Chemistry teacher and PhD researcher (UoM) available to tutor high school and university students in Science related subjects. Teaching philosophy: strengthen fundamentals using problem based learning

Methodology

‘Chemistry is everything, and everything is Chemistry’ which is what makes the subject extraordinary. As a tutor of Science/Chemistry/Biology, I aim to impart knowledge with practical examples and to communicate Science in the most fundamental form so that students don’t merely learn for grades, but also develop a passion to build a career in the subject.

Background

Three years of experience as a Chemistry University Teacher at The University of Melbourne. Laboratory demonstrator and exam evaluator at The University of Melbourne. Anti-AIDS/cancer drug researcher at The University as part of my PhD course. PhD thesis submitted and awaiting approval.
