About me

Hiya! I`m a first year medic at Imperial College London keen to teach a range of subjects to any secondary school pupil. I've been tutoring children since Year 10 and have been tutoring in the sciences and economics since Year 12. The true beauty of these subjects is that they explain the world around us from such different perspectives. I hope to foster a real passion for the subjects in my tutees as well as a proficiency in them.  

The Sessions

I`d describe my teaching style as quite patient and understanding. As a student I`ve previously had trouble with many of the same concepts that I now teach and find that this experience has really helped make my explanations as clear as possible (I`ve been through the same struggle!)

I like to use the latest resources to run my sessions (online worksheets, exam board specific material, google sheets etc) in tandem with your syllabus to draw up a study plan for my students so that they have a clear structure and path to attaining their target grade. 

Can you help me with university applications? 

Definitely! I know the UCAS application process inside out for both science related degrees (such as medicine) and social sciences like Economics (including Oxbridge applications!)

For those bold few who want to experience 'college' as they call it across the pond, I also received offers from Ivy league universities and would be happy to help if your dream is to study in America!

Questions Ritvij has answered

How do you answer a long answer question on how buffer systems work?

1) First, state how the buffer is prepared by saying that an excess of acid reacts with a base (include the equation for this reaction)

b) Write the overall equation of the buffer system (remember to show it as reversible) 

c) State the effect of adding an acid to the mixture: there is an increase in H+ concentration, this reacts with the conjugate base and equilibrium shifts left

d) State the effect of adding an alkali: it reacts with H+ ions leading to a fall in H+ conc, equilibrium shifts to right to restore concentrations

n.b the Ka of the buffer system remains the same throughout all the concentration changes
