I believe that teaching should be a collaborative process - if someone is simply being talked at for an hour, they're unlikely to learn anything at all. In my lessons I seek to guide students to reach the correct conclusions by themselves, and I find that this gives a sense of achievement that immediately helps consolidate their new knowledge. I give as many opportunities as possible for students to get hands on with material and engage with the concepts, as I find that this is the most effective way to learn. I provide lessons for Maths and Chemistry up to A Level, and am happy to discuss lessons in Chemistry at higher levels.
I am a Chemistry graduate with a first class Masters degree. I have over 80 hours of experience tutoring Chemistry and Maths at GCSE and A Level online since 2017. My speciality is Organic Chemistry, and I have significant practical experience in this area, including five months as a research assistant at the University of Birmingham.
University of Warwick; MChem Chemistry 2016 - 2020
First class honours
Sidmouth College 2009 - 2016
A-level: Mathematics (A*), Chemistry (A), English Literature (A)

University of Birmingham - PhD candidate 2020 - 2021
Role included a broad range of responsibilities, including practical lab work, data analysis, and ensuring that the lab was kept well-stocked and in a safe and tidy condition.
Masters Project: Ligand Spacers for Supramolecular Cages 2019 - 2020
During the last year of my Masters I worked in Prof. Michael Ward’s group on an organic synthesis project, aiming to synthesise new ligands for self-assembled organometallic cages. This involved synthesis of the ligands themselves, purification via column chromatography, formation of the cage structures and analysis using 1H NMR.
Warwick University Climbing Club exec 2019 - 2020
Position: Tour Officer
Organised a 10-day holiday to a world-class climbing destination for 60 club members, including booking flights, accommodation, insurance and other transport. Other responsibilities included teaching new members how to climb safely, supervising inexperienced climbers on outdoor trips, and dispensing and keeping track of gear during club hours.
CUHK Summer Undergraduate Research Programme 2019
From June to August 2019, I travelled to the Chinese University of Hong Kong to work in Prof. Gavin Chit Tsui’s research group on a project involving novel Sonogashira-like palladium-catalysed coupling reactions.
MyTutor 2017 - 2019
Provided online tutoring for GCSE and A-Level Maths and Chemistry; 81 completed sessions.
Challenges Abroad: Thailand 2016 - 2017
Spent a month volunteering in Thailand, including teaching children English in an underdeveloped hill-tribe village and helping to care for the animals at the Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai. For this project I raised over £2,000 for the FutureSense Foundation by organising and running events and partaking in street collections.
