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.
