Why Study Chemistry?

Chemistry deals with the nature of reactions and the rules that govern them. Chemistry lies at the interface between Biology and Physics and has found use in applications to both disciplines. For the budding scientist or engineer, a solid foundation in chemistry is important whether in quantum mechanics, synthetic protein construction, or understanding how drugs interact with the body. Thus, chemistry attempts to answer many of the questions that students will have already asked of the world around them.

Chemistry Tutors

Our chemistry tutors have all studied chemistry at university level. They are adept at explaining concepts visually and mathematically. As chemistry becomes more complicated, developing an approach to problem solving through drawings and well-formulated equations is key to a student's success. Our tutors provide supplementary practice problems and teaching in order to solidify understanding.

Chemistry Tutoring

We can help students to master the theory as well as the problem-solving aspects of chemistry at all levels. Whether for homework help or exam preparation, we can tailor a programme to suit any student. We provide teaching in exam prepration for GCSEs, A levels, SAT IIs, Advanced Placement examinations, and the IB.

SAT II [Chemistry] | Dr Katherine Wiles

"Katherine was fantastic at knowing what parts of the Chemistry syllabus I hadn’t covered. My score improved from a 650 to a 790!" ... See Dr Katherine Wiles's tutoring profile.

GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Physics | Ilya Levantis

"I just wanted to say a big thank you to you for tutoring Nile. He achieved an A* in Chemistry, Biology and Physics. In Chemistry which was his weakest subject he achieved substantially above the A* grade boundary which I think is largely down to [Ilya's] excellent teaching!" ...

Chemistry (A-level) | Sasha Mottaghi-Taromsari

"Sasha was always polite and punctual. He quickly ascertained My daughter's preferred style of learning and asked her to explain topics to ensure she had understood them before they moved on. Sasha was able to challenge her and asked her to think things through to offer an explananation/answer to his questions." ... See Sasha Mottaghi-Taromsari's tutoring profile.

AS level chemistry | Oliver Jackson

"Oliver has been a great help for my son with his Chemistry AS-Level. We found 1 hour 30 minutes slots mostly and Oliver was flexible in making the arrangements, and always pleasant and encouraging. He prepared written notes along the way, for future revision. Oliver is very professional, yet friendly in his approach. He is able to identify students' strengths, weaknesses and learning style swiftly, to advise and implement the most appropriate mode of teaching that is best tailored to the individual student. He didn't mind repeating topics a few times until my son grasped the concept. He was organized and was always prepared for each session (focusing on exam technique if required). I would strongly recommend Oliver to anyone studying Chemistry without hesitation, as my son got an A in his AS level exam!" ... See Oliver Jackson's tutoring profile.

IB Chemistry HL | Marta de Andres Crespo

"Marta went through the syllabus, point by point to ensure everything had been covered. She would explain concepts to me and then ask me questions about those concepts to make sure I had understood everything that had been said. Marta would then choose the adequate questions from papers covering that topic so that I learned how to apply the knowledge to exams at the same time as learning the material. On a personal note, Marta was a pleasure to be taught by. She emphasized that no question was a dumb question so I always felt comfortable to ask her anything and to ask her to repeat explanations. She is friendly, honest, very knowledgeable in the areas she teaches, professional and always has her lessons meticulously planned. I couldn’t have appreciated her teaching more and highly recommend her as a tutor. Berfin Barlas " ... See Marta de Andres Crespo's tutoring profile.

I have always been dedicated to success. In 2015, I graduated from the University of Cambridge with first-class honours in Natural Sciences, and was awarded a number of prestigious prizes for my performance. I then went on to study Neuroscience at the University of Oxford, and was awarded a Distinction for my MSc. More recently, I have moved to London to study law, and will begin my training to be a solicitor in 2018.

During my law studies, I am hoping to fill my free time with tutoring, a pursuit that I really enjoy. Over the past few years I have spent hundreds of hours tutoring, and have loved seeing my pupils become more confident and learn to enjoy their studies. I have also taken part in pro bono tutoring, helping to give less privileged students the same opportunities as those who are more fortunate, and acting as a mentor through their school careers.

I grew up in Devon and went to a local Grammar School, where I first started tutoring whilst studying for my A-levels. I went on to study Mathematics at Trinity College, Cambridge, graduating in 2013 with an MA (1st-class) and MMATH (Merit). I was offered a place at Warwick University to study for my PhD, but ended up changing fields. I am now studying Medicine on an accelerated graduate entry program at Barts and the London School of Medicine, graduating in 2018.

Although I've ended my own career in Maths for now I have never lost my passion for the subject, and enjoy continuing this through tutoring. I've worked with students of all abilities, with the bulk of my experience tutoring Maths and Physics at A-level and GCSE standard. I also tutor Biology and Chemistry, drawing on the past two years I have spent studying Medicine. Studying Medicine has enhanced my tutoring ability, as we spend a considerable amount of time developing our communication skills.
