Chemistry: From basic general science skills to extensive knowledge. Glasgow, Postgrad Medicinal Chemist

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.

Distance could increase the fee depending on how much the travel costs.

I teach chemistry. For the level(s)primary, secondary, GCSE, as level, a level, BTEC, adult education, undergraduate, masters, diploma, doctorate.
I give lessons in person, at my home or the student's home.

Thomas's Experience

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.

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.
