PhD Scientist and Tutor in Chemistry and Biology

I have a PhD in Biomedical Science and Endocrinology and an MSc. in Pharmaceutical Science and Medicinal Chemistry. I thus have extensive experience in Chemistry and Biology at all levels.

I have previously worked as a Research Scientist at the University of Cambridge. Prior to that I was an Assistant Lecturer at the University of Wolverhampton teaching Biology and Chemistry and related subjects. I have also been teaching A Level Biology and Chemistry including GCSE Science since 2006. I also help prepare A Level students for university by offering advise on subjects necessary for particular courses, career advise and preparation for university entry interviews.

I have gained a rich perspective on how to effectively deliver the subject matter to students and used to explaining complex ideas in a straightforward and engaging way. With my wide range of experience I can help you both understand the underlying Chemistry and Biology and give you lots of that all important, practice in tackling exam questions
Please get in touch and I will be more than happy to assist.

David is a lovely, patient and professional tutor. He clearly has a vast knowledge of his subjects. He has already proved to be a great help to my son with his Chemistry after just one session. I have booked him for more lessons and would highly recommend him. I only wish I had booked him sooner.....

David has been a great teacher who sees the direct need of the student and is able to tackle the issues head on. He is able to engage the student with the subject and from this we have seen a drastic improvement in results and he students confidence within the subject has increased. Will definitely be recommending him!

David is great teacher , he was able to help me out with my synoptic question and explain each step in detail. He was also able to prepare the answer before hand so I could go over it and be prepared for his lesson . I would recommend him if you need any help in chemistry.
