Personal Description:

Hi there! My name is Steve, and 3 years ago I moved from Edinburgh to Cambridge to pursue a PhD in atmospheric chemistry at the University of Cambridge. I graduated with a 1st class honours degree in Chemistry from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, with a dissertation project specialising in astrochemistry (involving the study of the formation of molecules in interstellar space). My current project specialises in studying the formation of organic aerosol in the atmosphere and their affect on human health. I have a pretty easy going attitude and I am easy to get along with. My hobbies include (but are not limited to) playing guitar (I am currently in a touring band), football, rowing and skiing.

Tutoring Experience:

I now have a wealth of teaching and tutoring experience, having taken on several tutees through First Tutor. I also have been demonstrating practical chemistry to 2nd year students at the University of Cambridge, as well as supervising undergraduate students.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to tutoring will depend entirely on the requirements of the tutee. I am happy to travel in and around Cambridge to visit the tutee at their own home, or in a more neutral environment should they so desire. I am very easy going and I would view myself as a supportive person. I am absolutely not a judgemental or critical person, and I would certainly approach tutoring with a positive attitude. Positive feedback and congratulating progress is certainly my attitude towards learning, as opposed to criticising. I am also a very patient person, and I understand that everyone progresses at different speeds.
