Why Study Chemistry?

Chemistry deals with the nature of reactions and the rules that govern them. Chemistry lies at the interface between Biology and Physics and has found use in applications to both disciplines. For the budding scientist or engineer, a solid foundation in chemistry is important whether in quantum mechanics, synthetic protein construction, or understanding how drugs interact with the body. Thus, chemistry attempts to answer many of the questions that students will have already asked of the world around them.

Chemistry Tutors

Our chemistry tutors have all studied chemistry at university level. They are adept at explaining concepts visually and mathematically. As chemistry becomes more complicated, developing an approach to problem solving through drawings and well-formulated equations is key to a student's success. Our tutors provide supplementary practice problems and teaching in order to solidify understanding.

As part of my undergraduate medical studies at The University of Cambridge, I completed a degree in preclinical medicine with a year spent in neuroscience. I am now completing my medical degree at the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine. My academic interests have led me to pursue research in the areas of neurophysiology, paediatrics and public health.

With five years of tutoring under my belt, I have accumulated hundreds of hours of experience. I currently have some students that are studying for their GCSEs and others that I am helping with their application to medical school, including BMAT, UCAT, personal statements and interview preparation. Moreover, I have extensive experience leading seminars for groups of students both on scientific topics and elements of the medical school admissions process. ...
I am a graduate from Cambridge with 6 years teaching experience at some of the best schools in the country, including St Paul's School, helping students of all ages and abilities understand and appreciate chemistry.
