Rated 5/5 by students

Science expert helps you effectively pass by learning and understanding. Barcelona based.

Biologist and philosopher, with experience in research as well as in undergraduate and graduate teaching (in particular ecology and philosophy of science). I offer support for learning at all educational levels, from elementary school to university. My approach to teaching / learning is maieutics, ie the Socratic method based on a dialogue (written or oral, as appropriate) that includes questions whose response process serves as guide for the learning process. My motto is that learning involves understanding.
Among the tools I use to facilitate comprehension are explanations, analogies and solving practical problems, always adapted to the individual student.

I teach biology. For the following level(s): primary school, early high school, year 10, , TAFE, , adult education.
I give lessons in person, at my home or the student's home.
I give lessons by Webcam.

Rafael's Experience

My experience as a teacher centers primarily on undergraduate education, but I have also given graduate courses and informal classes (conversation in English). I have also tutored final research works for students in the natural sciences, another way of teaching.
My strengths as a teacher come from my complex background in the sciences and humanities. Specifically, I have taught the following courses:

Philosophy of Science (undergraduate and graduate)
Philosophy of Environmental Sciences (undergraduate)
Research Methodology (undergraduate and graduate)
Techniques for the Analysis of Carnivore Diet (graduate)
Conversation in English (informal high-school level)

While studying biology, I assisted in the following classes:

Embryology (current developmental biology)
Anatomy and Human Physiology
Physical Anthropology
