Chemistry Tutor Lincoln/ Lincolnshire/ Online

Methodology

Hi, my name is Jim Baker. I have been teaching chemistry very successfully for over 48 years. The comments in my guestbooks at : (concealed information) and (concealed information) speak for themselves.

Best Wishes

Jim

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

Chemistry

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Diploma in Education - The University of Sheffield - 1970
BSc Special Hons Chemistry - The University of Sheffield - 1969

- How much do you charge?

I charge £50 an hour (includes free e-help between sessions).

- Where do you teach?

I now teach online only. This gives far greater flexibility, avoids delays and frustration due to traffic problems and allows me to share any documents both on my PC and in the cloud.

- When are you available?

I am available most days apart from Thursdays. I am available most times of the day.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach GSCE, AS and A2 chemistry.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare my students for GCSE, AS and A2 chemistry.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I use Google Hangouts to tutor online. I find Google Hangouts coupled with 'Whiteboard Notepad' particularly effective as the whiteboards can be easily saved and shared with tutees. If for any reason there is a technical problem with the internet, the fee will be pro rata for the time online. Payment is made into my bank account or PayPal account within one day of the lesson.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

The comments in my guestbook 'say it all'.

Jim, just a quick post to say how much we really appreciated your time, patience and help with our daughter. She did fantastically well in her Chemistry A Level (B) considering she got a D in her AS. She's now off to uni. There is no doubt that her success in the end is largely down to you. Thanks again and best wishes. Andrew and Caroline Gresham.

Despite my short time with Jim as a tutor, in just three classes he was able to enlighten me helping me to cover complex concepts which were not explained to me in detail or in a precise manner in my school.
I want to personally thank you for the enthusiasm and constant dedication through the weeks we worked together and I would definitely recommend you.

You are a professional, no need to say anything else.

Take Care and Best Wishes

Being taught by Jim through flipped learning on Skype has been invaluable to my progress through A-level Chemistry. He thoroughly explains everything clearly and replies to any queries you may have very quickly, at any time. Couldn't recommend enough!
