About Me

Hey there!

I am Xanthippi, a Greek M.Sc. student at Copenhagen Business School (CBS).
I have a B.Sc. in Biology, earned by National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. My Bachelor's studies covered a wide range of fields of this fascinating science. More specifically, I learned about Plant and Animal Physiology, Zoology, Genetics, Microbiology, Evolution, Molecular Biology and many others. This way, thoughout those years, I acquired a well-rounded picture of Biology.
After my studies in Athens, I wanted to find a way to apply my knowledge and produce tangible results. This is why I have freshly started a master's programme in Bioentrepreneurship, in Copenhagen.
Furthemore, it is the right time for me to start sharing my knowledge with other people who want to explore the field of Biology or delve a little bit deeper into it.
Through my experience as a Science Communicator, in Athens Science Festival and Researcher's Night, I discovered my love to communicate scientific topics with others!
I also confirmed my belief that the best way to convey a complex concept is through visual aids and real-life examples. Thus, these are the teaching techniques I will integrade into my classes.
Finally, I believe that, as with any human interaction, teaching should be carried out with the active contribution and active listening of both the instructor and the student.
I can't wait to meet my next eager-to-learn student.
Looking forward to hear from you!!

A Moment of Science Please! Science on Finger Tips!
I am Pragya! I graduated in Biochemistry (Honours) from Daulat Ram College, University of Delhi. I further went on to pursue my master’s degree in Medical Biochemistry from Jamia Hamdard, Delhi. I am currently pursuing Doctorate in Biological Sciences from Queen’s University, Belfast, United Kingdom. During all these years I realised that the classes I appreciated most were not necessarily the topics I was most interested in, rather it were the professors who made the classes enjoyable and interesting. All these professors had one thing in common, they were always engaging and comprehensible when teaching and moreover were willing to go an extra mile when asked for additional help and clarification. I will carry the same approach and knowledge to my tutoring sessions and do everything to make learning a pleasant experience. I use lesson plans in which I usually introduce the topic in a fun and creative way, then explicitly teaching the material. The biggest strategy I strictly adhere in my sessions is “Revise the old; learn the new”. Of course, this method can be adjusted based on the subject and student’s individual needs. I currently demonstrate on module for biomedical science and in total have eight years of tutoring experience. I want to benefit the students I work with best of my capabilities therefore, I am open to any additional resources and suggestions from both students and parents. I am easy to reach and always provide fast responses. Feel free to contact me with any additional questions or to schedule a lesson!

Biology lessons for all abilities with an experienced tutor
Biology is an important science that many students choose to study at GCSE, IB and University levels. My aim is to help students who are either struggling or trying to excel in the subject to have the best chance at reaching their goals. I am a very visual learner and tend to teach my classes in the same way. I always start by asking the student the areas they want to work on and where possible providing a textbook for reference if they do not have one. I like drawing diagrams to explain concepts and will often repeat ideas in several ways until I am sure the student is fully comfortable with it.

Ines Fernandez
Biology lessons for students up to (and including) A-levels
Up until the 19th century Biology seemed to be the forgotten science; while Chemistry and Physics were making revolutionary discoveries, Biology was lagging behind. However, Biology finally picked up speed with Darwin's Theory and it's now a very popular science amongst students. While Biology can often seem daunting, with my classes I aim to explain and help those students who, like Biology in the past, feel like they are lagging behind :). Depending on what the student needs, I can help them go through what they have done in class, help with their homework or help them keep ahead! I might occasionally send some homework to make sure the knowledge is sinking in.

