I am an Oxford graduate with a Double First Class Masters in Chemistry (Hons). I have eight years of tutoring experience and have have tutored all levels and ages with a particular emphasis on the Sciences and Mathematics at A Level and GCSE. I teach in schools and sixth form colleges, as well as on a private basis. I have extensive experience tutoring for the 7+, 11+, 13+, Common Entrance and London Independent School Entrance Exams, as well as for Oxbridge applications. To date, I have a 100% pass rate with all my students. I also have a First Class Masters from the Royal College of Music and teach the flute and piano.
I am happy to teach, at short notice, specific areas of the A level Chemistry, Physics and Maths/Further Maths courses (including the applied modules: statistics, decision and mechanics).
Undergraduate Level: If you would like Chemistry tuition at undergraduate level, please discuss your needs with me through the website's messaging system. My specialism is in Theoretical Chemistry, and teaching physical/theoretical chemistry is my focus. Undergraduate Organic/Inorganic Chemistry tuition is also available, although some advance notice of topics to be covered is helpful in these cases. Examples of the main topics I teach include:
Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry for Biologists
Mathematics for Science (partial differential equations, multivariate calculus, matrix algebra, Fourier analysis etc.),
Reaction Kinetics and Molecular Dynamics,
Symmetry and Group Theory,
Over 8 years, I have tutored all levels and ages with a particular emphasis on the Sciences and Mathematics at A Level and GCSE. I teach in schools and sixth form colleges, as well as on a private basis. I have extensive experience tutoring for the 7+, 11+, 13+, Common Entrance and London Independent School Entrance Exams, as well as for Oxbridge applications.
This experience has allowed me to develop my one to one tutoring style, as has my own personal experience of tutorials at Oxford, where I was fortunate enough to be taught by many gifted academics.
When I am tutoring, I aim to provide clarity as well as bringing the subject material to life. Being flexible, and catering to the different learning styles of my students is really important to me, but within this I will still maintain a systematic and methodical approach to the learning process. For example, in a typical lesson, I will discuss some relevant theory with the student, resolving any misconceptions and identifying any areas of confusion. Then, I will work through a carefully selected problem with them, guiding them step by step through to the answer, which has the dual purpose of providing them with a worked solution that they can use for revision purposes. Finally, I will give them a few similar questions to tackle under my supervision, until they able to #k#solve the problems independently.
Most of my students are taught on a weekly basis for 60, 90 or 120 minute sessions, depending on what is required. Work between my sessions is an essential way of consolidating the material covered in my sessions. Normally, this will consist of a few exam problems that focus on further application of relevant theory. I will always prioritise quality over quantity when it comes to setting extra work so as to never get in the way of the student’s existing workload.
Self-motivation and willingness to work hard outside as well as in my sessions will ensure the success that my students aspire to.
