Dominic

Hampstead Tutor

I am a chemistry PhD student at University College London. I've recently published a paper in a scientific journal (don't worry, I won't bore you with the title!). I got my Master's degree in chemistry here at UCL as well. I have three A's at A-level in chemistry, physics and maths, and I also received the best GCSEs in my year at school.

Apart from my academic background, my hobbies include running, cooking, listening to music (rocker/indie kid here), playing piano (not particularly well), playing ukulele (even worse), watching films, and reading.

I've spent a year in Switzerland and Spain (when I was 12 and 13, respectively), and I love to travel. I've been to India, trekked in the Himalayas and seen the Taj Mahal. My dream trip would involve backpacking around Scandinavia and seeing the aurora borealis.

Currently, I live in Hampstead, and am looking to tutor anyone nearby who needs my help!

Tutoring Experience

Apart from having three younger siblings of my own who I've helped with plenty of homework along the years, I have mentored and participated in lab-demonstrating for first and second year students here at UCL.

Tutoring Approach

I've always found that the least effective teachers are the ones who drone on and on and expect you to take every boring word in. The best teachers are those who engage the class and get them thinking for themselves. I'm not going to bore you with a lecture that you'll forget by the time I leave. I feel like the best way to help you learn is by working through problems with you, and helping you to understand how to solve them for yourself next time. I want us to work together as a team to come to a solution.
