About me

I am a second year chemistry student at the University of Edinburgh. I have volunteered as a classroom assistant in a GCSE maths class, and I believe my experience with the new syllabus will be useful to new students. This experience has meant that I have practice explaining concepts to students, as well as practice helping students through questions. I also took part in an outreach event at my school, where I taught a short lesson on solids, liquids and gases to primary school children and h...

I am a second year chemistry student at the University of Edinburgh. I have volunteered as a classroom assistant in a GCSE maths class, and I believe my experience with the new syllabus will be useful to new students. This experience has meant that I have practice explaining concepts to students, as well as practice helping students through questions. I also took part in an outreach event at my school, where I taught a short lesson on solids, liquids and gases to primary school children and helped them through an experiment. Throughout school I enjoyed the problem solving elements to science and maths, as well as the interesting real world applications. Having been through the Cambridge admissions process, I know how challenging the application process can be, and I would love to help out others going through the same experiences. I love chemistry and maths and hope I will be able to communicate this enthusiasm to students.

About my sessions

I will plan lessons directly according to the specification, so that I can ensure that each lesson moves a step further towards exam ready. Within this I will set aside time for feedback from the student so I can plan future lessons to focus on and revise areas they find difficult. Instead of working chronologically through the course I would begin by finding out the topics the student is less comfortable with, and use that as a basis for my lesson plans. I would adapt my teaching methods acc...

I will plan lessons directly according to the specification, so that I can ensure that each lesson moves a step further towards exam ready. Within this I will set aside time for feedback from the student so I can plan future lessons to focus on and revise areas they find difficult. Instead of working chronologically through the course I would begin by finding out the topics the student is less comfortable with, and use that as a basis for my lesson plans. I would adapt my teaching methods according to the topic - for example using models of molecules for topics such as chirality. I believe maths and chemistry are best learnt through practice, so I will make sure each lesson includes practice questions to consolidate knowledge. I will end each lesson with a question or example from a previous topic, using spaced repetition of content to make revision a continuous process rather than a last minute rush.
