About me

Hi! I am a fourth year chemistry student at the University of St Andrews. I am studying an MChem Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry. I have tutored since A-Level in both Biology and Chemistry and I am very passionate about this. Teaching is a love of mine and I enjoy sharing this with others. I am positive, out going and take every opportunity to try new things and improve myself!

About my sessions

I believe that tailoring the experience to the student is the best way to improve. I will help you set and achieve your goals, whether that is understanding basic concepts to working on exam technique. I think every student requires a personalised experience and I am willing to go above and beyond to do this.

Extremely bad, we have agreed to have a lesson on Friday and paid in advance, and it was will documented in our messages, however I have done a mistake by not booking the same day but the day after. I have contacted her, she refused to refund the money and ignored all my messages. this unprofessional. I do not recommend to anyone. becareful when you book with her.

Questions Lauren has answered

Elements in the Periodic Table often show periodic trends. Describe and explain the periodic trend in atomic radius and electronegativity from Na to Cl.

Atomic Radius - As you go across the Periodic Table from left to right, the atomic radius decreases. This is because the electrons are added to the same shell and as you move from left to right. At the same time, the proton number increases. The increasing proton number has a greater effect than increasing electron number, therefore causing a greater attraction between the positively charged nucleus and the electrons in the outer shell, decreasing the radius of the atom. Electronegativity - As you go down a group the electronegativity decreases. This is because there is a greater atomic radius (and therefore less attraction). As you do across a period, the electronegativity increases. If a valence shell is half full, it is easier to gain an electron than lose one.Atomic Radius - As you go across the Periodic Table from left to right, the atomic radius decreases.
