Chemistry Tutoring

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.

I am passionate about releasing the potential in every student, with a particular focus on building confidence and nurturing a love of learning. ...
I'm a final year medical student at King's College London and based in Surrey, having done my first three years and intercalated in Psychology at the University of Cambridge. I'm President of the university cycling club and have been tutoring for the last year for Wentworth Tutors. ...
I recently completed my Natural Sciences degree at Christ's College Cambridge, where for my first two years I read maths, physics, and chemistry. In my final year I received the second highest First in the university in history and philosophy of science. Before Cambridge I went to Oundle School, a private boarding school in Northamptonshire.

After a stint working at the Cabinet Office I am now a studying for my Graduate Diploma in Law. My timetable is flexible and essentially self-managed, giving me lots of time to tutor outside of my legal studies.

I started tutoring my friends and peers while at school and have now been tutoring for around 7 years. In that time I have mostly taught maths, english, physics, chemistry and history at GCSE and A level, but have recently begun more intensive tutoring for the UK's 11+ and 13+ exams. ...
I have been tutoring in the private sector since 2007. Whilst completing my studies I had experience tutoring mathematics for ages 12-16 (including GCSE). During my gap year I worked as a cover supervisor at Simon Langton Girls' Grammar school where I had experience teaching mathematics to Year 8 (12-13 years old) and to a GCSE class. I also had experience teaching Core 1 (AS mathematics model) to a group of highly able students who were taking the exam a year early. Whilst completing my degree I had further experience tutoring GCSE mathematics.

I attended Girton College at the University of Cambridge and studied on the Natural Science Tripos. She took modules in mathematics, chemistry, material science, biochemistry, psychology, neurobiology and physiology. My specialist interest was in physiology and my final year project explored the development of the human middle ear bones. I recently completed a Masters in Clinical Neuroscience at King's College London in which I achieved a distinction and was awarded the Gold Medal for achieving the highest mark in the year. I have since returned to King's to undertake their four year graduate medicine course. I took A-Levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology and Physics as well as a AS Level in Ancient Greek.

I am passionate about tutoring mathematics as believe the analytical and problem solving skills it develops are crucial for a whole range of academic disciplines or careers. In my spare time I am a keen cyclist and I race for King's College London Cycling Club of which I was also the 2015-2016 President. ...
I have been tutoring in London ever since I graduated from the University of Oxford in 2013 with an undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences. ...
