About me

I'm Dan, a Chemical Engineering student at the University of Cambridge. Chemical Engineering is not, as many people think, about making bombs or strange and niche chemicals but is instead how you can create "stuff" on an industrial scale in a way that is economically viable, environmentally friendly and safe. What that "stuff" is could be anything: oil, pharmaceuticals, toothpaste, washing powder, chocolate, you name it.

What that "stuff" is could be anything: oil, pharmaceuticals, toothpaste, washing powder, chocolate, you name it.


Because of this, Chemical Engineers have to know a little bit of everything. We have to know the physics behind fluid flows in pipes, how chemicals react with each other and sometimes we even need biology for drug production.


The biggest skill I've developed as an engineer is how to become a successful problem solver. Solving an engineering problem requires you to distil a lot of information and present it to yourself in a coherent and intuitive manner so that you can make some meaningful conclusions. This is especially helpful for tutoring as it has enabled me to explain hard concepts as simply as possible.

About my sessions

The structure of the sessions will depend a great deal on how the student I am tutoring learns. For some, their knowledge of a course may be excellent but they may struggle with approaching wordy exam questions, in which case lots of problem solving exercises may be more suitable. For others, there may be gaps or misconceptions in knowledge that need ironing out in which case some context may be given to a student before we look at any problems.

I am very encouraging of neatly presented work - it can really help make things easier! Genuine curiosity for the subject is also great so I like to push students who understand the subject well to think about more complex ideas.
