Hi! If you don't like chemistry (especially organic!) or you think you will never understand it, it's because you haven't met me yet! :)
I'm Maxime, I'm a native french and super friendly young guy, fluent in english, and I'm a Doctor in chemistry after I did a Ph.D at the University of Nottingham. I now work as a development chemist near Newcastle. Naturally, chemistry is my thing, particularly organic chemistry! I've already done some private tutoring in chemistry (speaking in french and english, but not both at the same time, that's weird!) and I've also been a demonstrator in teaching laboratories in the school of chemistry of the University of Nottingham. So I really like to teach and you will notice it very quickly!
I am fully confident with online lessons. I much prefer face to face if you're lucky to live close enough from me when covid restrictions will allow it. I can only travel to you if you live really close as I don't have a car, but if you live too far away from me and you are struggling with chemistry, I promise I will be worth the trip or taking online lessons :)
Update: during this pandemic, I will most likely do online lessons even if you live close to me. Sorry for the inconvenience. I can still teach you very well from a distance :)
All you need is my 4 golden rules in organic chemistry, and you'll be set for good, you'll see! One of my university students started with 20% in second year, finished her second year retake at 50% and scored 80% the following year!! Do you want that too? ;)
You will see how passionate I am about chemistry, I will get pretty enthusiastic during the lessons! :)
Private tutoring in chemistry for over 10 years, and still enjoying every single lesson!
Helped students with any type of A-level (AQA, OCR, Edexcel,... you name it!), and helping at University level up to Master's degree.
Demonstrator in teaching laboratories in the school of Chemistry of The University of Nottingham (2015-2018 academic years)
Direct supervisor of a master's student during the 2015-2016 academic year
And of course you can check out my reviews! :)
I'm really proud of having helped so many people and all my students are very dear to me! :)
I will make you reach the University of your dreams, and if you are already there, I will make you smash the chemistry part!
Listening to my student's needs is key. I like to prepare myself in advance so I will ask all the lessons and exercises to be sent to me in advance so I can start to work on it and make it worth it for you! I already have a lot of books and of course significant experience helping students achieve their dreams!
Over the years I became more and more able to find the appropriate words and different tips to help people to understand. Basically, I will adapt, and this is something I will say on the first lesson: you are the boss! Tell me what you can't understand and we will find a way to solve that problem together! And I'm actually the best at finding silly and funny mnemonic ways to remember something, I found it helps my students a lot to remember difficult aspects of this science. They worked, they still do, and they will work with you!
I will write a lot during the lesson, and everything I write will be scanned and sent to you straight after we are done. So it's nice and convenient for you to follow what I say.
If you really don't understand anything about organic chemistry, contact me! Don't miss out!!
