Imperial College final year Chemistry student gives chemistry lessons to A-level students in London

Methodology

I am in the final year BSc Chemistry Course at Imperial College London and I am keen to apply my chemistry knowledge and other science knowledge to this role. I explain the part that student usually get confused and then ask them questions about certain knowledge regarding their progress.

Experience

I have been tutoring Mathematics and Chemistry to GCSE and A-Level students for three years. The students are mostly my friends from old school. After the tutorials (explain the knowledge in textbook and go through exercise questions), they understood the subject more and achieve better grade in tests.
