Recent PhD graduate in chemistry tutoring in Glasgow: Chemistry, Biology, Biochemistry, Medicinal chemistry

Methodology

Hey, are you finding chemistry hard? You are not alone. I have tutored lots of people in both undergraduate level and below, so I have plenty of experience in helping you pass your exams and finally understand what is going on in your lectures/classes.
Most people have problems with understanding the basics, so in my lessons we will consolidate the basics and then build from there. The ultimate goal is for you to do well in you exams. Understanding how the physical world behaves is a nice side perk.

Experience

I have been teaching undergraduates in both teaching labs, tutorials lectures and private lessons for over four years. I have taught classes of up to 40 people and i have had over 5 private students. Overall, feedback from my students has been very positive with one girl crediting me with her admittance to medical school. Out of the 5 private students all improved their chemistry grades, with one getting an A at the end of the year (up from a previous D in her tests before I started teaching her). I have only tutored chemistry so far, however as my PhD is in biological chemistry I also have the ability to teach biology and biochemistry.
