MSc student offering lessons in GCSE Science and Maths, A Level Chemistry in and around Leeds

Methodology

Most of my teaching/tutoring experience is in secondary schools and one-to-one with year 11/13 to assist in exam revision.

Since the sciences and maths require problem solving at its core, the main problem many students have is not having an intuitive understanding of a concept and so struggle to apply it to a problem when needed and often how to go about solving a problem in the first place.
I like to get to know my students and build a good rapport and I try to see how they think and approach a problem or what they understand about a particular concept - in short, it's easier to fix something if you know what's wrong. Once I understand a students train of thought I identify the problem areas and help them correct it by guiding them through the logic at their pace and try to let them get to the answer themself.

Experience

I am studying for a MSc in Chemical Biology and Drug Design at the University of Leeds. After completing my BSc I worked in schools for around 6 months as a cover supervisor delivering pre-planned lessons to years 7 - 11 and then worked in a research and development lab working on pharmaceuticals before deciding to come back to Leeds to do my masters.

Skills Profile

Problem Solving and Attention to Detail
My experience in research and development required me to problem solve on a daily basis, I often contributed to designing synthetic routes for myself and others as well as executing the synthesis itself and modifying the procedure depending on what the chemistry of that particular substance demanded. Noticing the little things, how soluble a substance was in a particular solvent and subtle differences in its behaviour in different conditions often meant the difference between a time consuming purification of low yield to a simpler one of high yield and higher purity.

Motivation and Organisation.
I am a keen musician, playing clarinet to diploma level and am also a competent flautist. I have continued these hobbies during my studies at university and was in the symphony orchestra and symphonic winds as well as concert band and brass band (playing percussion). The fast paced and hectic life of R&D forced me to become an efficient worker, running multiple reactions simultaneously all requiring different purification methods and at different timescales required me to be organised in my paperwork, practical work and mentally.

Computer Skills & Communication
I am familiar with Microsoft office (especially Excel and Word), am confident at finding various information online and have learned various specialist programmes such as ChemDraw, IJChem Database, spotfire data analysis, MestreNova.
As someone who has been both a music and science tutor, I realise that different audiences demand different responses to a given situation and I am adaptable to these different needs. I also regularly presented my findings to colleagues in meetings at Evotec.

Education Experience
I spent around 6 months working for Principle Resourcing as a cover supervisor, managing classrooms of year 7-11 children and delivering pre-planned lessons to them when required. Much of the time I worked in a different school every day, adapting to each schools rewards and sanctions system, time table, code of conduct and have experienced an extremely wide range of schools.

Hobbies & Interests
In addition to being a clarinettist and flautist, I enjoy composing music and repairing instruments. I also enjoy reading into fields related to medicinal chemistry including pharmacology, toxicology and medicine.
