I have a Ph.D. and 1st class Honours degree in chemistry and physics and have worked in research laboratories in Universities and industry for over 7 years. During this time I also lectured and tutored chemistry and physics. I also developed strong links with a local school to supervise Advanced Higher Chemistry projects and have strong experience in this area. I am particularly specialised in Advanced Higher / 1st Year University and have spent a lot of time tutoring pupils of this age and level. I have a unique range of study materials for all levels that I teach, which have been developed to allow pupils to focus on practising questions in areas of their own particular weakness.
I have tutored undergraduate students and school students in chemistry and physics for more than 10 years. I am very familiar with the syllabus for National 5, Higher and Advanced Higher chemistry and physics and am happy to teach undergraduate chemistry to University and college students. I work with students who have a range of abilities, from those struggling to sit the National 5 exam, to those aiming for an A pass at Advanced Higher.
I am very friendly and approachable and aim to make my students feel at ease and enjoy the lessons. I frequently tutor the same students for consecutive years as they progress through the secondary school system and am often recommended to their classmates by word of mouth. I have an excellent range of practice materials for all courses I tutor. These can be worked on during the lesson or left with the student for additional practice and marked by me after their attempt.
