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.
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.
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
BSc (with Honours, 2:1) Earth Sciences, University of Glasgow, 2013
MSc (with Distinction) Hydrogeology, University of Birmingham, 2015
PhD Environmental Geochemistry, Newcastle University, expected 2020
