My method of teaching varies depending on the student, as I believe each person learns differently. I approach lessons in a variety of ways from discussing topics and slowing building up ideas by allowing the student to piece things together themselves, to using past paper questions and practice questions in the textbook/on the internet.
I am a first year Chemistry student at Newcastle University who has a passion for both chemistry and maths. I achieved an A at A level in both subjects, and have since gone on to tutor 3 people at GCSE and A Level.

I am a well presented and adaptable degree level student at Newcastle University, with both academic and vocational sports qualifications underpinned by voluntary work experience in swimming coaching and the Scouts. A committed team player, with good communication skills, I am able to assimilate and use new information quickly. I am looking to a career in Chemistry or Engineering.