Maxime
Help and deepening in Cellular / Molecular Science and Biology.
I am currently a doctoral student at CHU Laval and you will find on my personal profile all the details concerning my university career. My courses are mainly focused on life sciences and biology. I am able to cover all aspects of cellular and molecular biology (ex: transcription, translation, nucleic acids, gene repression, recent techniques in molecular biology, cloning, ...) and I adapt according to the demand of the 'student. Thanks to my background, I am also able to provide an expert opinion on the theme of the intestine-brain-microbiota axis (metagenomics, homeostasis of the intestinal bacterial flora in physiology and pathology, relationships between neurodegenerative diseases and deregulation of the microbiota) . My current field of expertise allows me to give very advanced courses and at the forefront of current knowledge on the themes of neurodegeneration in particular on Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. The first course will focus on an assessment of the student's shortcomings and needs in order to provide the best possible experience. My courses have as main objective to give birth to the student: - a complete and perfect understanding of the courses given - a strong critical mind - scientific reasoning It is also possible to make "à la carte" courses where you warn me before what you want to see in a very short period of time. This format is ideal for students who need answers to specific questions and who want, for example, to work on exam papers. Whatever the course format chosen, I provide a worked PDF which serves as support for the various courses covered or to support the answers to the questions that students ask me.

Sajad Ahmad
Are you struggling with biology for IGCSE O level AS and A levels
Biology is study of life ie; plants animals fungi protoctists bacteria and viruses. Biology is one of the main subjects taught almost in every university. To clear board exams of Cambridge University I am teaching biologyup to class 12th. Thank-you

Sunaina
Basic / Advanced Biology and Chemistry using exciting, easy to understand graphical methods
I have a passion for science, specially life science. After having finished my masters degree in Biotechnology and worked as a molecular oncology researcher for 3 years, I now wish to share my passion for this field with budding, curious minds. In this class, based on the requirement of the student, I will focus on basic or advanced life science topics such as-molecular biology, cell biology, biochemistry and bio analytical techniques. If you are in school and need your basics covered, I can teach basic biology and chemistry in the simplest manner. I can understand these subjects can come off as quite dry to many students, but hopefully my extreme enthusiasm in this field will change that for you. Hope to see you soon.

Cellular and human biology to better assimilate the action of natural medicines
Better understand the mode of action of natural medicines through cell biology, biophysics, biochemistry, bioenergy, electro-magnetic, and nano-hydrology - in Geneva and online. Teaching methods: • Online course on the “Moodle” platform with series of interactive exercises, and numerous illustrations and multimedia references. • Individual or small group lessons (maximum 10 students) • In face-to-face mode in Geneva (in accordance with the rules of distance) • Practical exercises in collaboration with the Espace Formation Nuageghana in Grand-Lancy Typical course of a course: I follow the thread of my interactive course material, illustrating with examples (diagrams, videos). I systematically deepen and clarify the links with anatomy, physiology, pathology and parasitology. But above all, I try to shed light on the action of alternative therapies (acupuncture, homeopathy, reflexology, etc.) And, as I am an enthusiast, with the statement rich in verb and gesture - there is therefore little risk of getting bored. Approximately every 25 minutes, I engage in a dialogue with the student, to take the pulse of the assimilation of the material. Between lessons, the student is invited to complete the interactive exercises online. In addition, I invest myself fully and support the student in their journey. Who are my courses for: Those who are oriented towards the practice of natural medicines. People who seek to understand the action of natural therapies, such as acupuncture, bio-energy, magnetism, both at the molecular, cellular, tissue and systemic level, as well as at the level of the vital field, of the chakras of the bio -photons and Kundalini. Prerequisites: A good level of general knowledge. Basic knowledge of English. A recent model computer connected to the Internet.

Maria
Biology, Includes: Test Preparation and Discussion
The course is open to all students. My goal is to help others have a better understanding in cell biology, cell physiology and molecular biology. When necessary certain homework will be assigned. Also, I am willing to share pdf files of different related books that I consider helpful. Study load will be approximately 2-3 hours a week depending on the level of the student. Topics to be discussed include mostly: Carbohydrates, Lipids, Nucleic Acids, Proteins, Cell Membranes, Cell Cycle and Cell Division, Cancer, Cell Signalling, Physiology, Homeostasis, Neurons and Basic Genetics (mutations and regulation of gene expression). Periodic progress reports will be available for everyone. For the students that are interested in broader topics, discussion including applied laws to relevant biology topics, such as patents, or ethical issues will be encouraged. The student is encouraged to choose the relevant topic they wish to be discussed in each class. For this course, good books for extra assistance are: The Science of Biology by Savada et al. (any edition) or Biology The Science of Life by Nowicki.

Tahira
