PhD in Cell Molecular Biology Biochemistry with 10 years of teaching experience

Methodology

I'm teaching since 10 years now. I give lessons to undergraduates & graduate university students. I base my lessons on curriculum, syllabus & published current research articles. I use video, power-point slides, online materials, journal group discussion related to syllabus, quiz & games mode of studying.

Background

I'm teaching students for 10 years along with my research. I taught genetics, cell, molecular biology, biochemistry, general biology. Taught college students in group of 10 students per class. All students acquired B+ to A+ in courses. I'm friendly and encouraging for students and I try to display the best in each student.
