PhD Researcher offering tutoring in the use of simulation tools for Chemical Engineering such as gPROMS Model Builder, Aspen Hysys and Aspen Plus, up to University level in Leeds.

Methodology

I approach tutoring by working out examples starting from simple problems that require knowledge of few theoretical concepts, to more complex situation where the student might require awareness of tools from other subjects. I treat my students with the highest respect and I am open to work out any type of question and address specific knowledge that is needed but the student is not aware of.

Experience

I am a Chemical Engineer with a Master of Engineering and currently working towards completion of my PhD in Mathematical Modelling of Chemical Reactors. I have been tutoring privately for two years with one student helping her progressing from Level 2 to Level 3 of the Chemical Engineering course.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : £15/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £60
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £100

Details

A small fee might be charged if travel to the student location is very time consuming (i.e. more than 30 min).
