Daniel likes to gauge his students' level of understanding and then tailor his teaching to meet their individual needs.
Daniel received his B.Sc in Medicinal and Biological Chemistry from The University of Edinburgh with year abroad experience at The University of Hong Kong.
With 2 years of teaching experience in both the UK and Hong Kong, Daniel has taught the following:
- Chemistry (The University of Edinburgh, Craigroyston Community High School, and a tutoring center in Hong Kong)
- Biology (The University of Edinburgh and Craigroyston Community High School)
- Academic Skills: Oral Presentation, Essay Writing and Critical Thinking
After graduating, Daniel worked as a research assistant chemist in Hong Kong Baptist University, developing porphyrin based molecules for applications in photocatalysis.

Daniel’s experience and background make him a good teacher for the type of student that is looking for a fun and inspirational learning experience, but also wishes to understand their subject rather than simply recite and regurgitate facts.
