About me

I have always had a passion for learning and exploring the world around me, whether it be science, social studies or languages, to the point that acquiring new knowledge became one of my hobbies. As such, I like to infect others with my passion, which led me to a decision that no matter what I will do in the future, I want to spend part of my life teaching.

I have always had a passion for learning and exploring the world around me, whether it be science, social studies or languages, to the point that acquiring new knowledge became one of my hobbies. As such, I like to infect others with my passion, which led me to a decision that no matter what I will do in the future, I want to spend part of my life teaching.

Chemistry as a subject in school always fascinated me in particular and therefore I am currently a 1st year student of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh and I am planning to pursue my career into cancer research. I have spent a lot of my time studying chemistry extracurricularly, and I am enthusiastic to share my experience and interest in the subject.

I have been recognised by my teachers, students and friends of having a talent of explaining and conveying knowledge and since then I decided to start giving tutorials. I have experience of tutoring students from many educational backgrounds, including IB Diploma Programme and Scottish Highers, in several subjects such as Chemistry, Biology, Maths and English, and I am certain that my empirical view on the subject of Chemistry and my tutoring approach will prove helpful for students from any background.

Having recently graduated from high school myself, I am up to date with what is required from students for their final exams and have a fresh experience of coping with the challenges this requires of them.

About my sessions

I see Chemistry as an area of knowledge where complex ideas and concepts are built upon a set of basic notions. Therefore, during the sessions, I always make sure that my tutees understand the connection of what they're learning to the foundations of the subjects so that they don't simply learn by heart, but even if they forget a fact they can always recall a logical explanation to it. I never simply give my tutees facts to remember, but always try to stimulate them to come up with th...

I see Chemistry as an area of knowledge where complex ideas and concepts are built upon a set of basic notions. Therefore, during the sessions, I always make sure that my tutees understand the connection of what they're learning to the foundations of the subjects so that they don't simply learn by heart, but even if they forget a fact they can always recall a logical explanation to it. I never simply give my tutees facts to remember, but always try to stimulate them to come up with the facts themselves based on what they already know. From my experience, this approach proved very effective as over time tutees learn to find explanations to concepts even if they never learned about them before. I try to show my tutees the connections between individual topics in Chemistry - seeing the subject as a whole is essential for the exam, where the questions are focused on testing all of the knowledge students should have mastered.

When my tutees get something wrong, I always try to make sure that I know what is the cause of their mistake and try to find other ways of explaining the difficult concepts. A powerful tool in learning Chemistry is analogies, so that I always try to relate the topics discussed to real life. This way, even concepts that seem abstract when talking about things at a molecular level can be easy to understand. To stimulate my students’ interest in the subject, I always try to make my analogies applicable and, where possible, humourous.

So so good! A lot of what I revise in chemistry are just definitions and learning the reactions, but he helped me understand why certain things happen, and refers to links to other topics like atomic structure, structure and bonding, etc.
