A PhD holder in Chemistry offering GCSE and A-level chemistry lessons in Bristol

Methodology

My teaching method is unique to each student. I sometimes use visual aids, give lots of practice problems or discuss with the student. I believe a student can understand any subject, depending on the technique used in teaching and learning.

Experience

I am a PhD holder in Chemistry and have 3 years experience in tutoring. I have privately tutored about 7 students. All my students are now successful graduates or about pursuing a graduate degree. Additionally I have a lot of practical experience in organic chemistry.
