About the lesson

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!
