I am a tutor in scientific fields, specialised in Chemistry and Nanoscience, with a 5 years experience supervising students in three different countries (Italy, Sweden, and the United Kingdom). I have a solid background as a chemist, finalised by doctoral studies in Chemical Engineering at the university of Birmingham.
My lessons are focused on understanding the weak points in the student knowledge and from there, I explain and help in grasping the topics with the help of simple and everyday life examples. Exercises and short assessment are part of the lessons, with supervision of the logical and scientific process, in order to achieve the best results.
I have been giving lessons in three different countries, usually to one to three persons at the time, which helps me in focusing on all the students' issues. For all different levels of teaching, students have achieved their goal, from exams to being accepted to specific courses at the university, with high marks.
