Oh, chemistry: sometimes so simple, sometimes so convoluted, it can cause much anxiety and blank stares of confusion. Whether it is organic chemistry, inorganic, analytical, composition, elements, the periodic table...the probability that you will master all aspects and subjects is low. However, in high school, chemistry and the sciences hold an important place, even more so if you are working towards getting accepted into university and aiming for high grades and eventually a BSC. In fact, chemistry is everywhere: in everyday life, your medicine, cleaning products, food, environment... Mastering at least the basics in chemistry, can suddenly become super important right?
You may not have understood how the period tables works (in your middle years), or maybe the new curriculum has concepts that are far too complicated for you. If learning the states of matter transitions in primary school is necessary (condensation, evaporation, sublimation), understanding the chemical make-up of elements, and how atoms and neutrons work, in higher education, becomes even more imperative and doesn't come automatically...
That's why taking chemistry tutoring classes in Leeds is an excellent idea: to learn how to solve chemistry equations, review end of year exams, or progress in the sciences for a future career. There are many science tutors who want to help you be successful in your goals!
In general, each tutor is a specialist (or graduate) in a specific area: acids and bases, electrochemistry, environmental chemistry, stoichiometry, thermochemistry, atomic structure, chemical bonding, biochemistry... and more!
Each student is different, and an individualized study and learning technique must be found. It is not enough to memorize a theorem or rule, or elements of the periodic table, one must also understand how it all works and fits together. This is where an experienced teacher can support you, with homework help, tutoring, intensive studying or home schooling. Let's now look at a brief overview of the opportunities available to you in Leeds, from Wakefield to Wetherby!
If it is just as enjoyable to do chemistry exercises along the banks of the Aire or in city parks such as Park Square and Golden Acre Park, it is because Leeds is a very dynamic and diverse city, with a high ratio of students (10%), many taking scientific degrees and classes.
You can also prepare for your chemistry classes by purchasing some basic books from Waterstones, one of the largest and most comprehensive bookstore in Leeds. Medicinal chemistry, environmental science, college or high school prep, workbooks with answers: you will have plenty of choice!
In another part of the city, you might visit Leeds Trinity University with its particularly active PGCE (Post-Graduate Certificate in Education) department, helping students to succeed. The school is open to many types of learners and helps each student progress successfully.
To study in a calm and peaceful environment, you might appreciate one of the beautiful parks that Leeds has to offer- totalling over 4,000 hectares of parks and green spaces (Roundhay, Yorkshire Sculpture and Golden Acre being some of the best parks!) You can find plenty of places to contemplate chemical bonding and equilibrium without being disturbed!
Finally, for a stimulating break, check out the nearby district of Bradford, which houses the National Science and Media Museum showcasing the history of TV and Film. Take your kids, your friends or meet your tutor there to discover it's wonders together. You can think like a scientist at the Wonderlab, the newest and most interactive permanent gallery, exploring light and sound through exhibits and live shows.
In Leeds, there are many top-notch institutions with professors ready to help students with their GSCE's or A Levels. Among the places of education and academies, we find Leeds City College which offers A Level courses in chemistry and other subjects. Students typically choose 3-4 A Levels for a 2 year study program.
A levels can be helpful if you’re aiming to go on to higher education or gain the qualifications you need to enter the workplace. However, you might need some refresher chemistry tutoring during your program or in preparation for it.
There is also the Swarthmore Education Center which offers courses in chemistry and biochemistry, among many others. They are known for having an encouraging approach and even offer counselling services, on-site childcare and learning support. They work with students to make learning more enjoyable and help each student to be successful in their goals.
For those who simply wish to go deeper into what they are learning at school, private associations or institutes will do the trick, because they can offer more flexible training. Indeed, if you simply want to review and prepare for final exams on an aspect of chemistry (ions and salts, chemical reactions), universities cannot offer you adapted courses, unlike institutes or associations.
In order to learn at your own pace and according to your schedule, a great idea is to opt for in-home classes or tutoring: you can determine the pace, frequency and location! This is useful if you are already taking other courses at the same time or are currently in the workforce.
Depending on the district and neighborhood, all of them easily accessible, you can contact teachers from all different backgrounds who are available to teach chemistry in Leeds. Redox, chemical laws, molecules, mole and the amount of substance, atoms, ions: they know these concepts like the back of their hand!
Admittedly, they are not as famous as the chemist Marie Curie, or other famous chemists like Alfred Nobel or John Dalton, but they have the same passion for the building blocks of matter and the secrets of the universe.
All of them have been successful in chemistry and are delighted to share their knowledge about radioactive decay, energy and entropy, and chromatography with you. They understand all the basics and know how to teach learners at all levels. They are able to approach chemistry concepts in a clear, helpful and professional way, whether you are in your first or twentieth chemistry course.
What techniques do they use to help you progress in chemistry? Chemistry exercises, games, exam revision, worksheets, hands-on experiments: everything is up for grabs! They can even take you to the Science Museum and you can spend the day having fun while exploring chemistry and science with your tutor!
After a detour visiting the Cow and Calf Rocks on Ilkley Moor, which offers a scenic view of Leeds, you will want to concentrate and progress in your chemistry classes with your certified teacher. But when taking private chemistry lessons, it is still necessary to contact the right people and to find the right 'chemistry' with your tutor!
On Superprof, by selecting the district where you live, work or even where you partake in your favorite sports activities, you can choose a chemistry teacher from among all our private teachers available. Know that there are thousands of tutors on our Superprof website, waiting for your first message to start in-home tutoring with you.
From the get-go, share with your tutor your goals and objectives: end of year exam review, explanations, homework, progressing in your current chemistry class... And tell them about your relationship with chemistry and the sciences: do you have difficulty understanding? Problems with solving equations? Or on the contrary, do you have the skills but need help with your university or prep classes?
Don't forget to discuss your budget from the beginning as well! Our teachers are paid by the hour and, although they often offer a free first class, they like to know if they will work with you over the long or short term. Having deadlines makes it possible to be better organized, and to find a financial plan adapted for everyone, starting with you.
In any case, you'll need to have your first of many meetings with your new math teacher. You could arrange to meet at a great pub, cafe, or busy park, or even in a library offering small rooms for group work.
If you prefer the calm and the comfort of your apartment, or if you like having access to all of your school supplies, our teachers will also travel to your home, and will cross Leeds to come to any neighborhood you choose, in order to teach you the fundamentals and basics of chemical calculation. You'll need to determine with them whether this travel time, or travel cost, is included in the price of your private lessons or not.
After taking private lessons with our Superprof tutors, the periodic table won't hold any mysteries for you anymore! So, what are you waiting for, reach out to a tutor today!
