Personal Description:

I am currently in the final writing up phase of my chemistry PhD at University of Cambridge, and have recent started a teaching position teaching chemistry at first-year university undergraduate level. Prior to my PhD studies, I have had 7 years of experience working as a research chemist in the pharmaceutical industry.

Tutoring Experience:

I have become an experienced chemistry tutor during my time at Leeds and Cambridge as well as at Pfizer Pharmaceutical, having regularly tutored and mentored students and junior colleagues. I have also 3 years experience as a voluntary link scientist to a local school where my role was to stimulate pupils' interests in science. I can teach one-to-one as well as small groups. With my industrial background, I can relate academia to industry and hence can offer career advice in the science sector.

I have >400 hours' experience in A-level Chemistry and Biology and >500 hours in delivering supervisions (2-3 people ) in undergraduate chemistry courses in the past 4 years. It really was a pleasure for me to see their grades improve, some dramatically. I have received a prestigious teaching award from Fitzwilliam College (University of Cambridge) in 2015, as a recognition for my contribution to undergraduate teaching in the university.

I am grateful that I have managed to play a small part in helping them achieve what they are capable of.

Tutoring Approach:

I am enthusiastic and passionate about chemistry (and biology) and believe tuition should be tailored to the individual's ability and interests. In particular I try to help build students' confidence in approaching areas that they are struggling with from basic principles and applying them. I can relate to students' difficulties in grasping certain concepts because I have been through the same before and have often developed different methods in explaining difficult concepts. I will ask questions along the way to engage students to problem solve. I love to teach my students from the very basics and work out their problems step by step.

My first lesson will typically involve assessing the student's needs and level of understanding, and then drawing up a concise and realistic tuition plan.
