My style of coaching is pretty much hands-on ensuring that basic concepts are fully understood before doing plenty of practice using past papers and appropriate mark schemes. This is of course done taking into account of the students needs and focusing on the areas they may find challenging. In essence, my coaching is tailor made to suit the indivual's needs and thereby enhancing their potentials to achieve the best grades posible.
I hold a B.SC(Hons) degree in Chemistry, a degree in Maths and a Masters Degree in Organic Chemistry. I have worked as a Senior Research Chemist for a major pharmaceutical company for more than 30 years before retiring in 2009. I have been tutoring for many years and since my retirement, I am doing it full time.
I teach the following subjects:
Lower Secondary and GCSE: Maths and all sciences (physics, chemistry and biology).
AS/A level: Biology and Chemistry.
Degree and post graduate level including Ph.D: Organic Chemistry.
I have taught more than 150 students so far and more than half of them A level students. On average about 30% have been successful in achieving A grades and about 40 % B grades. Nearly 70 reviews in various tutoring websites averaging 4.8 out of 5 grading.
My fee for;
Lower secondary: £20 per hour
GCSE: £25 per hour
AS/A: £30 per hour
Degree/Postgrad: £35 per hour

Hope you and your family are well and you are all enjoying India! I tried to call you yesterday and my mum reminded me that you must still be in India.
I achieved A AA! I got the A overall in Chemistry that I wanted. I am now accepted into St George`s University of London and will be started from 23rd September.
A HUGE thank you for all your help over the past year in guiding me with my Chemistry A Level and I hope to see you on your return from India.
