Masters in Chemistry and PhD in Geology along with working knowledge of Environmental Science

My first meeting with students is about his needs for the subject. A problem can be solved with more than one method. I encourage students to suggest the possible solutions and then explain why the particular approach is the best to address the issue.
I am always open to teach the subject either chapter wise or by the random selection of topics depending on the requirement of student.

I teach chemistry, other sciences, electrochemistry, chemical engineering, industrial chemistry, food chemistry. For the following level(s): primary school, early high school, year 10, year 11-12, TAFE, adult education, undergraduate, diploma/certificate, postgraduate, phd, early childhood education.
I give lessons in person, at my home or the student's home.
I give lessons by Webcam.
I logged in, this month.

Fahmida's Experience

Through education and job responsibilities, I am able to explain complex concepts of chemistry, Geology and Environmental Science in an effective and understandable manner with the help of examples and illustrations. I have been tutoring VCE and university students for the last nine years and deliver my best. I am punctual and understand the need of students with variable stage of competency.
