Master's in Chemistry with Biomedicine offering maths and chemistry lessons with 5 years experience

Methodology

My teaching method focusses on problem areas for the student/s, therefore every lesson is different and specific to each student's needs. I currently tutor a 10 year old student who enjoys learning about aspects of science she does not receive in school, therefore I tailor lessons to include a fun science aspect as well as tackling elementary math that she is currently struggling with in class. Conversely, I have a 17 year old high school student who needs specific help in Chemistry for her upcoming exams. Therefore, the content in these lessons starts topical, giving her a solid foundation in the particular area she is struggling with, then we move onto exam practice. I give a generous amount of time in lessons for her to tackle past exam (or exam-like questions) while I am there as a guide, helping her problem-solving skills and encouraging her to dive into the appropriate knowledge on the subject.

Background

I have a Master's in Chemistry with Biomedicine from King's College London in London, United Kingdom. I graduated top of my class this past year (2020). I have been a private tutor for ages 10-18 for the past 5 years in Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology.

Rates

Transportation Fee : $3
Rate for online lessons : $20/h

Details

My cancellation policy is to inform me 12 hours in advance if you are unable to attend the lesson. If less time is given, then I will charge half of my usual rate for the missed lesson. I charge more per hour if college-level Chemistry or Mathematics help is required, please speak to me for more details.
