Dr Gerard Hobley
(PhD, Organic Chemistry; BSc 1st Class Hons., Chemistry; PG Dip., Post Compulsory Education and Training; MRSC) is a highly skilled biological chemistry researcher with high levels of academic achievement and a number of publications. He has substantial work experience gained across a wide range of work areas. As an active Royal Society of Chemistry and American Chemical Society member and as a reviewer for Tetrahedron Letters he continues to make a valuable contribution to the scientific community. In 2013 he gained a teaching qualification from Bradford College and has since been working on an access to HE (science) course as a lecturer and at various other schools in and around NE Derbyshire and South Yorkshire. He has been delivering private tuition for A’ Level Chemistry since 2011.
