I’ve spent 25 years in different research labs in 3 different countries enjoying my time doing work in biochemistry, tissue culture, biophysics and molecular biology at the bench. During the past 2 years I’ve taken on science tuition so I that I can pass on the spirit and rigour of the sciences to young students, to inspire them and motivate them. I’ve found that it’s the grounding in the basic principles that are essential to further work. In keeping with the aims of the new 9-1 specifications, I also enhance lessons with anecdotes and real life discoveries to engage young minds to have sufficient confidence to make discoveries for themselves in time to come.
My students typically gain confidence rather quickly and improve grades anywhere between 1 month to 6 months depending on the work they put in. Some of students are typically at the top of their class consistently, and the more able the student the more they’ll appreciate the perspectives and depth that I provide. I champion my students and believe every one of them can achieve top grades if the will is there.
