The aim of the site is to help anyone looking to get a better understanding of Chemistry and Maths fundamentals. While the topics are specifically tailored for honours courses in Leaving Certificate Chemistry and Maths, the core elements suit many different specifications.
The video tutorials are screen capture, and they have a tendency to increase in complexity quickly, so to get the most out of them, it's probably best to get a pen and paper and pause the video while taking notes as you go along.
In the Math's section, the selected leaving cert solutions are there to aid primarily with some important concepts and skills based questions on the papers.

After completing a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry at University College Dublin, I worked with the Head of the Organic Chemistry department in University College London for two years as a post-doctoral research chemist, synthesising analogues of natural products for biological evaluation in the School of Pharmacy, London.
I then moved into teaching completing a postgraduate certificate in education (PGCE) before spending 5 years teaching, iGCSE, A-level and the International Baccalaureate in two London based secondary schools, Kingston Grammar School and King's College School, Wimbledon.
I currently teach Chemistry, Maths and Science in Gonzaga College SJ,Dublin.
