Alan

Tutor: Alan Reay

Alan has a Masters degree and PhD in Chemistry from the University of York. His PhD research focused on the development of nanoparticle palladium catalysts and their use in the modification of biomolecules. Following his PhD he worked as a post-doctoral researcher in York, developing low-cost automated reaction platforms, before moving to Goettingen in Germany to develop new ruthenium catalysts for the design of new organic reaction pathways.
 
Alan subsequently completed a PGCE at King’s College, London, and he now works as a Chemistry teacher at a secondary school in London. He has worked as a private GCSE and A-Level tutor for 6 years, and focuses his teaching on building students’ confidence through an open, dialogic teaching style
