Masters of Biomedical Science student wanting to help others achieve their goals in science at any level.

Methodology

I look to explain concepts in ways that students can relate to. There is no point reiterating the words in the book that have no meaning. It is important to learn something about the student, and create lessons/teaching materials relevant to them.

Background

Hi there,

I am currently studying a Masters in Biomedical and Health Sciences at Monash (> 90 WAM) with my main research interests in Neuroscience, currently investigating the use of machine learning algorithms to classify brain scans of MND patients.

I am passionate about teaching science and would love to get into a teaching role at some stage either at university or senior high school level.

During my undergrad I tutored about 10 students in Biology, Chemistry, Maths, English and General Science from years 7-12, and received great feedback for my ability to explain concepts in different ways and connect with the students. I believe learning concepts is the best way to learn, particularly in science.

My strengths would lie in any kind of biology, statistics, and scientific writing, but also have highly developed maths and programming skills.

Perfect! Highly recommended. i contacted James in urgent need with 3rd year undergrad Biochemistry assistance- a few weeks prior to my final exam. James was proficient in communication and had a very flexible schedule. during our sessions, James effectively highlighted my lacking areas and began strengthening them immediately. James had unparalleled methodology techniques, he thoroughly took the time to repeat areas that were of confusion, he used various analogies and examples followed by questioning to ensure my understanding. After our lessons, James would take his own time to write up summaries of what we had covered, and formulated questions to aid with my revision. I’m so grateful that James took me on, I gained so much more confidence with this unit. I think with James' in-depth knowledge and extensive teaching experience, he is very capable in assisting any level. Thank you endlessly for your help James!

James's response

Zena seems very motivated to do well. To improve she could have more self confidence in her ability as she often doubts her answers.
