I've got a postgrad degree from the University of Glasgow and though I taught my students when I was at high school, my new found knowledge would only enhance my lessons further focusing on combining fun and learning at a suitable pace for the student.
Having found a passion for Chemistry from standard grade, I've established a sound understanding for 8 years gaining the basics to the extensive learning throughout my school and university career having taught 3 students who respectfully got an A with the other two getting B's.
Distance could increase the fee depending on how much the travel costs.

I am currently a 4th year student at the University of Glasgow looking for any opportunity to further develop and put to use my chemistry knowledge, both theoretical and practical based. The Glasgow Medicinal Chemistry degree has allowed me to build a strong foundation of extensive chemical knowledge in the form of Organic, Inorganic and Physical chemistry as well as invaluable laboratory work achieving an overall GPA of 14.33. I am a very self-motivated person that thoroughly enjoys working with others and the challenges that both practical and analytical chemistry bring. My reliability, communication skills and duteous nature are other essential qualities that I would apply to the job.
1st year: Chemistry-A5; Maths-B3; Exploring the Cosmos-C1
2nd year: Chemistry 2X-C1; Chemistry 2Y-C3; Science Skills-A4; Archaeology-B3
3rd year: Chemistry: Physical-B2; Organic-B3; Inorganic-D1; Organic labs-70%; Physical labs-87.5%; Inorganic labs-77%
4th year/research project: Currently writing a dissertation named ‘Exploration of PROTAC design through manipulation of linkers’ and performing lab work on the advancement of PROTAC technology in the pharmaceutical industry along with modules focusing on Organic and Medicinal with additional Physical, Inorganic and Special topics related to the medicinal degree.
Skills: Gained essential writing, organisational and oral communication skills via single and group presentations, reports and general university level studies. Theory work has handed me scientific, numerical and technical skills requiring a logical approach to solving problems and the ability to analyse data.
Practical skills gained but not limited to:
• Thin layer Chromatography
• High and Ultra Performance Liquid Chromatography (HLPC)
• Mass Spectroscopy
• Analysing NOESY and COSY
• Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS)
• Solvent phase and Solvent Extraction
• Purification with titration and distillation
• IR spectra and analysis
• Rotary Evaporation
2008-2014 Dunblane High School:

Administrative support/Researcher The leadership factory
Worked on a part time basis as a general employee interacting with colleagues and customers preparing training materials, data inputting, processing survey forms, market research and visited clients such as Alexander Dennis, MacTaggart Mickel and Compugraphics with the managers.
Varying chef positions:
• The Riverside restaurant (2014-2015)
• The Crook Bar (2016-2017)
• Matilda’s (2017)
Started as a commis chef at The Riverside developing vital culinary skills before advancing onto a head chef position at The Crook and Matilda’s simultaneously completing level 2 hygiene course and evolving my skill set on a variety of cooking methods and food groups. Chefing allowed me to work well under pressure and be able to not only take orders and carry them out in the professional, committed manner but also gave me the opportunity to take charge of fellow colleagues entailing duties such as stock control, time management and fast paced decision making.
