About me

I am a chemist at Edinburgh University and I love my subject as it is a combination of sciences, constantly requiring application of critical thinking, analysis and problem solving together with mastering of widely applicable study techniques. Despite being a top student, when I first started learning chemistry I was moving countries and I struggled to keep up with my peers who had been studying it for two years. I was scared of my lack of understanding and ultimately I disliked the class, bu...

I am a chemist at Edinburgh University and I love my subject as it is a combination of sciences, constantly requiring application of critical thinking, analysis and problem solving together with mastering of widely applicable study techniques. Despite being a top student, when I first started learning chemistry I was moving countries and I struggled to keep up with my peers who had been studying it for two years. I was scared of my lack of understanding and ultimately I disliked the class, but I rose up to the challenge and tackled the issue. After two years of tutoring lessons, and four more years of passion-driven learning, here I am studying Chemistry as my career path! Tutoring changed my life helping me to achieve "the impossible" and allowing me to discover my path! My international experience encouraged me to take full academic ownership and responsibility early on by managing, assessing and redirecting my own learning and getting in contact with the right people to help me through it and adapting to different styles of teaching and learning. My IGCSE and IB results made my university application process very successful worldwide, resulting in a wide range of great opportunities including second year entry offers and scholarships. I found Edinburgh to be my perfect fit allowing me to attend an excellent course and to be part of the Women's First Volleyball Team competing in Scotland and in the UK and to be a Representative for the EdiUni Chemistry Society.

About my sessions

I have become very familiar with the specific support that students aiming at high academic performances need from a tutor: study tools, strategies, knowledge of the material, exam techniques and subject-specific skills. My work is aimed at creating a solid course base by consolidating fundamental subject knowledge and skills on which to build and eventually reach the student's full potential, allowing confident performance at the best of one's abilities.

I have become very familiar with the specific support that students aiming at high academic performances need from a tutor: study tools, strategies, knowledge of the material, exam techniques and subject-specific skills. My work is aimed at creating a solid course base by consolidating fundamental subject knowledge and skills on which to build and eventually reach the student's full potential, allowing confident performance at the best of one's abilities. Lessons will include discussions aimed at the fine understanding of the theoretical knowledge and exercises including exam practice to ensure effective application of knowledge. Discussing course material with competent and skilled individuals with experience in the exam requirements is essential for a deeper understanding of the subject. It is also crucial to address any questions along the way: when it comes to learning no question is a silly question! Lastly, application and practice of the theoretical knowledge through extensive exercises and past paper practice ensures mastering of the material learnt and successful exam performance. These are the techniques that have resulted in my academic achievements together with individual, organised and thorough note-taking of the material as an introductory step. I am looking forward to working with students striving to walk into their exams with confidence and awareness of their abilities and preparation, and to help them achieve their academic goals!

Anna has been helping me for the past few weeks in chemistry and has been very helpful. She is always keen to re-explain concepts I haven’t properly understood and in addition, she always includes past paper questions during the lessons and I find this extremely useful.
