About me

I am a third year Chemistry undergraduate at Durham University looking to tutor Chemistry A-level students or Maths and Chemistry at GCSE. I achieved A* grades in both Chemistry and Mathematics at A-level and want to help others attain the best they possibly can.

 

I have tutored for two years with my tutor as well as during A level and so know many of the common pitfalls in understanding which people have. I am told by tutees that my explanations are always in depth and easy to understand. What experience do I have to be a good tutor? I have been tutoring Chemistry for two years both with private tutees and through the schools programme and so have experience of explaining and teaching commonly challenging concepts such as chromatography and reaction kinetics, in a way you’ll understand.

 

Through tutoring A-level and Cambridge Pre-U qualifications I am experienced at explaining and teaching high level concepts and am always prepared to explain concepts in further detail if I feel it will aid understanding.

About my sessions

From the basics I have always found that the best way of understanding something is from the basics. This especially applies in science whereby you will constantly have to build on and apply concepts that you have learned. I will strive in my tutorials to ensure that you understand the basics of a concept as with these solid foundations it becomes much easier to grasp more complicated ideas and apply them to exam questions.

 

Having studied degree level chemistry for three years I have deep understanding of the subject and can explain concepts to you in ways which have worked for me in the past. Tailored around you I know the areas which I struggled with understanding whilst studying for my exams. My tutorials however will be tailored around you. Of course, I will explain the common pitfalls I encountered in grasping a concept but precisely which bits of the course we cover depends on what you feel you need. This may be a small area of the course or the whole syllabus. I can then plan around this to ensure you get the most value out of our time together.

 

Exam boards I studied OCR Chemistry B (Salters) at A level however if you study under another exam board please contact me, I’m sure the content will be very similar. For GCSE much of the content is universal. Please contact me with your exam board nonetheless so that I can look over the syllabus beforehand.
