Recent biology Ph.D. graduate passionate about teaching living in Peterborough but willing to tutor online from a distance

Methodology

I am happy to teach at any level, whether it is elementary, high school, undergraduate, or graduate students. As a recent Ph.D. grad I have been through all levels of education and can tailor my teaching depending on the level of the student.

I believe that the most important thing in a teacher student relationship is communication. I like to make sure that I have a clear idea of what the student's needs are, and do my best to tailor my teaching style to the needs of the student. Whether that means focusing on fundamentals or generating mnemonics or other memory devices to conquer tricky pathways I am happy to adapt my teaching style to the specific needs of the student.

Background

Dear Perspective Client,

As a recent Ph.D. graduate in Biology, I have spent much of my time in the world of biology. I have extensive experience working with students teaching biology both as a Teaching Assistant and a senior graduate student. I have taught several core biology concepts as a TA, and as senior member in the lab I was often responsible for mentoring undergraduate students, as well as guiding fellow graduate students to learn the theory and practical skills required to be successful in my lab.

Graduate school has given me the opportunity to develop a variety of skills. Over the course of my degree I was given the opportunity to give several seminars both locally and internationally at conferences, which gave me the opportunity to develop skills in both communication and professionalism. I have also developed the ability to truly reach my audience through teaching pre-lab talks as a Teaching Assistant. And, as my supervisor was often away for the lab in his role as chair of the department, I learned to be independent and self-driven in completing my projects.

In addition to the experience I have gained as a graduate student, I also heavily participated in peer tutoring both as an undergraduate student and in high school. In undergrad I generated extensive study guides for my fellow students and led group study sessions in preparation for midterms and exams. In high school, I ran an online forum for my senior biology classes and tutored mathematics with successes as high as a 20% improvement in grades from midterm to final.

I am able to be flexible in my hours and would be happy to maintain contact through email between tutoring session. I welcome the opportunity for a personal interview and can assure you that my spirit, initiate and innovation will be of significant value to the success of the student.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely,

Trish
