About Nicholas

Hi, I'm Nicholas, I'm an American/British dual national with a Ph.D. in inorganic chemistry from the University of Manchester. I also have a first class BSc in earth science from the University of Edinburgh, where I finished top of my class. I have experience running science workshops in schools and have taught 1st-year degree courses in chemistry - as well as a wealth of experience mentoring and tutoring masters students who have gone onto Ph.D. programmes themselves. Further, I have experience of working with students who have learning difficulties such as dyslexia.

I enjoy sports and arts, and spend my spare time painting, acting and playing soccer. I find the sciences fascinating and as your tutor I would intend to share that intrigue.

My aim is always to find out how the student works best and capitalise on their strengths. Usually, this involves metaphors, mind maps and quizzes! I keep an open mind to my teaching style tailoring it for each student. I am a very hard worker and driven to get the best out of my students, I believe that hard work is infectious and, hence, I put in the hours, I expect them to do the same!

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Chemistry

I am well qualified in chemistry as I have a PhD from the University of Manchester, UK. My subject area was inorganic and nuclear chemistry, but I have an good understanding of all subject areas.

Geology

I have a degree in Environmental Geoscience from the University of Edinburgh, rated in the top 25 universities globally. I finished top of my class with a number of awards including highest dissertation grade. Furthermore, soil science and mineralogy were a large part of my PhD studies.
