Personal Description:

I am a private chemistry tutor based in Chiswick, London. I have a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry, and I will be happy to help you with all your chemistry needs. I have extensive experience in tutoring students in chemistry on both sides of the Atlantic, having lived and worked in the US prior to moving to London. In addition to tutoring, I also taught organic chemistry at San Francis**Contact Detail Removed**te University on a part-time basis.

I offer tuition in the following subjects:
-Chemistry: GCSE, A-Level, University foundation year, University organic chemistry
Syllabus: AQA, CIE, Edexcel, OCR
-Maths: GCSE
Syllabus: AQA, Edexcel, CIE, OCR

I do not have a car, so I only travel to students who live within 4 mile radius from Chiswick. For everybody else I offer tuition online.

I have been tutoring online for a number of years, teaching both secondary school/high school and university students from all over the world. There is no need to go anywhere and all the student needs is a laptop. The student can follow what I am doing via screen sharing and I use a drawing program called SketchBook that allows me to draw the structures and formulae. I save the lesson notes to a JPEG file which I email to the student after the lesson so there is no need to take notes and waste time. The student can show his or her work via their laptop camera so the session is highly interactive and effective.

Tutoring Experience:

I started teaching chemistry to undergraduate students while at graduate school at University of California, Santa Cruz about 15 years ago. I taught general and organic chemistry. After receiving my Ph.D… I worked as a research scientist for a startup company in Silicon Valley, California, working on cutting edge research in nanotechnology. I have been a full-time chemistry tutor for the past 4 years, teaching students on both sides of the Atlantic. I have tutored students in GCSE level chemistry, A-level chemistry, and college level chemistry. I am well familiar with the curriculum and stringent requirements of GCSE and A-level examinations.

Tutoring Approach:

I see my job as to provide the missing ingredients from the educational experience. For some students, the lecture or the book simply does not make sense. I will explain the concept in as many different ways as needed until the student gets it. For some students more practice problems are needed and I am happy to provide as many problems as needed and guide the student through a solution. We are all different and learn in different fashions. I see my job as to find the right way and to unlock that potential that I see in every student who comes to me.
