I tutor students of any age, particularly GCSE and A-level students. Being an chemical engineer, I can teach maths, physics and chemistry.

Background

I am a student in chemical engineering at Imperial College London and I have currently completed my 4th year.
I have always enjoyed helping students understand scientific subjects and I have been tutoring primary and high school students for years.

Silvia's CV

PERSONAL PROFILE
I am an enthusiast student, graduating in 2019 in Chemical Engineering from Imperial College London, with an expected First. I was on the engineering dean’s list during each year of my studies and I spent my third year on exchange at EPFL, Lausanne.
I have a strong passion for research and I will start a PhD in October. I always exceptionally enjoy teaching and I have been tutoring for many years.

I can fluently speak 4 European languages and I would love to follow my passion on research, by doing a PhD in the dynamic and international environment of Imperial College London.
