Master of Science Biotechnology graduate offering biology lessons in Palmerston North NZ

Methodology

I offer one on one tutoring to students at the undergraduate university level. I prefer to start where the student requires assistance and work towards their desired end goal. My style of teaching (which I use whilst learning on my own) includes reading the material/watching education videos and discussing it with the student to ensure they understand the subject. My main desire is to teach students to think critically about what they are learning.

Experience

I am a graduate student who studied Pre-medical Biology as well as Biotechnology (Microbiology) for my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. I previously offered tutoring lessons to my fellow students at university which helped me reinforce my own knowledge of the topics taught.
