Personal Description:

Hello, my name is Luis. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Aberdeen working on oil spills in the deep sea. I am from Spain and I am very passionate about academia and learning in general.

My background is on oceanography, where I have covered ecology (biology), ocean dynamics and sediment geochemistry (chemistry). Data interpreting is part of my research work and it involves statistics of academic level and mathematical modelling.

I have collaborated with AU Science Magazine writing blog posts and editing articles. I am currently involved in a Research Development initiative to create a collaborative framework within the University of Aberdeen for researchers and students alike.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been a demonstrator at the University of Aberdeen since October 2014, where I assist in the following courses in two Schools:

School of Biological Sciences:
- Oceans and Society (SX1015)
- Animal Population Ecology (ZO3307)
- Ecology and Environmental Science (BI1511)

College of Natural and Computing Sciences:
- Chemistry for the Life Sciences (CM1020)
- Chemistry for the Physical Sciences (CM1021)

I have ample tutoring experience from when I was at University in Spain and I continue tutoring to this day in Aberdeen. I was also a collaborating student at University in Spain where I prepared practical work for students.

Tutoring Approach:

Where students find difficulties I like to break down concepts into simpler pieces that then assemble to represent the entire idea. I also think it is important to let the pupil know the purpose of these concepts in a wider context so that they can appreciate the value of learning the contents of the course.

I am an advocate of enjoying learning and always endeavour to make lessons as fun, interesting and interactive as possible.
