PhD BSc (with honours, 2:1), MSc (with distinction)

I am currently finishing my PhD in Environmental Geochemistry at Newcastle University. My expertise lies in aquatic geochemistry, biogeochemistry, hydrogeology and mineralogy. I am happy to help you with any aspect of environmental science/geosciences you may be struggling with, and will always offer a free meeting to discuss your needs.

About me

I have a BSc (Hons) degree in Earth Sciences from University of Glasgow, and an MSc (with distinction) degree in Hydrogeology from University of Birmingham. I am currently in the final stages of writing up my PhD thesis which has focused on how Fe-bearing minerals help clean up pollutants in the subsurface.

Tutor Experience

I have taught undergraduate and masters students during my PhD. I believe that in order for students to fully realise their potential, an understanding of how they best respond to learning is crucial. That being said, I will often explain something in multiple ways, perhaps using different analogies, in order to understand how a student responds to my teaching.

Topic Expertise

If you are currently an undergradute/masters level student studying Earth Science/Geology/Environmental Science, I can help with the following subjects:
- "catch-up" fundamental chemistry and maths skills
- geochemistry (aquatic chemistry/inorganic geochemistry)
- geology (petrology, mineralogy)
- hydrogeology (physical and chemical hydrogeology)
- environmental geoscience (contaminants, water resources)

I am happy to tutor on the following subjects for school level:

A Level: Geology, Physical Geography, Environmental Science, Inorganic and Physical Chemistry
GCSE: Mathematics, Chemistry, Geography, Geology, Physics
