About me

I am currently studying chemistry at the University of York, specifying in medicinal and biological chemistry. An area I’m particularly interested in is how molecules interact with biological systems, such as organic molecules or transition metal complexes in medicines. I believe that chemistry is an integral subject which combines all of the sciences to explain many of the fundamental principles in science.

About my sessions

In the free video session, we will put together a list of topics that the student finds most challenging and would like to cover. In the following tutorials, I will spend the first half explaining the topic, especially tackling any particular issues that the student would like to go through with this topic. In the next half of the session, we will go through exam some questions together and the student can ask me any questions that they may have from work set in the classroom. I will prepare...

In the free video session, we will put together a list of topics that the student finds most challenging and would like to cover.

In the next half of the session, we will go through exam some questions together and the student can ask me any questions that they may have from work set in the classroom. I will prepare the tutorials in advance with the aim of including helpful diagrams, notes and examples to go through in the sessions, I also include a copy of the specification for that topic, highlighting any key points. If the student wants, I will set a couple of homework questions after the tutorial sessions in order to reinforce the student's knowledge of the topics that we cover. so that they become confident in answering these questions. I will include my copy of the answers, but if they have any questions or problems we can sort them out in the next tutorial. Where possible, I will also try and give some ‘real life context’ to topics and questions, in order to demonstrate their importance.

My daughter (Yr 10) has been having maths lessons with Ruby for a few weeks now, and we are both extremely impressed. Ruby’s teaching style is fantastic. She is relaxed, friendly and encouraging, and has quickly established an excellent rapport with my daughter, who is already seeing the benefits in the classroom. She has told me she feels much more confident in the areas covered during sessions with Ruby. It is evident that Ruby is supremely qualified to teach maths, and puts a great deal of effort into preparing sessions in advance, setting homework, and is always happy to go over things and answer any questions my daughter may have. I have no hesitation in recommending Ruby as a maths tutor, and indeed I already have (to a friend looking for a tutor). Thank you Ruby.
