Information About Adrian - Chelmsford tutor - (29 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Adrian:
I specialise in A-level chemistry, concentrating on helping students to grasp and apply the underlying chemical concepts. I read biochemistry at Oxford where I went on to carry out research in the immunochemistry department headed by Nobel Laureate, Prof R R Porter. More recently, I worked for the NHS as a senior commissioner of mental health services. I am also the author of a Five Star rated online A-level Chemistry text. I am currently taking students for the new academic year starting on Monday 3 September and have weekday slots available at 4pm and 5pm except on Tuesdays.
I am an experienced Chemistry tutor and former Head of Chemistry for one of the UK’s leading tutorial agencies, based in Oxford. Most of my Oxford students were re-sit students who needed higher grades. My average student improved by two and a half grades e.g. from a D to an A or a B.
Having specialised in re-sits I developed an understanding of the sources of misunderstanding which prevent students from reaching their full potential. My approach is to ‘take sides’ with the student helping them to see how they might have been confused by the way in which scientific subjects are often presented.

I would recommend Adrian to anyone, and can not thank him enough for the time he spent with my son.
Thank you very much Adrian.
Thank you for your concerted efforts with Alice over the A2 year. I am certain that your discussions with Alice relating to having a deeper understanding of the subject was invaluable in assisting her to achieve an A*.
Update 16th August: Following a spell under Adrians guidance, Simon's grades improved from an average of D in AS levels and 1 A level paper to a B in his final A level exam. He's now of to Reading Uni to study maths. Thaks again Adrian, a brilliant tutor and lovely chap.
After only two months there has been a significant increase to her grades and more importantly she now has much more confidence in her ability to succeed in her resits.
