Graduating with a first class Bachelors of Science (with Hons.) degree in Chemistry six years ago from the University of Wales, I have fresh recollection of how it feels to be a student and understand the current academic and social demands placed upon students whilst studying. I am happy to tutor Key Stage Three and GCSE Sciences online.
I aim to make my sessions as fun and enjoyable as possible whilst ensuring every key concept and theme is completely understood before proceeding to another.
I place great emphasis on the learning process and engaging my students in taking control and responsibility of their own education. Reflective learning is key to ensuring that students begin to understand that, with the right skill set, no question has to go unanswered in an exam. Very often the answer is in the students mind, it's just a question of being able to access and apply a students knowledge.
I am a Chemistry graduate with a 1st class degree. I have experience of working with students in both secondary school environments and in a private tutor capacity. I currently tutor face to face in the South Devon area and online.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I tutor chemistry to A-level standard and all sciences up to GCSE level.
- Tell me about your qualifications.
I have a 1st class degree in Chemistry (graduated from the University of Wales, Bangor in 2011).
In 2017 I completed a certificate in Effective Online Tutoring with the University of Oxford.
I have A-levels in Biology, Chemistry and English.
- How much do you charge?
I charge £20 for a face to face session and £15 for an online session. I do offer a free, 30 minute 'introductory' session for new online students.
Each session is 50 minutes in length.
- Where do you teach?
I tutor at the student's home or agreed public place (i.e. a library). On special request (and an extra £5 a session for fuel costs), I will travel as far west as Plymouth and as far east as Exeter. I am based in Kingsbridge and so naturally cover local towns such as Dartmouth, Salcombe, Totnes, Modbury, Newton Abbot, Torquay, Paignton, etc. My radius for travel is approximately 20miles.
- When are you available?
I am available to tutor Monday to Friday evenings (4pm to 9pm) and weekends all day.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I will teach all ages but I will only tutor subject content at Key Stage 3 to A-level standard.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I tutor online using Skype and an online whiteboard. All materials used in the session are downloaded afterwards and emailed to the student for constant referral and revision purposes.
After university (and obligatory travelling!) I spent a year working in a busy secondary school science department as a Chemistry technician where I spent large amounts of time working one on one with students and demonstrating experiments in lessons.
My lack of formal teaching qualifications is reflected in my low introductory offer pricing. I have a full, clean, enhanced DBS certificate.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have spent time working in several secondary school science departments - both in a voluntary and professional capacity. I worked as a Chemistry technician at a busy secondary school in Dorset where I spent time working one to one with students, demonstrating in classes and designing experiments to work alongside the syllabus in use. I also co-ran a science and technology club for year 9 students.
After several years tutoring to family and friends (and contacts thereof), I am now advertising myself as a private tutor in the South Devon area and online.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a full, clean, enhanced DBS certificate.

Learning isn't a problem, other sciences lessons for all!
Taking school science lessons has never been easier: you're going to learn new skills.
