Personal Description:

I am a PhD Chemist with over 20 years experience of 1:1 tuition in A-Level Chemistry. I visit you in your home.

I am particularly familiar with the current AQA and OCR specifications for A-level Chemistry.

I visit the student in their own homes, initially assessing the students needs and preferred leaning style and then supporting the student throughout the course. This is done using a large database of training and assessment materials accumulated over the years and used to target the support where it is most needed.

I currently support students in both the state and private sectors in the Lancashire and Greater Manchester areas.

Please feel free to contact me without obligation for more detailed information about how I can offer support.

Tutoring Experience:

Tutor part-time at local colleges (A-level Chemistry).
Career spent in the pharmaceutical industry, much of which was spent in training others in key skills.
Over 20 years of 1:1 private tutoring experience.
I offer on-line tuition using Skype.

Tutoring Approach:

Tuned to the specific needs and learning style of each student. Focused on meeting each student’s specific needs.

I come to visit you in your home and during the first session review previous performance (exam results and known gaps in previous learning). I will then generally go through a previous exam paper with you looking at the depth of your understanding on each topic. I'll make notes and at the next session bring material in support of those weaker areas followed by tests to confirm that your understanding has improved. We will generally follow the work you are doing at college/school with back up exercises and discussion. We will review your performances at mock exams and in term tests, again looking for gaps to close. We will review the specification at the close of each topic and prior to significant tests.
As we approach the final exams we will look at exam technique, how to maximise your score by best utilising your time and ensuring that the correct fullest answer is given to the question asked.
All of this, the pace, depth and specific approach is dependent on your individual needs.
Please feel free to ask me for more details.
