's Degree in Biochemical Research and a three year PhD. I gained a First Class Honours degree in Biomedical Science in 2011. I am now a medical writer and an Associate Lecturer/ Module Tutor on an e-learning Master's course for Infection Control for the University of Essex.
I am currently available in the evenings and weekends, and also for online tuition.
I have adequate experience in being able to teach others, in the form of tutoring, presentations and seminars. My qualification involved giving presentations and oral examinations, which requires explanation of scientific content to different audiences. I am also regularly supervised undergraduate and masters students on their final year research projects which involves day-to-day in lab supervision, discussion and report reviews, as well as demonstrating in undergraduate practicals at my university. I also have experience proof-reading and editing reports and written work. I have been a freelance tutor for an online university Master’s course in Infection Control where I cover Medical Microbiology and Immunology, Applied Microbiology and other Health courses, in which I run seminars, discussion forums and provide feedback on assignments to students (4 years). I am also a dissertation supervisor, where I provide support and feedback from start to finish of the dissertation process.
I believe that I am able to adapt to the different teaching requirements of the individual, and confidently help the individual to understand the depths of knowledge that they require for their qualification. I am happy to teach in the form of example exam paper questions, mind maps, essays, or any way the individual feels is best for them. A variety of teaching techniques will allow the individual to become more adaptable and engaged with learning for their particular qualification. My teaching philosophy focuses on encouraging the individual to think for themselves and have the confidence to challenge and question should they not understand; but whilst enjoying learning along the way.
I am also able to provide tuition via Skype or online.
