Georgina has over 7 years’ teaching experience, including 6 years teaching A Level Chemistry at various sixth form colleges across the South of England. She also examines for one of the main GCE Chemistry examination boards. Georgina has a passion for science communication and enjoys peer reviewing scientific literature on a voluntary basis for the Royal Society of Chemistry. Before embarking on her teaching career, Georgina completed her doctoral studies at Sussex University, carried out postdoctoral work at the University of Oxford, and was a visiting researcher at both Sussex and Nottingham Universities. Georgina brings a wealth of experience, planning, resources and relevant expertise to help her tutees improve their confidence, study skills and exam technique as they prepare for their GCE Chemistry exams.
Georgina qualified to teach Chemistry in 2011, and holds a PGCE 11-18 QTS and Induction completed. from Canterbury Christ Church University and the General Teaching Council.

I have known Georgina (George) since she entered Sussex University as an undergraduate more than 10 years ago, and I taught her as an undergraduate. After graduating with a BSc in Chemistry with North American Studies, George started a D.Phil. degree under my supervision and was awarded her doctorate in 2008. George is an excellent communicator and enjoys teaching; as a D. Phil. student she demonstrated for me on several occasions in undergraduate workshops. Within my research group, she worked supportively with more junior D. Phil. students and was always happy to share her knowledge and data with successors. George contributed to the weekly group meetings, gave research talks at Sussex and Nottingham University, and presented her research both at national conferences and international conferences. In all cases, her presentation skills were exemplary and her work was received extremely well. After graduating from Sussex, she undertook post-doctoral research with Prof Jenny Green at Oxford before pursuing a career in teaching. In June 2013 and 2014 she attended the Chemistry Teachers Conference at Sussex University, which involved lab CPD activities and during the summer of 2013 George joined my research group, as a volunteer, to work on a computational research project entitled “Exploring double group symmetry and the spin-orbit coupled states of [UCl4].” This contributed to on-going research in my group in collaboration with an experimental research group. Since I have known George she has always been a lively, charismatic and competent individual who combines study and work with a wide range of outside activities. She is also very likeable and approachable. She is a skilled communicator and is well motivated and works hard at all that she does. Given her teaching experience and expertise in chemistry research, she has all the personal and professional attributes required to make an excellent tutor; I recommend her to you whole-heartedly.
