I'm a postdoctoral research associate at l'Université Libre de Bruxelles, and have been living in Brussels for the past 3 years. Originally from Glasgow, I did both my PhD and my master's at the University of Strathclyde. My main area of work has been a mix of chemistry, chemical engineering, and physics, all focusing on certain aspects of pharmaceutical manufacturing (everything from drug discovery to automated large scale processes).
I'm now in the process of becoming a full-time tutor and education coach, since I absolutely love helping students learn, improve, and achieve their goals.
Outside of academia, I'm a huge sports fanatic; I play football for a championship winning club here in Brussels (called RBBFC), and thoroughly enjoy cycling and weight lifting. Apart from that, I'm also a very extroverted person who loves socialising and spending time with friends.
I been tutoring since the end of 2015, when I started on the side of my PhD to make some extra money. Immediately I loved it. Since then, I’ve been tutoring chemistry, maths, and physics to students of varying levels, from National5/GCSE to university level. For students at high school, I generally cover all 3 subjects equally. At university, however, it’s more commonly physics or maths, since students are required to take elective classes in these subjects, which, for my clients, are not their strong points.
Aside from 1-2-1 tutoring (both in person and online), I’ve given several lectures at university during my PhD. This was to fill in for my supervisor, who was the professor of the class. The lectures were for a crystallization class that was part of the Advanced Pharmaceutical Manufacturing course at Strathclyde University, Glasgow. In this class, I taught the concepts and theory of crystallization, as well as one lecture on academic writing, to help the students with their end of year theses.
I teach chemistry, maths, and physics. For the past 7 years, I’ve taught these subjects for a variety of courses, having had students from all over the world. Such courses include National 5, GCSE/IGCSE, Highers/Advanced Highers, A/A* Level, IB, AP, and university level (for students at various universities including: Strathclyde, Glasgow, Bath, Manchester, and Imperial College London).
I have a PhD in Chemistry (more specifically, in Industrial Crystallization) from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK.
