Asanga has been an incredible tutor for me this term. His guidance and kindness were the reason I was able to develop a better understanding of concepts in undergraduate Chemistry. Furthermore, Asanga always went above and beyond during our sessions, as he could always accommodate time before the exams. I firmly believe that Asanga’s determination and knowledge have made him a fantastic tutor and a great person. Additionally, he can adapt to any situation if you let him know the issues there could be with concepts or exam questions. If I were to recommend someone for guidance in undergraduate chemistry, it would always be him. This is because his role was the glue that restored my confidence in chemistry. Thank you, Asanga :)

Asagna was very helpful in improving my understanding of undergraduate organic and inorganic chemistry. He had indepth knowledge into the content I was learning, and was able to help me in exam preparation through his effective teaching techniques. Asagna was able to use principle concepts in the content to explain complex questions, which helped improve my understanding for future studies. Overall I would recommend Asagna for any student

Asanga is truly a wonderful tutor, I would recommend him to any chemistry student, even those studying a lower level of chemistry such as myself. His comprehensive knowledge makes him very capable of explaining topics in a really approachable way and giving great examples to aid learning. You can tell he is truly invested in his students as he responds quickly and prioritizes the learning of those he teaches. He was very patient and understanding and really made such a difference in my learning. On top of being a great teacher, he is super friendly and makes you feel comfortable. Anyone would benefit greatly from learning from Asanga, he has helped me so much. Thank you, Asanga :)

Asanga is an excellent tutor; I would recommend any student struggling with chemistry to ask him for help. He clearly and concisely explained a chemistry concept I was struggling with, in less than half an hour. He doesn't assume you know what he's talking about, and as such is able to explain a concept in a way that any (normal) student would understand. He was also exceptionally prompt in responding to my tutoring request. Overall definitely worth the tutoring fee!!

I've had a few lessons so far with Asanga for help with my inorganic subject, and couldn't recommend him enough. He's patient and works around my timetable and has been very understanding plus his affordable rate. If you're looking for a tutor who's knowledgeable and knows what they're teaching, don't hesistate to reach out to Asanga.

Asanga is an outstanding tutor and an expert chemist who has been of immense help to me during my studies of Organic Chemistry. He is so thorough and excellent at explaining concepts, not to mention kind, flexible and a great communicator. He is able to tailor the lessons exactly to your needs, whether it be to go over tricky lecture content, practical lab content or practice questions, and he maximises the output of the lessons by sending me the lesson content with his handy annotations. Despite having some gaps in my knowledge and shaky chemistry foundations, I truly feel that no question is a stupid question, and I am able to feel comfortable asking anything and this definitely facilitated my ability to learn. I am so incredibly happy with my marks, not to mention my newfound confidence in Chemistry, and couldn’t recommend Asanga more!

Asagna is a great tutor! He knew the content I was learning after a very brief chat and even though it was content he hadn't done in ages. I felt confident in his knowledge he explained everything really well and made sure I understood it. I definitely reccommend him!!

I highly recommend Asanga for any student. As someone who struggled with chemistry in the past, I was hesitant to take on the challenge of this subject again. However, Asanga was incredibly patient and knowledgeable, and helped me understand the material in a way that finally clicked for me. His teaching style is highly effective, breaking down complex concepts into understandable terms. They were always available for questions and extra help when I needed it, and I felt more confident in my abilities with each session. Thanks to Asanga, I was able to excel in my chemistry courses and achieve the grades I wanted.

I had the pleasure of working with Asanga for several months to improve my understanding of my several post grad courses in advanced inorganic, organic and physical chemistry. Asanga is an absolutely phenomenal tutor who possesses an incredible wealth of knowledge and experience in the field of chemistry. From the moment I began working with Asanga, I knew that I was in good hands and he well-knew what he's doing. He has a gift for breaking down complex concepts into easily digestible pieces, and he was always patient and supportive in answering my questions and addressing any areas of confusion during my exam times and he even helped me with the pre-labs, pos-tlabs and experiments. Not only is Asanga an expert in the subject matter, but he also has a great ability to communicate the material in a way that is engaging and accessible. He provided me with numerous practice problems and real-world examples to help solidify my understanding of the material and practiced past paper questions. Overall, I cannot recommend Asanga highly enough. He is an exceptional tutor who truly cares about the success of his students. Thanks to Asanga, I was able to achieve phenomenal grades in chemistry units and develop a deeper appreciation for the subject.
