Information about Adi

My name is Dr Adi and I`m a scientist with a passion for education.

I was born and raised in London before moving up to Leeds to do my undergraduate studies, where I graduated top of my year with a first class master`s degree in chemistry. I then moved back to London where I completed a PhD in organometallic chemistry, receiving their ";Outstanding PhD thesis"; award. I spent a year working in Japan as a postdoctoral research fellow before continuing my research at the University of Manchester. I have now moved back to London where I plan to embark on a career in secondary education by undertaking a PGCE.

I have tutored formally and informally my entire adult life. I have tutored university students on a 1 to 1 basis, and was trusted with a formal first year inorganic undergraduate tutor group during my PhD studies. I have also tutored students through their GCSE science and A Level chemistry exams. I also work with a local primary school as scientific outreach and education are very important to me.

As far as my teaching is concerned, I am very patient and ask constant questions to make sure that the core concepts are fully understood. I ground as many concepts as possible in real life scenarios and make sure that you understand why a topic is important, not just necessary knowledge for an exam. I avoid focusing on the memorisation of bulk material, preferring instead to teach simple rules that can be applied to a variety of related problems. If you are willing to work hard, then I am willing to push you hard!

I enjoy teaching science at GCSE level and chemistry at A level. I strongly believe that A level tutoring should be done by either experts in the field or qualified teachers, so I leave A level biology and physics to my tutoring colleagues with more experience in those areas.

Availability: I am currently free at most times so I am able to tutor during the day in the run up to exams.

Willing to travel: 2 miles

Experience: As well as the tutoring mentioned above, I also spent a year part time as a teaching assistant in inner city primary schools.

It’s still early days, but my daughter is enjoying the lessons and feels she has a better understanding of the subjects.
