Computational neuroscientist who is also a qualified secondary school teacher in mathematics, physics, general science and research skills.

Methodology

I have a first class honours in science (psychology) in which I also studied mathematics physics and chemistry. I have followed this degree with 30+ years as a computational neuroscientist and a Graduate Diploma in Education (Secondary). My research also allows me to practice my mathematics and physics, applying them to modelling human memory, learning, cognition and abstract thought.

Background

I have about ten years experience tutoring years 9-12 mathematics, physics and chemistry .. both small classroom and one-to-one. During that period, I periodically substituted for unwell tutors of years 7-8 mathematics. This experience occurred after a year's teaching as a classroom science teacher.
