Chemistry PhD student offering a range of Science and Mathematics tutoring online

Methodology

I like to let my tutees guide the content that we learn. I cover range of core subjects to cement their knowledge along with exam technique. Mostly, I hope that tutees I teach learn to enjoy their subjects and build confidence in their abilities.

Experience

I have a masters in Chemistry and am starting my PhD in Organic Chemistry this month. Previous students I have taught have improved their chemistry grades by 3 levels! I am happy to teach chemistry up to A level and other sciences and maths up to GCSE.
