Retired clinical nurse specialist with 16 years of experience providing biology lessons in Limerick.

Methodology

While I have experience teaching adults and children, my usual audience is from secondary school students to professional (medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, etc.) bachelor students. I like to get my students engaged and use a problem-based learning approach to help them best learn the subject material in a practical way that has the most meaning to the student.

Experience

I am a retired military clinical nurse specialist with 24 years of teaching experience, and have taught adult and child groups of up to 30 across the globe. Many of my students have become physician assistants and physicians.
I have significant experience in health care, as both a paramedic and as nurse, and both in peace and at war.
