About me

I am current Earth Science (Geology) student at Durham University and I have a love of Science in general.

I have given plenty of music lessons before and I have previously tutored AS Chemistry so I have plenty of experience teaching all ages.  I also have plenty of experience with younger children as I voluntered at my local Cub Scouts as part of my Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award.

I find that, being a scientist understanding is key, however I recognise some people would prefer to learn things parrot fashion so I will ensure that our sessions run the way you want them to, and that you learn in the easiest way for you. Before we start doing past papers I will make sure that you understand the topic well enough to explain it to me.

I am also willing to offer advise on your University application, be it help with your Personal Statement or knowledge about Universities that I visited during my application process.

Feel free to ask me any questions, either by Webmail or by booking a free taster session, remember to let me know what you're struggling with.

See you soon!

Describe the Structure and Bonding of Benzene

Benzene has the chemical formula C6H6 where each Carbon atom is bonded to two other Carbon atoms and a single Hydrogen atom.  The 4th bond pair of electrons from each Carbon atom is delocalised, creating a delocalised cloud of electrons above and below the plane.  Benzene is an hexagonal ring ...

Benzene has the chemical formula C6H6 where each Carbon atom is bonded to two other Carbon atoms and a single Hydrogen atom.  The 4th bond pair of electrons from each Carbon atom is delocalised, creating a delocalised cloud of electrons above and below the plane.  Benzene is an hexagonal ring in shape with bond angles of 120degrees between Carbon atoms.All the bond lengths in Benzene are equal. Because of the system of delocalised electrons Benzene is also far more energetically stable than it should be, its extra stability is know as its delocalisation energy.Because of its increased stability Benzene will not readily unergo addition reactions, instead it undergoes addition reactions whereby a Hydrogen atom is replaced by another atom or group (e.g. Chlorine in the chlorination of Benzene).
