PhD Chemistry Student studying in Uni of St Andrews up for ChemTutorials

Methodology

I approach each topic based on the level of understanding of the student. Chemistry is a difficult subject to understand, thus, my method of teaching is to explain things in simpler terms, relatable concepts, and associating concepts with everyday life will help the student grasp the topic with such ease. Moreover, motivating the student and complimenting them with each achievement they acquire during my lessons is a big factor in enhancing their self-esteem and confidence in learning and grasping the topic at hand, which I always apply when doing lectures and/or tutorial sessions. I am not afraid to review the topic at hand if I notice that the student has a hard time grasping the concept and will adjust my teaching approach if needed.

Each student has their own approach to understanding ideas, concepts, and theories, and it is important for me to know these tendencies and adjust my teaching methods to each and every student in my class.

Experience

I am a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry, Studying at the University of St Andrews, Scotland. I am originally from the Philippines and a University lecturer in General Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, Analytical Chemistry, and Biochemistry for 2 years before doing my Ph.D. I have experience dealing with 20 - 30 students and I also have experience with in-person and online tutorials as well. All of my students have greatly improved their Chemistry background after attending my classes and garnered high grades and ratings on each chemistry topic.

Sir Jerson is my mentor in my research subject. He is very dedicated and approachable person. Also, he is very experienced and knowledgeable in his field and he always makes sure that his students really understand what he's teaching.

Jerson is a very patient and eloquent tutor! When I first came to him I had very little knowledge of Chemistry, but Jerson never got angry or annoyed with me. He answered all of my questions easily and explained concepts to me far easier than even my teacher could. Jerson never once cancelled a session with me and was very reliable with his timing. He was very engaging and helped me come to love the subject. He is very experienced in Chemistry and will gladly help anyone that needs his assistance. I 10/10 recommend him to anyone that is having any trouble in Chemistry!

I've known Sir Jerson since my undergraduate studies. Hence, I have learned a lot from him. As a professor, he does not settle for mediocre, thus I am confident that he will also give his utmost best for the student to understand and cope up with the lessons. I never got bored when it's him who does the lecture and I find myself learning and wanting to know more about the certain topics that he is discussing.
