Very experienced Chemistry teacher and examiner of all levels and all abilities. Always achieve excellent results. Online and face to face tuition available.

Methodology

Revising and teaching topics. Lots of past examination questions which I critically analyse using my Examiner techniques. Teaching topics in advance so students feel happy with them as they do them in class. Teaching how to revise properly and effectively.

I am a fully qualified Chemistry teacher and I am also Head of Chemistry at my school. I have over 28 years of teaching and tutoring experience gaining some excellent results in the process. I tutor both face to face and online using Skype and BOTIM.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach Chemistry.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

My first degree is in Medicinal and Pharmaceutical Chemistry and my PGCE is Chemistry and PE both from Loughborough University.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £35 per hour for A-level and £35 per hour for GCSE Chemistry tuition. This includes all notes, resources and past papers. For online tutoring I send resources by email/text which are then completed and sent back to me. The fee also includes all marking which is done outside of the lesson time.

I use Skype for online tuition which is very successful. I tutor students from abroad using this platform. I also offer tuition by BOTIM to students who live in countries that don't have Skype. If you want to try online tutoring I offer an initial first 30 minutes for free.

- Where do you teach?

I teach from home and all my students travel to me. They travel from Leicester, Nottingham, Derby and Burton. I live in Ashby-De-La-Zouch and students travel to me from all over Leicestershire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

I offer online tuition and have tutored students from London, Manchester, Cornwall and Scotland. I am tutoring a student who is based in Switzerland and am happy to tutor students who live in Europe and the rest of the world. Indeed, I am tutoring students from Dubai, Doha and Oman at the moment. They are studying either A-level or IGCSE Chemistry. This is proving to be very successful and I fit their lessons in to take into account time differences.

I am also using BOTIM to tutor students from Dubai which is very successful.

- When are you available?

Yes All weekday evenings and weekends. I am available all school holidays as I am a full time teacher.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

All ages - GCSE, IGCSE and A-level.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

All qualifications.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I offer online tutoring by Skype which is very successful. I have achieved some excellent results through this platform including students going on to study medicine. For online tutoring I send resources by email/text which are then completed and sent back to me. I go through questions and topics easily using this platform. The fee also includes all marking which is done outside of the lesson time.

I tutor students from all over the country using Skype. I have also started tutoring students from abroad using this platform. If you want to try Skype tutoring I offer an initial first 30 minutes for free.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

It is all about confidence and having the confidence to attempt all the questions in the exam. I concentrate on exam technique as well as teaching the concepts and topics. I revise topics and also teach them in advance so you can feel confident in class having already been taught the topic.

Background

I have over 28 years of tutoring and teaching experience of all levels of Chemistry - achieving excellent results in the process. I am looking to expand my business abroad and offer Skype and BOTIM tuition.

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught Chemistry at a large Leicestershire 14-18 School for over 25 years. I have been Head of Chemistry at this school for 19 years. I teach AQA GCSE Chemistry and AQA A-Level Chemistry. I have also taught Nuffield A-Level Chemistry. I have tutored AQA, EDEXCEL, OCR and OCR(Salters) A-Level Chemistry and AQA and OCR GCSE Chemistry. I also tutor IB Chemistry and IGCSE Chemistry. I have tutored students outside of school for 23 years with much success.

I am also Principal Examiner for IGCSE Chemistry Cambridge International Examinations. I have marked both Foundation and Higher IGCSE Chemistry papers. I have been an Examiner for Singapore A-level Chemistry set in conjunction with Cambridge International Examinations for many years now. Both these roles have helped me to recognise the difficulties that students have with both GCSE and A-level examination questions and the way to answer them successfully. I use this knowledge to the students advantage in my lessons. I also write multiple choice GCSE Chemistry questions for an exam board.

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

Yes I have an up to date enhanced DBS check - done through my school.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I did my PGCE at Loughborough University and have taught at my school for 25 years both A-level and GCSE Chemistry.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I have tutored students of all abilities who have always improved. Many of my students have gone on to study medicine and other medical careers and also to study at the top universities. Many of my A-level students have achieved 100% in A-level Chemistry modules and I have tutored many GCSE students who have achieved 100% in all their GCSE modules for GCSE Chemistry.

Recently, I had an A-level resit student who improved from an E grade to an A grade in one year. I have tutored students who have gone from a C grade to an A grade in one year.

(A-Level Chemistry) Suzanne gave my son so much confidence! From a predicted Alevel B grade he actually received a strong A grade!

I can't praise Suzanne highly enough. My son loves his lessons with her and his confidence is growing as a result. I am so pleased!

Suzanne is a wonderful teacher. She is very experienced and professional. She can spot the student weaknesses and correct them. She keeps teenager students interested in chemistry and push them into working hard. My son used to have grade c in chemistry before starting with Suzanne and used to hate the subject. After his tutoring, he found chemistry easy and achieved a comfortable A* in his gcse. I strongly recommend Suzanne, in fact my second son has started tuition with Suzanne this year.

(A-Level Chemistry) Within 2 weeks my daughter has shown great improvement. Suzanne is very professional and has made the lessons clear and easy to understand. Thanks

Excellent tuition from Suzanne; she is friendly, student centred and supportive. She really knew how to bring the best out of my son and was extremely well informed about the Scottish curriculum. I would recommend her without hesitation.
Thank you Suzanne for everything you've done!

(A-Level Chemistry) Excellent, very thorough and professional. Would highly recommend.

(A-Level Chemistry) WE are really pleased with the progress Alexander has made with Suzanne, he is more confident in his approach and I'm sure he will do well in the exams. He has been taught aspects of chemistry that have never been fully explained at his school. We would not hesitate in recommending Suzanne to other students.

Pleased to tell you that my daughter is very happy and found your tuition very helpful.

Jonathan

Suzanne is an excellent chemistry tutor and we would highly recommend her. Suzanne has been tutoring our son during his second year of A-levels over the past year. Suzanne has been very supportive during the year and has always been able to answer our son's questions. From being his weakest subject, chemistry has probably become his strongest subject. His confidence in the subject has increased enormously during the year and Suzanne has been responsible for that.
