About me

Who am I?

I am a third year chemistry student at Lady Margaret Hall College, Oxford. I fell in love with science and maths (Chemistry in particular) from an early age and I hope my passion comes across with my tutorials. 

With regards to experience I was a guitar tutor and I have a teaching diploma from this. This has given me many transferable skills such as being patient with students and being clear with my explanations

My Tutorials

You have total control over what we will cover. With regards to science and maths understanding the "why" is key, once you are comfortable with this we will move onto exam questions and other problems.

I will use all sorts of aids from videos, pictures, diagrams and graphs as visualising a problem helps to give an idea of where to start with it. Hopefully I will help you see science and maths in ways you never thought possible!

Oxbridge - HELP!

Being a current Oxford student, I can give advice on personal statements for chemistry. As well as this I can help to give you an idea about the interview process and would be happy to conduct mock interviews for Oxford chemistry.

How do I sign up!?

Please contact me via 'WebMail' or book a 'Meet the Tutor Session' with myself! (both accessible through this website). Please tell me what exam board you are using and what topics you are finding challenging!

I hope to meet you soon!

Questions Dafydd has answered

Explain electrophilic aromatic substitution?

Electrophilic aromatic substitution (SEAr) is an organic reaction in which an atom that is attached to an aromatic system (usually hydrogen) is replaced by an electrophile.

An electrophile is reagent that is attracted to electrons (it means electron lover!)

(Use diagram to show mechanism c.f nitration)

Explain the atomic structure of an Atom?

An Atom is made up of 3 parts, protons, neutrons and electrons. Each element has it's own number of protons and electrons which will always be the same number. The protons and neutrons make up the nucleus of the atom, this sits in the centre with the electrons orbiting it. The Atom is mostly empty space as the nucleus takes up a tiny proportion of the atom.
