Personal Description:

I am a Chemistry A Level examiner and a teacher in a sixth form college. I have been tutoring professionally for the last six years but, in a way, I started this job as a hobby when I was in school – meeting friends after school to help them with their revision.

I have a PhD in Biochemistry (Distinction) and Postgraduate Certificate in Education (Distinction). My hobbies are varied, but I would mention football and chess.

Tutoring Experience:

I teach a wide range of students: students with special needs, students aiming for Oxbridge, students doing A2 and retaking AS, etc… tailoring my teaching to their individual needs.

I also work as a Chemistry A Level examiner, which enables me to guide students on how to maximise their performance in exams.

My classroom teaching experience includes A Level Chemistry, GCSE Chemistry and Physics, and HND in Applied Chemistry Level 4 and 5 (equivalent to first and second year of a chemistry degree).

As a private tutor, I have been helping students doing A level Chemistry (all exam boards), IGCSE Chemistry (Edexcel) and GCSE Chemistry (all boards). So far I can say that the feedback from my students has always been excellent.

During my PhD, I worked as a teacher for undergraduate practicals, and in a voluntary capacity with teenagers in a socially deprived area. All these experiences have been highly rewarding.

Tutoring Approach:

In the first lesson I show original documentation for identity, proof of qualifications and DBS (previously known as CRB) to my students and their parents.

I offer the first lesson as a free no obligation lesson, which is only charged if students decide to continue to have further lessons with me. Therefore if after the first lesson you are not fully satisfied and decide not to come back, then you would not have to pay for it.

My approach to teaching students consists of the following steps:
-To establish a good atmosphere between the student and myself.
-To identify the student’s current level and the difficulties they are experiencing in the topic we are going to start working on.
-To define the learning objectives for the session so that students have a clear idea of what they need to learn.
-To keep a continuous interaction with the student during the whole lesson though questioning and different activities in order to keep the student engaged whilst I can check if learning is taking place.
-To evaluate the session in terms of what the student has mastered and what needs further work.
-To set homework so that the student consolidates the acquisition of new concepts and skills.
