Personal Description:

I am a highly skilled biological chemistry researcher with high levels of academic achievement and a number of publications (see below). I am keen to pass on my knowledge and skills to learners from all backgrounds. I have recently completed an initial teacher training course at Bradford College (July 2013). Since then I have been working on an access to HE program and around South Yorkshire and the East Midlands as a supply teacher. My specialisms are pre university chemistry and university level organic chemistry.
Publications:
“The synthesis of nucleoside models.” Tetrahedron, 59 (26), 4739, 2003.
“Impact of 8-aryl and 8-heteroaryl-2’-deoxyguanosine derivatives on G-quadruplex formation.” Nucleic Acid Symposium Series, 51, 39, 2007.
“The synthesis of 8-heteroaromatic-2-deoxyguanosine derivatives.” Synlett, 10, 1510, 2008.
“Isostructural self-assembly of 2′-deoxyguanosine derivatives in aqueous and organic media.” J. Am. Chem. Soc… 130 (32), 10429, 2008.
“Walking a supramolecular tightrope.” J. Am. Chem. Soc… 131 (30), 10403, 2009.
“Development of rationally designed DNA N6-adeninemethyltransferase inhibitors.” Bio-org. Med. Chem. Lett… 22, (9), 3079-3082, 2012.
“Structural studies of supramolecular G-quadruplexes formed from 8-aryl-2’-deoxyguanosine derivatives.” Journal of Organic Chemistry, 81, 14, 6026, 2016.

Tutoring Experience:

Access to HE (Science, Chemistry), A' Level Chemistry, A' Level Applied Science, GCSE Chemistry and Single Science, KS3 and 4 Science. University tutorials and lecturing.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is to develop a bespoke solution depending upon the needs and aspirations of the student.
