I am a very enthusiastic teacher, I have volunteered at a refugee centre for 2 years in teaching English and thought English at a local school for a year in Malaysia. I would be interested in teaching enthusiastic students of higher age. Due to my extensive one-on-one teaching experience, my teaching method changes from person to person to satisfy their needs. Personally, I find Chemistry to be a logical and visual subject, but I would really like the challenge of utilizing aural, verbal or physical teaching methods. The fundamentals and basic understanding is very important in learning new concepts, as well as heavily involving examples and practices. For GCSE and A-Level students, practice past papers and guidance in problem-solving is essential. Research shows a lot of positive results in inquiry-based learning, which is something I would incorporate into my lessons. This can be done by questioning real-life processes using a chemical framework and understanding these processes thusly.
I am a student of Green Chemistry and Sustainable technologies at the University of York, studying at a Master's level. I have already completed a BSc in Chemistry and Business Management from the University of Birmingham. I've previously held a research internship at the Green Chemistry Centre of Excellence. Furthermore, I worked at the Physical Science editor at my university's science magazine and published many Chemistry related articles.
Extra charges for elaborate study materials and 1-day notice for cancellation. Flexibility will apply upon circumstance.
