Personal Description:

Hello, my name is Luis. I have over 8 years of experience in tutoring and can provide tutoring references as far back as 2009 on request. I am a PhD student at the University of Aberdeen working on oil spills in the deep sea. I'm Spanish and very passionate about academia and learning in general.

My background is on oceanography, where I have covered ecology, microbiology and genetic (biology), ocean dynamics, analytical chemistry 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 ample tutoring experience (~8 years) starting when I was at University in Spain and I continue to this day in Aberdeen (and sometimes internationally via **Contact Detail Removed**!).

I was a collaborating student at University in Spain where I prepared practical work for students. 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:
- Statistical Analysis Of Biological Data (BI3010)
- 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)

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.
