Engrossing chemistry lessons with experienced chemist, materials scientist, chemistry game designer and video producer

Methodology

My lessons are driven by what you need: passing exams? Let's get that technique! Understanding concepts? Context, discussion, challenge, and exercise! Simply love chemistry? You're in the right place.
I bring my knowledge of the practice, theory, and teaching of chemistry, delivering a diverse and thought-provoking experience. Practicals can be arranged on request.

Experience

I graduated from Imperial College in 2011, with a 1st in Chemistry. Since then, I've helped develop the blackest material known to man, film hundreds of chemistry experiments, develop an iOS chemistry game, and I now make educational videos. My students have gone on to A-grades, and degrees at Russell Group universities. I am familiar with UK and international curricula.
