I believe in a hands-on, eyes open approach to teaching, and try to make the lesson relevant to the real world. A biology lesson would be walking through a forest or park and observing the different plant forms and structures. An astronomy lesson would be looking through a telescope or watching the night sky.
I currently tutor in Introductory Astronomy and Astrobiology (Unit: PHYS1160) for the Physics Department, University of NSW. I have also taught Materials Science & Remedial Mathematics to TAFE Engineering and Trades students, and Literacy & Numeracy to primary school students.
