My most successful students have found my concept-based approach helpful. Often, the most challenging areas of GCSE/A-Level courses require a more descriptive and intuitive approach, rather than brute text-book learning. I plan lessons around class work my students are undertaking, to best compliment their learning.
I am a recent graduate from the University of Cambridge, having specialised in Organic Chemistry. With several years experience tutoring, and a year working as a Schools Liaison I am well equipped to help school-age and sixth-form students in any sciences.
I also play jazz piano, folk/classical guitar and sketch landscapes for fun.
Travel is charged at £2.50 within Cambridge, and up to £5.00 thereafter.
