"If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."
You can book a free 20 minute, no-commitment introduction with any of our tutors. How does this work?
Hi! I'm Dan, a Chemistry tutor who has been teaching in schools for over 20 years!
I first started teaching after graduating Bath university with a first class degree in Chemical Engineering. I have always had a keen interest in Chemistry and how it is used in the world around us, but it is at university where I tutored part time that I discovered how much I enjoyed combining it with teaching.
I focus on engagement when teaching, consistently asking the student questions during our sessions as the best way to cement knowledge is by being able to teach concepts as if you were explaining them to a beginner. My teaching style is patient and relaxed, as each student learns at their own pace, and may grasp some concepts easier than others.
I would love to hear from you if you would like any help with your chemistry studies, get in touch and we will book a free introduction!
Where do I go from here?
You can send Dan Smith a message through Sherpa and they will usually get back to you within 24 hours. You'll receive an SMS and email notification when they do so.
How do the introductions work?
Sherpa gives you the opportunity to meet our tutors in a free 20 minute introduction, which takes place through the Sherpa classroom.
How do lessons work?
All lessons take place through Sherpa's online, industry-leading classroom. This is a combination of a collaborative, real time whiteboard and a video call, like Zoom.
