All the chemistry tips and notes you need brought to your home!

Methodology

I tutor all age-groups in science and maths. My teaching style comprises: preparation of comprehensive as well as aesthetically pleasing notes for my students, regular practice questions to build their confidence followed by more abstract problems to further challenge them.

Background

I have been giving tuition intermittently for the last 4 years to 4 different students. My GCSE chemistry students' grades improved drastically after I introduced him to mind maps and made him notecards which he could read with ease anytime/anywhere.
