Chemical Engineering 4th year, experience with teaching and tutoring, offering Chem Eng, Chemistry & other tutoring in Sheffield.

Methodology

Firstly, I make lessons fun and interesting (for both of your sakes)! I have given lessons to a variety of audiences, from GCSE through to degree level.

I will tailor my approach as much to you as I can, often with going through material as I teach to help you learn for yourself and come up with a comprehensive set of notes so that you can understand the material when you come back to it at a later date. Where possible I like to use questions to help you understand it.

Background

I have been delivering workshops and educating in STEM for 4 years, and tutoring for 1 year.

I'm a 4th year Chemical Engineering student at the University of Sheffield (1st class predicted), and achieved AAA in A level Maths, Chemistry and Biology.

I tutored many students individually and in groups during my time as a teaching intern this summer.
