I'm a young, engaging teacher with a passion for understanding the world around me and helping others do the same. I completed my doctorate at the Royal Holloway University of London in 2020, studying the changing tectonics of Southeast Asia, and teaching students the basics of structural geology and computer-based geographic imaging systems like ArcMap.
I've given lectures, held seminars, led fieldwork teams, and hosted practical and assessment classes since I began working towards my PhD. I've taught a wide range of students, from experienced STEM students to secondary and primary school science-students; introducing brand new subjects as well as building on a students pre-existing experience.
The key to connecting with your studies and interests is learning how to LEARN - Earth is a fascinating place and it shouldn't be a chore to discover this. My first aims are to learn what a student engages with in a subject, then what they struggle with, and then find the way to bridge these points. Student engagement and friendship is encouraged, motivating questions and curiosity is mandatory, and providing a safe and uplifting environment to learn is the priority. It's okay to say 'I don't know.'
