About me

Very strong 2:1 at first year in MSci Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry at Imperial College.


Awarded £10,000 funding over summer to develop my project.

Awarded, by Lord Winston, £7,000 to patent my novel technique to identify micro plastics and remove up to 99.9% down to 10 um in size. Mentioned on BBC news, RCSU magazine and obey other organisations.


Developing start-up AquaPurePlastics.con to reinvent filtration of micro plastics from water systems. Collaborating with governments and wastewater treatment plants.


I have extensive notes to share in chemistry, biology and maths.

About my sessions

Practice makes perfect. That is why I believe exposing you to as many realistic exam questions is essential as it not only gives you the confidence but also exam technique to ace those exams. I plan to make a checklist of your syllabus to ensure every minute detail is covered and you get the best understanding of your subject.


I have been a student myself and I know how stressful and daunting your summer exams can be. That is why I believe every session should be as comprehensive and enjoyable as possible, I want you to succeed and not get bored-to-death! Whether it is your GCSEs or Alevels, they are the stepping stone to gaining a place at a top university, I promise to give every session my all and provide as much support as possible with my extensive GCSE and Alevel notes, homework and extra questions as well as ‘homemade last papers that I make and orientate to your needs’.


Feedback is key as it will allow me to tailor my teaching to your style and timetable to your availability. I´ve been through the process, I´ve had my frantic mother push me for my exams- let me help you too!

Questions Riccardo has answered

Explain why Phenol is more reactive than Benzene with bromine water.

To answer this we must look at the structure of both. Phenol has an OH group attached whilst benzene has no side groups. The OH is electron donating, the P orbital on the Oxygen overlaps with the delocalised system of the benzene ring, increasing its electron density, making it a stronger nucleophile and more prone to electrophilic attack.To answer this we must look at the structure of both.

Using your knowledge of the Circulatory System, describe & explain how and why an increase in intensity of exercise leads to an increased heart rate.

Firstly we must understand what exercise does to the body and the Circulatory system. We know that muscles need ATP to contract, this is demanded much more during a more strenuous exercise. ATP is created during aerobic &anaerobic respiration. Aerobic respiration will cause more CO2 to be made, anaerobic respiration will cause lactic acid to be made- a poisonous acid that lowers the PH of blood and when in large quantities will cause cells to die as enzymes are denatured as they cannot work in the optimum PH. C02 on the other hand can form carbonic acid which dissociates to form H+ ions which will have a similar effect. In order to prevent such an event happening, our body has chemoreceptors such as in the carotid body or aortic body that detect these, higher CO2 concentrations or acidity. These receptors will send signals to the medulla oblongata causing it to, by the sympathetic nerve, send impulses to the SAN node in the heart. The SAN node will increase in rate of depolarisation, thus causing a faster rate of atrial systole and hence the AVN will also depolarise at a faster rate. THis in turn means there are a greater frequency of impulses that travelalong the bundle of his and purkyne fibres to make the ventricles contract faster and harder. A greater heart rate means CO2 is transported to the lungs faster, allowing a steeper concentration gradient to occur and allow more O2 to enter the blood, thus oxidising lactic acid to pyruvic acid, a less toxic acid, increasing the blood PH to its norm. Of course, we must remember that cells respiring faster require more oxygen for aerobic respiration and glucose. A faster heart rate means such nutrients can be transported around the body faster.Firstly we must understand what exercise does to the body and the Circulatory system.
