About me

Hello! My name is Ioannis Bastias and I graduated this summer from the University of Edinburgh with a Masters degree in Medicinal and Biological Chemistry (MChem). Having concluded my studies with a 2:1 Honours degree, I am very confident in my skills and knowledge in all aspects of chemistry, particularly organic and biological chemistry. Evidence for this provide my year 3 organic chemistry laboratory award as well as my overall mark in the fifth year of my studies (1st).

Hello! My name is Ioannis Bastias and I graduated this summer from the University of Edinburgh with a Masters degree in Medicinal and Biological Chemistry (MChem). Having concluded my studies with a 2:1 Honours degree, I am very confident in my skills and knowledge in all aspects of chemistry, particularly organic and biological chemistry. Evidence for this provide my year 3 organic chemistry laboratory award as well as my overall mark in the fifth year of my studies (1st).

Since my high-school years I have been fascinated by the way that Chemistry explains the physical world around us, as well as its potential to improve the quality and propensity of life. Chemistry has quite literally shaped the world we live in and understanding it gives us the tool to change the world for the better as well.

I have been an IB student myself and needless to say it was one of the most stressful times of my life. Having adequate support and resources is paramount to success. Through 1-to-1 sessions I aim to provide my students with the necessary support and knowledge and prepare them as much as possible for their exams. I also hope to show them how beautiful and useful chemistry is, once you understand it.

About my sessions

Through countless exams throughout my university and IB years, I have come to understand that success depends on two things. Firstly, understanding the subject is much more important than memorizing it. I aim to help my students understand their respective subjects by offering simple yet in-depth explanations and check their understanding through continuous questioning so they can explain it themselves. In addition via regular short quizzes I am to measure their progress and challenge them.

In addition via regular short quizzes I am to measure their progress and challenge them.

Secondly, equally important is to practice the thing you want to succeed at (i.e. the exams). For this reason I am a huge advocate of using past paper questions. This way my students can practice, learn from their mistakes and familiarize with questions they will be asked during the exam.

I like to follow a structured session based around my student needs. For this reason I aim to know my students strengths and weaknesses. The student will inform me about potential problems he comes across and I will use all my resources and knowledge to answer these questions. Following up I will ask specific questions to check my students understanding and offer useful homework questions and learning resources so they can practice and prepare for the next lesson.

I would like to thank you for considering me. Please feel free to contact me with any enquiries you may have. I look forward hearing from you soon and wish you could luck with your studies.

I'm really satisfied with my lessons. Ioannis puts a lot of time and effort to make sure that everything is explained clearly, and that I actually understand the topic.
