Dr Rob's Tutoring Profile
Qualified teacher with a PhD in Human Physiology from the University of Bath, with expertise in exercise & nutrition.
- University of Bath
I am a secondary school Science teacher and have experience teaching Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I completed a PhD in Human Physiology at the University of Bath and during this time I had the opportunity to teach on a variety of undergraduate modules including Sport and Exercise Science. I love helping other people to understand topics that they are struggling with and I pride myself on having good communication skills.
I have experience teaching in a secondary school for Biology, Chemistry and Physics at KS3 and KS4.
At the University of Bath I tutored first year to third year students on the Sport and Exercise Science course in lab classes (~30 students) and seminars (~ 5-10 students), covering a range of topics linked to human biology and physiology. My responsibilities included the design and implementation of classes, producing presentations and multimedia resources to supplement practical demonstrations. I was involved with marking coursework and providing feedback to ensure effective learning for future examinations. I also worked with individual students outside of classes, answering questions about coursework assignments or problem-solving from the group lessons. In recognition of my teaching ethos, I achieved the award of Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
