I am an ambitious science graduate who has recently completed a degree in BSc Biomedical Science at the University of Southampton, which mainly consists of the subjects Biology and Chemistry. I studied most of my life in a British International School in Spain, Marbella, therefore I know how to speak and write fluently in English and Spanish. I did IGCSE, obtaining an average grade of A/A* and for my final two years of school I undertook IB (International Baccalaureate), achieving a total of 39 points out of 45, with my higher level subjects being Biology, Chemistry, Business and Spanish. Due to my bilingual nature, flexible thinking and intellectual ability I find it easy and fulfilling to teach others and share my passion for sciences.

About my sessions

I believe that to help students capture as much information in an enjoyable manner, the teaching must be dynamic. First of all the learning objective must be stated to give the student an idea of the lesson's topic. I like explaining topics with images as visual memory can be a very powerful tool and I also recommend fun videos as they are not only visual but informative.

I believe that to help students capture as much information in an enjoyable manner, the teaching must be dynamic. First of all the learning objective must be stated to give the student an idea of the lesson's topic. I like explaining topics with images as visual memory can be a very powerful tool and I also recommend fun videos as they are not only visual but informative. Then, after teaching the set topic for the lesson, I provide and explain case studies or experiments so the students can view the practical side as well as the theoretical. This will also help them be up to date with new ideas and discoveries recently published, which will encourage their learning and enthusiasm for the subject. Finally, I will send the students some homework, either using the questions from the textbook or providing past papers for them to practice what they learned and for me to track their progress. Repetition and talking out loud are other learning techniques very useful, which I personally used when preparing for school exams. Therefore, if there is any spare time in the lesson, I tend to ask the students to try to explain some key aspects of the topic back to me, to see how much they have understood and this will also help me target the aspects they feel unsure and confused about.
