Chemistry A-level Easter Revision Classes

Tutor: Dr Beata Klejevskaja

Beata Klejevskaja obtained the B.Sc. degree in Applied Chemistry and MSc. degree in Chemistry at Kaunas University of Technology, Lithuania in 2005. She then moved to London where she obtained the Qualified Teacher Status and worked for three years a secondary school teacher and private tutor. In 2009 she returned to full-time studies, completed the MRes degree in Bioimaging Sciences and then defended her PhD thesis at Imperial College London, in 2015. Her research project was focused on G-quadruplex DNA structures, aiming to understand their biological role and also potential targeting with small molecule ligands.

Currently she works as a private tutor teaching A-level Chemistry, GCSE Sciences and Maths and in her spare time continues part-time studies of Genomic Data Science.

Tutor: Dr Austin Booth

Austin obtained a 2:1 MChem Chemistry degree from Nottingham Trent University in 2000, and went on to work as a pharmaceutical chemist for SmithKline Beecham (now GlaxoSmithKline) and AstraZeneca. Following this he worked for the Health & Safety Laboratory developing sensor technology for the detection of small airborne molecules. Austin then trained as a teacher, obtaining Qualified Teacher Status and taught for two years as a secondary school teacher and private tutor. In 2009 he returned to full-time studies and completed a PhD in Organic and Biological Chemistry at the University of Nottingham. His research project was focused on designing novel small molecules that could be used as tools to further understand the human enzymes that control genes that are involved in certain cancers. Upon completion of his PhD Austin returned to teaching and private tutoring.

Currently he works as a part-time teacher, as a private Chemistry and Maths tutor and has recently founded an educational technology company that is developing new tools that increase the amount of feedback students receive.
