Degree: Chemistry (Bachelors) - Bristol University
I am a second year student at Bristol University studying Chemistry. I have always enjoyed chemistry and maths and hope that the students that I teach will come away with the same enthusiasm. Whilst I was at school I volunteered with children of differing physical disabilities so I can be very patient and keep my calm when under pressure.
I want my tutoring sessions to be predoinantly student led so all material covered will be specific to each student. I will use diagrams, video links and as many ways I can think of to enable the student to fully understand a topic. Most importantly I hope to make the sessions fun and engaging, as well as educational!

I would first get the student to find the elements on the Periodic Table, and work out how many valence electrons each atom had. Then I would get them to draw the structures of hydrogen and chlorine using the dot and cross diagram method (showing only the valence electrons). The student would then need to work out the type of bonding in the molecule, and we could briefly discuss ionic and covalent bonding (here it would be covalent bonding). The HCl molecule could then be drawn, using the dot and cross method. I would then ask the student how they knew if they were right, and speak about having a full valence shell after bonding.see more
I would ask the student what they understood of percentages and if they understood the relationship between fractions and percentages. I would explain that 1% of a value is the same as 1/100 of a value. The student would work out what 1/100 of the value is, and then multiply this by 45 to get the 45%.see more
