There are many great reasons to study chemistry, even if you aren't pursuing a career in the sciences. Chemistry has the benefit of being a 'central science' which means that it connects to the other sciences such as biology, physics, geology and environmental science. Knowing some of the basics of chemistry can be enough to give yourself a step head in business or with finding work abroad.

Not to mention that within chemistry, there are many different branches you could study:

  • organic, the study of carbon and it's compounds as well as the chemistry of life
  • inorganic, the study of compounds that don't contain a C-H bond, many inorganic compounds contain metal
  • analytic, the study of the chemistry of matter and the development of tools to measure it's properties
  • physical, the physics of chemistry, which often includes thermodynamics and quantum mechanics
  • biological, the study of the chemical processes that happen within living organisms

Each of these branches open up a world of different opportunities and different directions to go in, from careers such as: analytical chemist, biotechnologist, chemical engineer, nanotechnologist, pharmacologist, research scientist, healthcare scientist, forensic scientist and more!

Many of these jobs are well paying and some offer the opportunity to really help the world, by advancing medicines, helping to catch criminals, discover new compounds to improve our daily lives, helping environmental problems and more!

It is often proven helpful to take advantage of professional support. Learning chemistry with a private teacher will mean that you can benefit from a tailored learning program adapted to your needs and goals.
