About me

I'm a 2nd year student of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh, studying towards a master's degree and planning to pursue my career into cancer research. I have always had a passion for exploring the world around me, whether it be science, social studies or arts, to the point that learning new things became one of my hobbies. I always try to infect others with my passion, so I decided that no matter where life takes me, I want to spend a part of it teaching.

I'm a 2nd year student of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh, studying towards a master's degree and planning to pursue my career into cancer research. I have always had a passion for exploring the world around me, whether it be science, social studies or arts, to the point that learning new things became one of my hobbies. I always try to infect others with my passion, so I decided that no matter where life takes me, I want to spend a part of it teaching.

Chemistry always fascinated me in particular, as a science through which the invisible world molecules becomes seen not only in strictly research applications, but also in everyday life. When teaching, I can never emphasise enough how even the most theoretical topics in chemistry are applicable to so trivial daily things like brewing your tea or seasoning your food (or even some not related to food 🙂).

I have experience of tutoring students from many educational backgrounds, including IB Diploma Programme, A-Levels, Scottish Highers and GCSE, in subjects of Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics as well as Combined Science courses. Having graduated from high school not long ago 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.

I am very enthusiastic to share my passion for science and my knowledge! Feel free to send me a message if you would like to try a Free Meeting with me!

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 will always make sure that you understand the connection of what you're learning to the foundations of the subjects so that you don't simply learn by heart, but even if you forget a fact you can always recall a logical explanation to it. I will never simply give you facts to remember, but will always try to stimulate you to come up with the...

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 will always make sure that you understand the connection of what you're learning to the foundations of the subjects so that you don't simply learn by heart, but even if you forget a fact you can always recall a logical explanation to it. I will never simply give you facts to remember, but will always try to stimulate you to come up with the facts yourself based on what you already know. From my experience, this approach proved very effective as over time you will learn to find explanations to concepts even if you have never learned about them before. I will always try to show you the intersections between individual topics in Chemistry - seeing the subject as a whole is essential for your exam, where the questions are focused on testing all of the knowledge you have to master.

If you get something wrong, I will always try to make sure that I know what is the cause of your 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 your 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.

Great help! Even though I haven't started the topic at school yet, he helped me with it already and It's really going to help me because when I do it in class because I'll be a lot more confident with it :)
