Information about Gerard

I am a highly skilled biological chemistry researcher with high levels of academic achievement and a number of publications (see below). I have a PhD in organic chemistry and a first class hons. degree in chemistry. I am a Royal Society of Chemistry and American Chemical Society member. I am keen to pass on my knowledge and skills to learners from all backgrounds. I have recently completed an initial teacher training course at Bradford College (July 2013). Since then I have been working on an access to HE program and around South Yorkshire and the East Midlands as a supply teacher. My specialisms are pre-university chemistry and university level organic chemistry. I have been conducting private tuition since 2011.
