Postgraduate lecturer/tutor offers assistance in Biology to high-school and uni students (Townsville)

About the lesson

I use a wide range of teaching approaches and methodologies depending on the size of the class, age groups, overall objective and curriculum required. I prefer a combination of direct teaching and learning by doing, to find the most appropriate strategy for the students. My sessions include three main components: lecturing, individual content analysis and comprehension, student participation and exercises. All done with a unique flair that ensures student engagement and motivation.
