Information about Peter
Given the current COVID-19 restrictions on Merseyside, I can only offer online tutorials.
I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2014 with a degree in veterinary science. I worked for 2 years in Colombia as a veterinary surgeon and English teacher. I completed a PhD in veterinary microbiology between 2016 and 2019 at the University of Liverpool. I now work as a resident in veterinary pathology at the same university. I`m available to tutor for Biology and Spanish up to A-level.
A-level biology has a broad syllabus but most of it is focused on cellular biology and how organ systems function. Luckily, my training as a vet has given me a good understanding of both and I continue to use what I was taught at A-level biology as the basis for the science I do every day. I`ve enjoyed my experience of tutoring and hope that I can show A-level students how their studies can be relevant in the future and transmit some of my enthusiasm for the subject to help them through their exams!
My PhD project requires me to use Python on a daily basis to analyse bioinformatic datasets. I have also undertaken formal training at the University of Liverpool in the Python programming language. As such, I would be able to tutor beginners who want to get started in the world of computer programming using Python.
Availability: In general, I prefer to do tutorials in the evening as I`m working at the university during the day. I`m available to do tutorials most weekends.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: I have previous teaching experience working as an English teacher in Colombia. Alongside my PhD studies, I worked as a demonstrator for veterinary students at the University of Liverpool and my current role at the university also involves teaching. Over the past two years I have had four A-level biology tutees and have very much enjoyed going back to teaching A-level biology. My work in clinics and research over the past few years have given me plenty of examples and learning tools that the textbooks don`t have! I have a great passion for science and speak Spanish fluently through my clinical work abroad.Contact this Tutor
