Hi, I’m Jake and I’m a fourth year undergraduate at the University of Warwick studying Chemistry currently working at a first.
I know how stressful exams can be, but I hope I can help with theory and exam technique. Due to my college being small, I was the only person in my chemistry class, and so, I have personal experience of one to one teaching and fully understand the benefits it brings. Chemistry is often seen as one of the hardest sciences, but I also think it is one of the most important, and is the most rewarding! But with a bit of work, Chemistry can definitely be mastered and is worth it.
Personally, I love organic chemistry and a good mechanism but I know its not for everyone. Also, I never did maths at AS/A-Level so I understand and can relate with how some students can struggle with the maths aspects within chemistry, however, through a little work throughout college, and a lot of practice, I now quite enjoy the maths and never felt like I was disadvantaged by not doing A-level maths.
The sessions are directed by you. First, I would cover the theory that you find difficult, explaining it in a straightforward but memorable way. I also believe that getting involved and practicing is one of the best ways to learn. So, during the tutorial I will check that the concepts have been grasped, so you never feel like you don’t really understand. We will do this through past exam questions and quick quizzes. In my opinion, the best way to learn is by trying, so don’t worry if you get it wrong the first time, though you might surprise yourself. We will always go through the answers to make sure you fully understand. If there is nothing in particular that you would like to be covered, we can either go over past papers (I’m happy to mark them), going over exam technique or we can go over the syllabus or I can even help you with homework- it’s completely up to you.
