Personal Description:

I am Head of Chemistry at my school and have over 26 years teaching and tutoring experience gaining some excellent results in the process.
I am 48 years of age and married with two sons. I have a Degree in Chemistry from Loughborough University. I enjoy watching sport and travelling.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught Chemistry at a large Leicestershire 14-18 School for over 26 years. I have been Head of Chemistry at this school for 20 years. I teach AQA GCSE Chemistry and AQA A-Level Chemistry. I have also taught Nuffield A-Level Chemistry. I have tutored AQA, EDEXCEL, OCR and OCR(Salters) A-Level Chemistry and AQA and OCR GCSE Chemistry. I have tutored students outside of school for 23 years with much success.
Many of my A-level students have achieved 100% in A-level Chemistry modules and I have tutored many GCSE students who have achieved 100% in all their GCSE modules for GCSE Chemistry.
I am also Principal Examiner for IGCSE Chemistry Cambridge International Examinations. I have marked both Foundation and Higher IGCSE Chemistry papers. I have been an Examiner for Singapore A-level Chemistry set in conjunction with Cambridge International Examinations for many years now. Both these roles have helped me to recognise the difficulties that students have with both GCSE and A-level examination questions and the way to answer them successfully. I use this knowledge to the students advantage in my lessons.
I also tutor online using Skype which works really well. I have had many students who have gone on to study medicine and other medical degrees.
I also write multiple choice GCSE Chemistry questions for an exam board.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach is variable depending on the ability of the student and what they are struggling on at the time. However I believe that the practicing of past paper questions is vital for examination success. It is the attention to detail which counts in an examination and I make sure all of my students know everything in the syllabus and have practiced lots of different styles of examination question.
I also tutor online using Skype usually texting or emailing students examination practice questions which works really well. At the moment I am tutoring quite a few students on skype. These are students who live too far away to travel to me or cannot travel - this has been very successful as another approach to tutoring without the travelling. Please get in touch with me if you are interested in this approach. It is a very successful way of tutoring. If you want to try Skype tutoring the first 30 minute lesson is free.
