I have over 4 years of experience in tutoring the sciences across a range of exam boards and levels, and am focused on ensuring each of my students understands how they will best reach their goals.
I am passionate about the subjects that I tutor, and am able to deliver them in innovative and engaging ways. My aim is to build up the confidence of my students in any given subject, and to help each individual to realise their potential.
Eleanor's last completed A Level Chemistry job with Tash : Occasional -
Extensive subject knowledge and awareness of tricky concepts that cause problems. Easy to talk to. Can quickly devise strategies that can be used to help make rapid progress towards your goals. Can cover any exam board for GCSE chemistry and physics. Excellent knowledge of all UK Chemistry A level boards: OCR, AQA, OCR B, WJEC (Eduqas in England), Edexcel. Overseas boards, Cambridge International and Edexcel International chemistry A level are no problem. I aim to provide regular feedback and marking advice as part of the service.

Robert's last review in A Level Chemistry from Mrs: Please could you cover paper 2 for Lottie, (rate and extent of chemical change, organic chem, chemical analysis, chemistry of atmosphere, and using resources), and organic and electrochemical cells for Ellie. Thanks Excellent
I have just retired after 40 years teaching chemistry. Head of Chemistry for the last 35 years and in Charge of Science for the last 22 years. Winner of the 2016 Royal Society of Chemistry Education Award, I have an extensive website and YouTube Channel to provide post lesson support. A home tutor of GCE Chemistry, using CCEA, AQA and EDEXCEL specifications.
I recently took up a senior position with the CCEA examining team for GCE Chemistry and as a result I am unable to tutor students for that specification.
Comfortable with teaching online using the Spires platform, I have an enormous bank of teaching and assessment resources available at the click of a mouse.
Frank's last completed A Level Chemistry job with Cristina: Intensive - Get ready for GSCE
Frank's last review in A Level Chemistry from RAHIYA: Organic Chemistry Great explaining and patient with responses
First up, I enjoy the subjects I tutor immensely and I feel this is one of the most important qualities in a good tutor. In addition, I am friendly and confident and have experience of communicating with others in a teaching environment. Coupled with my enthusiasm for the subjects, this will make for a productive and enjoyable learning environment for students. I have extensive tutoring experience, particularly at GCSE and A-levels and have been working with some students for multiple years. Beyond this, I have been asked by my school to return after my first year of university to regularly help prospective Oxbridge students with their personal statements and applications and was an advisor on interview technique.
William's last completed A Level Chemistry job with Sarah: 1-2 hrs/week - I'm struggling with chemistry and I'm doing my A level course in 5 months so I'm looking for a tutor who could help achieve an A* in this short period of time. I'm doing the CIE exam board .
William's last review in A Level Chemistry from Fleur: Really good lesson.
Relatively new to the Spires platform, I'm a qualified chemistry teacher holding a Master's, a Doctorate and with over 15 years’ professional and industry experience working in chemistry
I have established an excellent reputation for helping students gain more confidence and achieve exam success. Every summer, over 80 % of my students achieve top grades and go on to study highly-competitive degrees such as medicine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine at Oxbridge and Russell group universities.
With examining experience for GCSE, A level and International Baccalaureate Diploma chemistry, I have a wealth of tips and strategies to improve exam technique and ensure exam success.
Now a successful online tutor, over the last 4 years I have delivered nearly 4,000 hours of tuition to students in 16 different countries. As a full-time tutor, I am 100% committed to my students' success and guarantee a reliable and professional service.
I provide high-quality resources (revision notes and booklets of past paper questions) matched to each specification at no additional cost.
Dr Carl's last completed A Level Chemistry job with Christine: Intensive - My daughter resitting A level exams in Biology and Chemistry - need help.
Dr Carl's last review in A Level Chemistry from Patricia: he explain everything so clearly and its really easy to follow through what he is teaching.
I have more than four years experience in tutoring, both one to one and small groups.
I work at Kaplan International College where I teach Chemistry, maths and Statistics at Foundation level.
I have extensive experience in working with children, teenagers and adults.
I think that the role of a private tutor is to teach effectively a subject, develop self-confidence in the student and teach him/her to study in autonomy.
Eleonora's last completed A Level Chemistry job with Souzan : 1-2 hrs/week - I am looking for A* in my a level exam
Eleonora's last review in A Level Chemistry from Kaschta: . Really enjoyed the session with Eleonora. I was taught about Polymers and I got an idea of her teaching style, overall - really pleased!
I am a volunteer for a number of organisations which aim to help disadvantaged students reach university and have tutored a number of students to success in their exams so I have a lot of experience of working with young people and helping them to reach their potential. I am happy to help as a subject specific tutor for GCSE or A-Level, or help students through the sometimes daunting university application process and admissions tests.
About my tutorials:
Sessions are always student-led. I plan tutorials which reflect the student's level of understanding, giving access to notes, including suggested exam questions, which the student can add to during the tutorial, or use as a memory-aid following the tutorial.
I have received lots of positive feedback about this approach.
I can also help students through questions or tasks which they bring, and the best tutorials involve this collaborative input.
The pace of sessions is determined by the student, and I am happy to go through any topic with a number of different approaches until we find one which the student finds helpful.
Chloe's last completed A Level Chemistry job with Jamie : 1-2_HOURS - I am looking for an A grade
Chloe's last review in A Level Chemistry from maihan: Chemistry past papers Thank you so much :)
I have been a Chemistry tutor with Spires for three years, during which time I have tutored A Level students, university applicants, undergraduate and postgraduate students. I mostly work with A- Level Chemistry students - last year my best student improved from a B grade (predicted) to an A* grade (actual) in 17 lessons.
Milo's last completed A Level Chemistry job with Thomas: Over 2 hrs/week - Getting an A* and preparing for a possible interview at Cambridge in December
Did you do well at GCSE Chemistry but struggling at A Level? Not quite understanding one of your teachers? Afftected by teacher absence? Not quite achieving your target grade in tests and mocks? Need a high grade for University?
Whatever the reason I can help. I am passionate about helping students understand and enjoy A Level Chemistry and gain their required grades.
I'm a specialist online Chemistry tutor, fully qualified experienced teacher with a fully up to date enhanced DBS. I have a Masters degree in Radiochemistry, and a Post Graduate Certificate in Education.
Also a former Nuclear Waste Research Manager for the Atomic Energy Authority and a published scientist.
Please contact me with your Chemistry requirements. I look forward to hearing from you.
Paul's last completed A Level Chemistry job with Seanette: 1-2 hrs/week - I am struggling with foundations in Chemistry such as titration calculations and percentage yields.
I have been teaching KS3 Science, GCSE Chemistry and A-Level Chemistry to over 150 students since August 2017. I also run an introductory undergraduate chemistry club for those interested in pursuing chemistry to degree level, the aptly named ‘Geek Club’.
I have 200 hours of tutoring experience including over 100 hours tutoring online with Spires.
I graduated with a Masters in Chemistry from the University of Oxford, which included achieving distinction in quantum chemistry and a Masters thesis on chemical education presented at the Variety in Chemistry Education (VICE) conference. Central to my project is understanding how people learn, and identifying common misconceptions that students have prior to encountering a new topic. Developing this foundation in educational theory has undoubtedly improved the way I teach, and I do my best to continue adapting my techniques as I read new literature.
