Map for Kevin (Dr)


Personal Description:

I am Kevin, a 35 year-old with a PhD from Newcastle University from the Institute of Cell and Molecular Biosciences in the area of chicken gut health. I currently work in a health economics consultancy and write systematic reviews for pharmaceutical clients based throughout Europe. Prior to my PhD I worked in scientific consultancy studying radiation damage in chromosomes. I have an undergraduate degree in Biochemistry and two MSc degrees (biomedical sciences and radiation biology). Over my career I have developed a love of learning and I love to instill this in others.

Tutoring Experience:

In total I have tutored both GCSE and A level students during the last three years. Last academic year I tutored 4 A level students in biology and have experience in both the OCR and AQA syllabus. I addition, I have tutored the combined sciences at GCSE (chemistry, physics, biology) for both AQA and OCR syllabuses.

At Newcastle University I have taught undergraduate biology in seminars and laboratory sessions. In addition, I have taught genetics to 6th form pupils enrolled on the Newcastle University Partner Schools programme. I have supervised numerous work experience students and was also involved in educational outreach at secondary school level. For example, I have helped organise and run GCSE and 6th form workshops in microscopy. Activities included cutting out and arranging chromosomes, drawing chromosomes, fluorescent microscopes and DNA extraction.

Tutoring Approach:

I endeavour to create an atmosphere of confidence in which students are able to ask for help and I will provide clear explanations. Although it is important to build solid background subject knowledge I hope to encourage and develop a deeper understanding and interest in science and through my research experience I can demonstrate how theory can be applied in the 'real-world'. I believe 1-2-1 teaching is a collaborative process between the tutee and tutor which allows the tutee to explore areas for improvement. At the end of every session we will summarise the tutees learning, how this relates to the syllabus and we will make a plan for the next session. I always try and ensure that students are happy with the task/questions before the next session.
