As part of my Ph.D. work at VCU, I decided to teach an Introductory Biology laboratory. This was my first experience teaching in class and I absolutely loved it. My students initially thought I was hard, but as time went on they realized that my style of teaching was beneficial to them and they did well in the lab class.
I then taught lab techniques while doing fellowship at the NIH to summer students and thoroughly enjoyed it. My students loved the way I explained things to them in detail and also the fact that I pushed them to being independent but being there for them when needed.
I obviously do not have a strong tutoring experience, but I know I have a penchant for the biological sciences and skills in reading and writing, which would allow me to impart this knowledge to a student who needs the extra help. Please don't hesitate to contact me when required.
