I have an in depth knowledge of chemistry and can teach from A-level downwards. I know each student learns differently and can adapt lessons and how I teach to each individual student. I understand how frustrating chemistry can be.
As of June 2018 I will have completed my 4th year out of my 5 year integrated masters degree from the University of Edinburgh. I am on course for a 1st in my degree and have a passion for chemistry
