I am a chemistry bye-fellow at a Cambridge college, having gained my PhD at the University. having gained had 7 years of experience working as a research chemist in the pharmaceutical industry. I am an experienced supervisor having supervised over 100 undergraduate students for a variety of undergraduate chemistry courses.
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 2014 and 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.
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.

Please would you be free to come to my parents' apartment for our first tutorial on Chemistry (First Year Nat.Sci. Tripos syllabus) on next Wednesday, 17 April?
If possible, I should be most grateful if we could have an intensive half-day session, preferably in the morning, say, from 8am to 12 noon on 17 April. The goal is to go through the tricky parts of some past exam papers in the 1st half of the session, and then grill on those questions/topics where I have the biggest problems in the remaining half of the lesson.
I very much hope that the suggested date and plan for this first lesson will work for you. The mock Chemistry exam will take place on 23 - 24 April.
Please let me know if you have any problem or suggestion regarding this first-lesson scheduling/planning.
Have you gotten hold of any past exam papers yet via CamTools?
Looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Many thanks and kind regards,
