About Adam

A Ph.D. student was currently writing up my thesis in Chemistry - specifically in the synthesis of new compounds to be used in organic electronics. I have a BSc Hons in Chemistry and an MSc in Drug Design and Discovery. I have tutored at the undergraduate level, and I have demonstrated and taught in undergraduate chemistry labs, including handling assignment marking and feedback. I am based in Glasgow, and I am an easy-to-speak-to, laid back person. I am passionate about learning, in particular in learning science.

 I believe that everyone should have access to learn at least a basic level of science as it drives the world around us today. I have a wide range of experience in traditional chemistry through to current modern techniques and methods. I am well versed in both theoretical and practical chemistry. My main field is synthetic organic chemistry with a scope towards materials (solar cells in particular). 

Through my studies I have also covered a range of physics, maths, and computing, as well as research methods and planning. I am highly motivated, passionate, and organised. I look forward to helping you achieve your own goals whether they are to improve a grade, pass a test, or just learn for pleasure or personal interest.

Availability: I am extremely flexible and often available at any time, providing there is at least some notice. For online tuition I will typically be available any time.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Tutoring Experience:

During my PhD I demonstrated in the undergraduate teaching laboratories, where I showed students how to correctly perform their experiments. I would cover the theory of the experiment, explain why it was important, highlight any important aspects and explain the best approach to completing the work. I would then receive and mark lab reports, giving feedback and providing any required additional help or details that each student required.

 Additionally, during my MSc I tutored an undergraduate student one-to-one because they were unhappy with their grade (a grade C). After some weeks of tuition the student attained a B+, missing out on an A by a few percent. I like to ensure the student understands what the underlying theory, reasoning, and application of the topic is.

 I don't think rote memorisation is a particularly strong approach, especially without ensuring the basic foundations have been understood. I am happy to work towards achieving an improved grade, passing an exam, or simply learning for personal interest.
