Postgraduate Chemist tutoring for students studying at GCSE-A levels-Undergraduate in Cardiff area. Lessons are planned to help students fully understand fundamental chemical concepts.

Methodology

I am a postgraduate Chemist intending to tutor students from GCSE to undergraduate level.

Lessons will be planned accordingly based on the student's current knowledge and any deficiencies. Comprehensive tutoring will be given on each topic in bitesize segments. Lessons will include handouts and practise problems to be completed as homework, which I will mark in my own time to provide useful feedback.

As a patient person with a passion for teaching and learning, I will set out to tailor my lessons to each student to suit their needs.




Experience

I am new to professionally tutoring students. I do however have a record of stepping up to teach fellow students throughout my years as a student. I take pride in successfully explaining complex ideas by use of analogies to supplement material.

For the time I have known Sam he always has seemed fascinated by the sciences, which I believe is crucial in being able to not just teach the subject but to make it interesting. Sam also presents himself as a friendly, patient person who I think would genuinely enjoy the experience of tutoring.

Anisa

Sam is a very enthusiastic, passionate and patient person, who not only has excellent knowledge in his subject but ensures he provides a fun and pleasant environment for others to learn!

I lived with Sam during my time studying at University, and he was always there to help or lend a hand with his large array of Chemistry knowledge. He is a very likeable person who is easy to talk and work with. He is truly dedicated to the work he does and the knowledge he passes on to those around him. I highly recommend Sam to anyone who is looking for a genuinely nice guy with an ample amount of scientific knowledge.

Raquel

Samuel did his master project in the group I work in as senior PhD student and I would strongly recommend him for tutoring. He is a very responsible and comprehensive individual with attention to detail. Samuel is really knowledgeable and interested in science and particularly in chemistry. In addition, he is very accessible and versatile when interacting with people.

When I moved to UK I lived with Sam two years. He is a wonderful person, caring and patient. He used to study explaining us his lessons and presentations and, even we didn't know much chemistry (I studied another degree), we could understand and learn from his lecture. He is passionate for chemistry and I think he knows how to share his knowledge so everybody can understand this complex science.

Anthony

Great classmate from a master’s degree in chemistry, Sam is capable of understanding and explaining overly complex things in a way that is easy to understand, which I find is one of the most important traits a great tutor should have.
