Personal Description:

I have been teaching chemistry since the mid 1970's but have a wide life experience in other fields, and a particular interest in social, environmental and health issues, and believe that chemistry is a springboard for tackling many environmental and medical problems. It is certainly a cornerstone of many fundamental academic subjects.
Over the years I have compiled two comprehensive course books in the subject, the first of which covers all levels up to and including AS Level, and the second goes from A Level to first year undergraduate level, and these are designed to be constantly upgraded and disseminated online.
I pride myself on the ability to get difficult concepts across to people, regardless of learning or language difficulties.

Tutoring Experience:

Initially, I taught O Level and A Level Chemistry in a small independant college for 7 years, where I taught small groups of students, aswell as engaging in private tuition. Since then I have worked as a private tutor, mainly with individuals, but sometimes with pairs or small groups when possible. I have also helped a number of undergraduates with their initial studies at degree level.
I have taught many overseas students whose levels of english comprehension did not start off too high, but showed remarkable improvement over a year through the emphasis on technical English.

Tutoring Approach:

I have taught the subject as a correspondence course via normal mail in the past, but I prefer to teach online via e mail and video conferencing. I have done much remedial tutoring where students select the subjects they are having difficulty with, but sometimes it is more economic and efficient to take on the full courses which ensure a secure grounding in the subject.
The Foundational course breaks down into 16 units, each of which covers about 2 weeks of schoolwork, but may be covered in 2-3 hours of private tuition. Each unit is assessed at the end of a session, and this gives an accurate prediction of the final grade that may be achieved. The Advanced course comprises 15 units each of which may require 3-4 hours of tuition. Regardless of requirements of tutees, there is no 'winging-it' with my approach as there are comprehensive course texts for all subjects that are required.
I have stated that my hourly fees are £30, but ultimately all rates are negotiable, and will reduce my rates for on line work.
