I am passionate and enthusiastic about science and hope to help spark a passion for learning in my students. During my years of study I have developed lots of different methods, tricks and techniques that have helped me to succeed, not only in exams, but also in developing a deep understanding of the subjects I've studied. This means that I am able to help new students to develop new learning techniques to make studying more efficient and rewarding.
I am a recent Master of Chemistry graduate from the University of Oxford, achieving a high 2.1 classification. I have a strong academic background. I received 2A*'s and 2A's at A level (Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Further Maths) as well as 8A*'s and 3A's at GCSE. I believe that this, along with good communication skills and my desire to learn and work hard, means that I will be able to help students build their confidence in chemistry and maths.
