Personal Description:

I am a MSci Chemistry graduate currently pursuing an EPSRC-funded, cross-discipline Ph.D project in Computational Chemistry at UCL. I completed my undergraduate degree at Queen Mary, University of London, graduating with First Class Honours. I would love to continue tutoring on a regular basis to help students build confidence, while also building up my own. Although I know that for many students, study is just a means to an end, I believe that a good, disciplined study habit can be an indispensable tool in life, and this is the most important lesson that I could teach to any prospective student.

Tutoring Experience:

During my fourth year at university I participated in a peer-assisted learning group - which involved weekly tutoring of students in their first and second years. I currently participate in bi-weekly Research Journal Clubs at UCL, during which my fellow students take turns presenting and critiquing research-based presentations based around our respective areas of study.

Since then I have gained 8+ months experience tutoring GCSE and A-Level Maths and Science, across many exam boards (OCR, AQA and Edexcel).

Tutoring Approach:

I have an adaptable teaching style. If a student is simply looking for a pass mark - I can teach them how to pass the exam, but if they show genuine flair and passion for the subject, I would gladly go above and beyond, showing them the underlying principles behind what they are learning, and where they can be applied, guiding them to further develop their curiosity. I always try to add context and real-life applications to the material being taught, making it more approachable and less tedious.
