Information About Christoph - Market Harborough tutor - (4 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Christoph:
I am a professional tutor. I began tutoring during my chemistry study, which I finished with a Master’s of Science in Chemistry (first class degree) and a PhD in Biochemistry (first class degree). I have successfully tutored over eighty A-level students in twelve years and have helped graduate and undergraduate students at university. One of my pupils was a medicine student, who said after my lesson: “I did not know chemistry is so easy“.
I am familiar with the special requirements of the GAMSAT exam and have expert knowledge in biochemistry, microbiology and molecular biology.
As a fifty one year old German citizen, I have lived in England for thirteen years. Tutoring is my main profession since five years.
Twelve years of experience as a Chemistry Tutor enable me to help students to accelerate their understanding of Chemistry and to archive their full potential. Based on a thorough assessment a tutoring plan is developed to fill in gaps and to build up a solid foundation of knowledge.
I have successfully tutored students for their A-level, university and GAMSAT exams and I am happy to provide references. I have been with a well known tutor **Contact Detail Removed** for several years and I am fully CRB checked.
I have worked for 18 years in high profile labs in scientific research all over the world including Tübingen (Germany), Hamburg (Germany), Paris (France), Atlanta (USA), Vancouver (Canada), Cambridge (UK) and Leicester (UK).
During this time I have taught undergraduate university students and have supervised Masters and PhD students. My scientific expertise includes Biochemistry, Microbiology, Molecular biology, Protein chemistry, Chemical Analytic and Genetic Engineering.
“Thank you so much for your help this year. My understanding has improved immensely and my confidence has also greatly benefited. I can now enjoy chemistry without the confusion and stress, even the exams have become enjoyable!”
“You are a really good teacher and explain things very well.” Rakhi Bharadia
“I like the way you teach. You do not spoon fed, but help me to find the solution on my own.” Joe F.
“I can’t thank you enough for the tuition you gave to me - it was invaluable.” Lydia Dewis
“You have helped me a lot when it was really needed.” Suhrud Banhatti.
“I wanted to thank you for your help and let you know that I got into my
first choice university” Amandeep Kang.
“I wouldn't have been able to get the A* without your help.” Sanjeev Braich
“I got my GAMSAT results the other day and scored an average of 63 (which is in the top 15% of the country)!! Thanks so much for your help” Roshan Sing Rupra
Whenever I get a new client I begin with a thorough assessment: What kind of person is he or she, what basic knowledge is present and what are the main problem areas? Then a tutoring plan is suggested to reach the goal in a reasonable time frame.
My tutoring lessons are individually tailored to the needs of the student and designed to be entertaining but also challenging. The interview style of the session keeps the tutee focused and engaged. I incorporate examples of daily life and draw comparisons with situations from sports and hobbies. In my last assignment, we even did some small chemistry experiments (no worries parents - only harmless ones - the kitchen did not blow up!).
I ensure my students are well prepared for exams by practising past papers and applying official marking schemes. Revision techniques are improved by using revision plans and flashcards for memorization. I am familiar with the four main exam boards (AQA, Edexcel, OCR A and B) and have successfully published my revision notes. Homework of around 30 min is given between sessions to practise and deepen new knowledge.
I give my best to make the teaching interesting and enjoyable, which motivates him or her to learn. I understand that at the beginning there might be resentment towards the subject. However there has to be a basic willingness to learn. If I do not feel the openness at least to try, I reserve myself the right to decline the assignment.
Nevertheless I have a lot of patience and enthusiasm, which let me usually get along very well with my students. I hope at the end of my tuition I can quote you saying "I did not know chemistry is so easy“.
