Medical Particle Physicist offering in-person or online physics tutoring in Taranaki, NZ

Methodology

I prefer to use powerpoint presentations with a lot of practical examples and simple explanations of complex topics. I believe that worked examples are key to learning how to apply the theory of a curriculum to examination or practical work.

Experience

I have been teaching radiation and particle physics to a range of audiences via work for the last 5 years. General university and school level physics is also within my scope. I practically have 8 years experience in the field.

Mira's CV

Education

2011-2016 MSc in Clinical Science- Radiotherapy (1st Class Honours), University of Liverpool, UK
2011-2012 Master of Physics in Medical Physics (1st Class Honours), University of Leeds, UK
2008-2011 Bachelor of Science in Physics (1st Class Honours), University of Leeds, UK

Professional Soft Skills

Communication
• My current role involves teaching doctors, physicists and operators in their respective physics modules. During my past work as a teaching assistant, I greatly increased my communication skills and adaptability, spending time planning, giving lessons and running workshops. One week of teacher training with the TDA widened my abilities to communicate with respect to listener knowledge and age and further developed my own creative delivery techniques.

• My role in the Leeds University medical device trial included producing documentation which had to conform to either university or NHS guidelines and effectively communicate scientific procedures to a lay-person. I also had to design a trial protocol that would be used as a guide to lead the research team. I am confident defending my work and ideas through written report and oral presentation, with the ability to produce appropriate statistics.

• Fluent in English and Swedish, basic level of German.

Teamwork and Leadership
• I naturally take on a leadership role in project management, chairing and project managing several committees (currently SABR project group, brachytherapy research group, quality and safety, journal club). I am also a good enabling me to work in a team where all stakeholders, primarily but not limited to patients, are key participants.

• My contribution to the University of Leeds cardio-magnetometer trial required partnership with a team of researchers as well as external collaborators from other sectors. I was also in charge of a large part of the project, compiling a systematic review and project protocol, including supervising two other junior researchers.

Customer Service
• My background as a hospitality worker in all areas of hotels laid the foundations for my customer service skills, which have been refocussed by my co-design training. The concept has ingrained in me the need to include the customer in all quality improvement. Patient engagement events I have run include shadowing, interviews, focus groups and questionnaires.

Quality, Service Improvement and Safety
• I implemented a quality management system where none existed, centred round data collection and analysis for continual service improvement. This included implementing Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (American Association of Physics in Medicine, Task-Group 100) risk assessment prior to all major implementation or process change.

Problem Solving and Innovation
• Under-pressure problem solving is required in brachytherapy HDR theatre, where each patient case presents its own issues, both hardware-and software-based and in terms of achieving optimal dosimetry.
• Always try to streamline processes, e.g. wrote a script to write a report from TPS to text file to automate the dwell time and scaling checks for HDR patients.
• Lab work has developed my analytical approach to solving problems based on literature review, identifying issues and research questions, forming hypotheses, recognising important data and making logical decisions.
