Chemistry masters graduate, happy to help with school chemistry or up to masters level.

Methodology

My teaching method varies depending on how the student learns, I try to teach so that the student is involved and not getting bored so that they can enjoy what they are learning. I will always try to give a few examples and get the student to try and attempt some questions themselves too.

Background

I graduated with a first in my chemistry masters last year and during my time at university I also tutored A-level maths to a struggling student and he ended up passing with a B at the end of the year.

Andie

Perfect! Absolutely exceptional tutor! With help from Leigh I graduated with 68% in Pharmacology and Medicinal Chemistry Module from The University of Exeter, with Medicinal Chemistry component at 74%. Leigh was absolutely perfect for my style of learning, very patient, great theoretical and visual examples, amazing at explaining difficult concepts and mathematical equations, always gave me practise questions and great feedback which was brilliant because I was able to confirm that I understood what I was learning. Leigh also gave me really good exam tips and approaching complex questions. I couldn’t be happier, Thank you very much Leigh!
