MSc qualified scientist with biology tutoring experience and experience with teaching a wide variety of age groups

Methodology

My teaching methodology is to ensure that the student is engaged and entertained in the lesson, drawing on my experience as a stand up comic in college, as a bored student does not retain information. I do this by trying to be as light-hearted as possible when explaining concepts, and using plenty of references to the students interests, so that the facts and concepts taught are much more memorable. I also prioritise going slow and ensuring that students fully understand a topic rather than trying to cover as many topics as possible in a lesson, as I would rather have a student fully understand a concept before they vaguely understood 5 of them.

Experience

I am a Zoology graduate who also holds an Msc in Marine Biology. Throughout my Masters programme I taught swimming and junior lifeguard classes of up to a wide variety of age groups and would use examples from marine biology to explain swimming concepts or human biology to explain first aid. I also tutored a family friend for his Leaving Certificate Biology examination and I have worked for University College Cork as a Lab Demonstrator instructing freshman biology students on how to complete their practical assignments.

Work Experience

July 2018-March 2020: Swim teacher with Dartry Health Club

As a swim teacher my duties involve teaching classes of children ranging in age from 3 to 16 years of age, as well as private lessons for both children and adults. I have also helped in teaching a lifeguard course for 8 to 12-year olds which involved instructing them on lifesaving skills and First Aid.

September-October 2019 Lab demonstrating with University College Cork

This role involved helping first year science students with their lab practical assessments by instructing them on how to use microscopes and explaining genetic concepts while teaching them how to perform genetic pedigree analyses and answering their questions throughout the practical. I also supervised them taking an exam at the end of the practical assessment and graded the exams.

March-September 2020 Covid-19 Lab Technician with Enfer Group

This job involved preparing Covid-19 test samples for testing by matching details on documents to those on sample tubes containing swabs, and then pipetting quantities of sample to lysis buffer tubes in a fume hood, as well as preparing plates of sample tubes for analysis in PCR labs. The role also included preparing Virkon disinfectant by measuring out chemical powders, cleaning around the lab, and supervising new staff in the lab and demonstrating correct lab procedure.

September 2020-February 2021 Covid-19 Data Analyst with Enfer Group

This role involved analysing result files generated from PCR run procedures performed on Covid-19 test samples and identifying any issues with PCR experiment runs. The job also involved liaising with the lab team to ensure that samples were re-tested if needed to ensure accurate results, generating data files using the LIMS system and reporting files to the NVRL.
