Hello! Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit and read my profile.
I am tutoring Biology and obtained a 39 in 2015 when I graduated. I am studying Science at the University of Melbourne now and wish to pass on my knowledge in the biological field which I have had the opportunity to develop in more depth during my first year of undergraduate studies and continue to develop in my degree. Making sure that students not only learn the content through-and-through but are also able to perform well in examination conditions and enjoy learning the subject.
Complimenting that, I have a passion for the other science subjects, as well as the application of biology in the medical and ethical fields. I hope that will fuel passion in my students to understand the content and excel due to their own interest in the subject. I want them to feel comfortable with the basic knowledge so that they can build upon it, knowing they have strong foundations.
My previous students have often complained about the methods of teaching and explanation of information in classes, with approaches only helping a certain type of learner (for example, auditory). I wish for my students to be primarily learning in the way that suits them best, with other forms of learning to compliment that. I want the student to find the avenue in biology which lead from their passions and build upon that to form a richer understanding.
I am well acquainted with the information on the Biology 1/2 and 3/4 courses such as:
- Cell biology; structure, function and purpose of cell membranes
- Taxonomy and categorising of organisms, including humans and their ancestors
- Applications of genetics in biology
- DNA manipulation and applications of biotechnology
- How to answer questions
- Effective methods of study
In off-hours, I am able to provide assistance to students via phone if they have questions, and can meet up for extra sessions if necessary or for SAC preparation. I can also provide supplementary notes and resources to help in different ways.
I live in Reservoir, so you are welcome to organise a place to meet in my area or in an area closer to you. I am available every day; see the times I am able to tutor and I will do my best to fit you in.
I hold a valid Working with Children’s Check.
I am only charging $40 per hour, and will do my best to help you achieve success this year. Contact me today to organise a time to help you succeed in Biology.
