About Me

I am a Biochemistry Undergraduate student at the University of St Andrews. I have a passion for chemistry and enjoy encouraging students to fulfil their potential within the subject.
As a student myself I understand the pressures of exams and learning. I wish to provide a tutoring service where the student can choose what the best way for them to learn is and to deliver this for them. I have a comprehensive understanding of my subject and the Scottish curriculum (SQA) and so can deliver exam targeted advice.
I have experience mentoring National 5 students as well as general experience working with young people.

Biology lessons for middle school, high school and college students!
Biology is a powerful science that becomes more and more influential as time passes. Biology allows for us not only to understand the world around us better but also helps us understand what goes on within our own bodies. Having studied Biology at the University of Edinburgh, I am incredibly passionate about the subject. Currently I am pursuing my research Masters degree in Biochemistry, working closely with protein design. I believe research is incredibly thrilling and learning about new research techniques and ideas feels like having a cookbook you can cook something fun and novel out of everyday! I would love to share my passion for Biology with you!

Oxbridge Application Preparation (Life Sciences Admissions)
Are you thinking of applying to Oxbridge for Life Sciences (Natural Sciences, Biology, Biomedicine)? With acceptance rates averaging around 15%, you want to give yourself the best chance to get that offer! And this is where I come in. I hold a 1st from Oxford in Biological Sciences and have volunteered as an Admissions mentor for over three years, coaching students through the application process. We will work together to adapt the course to your needs, working flexibly to focus on the areas where you want extra support. How can I help? - Personal Statement Support: Writing a personal statement doesn’t have to be painful. We will create an initial outline using your experiences and interests, producing a clear message and story throughout. Then, I will provide editing support, helping you to cut words down for the strict character limits. - Course and College Selection: Overwhelmed by the choice of courses/colleges? I can provide personal, insider knowledge into each college, helping you to make the right decision for you. - Tutorial Prep: Using my knowledge of the tutorial system, I design personalised tutorials based on your interests, fostering your love of science and building your confidence. Self-belief is an underrated skill, and together we will work to develop your confidence to speak up, even if you think you are wrong. - Interview Prep: The infamous Oxbridge interviews will not be as scary as they seem after our sessions. Using the self-belief and scientific analysis skills developed in our tutorial sessions, you will feel well-equipped to deal with an interview scenario. Initially, we will go through my bank of interview questions, discussing your approach and response to questions. As time goes on, we will start to practice mock interviews, 30-45 minutes of questions with feedback given afterwards. - Admissions Test Prep: Many courses demand rigorous admissions tests, which require sound subject knowledge and lateral thinking. We will work on these together, helping you to become accustomed to the style of the questions. I look forward to hearing from you!

Teaching chemistry to school and university students in a simplified manner
Hello students! Do you find it difficult to learn science subjects, specifically chemistry? This may be because chemistry contains some difficult or complex concepts or terms. If you are one of these people, there is no need to worry!! Hello and welcome, my students, to the right place to solve this problem, through simplifying science lessons, especially chemistry. Through these lessons, we will learn together how to deal with matters and terms that are difficult to understand, because I have extensive experience extending to more than 15 years in conveying complex concepts in a clear, easy and simple way. My goal is to make science and chemistry in general and organic chemistry in particular fascinating and understandable to everyone. As a dedicated teacher, I create an interactive and stimulating learning environment for my students using the latest methods. I am ready to share my passion and guide every student towards excellence and success in the field of science, organic chemistry, and in study in general, as I work as a mentor to students in an international institution. In addition, I have excellent communication and presentation skills, and I am patient and calm when teaching. In addition, I constantly monitor my students’ progress and regularly evaluate their understanding by constantly solving objective questions, as I care more about understanding than memorization. On the other hand, I also maintain good follow-up with parents. My approach to teaching is outcome-oriented, with an emphasis on helping students understand and master information. For university students or master’s and doctoral students, I teach natural products chemistry or phytochemistry. In this course, we will learn about methods of extracting, separating, and defining the chemical form of active chemical compounds (biologically active secondary compounds) from natural sources, such as medicinal and aromatic plants. We will also discuss knowledge of what is known as chromatography, spectroscopic devices, spectroscopic and mass analyses, and magnetic resonance. This is in addition to knowing some important applications of these active substances in various fields, such as the pharmaceutical industry, agriculture, etc. We will also learn the practical methods that are carried out in the laboratory to conduct toxicological, antioxidant, and diabetes analyses, etc. And last but not least, “For those interested in scientific research,” there is a course dedicated to learning what scientific research is, how to choose a research point, how to write scientific research, how to find the appropriate journal for publication, and everything related to this topic. Experience: About 20 years of practical experience in the field of chemistry, medicinal and aromatic plants, and pharmacy, with parallel training and private lessons for chemistry science curricula. With my qualifications and experience, I hold a master’s degree and a doctorate in organic chemistry (chemistry of natural products), in addition to other graduate degrees and a doctoral scholarship in pharmaceutical sciences in Belgium from the Erasmus Mendus Organization of the European Union.

Tim
Mathematics, Sciences: Secondary education - private lessons.
Need help with math or science? As a civil engineer, 31, I am happy to help you! Learn at your pace and with many examples to clarify the learning material. I have years of experience in teaching simple and complex material. The lessons run as follows. First of all, together we look for the student's biggest stumbling blocks. These can be related to the subject matter as well as to the study method. From there, I continue to work at the pace of the student and encourage them to ask as many questions as possible. I also give them tips and tricks, and improve their working methods where necessary. During the lesson I give many examples to make the subject matter more interesting and we solve exercises together. Once the student has mastered the exercises from the lesson, I give some more challenging exercises to also test on the deeper understanding of the subject matter. In this way I try to optimally prepare the student for his / her test or exam. However, learning should also be enjoyable. That is why I always strive for a good relationship with the student through a spontaneous and positive approach. I am also very patient. All this lowers the barrier to ask questions and improves the student's learning process. Are you interested? Do not hesitate to contact me! See you soon! Tim
