Personal Description:

I am an Oxford graduate with a First Class Masters in Chemistry (Hons). I tutor at all levels and ages with a particular emphasis on the sciences and maths at A level and GCSE. I also teach for school entrance exams, and have five years of experience tutoring for 7+, 11+, 13+, common and public school entrance entry exams. I am currently studying at the Royal College of Music, London as a postgraduate, and I also teach the flute and piano, and music theory for GCSE, A level and Grade exams.

I am happy to teach, at short notice, specific areas of the A Level Maths/Further Maths (including the applied modules: statistics, decision and mechanics), Chemistry and Physics courses. I also prepare students for school/university entrance, and currently have a 100% success rate for the 7+, 11+, 13+, common and public school entrance exams, and Oxbridge applications.

If you would like Chemistry tuition at undergraduate level, please discuss your needs with me through the website`s messaging system. My specialism is in Theoretical Chemistry, and teaching physical/theoretical chemistry is my focus. Undergraduate Organic/Inorganic Chemistry tuition is also available, although some advance notice of topics to be covered is helpful in these cases. Examples of the main topics I teach include:

Quantum Mechanics
Mathematics for Science (partial differential equations, multivariate calculus, matrix algebra, Fourier analysis etc.)
Thermodynamics (Classical/Statistical)
Reaction Kinetics and Molecular Dynamics
Symmetry and Group Theory
Photochemistry
Magnetic Resonance

When I am tutoring, I aim to provide clarity as well as bringing the subject material to life. Being flexible, and catering to the different learning styles of my students is really important to me, but within this I will still maintain a systematic and methodical approach to the learning process. For example, in a typical lesson, I will discuss some relevant theory with the student, resolving any misconceptions and identifying any areas of confusion. Then, I will work through a carefully selected problem with them, guiding them step by step through to the answer, which has the dual purpose of providing them with a worked solution that they can use for revision purposes. Finally, I will give them a few similar questions to tackle under my supervision, until they able to solve the problems independently.

Most of my students are taught on a weekly basis for 60, 90 or 120 minute sessions, depending on what is required. Work between my sessions is an essential way of consolidating the material covered in my sessions. Normally, this will consist of a few exam problems that focus on further application of relevant theory. I will always prioritise quality over quantity when it comes to setting homework so as to never get in the way of the student's existing workload.

Self-motivation and willingness to work hard outside as well as in my sessions will ensure the success that my students aspire to.

Tutoring Experience:

For the last 5 years, I have tutored many young students for the 7+, 11+, 13+, common and public school entrance exams, as well as students working towards A level and GCSE exams. This experience has allowed me to develop my one to one tutoring style, as has my own personal experience of tutorials at Oxford, where I was taught by many gifted academics. I also enjoy teaching larger groups in environments such as schools and workshops.
