About me

Hi! I'm Conor and I'm a Chemical Engineering student at the University of Birmingham. I love my degree and I'm glad I chose it for two reasons in particular:


1: Being able to apply knowledge gained at school and college to my degree is really rewarding. It has a great mix of Chemistry, Physics and Maths, which was the perfect mix for me and what made it stand out when I deciding what to study.

Hi! I'm Conor and I'm a Chemical Engineering student at the University of Birmingham. I love my degree and I'm glad I chose it for two reasons in particular:


1: Being able to apply knowledge gained at school and college to my degree is really rewarding. It has a great mix of Chemistry, Physics and Maths, which was the perfect mix for me and what made it stand out when I deciding what to study.


2: I'm developing really useful skills that an engineer will need throughout their career. From the first few weeks we were being taught about the design of processing plants, which made me feel like I was being prepared for a career in engineering.


With exams, I always made sure I was prepared by the time exam day arrived. Practice is also key - the more questions I did, the more understanding I gained. These tips, although perhaps obvious, should benefit anyone wanting succeed. For A-Levels, the added incentive of a university place at stake hopefully provides you with even more motivation to succeed as it did for me!


At university I enjoy playing tennis and football. I'm also part of the fundraising society, which involved taking part in the Three Peaks Challenge this year to raise money for charity!

About my sessions

It is important that the student and I set aims together and identify areas that they find more challenging, addressing these as a priority before moving on to topics that are less of a stumbling block.


Repetition is key to memorising and understanding concepts, so I would the first part of the lesson summarising and reviewing the previous week's topic(s) and perhaps working through one or two questions before progressing on to new content to ensure understanding.

Repetition is key to memorising and understanding concepts, so I would the first part of the lesson summarising and reviewing the previous week's topic(s) and perhaps working through one or two questions before progressing on to new content to ensure understanding.


With new content, I would explain the topic to the student, encouraging them to ask questions whenever they feel the need to (to encourage a dialogue about), before looking at a question together, guiding them through the necessary steps to achieve the correct answer. For topics that require more memory recall (such as colours of flame tests in chemistry, for example), visual representations would be useful to help retain necessary information.


I would let the student know what the next lesson would entail, allowing them time to prepare independently before the next lesson. Having found these subjects very interesting myself at school and college, I would show an enthusiasm for the topics, which would make the lesson more interesting to the student.
