I am a recent Chemistry graduate with a final research project focusing on organic synthesis, throughout university I was associated with the Peer Assisted Learning mentoring programme established at my university. This programme has taught me different approaches to learning, I tend to focus on a discussion, question and answer type style, and creative revision techniques.
I was a learning mentor during my time at university and ran bimonthly academic sessions for the first year undergraduate student, focusing on the physical chemistry module associated with the course. During my final years I trained fellow mentors as an officer to the learning programme.
