Information About George - Tadworth tutor - (3 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated George:
I am currently a student at the University of Bristol studying an MSci in Chemistry.
I am passionate about the subject and keen to help others get the grades they deserve.
Previously I attended Nonsuch High School for Girls and achieved 3 A levels and 4 AS Levels including A levels in Chemistry (A*), Physics (A), Maths (A). My AS levels where Maths (A), Chemisty (A), Physics (A), Statistics (A).
My previous teaching experience has included being recruited to support students at Nonsuch in the chemistry club. A club specifically set up for eager students to learn beyond the curriculum at both GCSE and AS level. I also supported students in a Kumon centre in mathematics and English
I volunteered at a special needs school supporting students with Autism and learning difficulties.
During my gap year I was a Chemistry Technician at a local high school as well as tutoring GCSE and A level students.
All of which I found incredibly rewarding.
Chemisty is a microscopic subject and consquently students can find it hard to grasp without being able to visualise what it is they are having to lean about.
I believe in teaching by going through and showing with diagrams and visuals and putting things into everyday concepts. if you can show students what is happening as opposed to just telling them, then the understanding and retention is far greater. This also encourages the student to think outside the box and go beyond the curriculum to achieve the highest grades.
My tutoring approach will be student led, depending on the individuals requirements. Whether this be needing help to understand the concepts or how to answer the exam questions in the very specific way the examiners are seeking. Or a mixture of both.

Thank you for your feedback, I am very passionate about chemistry and so am sorry you felt this way. I like to use a lot of visuals in my teaching as I believe this helps with understanding this quite often very complex subject. Using Skype to tutor clearly doesn't work with this and I have now given up this method because of your feedback so thank you. I have also not charged you for the 2 hour session we had together. I wish you the best of luck for the future.
I can't recommend George highly enough.
