About me

Hi, my name is Jonny and I am in my second year studying Chemistry at Oxford University, taking modules in Chemistry, Physics and Maths. I have experience tutoring secondary school maths and science students and I have a passion for teaching and enthusing others in science. I am a patient, friendly and enthusiastic tutor who can help you fulfil your potential.

My Sessions

The aim of the sessions will be to focus on the specific areas that you feel you need to work on. I feel strongly that the more different ways that you hear a topic explained, the deeper understanding you gain. Before the session, you can send me a list of the topic(s) that you personally struggle with. We can then spend about half the session working to understand the topics and then move onto past paper questions targeted to the problem areas for the rest of the session. I understand that often asking a question in class can be difficult and this will be the main success of our sessions. The more questions you ask, the more you learn and I am here to answer all those questions, whether they are big or small.

I’ve got Uni/Oxbridge interviews…help!?

Having been through the interview process myself and come out (alive!) on the other side, I think that I am really well placed to help you feel more confident and prepared for a Chemistry interview, whether it’s at Oxford, Imperial, Bristol or anywhere else. The best preparation you can get is simply chatting about Chemistry. To help you practise, we will start off discussing the Chemistry you are familiar with and then move onto challenging and unfamiliar (but hopefully exciting) territory. I am also available for specific Oxbridge tutoring.

What next?

If you have any questions about me or what I offer, please do send a ‘WebMail’ or book a ‘Meet the Tutor Session’! Just let me know what subject and which exam board you are struggling with.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Questions Jonathan has answered

Please can you explain E/Z isomers?

1. Assign priority to the four groups attached to the double bond, by adding up their atomic numbers.

2. Work out which are the two highest priority (highest atomic number) - one on each carbon.

3. If these two are on the Zame Zide (same side) of the carbon, then it's Z but if they're on oppositE sides then it's E
