Connect with private tutors offering GCSE, A level, and Degree level chemistry support

Chemistry is the study of matter, elements, compounds, and how they behave. It covers a lot and is a compulsory subject for primary school and secondary school students as part of the English national curriculum. It's currently taught as part of science classes for younger students and as an independent subject at secondary school, GCSE, and beyond.

If you're interested in chemistry and studying it at A Level, degree, or beyond, let's see why you should, the challenges chemistry students face, how it's taught in schools, and how a private chemistry tutor can help.

Why You Should Study Chemistry

The first reason to study chemistry is that you have to. Along with physics, biology, maths, and English, it's a compulsory subject until you finish secondary school. Essentially, if you want to do well in school, you have to do well in most subjects, especially the ones that you can't drop.

Another reason to study chemistry is that it's a fascinating subject that can lead to promising and well-paid careers. Over four-fifths of university chemistry graduates find themselves either in employment or continuing their studies. Chemistry can lead to careers in medicine, pharmacology, research, biochemistry, forensics, ecology, and teaching. Generally, there's no shortage of work for those with degrees in chemistry.

Chemistry can also teach students a lot of transferrable skills. Aside from the obvious science skills that can be used in physics, biology, and maths, students are taught to think critically, which can benefit them in subjects like English, history, and geography, too!

Challenges in Chemistry

One of the biggest problems with studying chemistry is the fact that you also have to be very good at maths. While you won't necessarily need an A Level in maths to get onto some chemistry university courses, maths skills will be expected.

Generally, chemistry is also quite a difficult subject because of all the abstract concepts it covers. With chemistry, you can't see what's going on and instead have to rely on abstraction to understand the processes and phenomena observed.

Studying Chemistry at School

As we mentioned, along with physics and biology, chemistry is a compulsory subject in English primary and secondary schools. It's either taught as part of science classes, usually to younger students, and as an independent class in secondary schools and at GCSE.

However, at GCSE, students do have the option to study for double award science. This means that they'll take fewer exams than studying physics, chemistry, and biology independently, but they'll still be awarded two GCSEs if they pass.

Students looking to study any science at A Level and university should probably take chemistry, physics, and biology as single science GCSEs, but this still isn't obligatory, especially if their exam results are very good.

Private Tuition in Chemistry

If you need help in science, chemistry, physics, biology, mathematics, or any subject for that matter, private tutoring can help. Whether you're struggling with your chemistry class or looking to get the best exam results possible and get into the best university, private tutors can offer a teaching experience that's tailored to the student.

To help students that are struggling, tutors can take the time to focus on the topics they find difficult. In their classes at school, their teacher, no matter how good they are, may have too many students and not enough resources to each every student to the best of their ability. A private tutor will work in small groups or with an individual to help them learn in the best way possible.

Rather than being held back by the pace of their classes, gifted students can spread their academic wings with a private tutor. They can focus on topics and subjects beyond the level they're being taught at school and ensure that they achieve the very best exam results at school, college, or university.

Professionals can also benefit from private tutoring. If you're looking to change careers, learn new skills, study a different area of chemistry, or brush up on something you mightn't have studied since you were at university, a tutor can help you. You can choose exactly what you want to learn from them since they don't have to teach a curriculum.

Finding a Chemistry Tutor

If you live in Leicester or Leicestershire and are looking for private tutors, you just need to search on the Superprof website. There are tutors all over the country and around the world who can help you with almost any subject at any level.

You can search by subject and location and view each tutor's profile to compare their qualifications, experience, level, and rates. You can also read reviews left by their other students to get a better idea of the tutoring service they offer.

On the Superprof website, you can get face-to-face lessons, online tuition, or group tutoring. Each comes with pros and cons so think carefully about which would work best for you and your budget.

A face-to-face tutor usually travels to their student's home and will offer a tailored learning experience. While these are usually the most expensive tutors, they're also the most cost-effective as every minute of the lesson is spent focused on the student.

If you can't find any suitable or available tutors in Leicester or around Leicestershire, you can always broaden your search to include online tutors. As long as you have a webcam and a decent internet connection, you can learn from tutors all over the world. Since they don't have to travel, they also tend to charge less.

Group tutorials are great for those on a budget. If you can some colleagues or classmates need help with chemistry, get in touch with a tutor about group lessons. As there'll be several of you paying for the lessons, they usually work out cheaper per student per hour.

Don't forget that a lot of tutors on the Superprof website offer the first lesson for free. Use these free sessions to try out a few different tutors before choosing the one that's right for you.
