Personal Description:

I am a PhD Organic Chemist who has been tutoring for over 20 years whilst working in research, manufacturing and management in the pharmaceutical industry. I recently took early retirement and now teach part time at a local college and tutor privately. In addition to availability at evenings and weekends I also have availability during the day (other teaching commitments permitting).
I tutor out of choice and have a genuine enthusiasm for science related topics and a strong drive to see others maximise their potential.

Tutoring Experience:

Tutor part time at local colleges (A-level Chemistry and AS-level Maths).
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.
I cannot help you with your homework but I will discuss with you in general terms how to approach the questions you may have been asked and give you supporting material.
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.
