I believe that great patience is required to teach any subject matter because if a student does not fully understand what is being taught the first time around, it is important to approach the same concept from as many different angles as is necessary to elicit comprehension.
I have a natural talent for teaching biology and I use memory tricks to help remember important bioinfo (e.g. I use George the CAT or GCAT to remember the 4 Nitrogenous bases of DNA (Guanine, Cytosine, Adenine and Thymine). By remembering George the CAT (GCAT) the student sees that the G is beside the C and the A is beside the T. This is the complementary base pairing rule of DNA.
I have a B.Sc. from the University of Toronto and 6 years of experience working as a Senior Lab Technician in Molecular Biology labs in Switzerland and Toronto. I taught visiting scientists the proper protocols for manipulating DNA. To name just a few of these techniqes, Gene Splicing, Gene Cloning, Foreign Gene insertion into Plasmid DNA using Restriction Enzymes and DNA Ligase. I have written a book entitled, "Roman's Notes on DNA" which I intended for use as a Grade 12 Biology primer to prepare students for final exams. I have also co-created a high school teaching game called, "CODON: The DNA Dice Game". In 1995, I re-formatted the presentation of the Genetic Code, a feat for which I received written accolades from Dr. James D. Watson and Dr. Francis H. Crick (I have the original letters they sent me).
No. My rate is a standard $20/hr for Biology Grade 8 through to Grade 12.
I have attached my resume earlier in this application process. I have a B.Sc. degree from the University of Toronto and my experience is listed in the field requesting academic and professional background.
