Personal Description: I am Vind. I got a PhD in Chemistry and currently working as a lecturer in a University. I am passionate about science and chemistry and teaching. I got experience teaching both undergraduate and school level. I got a MSC in Chemistry from Kings College London and got 'A' for A/L Chemistry. I got A* for all subjects in GCE O/Level exams including Science, Maths and English.
My extensive subject knowledge in chemistry and Science makes me a good teacher in the subject area. I got high school teaching experience teaching AS, A2 and GCSE Chemistry.
Tutoring Approach: I am a patient, friendly and successful tutor specialising in chemistry at GCSE and A-level and university level. I have an interactive teaching style, this includes the use of visual aids, such as diagrams via power point presentations. Additionally, I believe in making good use of all resources not only literature but also Internet based learning. Engaging with students, I ensure that I am interacting with the students and continually assessing/reviewing their progress and providing feedback to them and guide them to get higher grades. Provide home work and exam papers and help and guide for them with out additional cost.
