A-Level Chemistry Tutor Letchworth | Chemistry Lessons Hitchin

Methodology

I have worked as a Senior Research Scientist for GSK for more than 30 years. Since my early retirement in 2009, I have been tutoring full time and have coached many GCSE and AS/A level students improving their grades by at least two levels.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach general chemistry at all levels (eg. GCSE, AS/A level) and Organic Chemistry at University level as Organic Chemistry is my specialist subject at post graduate level.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

My qualifications are:

B.Sc. (Hons) in Chemistry - First Class - University of Madurai, India.

B.Sc. in Mathematics - University of Madurai, India.

M.Sc. (Research) in Organic Chemistry - University of Manchester, UK.

- How much do you charge?

My fee:

GCSE: £20 per hour.

AS/A: £25 per hour.

University: £30 per hour


Please add £5 per hour for a home visit within 10 mile radius. Home visits are usually taken as 2hr sessions.

- Where do you teach?

I can teach at home or visit the student's home (subject to travel conditions).

I live in Letchworth in Hertfordshire.

I am willing to travel any distance provided my travel time and fuel cost are met.

- When are you available?

I am available most times subject to other bookings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach all age groups although my current students are GCSE and AS/A and degree level students.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE, AS/A and degree levels.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can do online tutoring through SKYPE which I do successfully.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

My message for students would be to get a sound understanding of the fundamentals and as a result are able to link up and see the overall picture of chemistry. Most students make the mistake of segmenting but chemistry must be understood wholly!

Secondly, I would advise students to take a little bit of time in reading and understanding the question(s) carefully before attempting to answer them and that way they can answer exactly what has been asked for!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have several years of experience in tutoring students of various levels (GCSE, AS/A) from various boards (AQA, Edexel, OCR Chem A, OCR Salters and IB). Since my retirement, this has been fulll time.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes. I have an enhanced CRB available on request.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

My current students are doing GCSE and AS/A level from OCR Chem A, OCR Salters, Edexel, AQA and IB boards. Some of my students have had their re-sits and achieved their potential grades - an improvement by two grades usually.

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.
Many thanks.

John has now had six chemistry sessions with our son. He is very knowledgeable about the requirements of the chemistry syllabus, and how best to focus our sons revision efforts, as well as helping his understanding of some difficult topics. We are very pleased with with his ongoing support.
