About Me

Hi, I’m Lainey and I’m a third year PhD student at Cardiff University. My background is in Biochemistry and my research looks at the structure of insecticidal proteins to support their application as biopesticides. I’m an enthusiastic, hard-working and friendly individual with a passion for teaching!

My Experience

I have over four years tutoring experience working with primary and secondary aged children, including GCSE level. I also demonstrate and lecture at the university, so am well practiced at communicating complex ideas in a manner that is accessible for all. I regularly participate in careers events with local schools, with the aim of encouraging children to pursue careers in science, technology and maths. I’m also working towards accreditation as a fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Fellowship demonstrates a personal and institutional commitment to professionalism in learning and teaching.

My teaching approach is varied and always tailored to the individual. This means that my strategy varies by subject and student. Generally though, sessions include a combination of:

- Teaching new material, or recapping areas students are struggling with
- Discussing the wider applications of the material to help with memory retention and exams
- Exam specific advice, such as commonly asked questions, or definitions that might come up
- Exam practise (I have a bank of past exam papers for the subjects I teach)
- Regular feedback on how students are doing & what to work on, including weekly homework and feedback

Most importantly, I have a passion for the subjects that I teach and I try to pass that enthusiasm to my students too!
