About me

About me

Hi my name is Megan. I live in the North East of England and I am a fourth year Chemistry student at Durham University. I am very enthuastic and passionate about chemistry so I would love to tutor you if you are struggling! 

How can I help you?

I have recently been at school and done my A levels so I understand how hard and stressful they can be. But hopefully I can help you with revision tips and how to know what the examiner wants you to know in the exam, so you can get all of the marks you deserve! 

I did the AQA exam board for GCSE and A level Chemistry but don't worry I can still help even though you may do a different exam to me. 

Experience

I have been tutoring on My TutorWeb since December 2014. In that time I got to know and tutor two A level students (both OCR exam board). One of which of which improved from an E to an A!

 In college I sat in a GCSE maths classroom and tutored two international students

I tutored GCSE chemistry to my sister and because of that her grade went from an E to a B. 

I tutored A level maths to my sister and her boyfriend.

 I loved all of these experiences I had a great sense of satisfaction. In the future I would love to be a teacher or University lecturer, so I would love to get the opportunity to tutor again. 

Please don't hesistate to get in touch with me, I would love to hear from you! :)

Questions Megan has answered

Which has a lower boiling point chlorine or bromine, and why?

Chlorine, as chlorine has fewer electrons shells than bromine. As a result, chlorine is smaller and has a smaller atomic radius

The difference in size, relates to boiling point of the molecule. This is because the size effects the strength of the forces between the molecules (intermolecular forces). The strength of the intermolecular forces increases with increasing size of the molecule. Therefore, bromine is larger and has stronger intermolecular forces, meaning it requires more heat energy to break the strong bonds (high boiling point). So in conclusion chlorine has a lower boiling point.
