Teaching


The following is a list of my teaching and lecturing experience. I have constantly received positive feedback on my teaching which helped me secure a part-time teaching fellow contract during my PhD. At the University of Otago, my teaching was positively rated by 77-83% of students across various criteria in 2013, increasing to 83%-100% of students in 2014.
