How would you describe your teaching style?
I don't have a teaching style. I believe it is essential to change how I teach to best suit the needs of the individual. It is important to use a variety of teaching and revision methods. My tutor room is equipped with a projector so that I can teach using Power Point, Animations and videos. I also have made a large range of 'hands-on' and active resources as this method helps improve understanding and recall.
What qualifications do you have?
HND in Biomolecular Science from the University of Liverpool BSc (hons) degree in genetics from the University of Liverpool PGCE in secondary education from the University of Cambridge Diploma in educational research (based on understanding and recall of knowledge through revision techniques) from Hope University.

What is your personal message to students?
I believe that every student has the ability to succeed and achieve their dream if they are shown how to learn and revise, a skill that is rarely taught at school. It is just about finding the best teaching methods to suit your learning and perfecting examination skills. I provide a nurturing environment as I truly believe that building confidence in your own ability is a large part of success.
