Nicole S - Tutor in Vredehoek

I'm a PhD student in Chemistry at UCT and I've been tutoring chemistry from 1st- 3rd year for the past 5 years. Currently I'm tutoring CEM1019H (1st year). Tutoring makes me feel smart! Often progress is slow in research and being able to help someone understand something gives me a boost of motivation to get back at it.

    I've been tutoring first year chemistry for the past couple years - I have a good idea of of what concepts students struggle with and how to overcome these challenges. If I don't know the answer we'll research it and figure it out together- or I'll ask my Professor ;)
