Methodology

Online lessons or face to face.
I'm an Ex-Head of Science and Head of Chemistry from a top Bedfordshire Upper School. See @onlinechemistrylessons for details and testimonials.
36 years A level chemistry teaching & examining experience.
Need a top grade for university?
Struggling with the basics?
Help is here.

Chemistry specialist to: A level, GCSE, iGCSE, IB,

Some testimonials:
"He delivered the content with passion and skill, I'm now at medical school thanks largely to him."
"Mr Lock always taught chemistry in a memorable, relevant way, and it felt like we didn't just do everything for the exam. I had a great time with him as my teacher."
"He teaches in a way which makes us learn and remember. He makes us write down his hip-hop "chemical raps" in the back of our books,"
"I regularly still rap the second law of thermodynamics. Typically on a first date. Hasn't worked yet, but boy do I remember it. Thanks Dave for all your work!"
"You were an inspirational teacher, and your enthusiasm carried me all the way to my PhD! If you're half as good a tutor you'll do just fine. Good luck!"
"You were my inspiration as a PGCE student!! All the very best in your retirement!"
"He managed to get me a B grade at A level which I doubted was anywhere near possible....
He is highly knowledgeable, patient and most of all able to make science both fun and accessible. Making the concepts come alive made learning more fun but they also stuck around long enough in my grey matter for me to make the grade; far exceeding my expectations! I still remember the physical representation of entropy as he leapt from bench to floor! Immense! HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

I currently teach in an Upper School and live in the village of Sharnbrook Bedfordshire.

Arrangements for online tutoring.
What you need:
For face-to-face tuition: just yourself !
For the online tuition: a broadband internet connection with computer or laptop with Skype installed, a webcam and a quiet spot in the house.

Tutorials are usually 1 hour long and are all one-to-one. I use online resources and can also set and mark homework activities according to a student's needs.

I have developed effective methods to bring on even the least confident of students. Typically raising grade U to C, grade C to A, grade B to A*

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I am a Chemistry specialist to A level. I'm currently teaching in a Bedfordshire Upper School.

I'm an Ex-head of Science and Head of Chemistry.

Over the years I have done much one to one and small group private tuition for people who need bumping up to the highest grades for university or medicine, and for those struggling in some areas and just needing a pass. Over 35 years I have taught every conceivable syllabus both here and abroad.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes, as I am a serving UK teacher this is obligatory.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I teach A level chemistry to year 9,10,11 and 12 and 13 sixth form students. I am currently coaching individuals who need top grades, who aspire to study chemistry and medicine next year. I also have Lower sixth students who are struggling with the transition to AS level from GCSE and who need help with the basics.
