My teaching method is to work on an area of weakness and to take out any previous misconceptions that students have, helping build a stronger solid foundation of knowledge. My lessons will last an hour and they will include taking away misconceptions, building knowledge and testing knowledge with exam style questions.
I am a qualified Chemist and hold a PGCE in Science, taught students from year 7 up to A-level more then 200 hours of teaching experience. Students have learnt from withdrawing previous misconceptions to build up stronger and correct science knowledge.

Relevant Modules: Laboratory Skills and professional Practice, States of Matter, Synthesis, Separation and Purification.
Individual Projects: A Synthetic Plan
The aim of this project was to synthesize 200mg of the target molecule. Using software such as Reaxys and Sci-finder to find a feasible synthetic route to the target molecule. I achieved a successful synthetic route, by analyzing the target molecule to find the main functional groups present. Highlighting these groups and using the technique of retrosynthetic analysis, helped to pave the way for the development of an appropriate synthetic route. Whilst also gaining an advanced level of experience in using Reaxys. The methods mentioned previously, resulted in me finding three different sythetic routes that would each produce the desired target molecule.
Group Projects: NMR & Mass Spectroscopy
This group project involved the management of a team of four peers. The aim of the task was to work well together effectively and use our knowledge to deduce a product using NMR (nuclear magnetic resonance) and Mass Spectroscopy data. As a leader of our group, I ensured that we had a clear plan and made sure that everyone shared their knowledge and completed the tasks that were best suited to their skillset. Additionally, this task helped to further develop my report writing skills. The report and conclusions were then presented as a group to lecturers and specialists in this subject.
