Mr Dan Mercea

Contact Dan

I am a highly experienced chemist with a passion for the subject and great communication skills. I am driven, professional, and like to help and encourage others. I am currently exploring transitioning from research into teaching.
Note: I will be available starting 11th October.

Tutoring experience

I received an MChem in Chemistry (First Class Honours) from the University of Oxford, and a PhD from Imperial College London. I worked in research for two years for an Oxfordshire-based company. I have experience at communicating complex information to various audiences, which I believe will be very useful in tutoring. During my PhD, I carried out demonstrating in the teaching labs and marked reports. I have even presented for the RSC Chemistry Communicators' Challenge 2018.

Approach to tutoring

I like to understand first what thoughts, struggles, and questions a person has relating to a topic, before trying to offer advice and solutions. It engages dialogue and helps people develop the confidence in solving their own problems. I am therefore open to coming up with a plan that suits your needs, and working to implement it.
