About me

I’m Jess, a first year Chemistry student at the University of Liverpool. I believe that Chemistry is an important subject as it can open so many doors, even leading to groundbreaking research. As a whole, the sciences help lead to a greater understanding of how the world works, which is why I find them so interesting. It is a subject all about asking questions. Chemistry is a challenging subject, as I found at GCSE, A level and now during my degree, but I have learnt many ways of approaching this challenge which I now hope to pass on to other students. As part of my degree I also took an advanced Maths module which has improved by problem solving skills as well as my ability to help students with Maths. I have experience tutoring both GCSE Chemistry and Maths.


Outside of my degree I am an avid reader, and love writing fantasy and science fiction. I have several short stories and a novel on the go.


I understand just how challenging the sciences can be, so my aim is to help students feel as confident as possible in their abilities, by teaching them ways to face problems and increase their understanding. I hope that I can help!

About my sessions

I understand just how daunting exams can be, so my aim is to make students feel confident in their abilities. In my sessions I will start by asking the student what topics they are struggling with, so I can focus on giving them a greater understanding by talking through the topics as well as going through practice questions. I like to ask students questions about the topics during the session, to help them engage with it and test their knowledge. For practise questions I will often go through some examples with the student first, then have them answer a similar question themselves, helping them along the way if they need it. These will usually be exam style questions so that I can also help improve their exam technique to help them feel ready when exams come around.


One thing that really helped me when revising for my own exams was teaching someone else a topic after I had learnt it, as explaining it myself was the best way to see if I understood it. I may get students to do this with me, to test their knowledge and improve their confidence.


Students can also feel free to bring homework or tests they struggled with in school and we can go through them, or any other questions they have. I do not set homework as I understand they can have a lot of commitments, but if they would like some questions to have a go at outside of the session they may ask, and we can go through them next time. It is all about what works best for the student.

Questions Jessamy has answered

How does increasing the temperature affect the yield of products of a reaction at equilibrium, where the forward reaction is exothermic?

The position of equilibrium changes after the temperature increases according to Le Chatelier's principle, which states that if a change is applied to a system in equilibrium, then the position of equilibrium will move to counteract that change. As the forward reaction is exothermic, equilibrium will shift left in the endothermic direction to reduce the temperature, as the endothermic reaction will absorb the heat that has been added. As the system now favours the reverse reaction, the yield of products would therefore decrease.The main marking points in this answer are stating whether equilibrium moves left or right, the reason for this (whether it moves in the endothermic or exothermic direction), and whether the yield of products would increase or decrease.The position of equilibrium changes after the temperature increases according to Le Chatelier's principle, which states that if a change is applied to a system in equilibrium, then the position of equilibrium will move to counteract that change.
