About me

Hello parents and students! My name is Promeet and I am from Hamburg, Germany. I am a Master's student at Durham University studying chemistry, and I have a Bilingual IB. Outside the classroom, I love playing piano and guitar, playing tennis, and spending time with my friends.

Hello parents and students! My name is Promeet and I am from Hamburg, Germany. I am a Master's student at Durham University studying chemistry, and I have a Bilingual IB. Outside the classroom, I love playing piano and guitar, playing tennis, and spending time with my friends.

I enjoy chemistry is because it is the central science. Studying chemistry lets me explore and understand both the physical as well as the biological aspects of the world. My aptitude and passion for mathematics and science, alongside my patience and strong work ethic truly set me apart. I have been tutoring since the age of 15, because I was always a natural teacher, so I have a fair bit of experience under my belt!

Further, as Student Board President in my school, I developed excellent communication and problem solving skills, which allow me to explain difficult concepts well and approach them from different angles.

As a tutor, I will help my students improve, by developing a solid foundational knowledge of the material being covered, because knowing key concepts makes encountering new ideas much easier!

Of course, learning is also much easier if you are enjoying yourself. Science is strange and fascinating- something we forget while studying the dry theory behind it. My goal is to make students more enthusiastic, by explaining the significance of what they are studying, so the material is more tangible.

About my sessions

My tutorials will be delivered in a “chalk and talk” manner, meaning I will be making notes on a screen, while explaining the material as I go along. I expect students to copy down the notes from the session and ask questions at any point! This has several benefits:

- it makes the tutorial more interactive and interesting.

- the student will have a comprehensive set of notes they can refer to at any point to jog their memory

My tutorials will be delivered in a “chalk and talk” manner, meaning I will be making notes on a screen, while explaining the material as I go along. I expect students to copy down the notes from the session and ask questions at any point! This has several benefits:

- it makes the tutorial more interactive and interesting.

- the student will have a comprehensive set of notes they can refer to at any point to jog their memory

I have found that writing things down helps me understand and remember concepts better, though it does involve a little more work. Personally, my memory is not my strong suit; I was never great at memorizing large chunks of information, so I had to rely on having a strong understanding of the basics and deriving what I needed to know from that.

The best way to accomplish that was applying what I learned repeatedly by doing lots of practice questions, as these require you to apply your knowledge. The more questions you do, the more you use what you learned, and the more familiar you become with it. You should no longer need to memorize facts and concepts- you just know them. It’s much like memorizing the individual steps of how to tie a tie rather than practicing it and just knowing how to do it!

As such, I will try to refer back to previous concepts covered and use short quizzes so we have some time to revise old material as well, instead of just covering new topics.
