Personal Description:

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 (congratulations to my FirstTutors GCSE/IGCSE tutees from 2016 - all of whom achieved an A* for 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.
