Personal Description:

Fully qualified teacher. PGCE from Bristol University.
Extensive experience of R&D science within a blue chip organisation. Managed spectroscopy groups which assisted chemists to identify novel molecules. Recently involved in delivering the drug testing facility for the London 2012 games.
Have held roles of significant responsibility in high profile institutions in the UK.
Extensive publication record.

Tutoring Experience:

Two years full time teaching in a school in N London. Some integrated science but mostly in examination classes for pupils aged 14-18. Successively tutored an Oxbridge candidate whilst in a school context. Some tutoring at University of organic chemistry - Southampton Univ - whilst a post doctoral employee.
Have supported over 15 undergraduate students on industrial placements which required setting practical projects relating to drug discovery.

Tutoring Approach:

Enthusiastic about science and understanding of the challenge that tutees have in visualising the concepts that underpin chemistry. Will seek alternative approaches as I have done in many years at a senior manager within the Pharma industry.
For exam tuition I will use past papers and identified areas of concern from the tutee to direct my approach.
I tend to use analogies as far as possible to illustrate scientific concepts.
Comfortable with Skype so can send materials ahead of lesson and work through these at time of the tuition.
