Chemistry teacher with more than three decades of teaching experience in GCSE & A-Level

Methodology

I have more than thirty years of experience in teaching Chemistry to multi-ethnic and multinational cohorts in various parts of the world. The skills and professional experience which I acquired from these positions are immense as I had to deal with students from about forty different nationalities with a wide spectrum of abilities. I am an examiner for various exam boards including Cambridge international examinations taken by A level students from more than fifty countries. The skills and experience I have gained through various roles in 16-19 age group for the past twelve years in the UK will give me a great confidence to analyse the requirement of the 1st year undergraduates and to decide what needs to be done to maximise their potential in the programme with a special emphasis on their mathematical and analytical skills of each leaner.

Background

I have 32 years of experience in teaching A-Level and GCSE students. I am also an examiner for various exam bodies such as AQA and Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). Students really appreciated my A-level Chemistry revision sessions, as I could keep everyone in the cohort fully engaged by giving them specially made resources, to suit their level of understanding. I always give the priority to developing the essential skills, by solving examination style questions, which alone can bridge the gap between their current level and the expected level.

I have also undergone trainings on the delivery of the new A-level Specification and hence I can very effectively guide students to achieve their maximum potential in Chemistry.

Rates

Transportation Fee : £10
Rate for online lessons : £20/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : £100
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : £180

Details

If they come in a group, I can offer lessons at the rate of £12.5 per hour. I found that students learn a lot better by being in a group of motivated learners as they solve woksheets through discussions and also with teacher's feedback. They improve their confidence as they take lessons in small groups (4 or 5 maximum ) and this will not only bring the price for each lesson down, but also make learning an enjoyable process.

Perfect! An absolutely fantastic teacher who explains challenging scientific concepts in a way that is easy to understand. His experience as an examiner is especially helpful when as he is able to teach me topics in depth, while ensuring that I learn in a way that is specific to my exam board. Highly recommended.

BILLEY's response

A very brilliant student who is very eager in making progress. Does a lot of independent work and she is really capable of picking up even the difficult topics once gone through.
