About me

I'm an undergrad student at Warwick, studying for an MChem degree. It allows me to put together my two favourite subjects: chemistry and maths. I've always appreciated the fact that you can derive or justify most things with just the aid of a few basic principles and equations and believe that the key to a solid understanding in both of the subjects is to have a good grounding in the basics.

I believe the best way to practice for an exam is to just get stuck in with past papers...

I believe the best way to practice for an exam is to just get stuck in with past papers and keep trying questions until the terminology and concepts are like second nature to you, plus it's always more interesting that staring into a textbook! However, before you can do this, it's important to have that strong grounding which is what I'll aim to teach you.

I spend my free time in a variety of ways, like playing the piano and guitar, reading and swimming. I used to swim competitively but now I just swim for myself; I've always found sport to be the perfect way to rest the mind after hard studies and focus on the physique.

About my sessions

Sometimes, a concept won't make sense until you look at it in a specific way. I find that simple analogies and likening it to reality often helps make things click, so I'll offer as many of those as I can. I'm a very patient person, so don't hesitate to ask me the same question several times until it genuinely makes sense. We've all been there!

I can be as flexible as needs be with my lessons, if you need to brush over smalls things then we can spend a lesson filling...

I can be as flexible as needs be with my lessons, if you need to brush over smalls things then we can spend a lesson filling in the gaps, if you want to go over a whole topic then I'm happy to spend a couple of lessons going over it in detail. Also, I think it's important for lessons to be dynamic, so I encourage questions and conversation so that it's not just one-way. 

I'll always try to consolidate a lesson with a question, just to make sure you can put what you learnt into practice, and more generally I'll help you understand those tricky exam questions that distinguish the top students.
