Leatherhead Tutor

I am a qualified full time chemistry teacher who enjoys teaching and working with young people! I have taught a number of students from FirstTutors and without exception they have all made significant progress and made great strides in their knowledge and understanding of chemistry. It is always pleasing to see my tutees gain confidence in their own ability and to share in their journey as they improve their test/exam results.

Tutoring Experience

I have twenty years experience of teaching in private schools and for six years I was Head of Chemistry in one of the top schools in the country. I have also written a number of revision guides/workbooks (at both GCSE and A-Level) for Collins/Letts. In addition, I am an examiner and question setter for an examination board.

Tutoring Approach

I am calm, patient and have a number of proven techniques and strategies to enable students to 'get chemistry' and to optimise performance in exams. I enjoy teaching (which is why I choose to tutor!) and will work hard to ensure you are able to do your best.

I strongly believe that if you enjoy lessons then you are less likely to find it difficult so enjoyment is important to me. I offer the first session at a discounted rate reimbursing you for the fee that you pay FirstTutors for my details, with no further commitment from you so that you can 'try before you buy'. No-one has ever not returned!

Chemistry is a very difficult subject to master but if you have a firm grasp of the foundations of the subject then you really can make significant progress in a short period of time. We will work together to ensure that you fully understand the core ideas and from this you will build success and realise your potential.
