I know there are many tutors on here that you may consider. If you choose me, I guarantee that I will put all my energy toward teaching you Life sciences and anything relating to the field that may in

Methodology

my main approach is to encourage students to be curious. I think that information is best learned when one has to think about the topic, not when it is simply memorized from the textbook.
I approach topics in a logical way and try to make the information feel relevant to the students life. I always try to include examples, videos and images wherever i can in order to make the lessons more interesting.

Background

I am a BSc in Biodiversity and Ecology graduate. I completed a post graduate certificate in education and spent 3 months teaching biology and maths literacy at a high school in somerset west. i have volunteered to teach children about sustainability and love for nature at an outdoor event and have spent 2 months teaching biology to an 11 year old girl who is unable to attend school in South Africa.

I am passionate about education and believe that it is one of the most important tools humanity has to create a better world.
