About Dr Jessica Oura

My secondary/high school teaching experience includes Chemistry, Physics and Biology up to GCSE as well as GCE A level Biology at UK schools. I also have experience teaching the Caribbean, CXC and CAPE sciences using both online and traditional face to face teaching methods.

In addition to this, I have over 3 years experience working in private science tuition. I have worked with two of the most recognised British private tuition organisations, Fleet Tutors and Personal Tutors. I am currently managing and tutoring at Sciencesmarttutor providing online science classes. I currently hold a part time teaching post at The Faculty of Science and Technology, University of the West Indies, Trinidad and Tobago.

My other work experience beyond teaching, includes over 10 years as a PhD research scientist. My expertise include Immunology and Molecular Biology and were acquired in my positions as Postdoctoral Scientist at Glasgow University (UK) and MedBiotech (Uganda) as well as Fellowship at the University of Surrey (UK).

Testimonials:

"Regardless of what platform the classroom exists in, the teacher is crucial to a successful learning experience. The time I spent with Dr. Oura, having not studied science subjects in over ten years, were one of the best educational experiences I have had in a classroom. She is patient, understanding, excited about everything science and is truly an excellent example of an educator." -Lisa Marie

"Online tuition saves money and time. Just as effective as face to face" -Christie

Benefits of online tutoring "Individual attention, more visual aids and greater amount of online resources" -Irfaan.

"The online tuition allowed me to receive individual attention which helped me to better understand what was being taught. I would like to add that my experience with my tutor was a very enjoyable one and I learned a lot within a short space of time."
-Cassie.
