The winner of the Department’s Teaching Assistant Award 2012/13 is:
Martin Chapman – Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award
One Runner Up provided strong competition for Martin.
Christopher Hampson – Outstanding Teaching Assistant Runner Up
The winner receives a cash prize of £250 and both will be presented with certificates marking their achievements.
Below are just a few of the very positive comments received:
“He makes difficult things seem much more simple, and is very patient…. makes sure we understand everything before leaving us. He is a huge asset to King’s College. He is very motivating and when he has given revision lectures/normal lectures, he has been very clear, organised and produces fantastic slides”
“Very enthusiastic and clear teaching style when hosting small group tutorials. Has time for every question and willing to explain any detail or problem no matter how big, small, or silly the question may seem. Has gone above and beyond in hosting additional surgery classes before exams for revision or to cover material that a large number of students may have had trouble with in tutorials. Very approachable and makes learning certain things seem much less intimidating."
