I recently achieved my DPhil in organic chemistry at the University of Oxford. Prior to this I also studied my Undergraduate degree at Oxford and graduated in the top 5% of my cohort. Whilst studying I taught chemistry at all levels, including to GCSE and A-Level pupils. Alongside this, I also assisted several students' with their university applications at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. I always ensure that I tailor my lessons to the individual student as I recognise that all students learn best in different ways. I am a patient tutor and enjoy explaining difficult concepts in simpler terms.

Experience

I've taught chemistry at GCSE/IGCSE and A-Level/IB level for the last two years, both in person and online. I am an enthusiastic and patient tutor and I really enjoy teaching my students. I'm happy to help with all areas of chemistry and I am familiar with the courses run by the major examination boards: AQA, Edexcel, OCR. Students have told me how much they have enjoyed my teaching and have even made me cards in the past to thank me! I'm able to teach all areas of chemistry up to degree level, and I specialise in teaching organic chemistry to undergraduate and masters' students. Whether you need help preparing for an exam, understanding a research paper, or with practical research, I'd be very happy to hear from you.

I have also been employed as a tutor for chemistry for several years at Magdalen College, the University of Oxford, where I have taught chemistry and biochemistry. This role included giving regular tutorials, marking work and college examinations. I am passionate about my subject and enjoy helping others to learn and secure the best exam results they can for their future.
