Robert's last review in 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
Since 2015, I have been tutoring both A-Level and (I)GCSE students across multiple boards of examination. I have helped many individuals achieve their academic goals, with students showing improvements by up to 3 symbols. I began this initiative after achieving my Cambridge International Examination (CIE) A-Levels in mathematics, chemistry and physics with an A and 2 A* grades respectively, averaging 90% overall. I aspire, through tutoring, to help all of my students find enjoyment and inspiration within the fields of science and mathematics.
Robin's last completed Chemistry job with Charles: Occasional - looking for extra help to get ready for exams next year
Robin's last review in Chemistry from Charles: Maths revision brilliant did an edexcel physics specimen paper.
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.
Tom's last completed Chemistry job with rithik: 2_HOURS - I NEED CHEMISTRY HELP , I WANT AN A BUT MY TEACHER IS INEFFICIENT
Tom's last review in Chemistry from Abdal: to be discussed Was really helpful, explained things clearly. Look forward to starting with him.
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.

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.

Dr Carl's last completed Chemistry job with Elisha: 1-2 hrs/week - Exams are in 2020, hoping for at least a 6. Would like to go over the syllabus and learn everything.
Dr Carl's last review in Chemistry from Patricia: he explain everything so clearly and its really easy to follow through what he is teaching.
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 Chemistry job with Maaz: 1-2_HOURS - I am looking to get an A* in my exam.
Chloe's last review in Chemistry from maihan: Chemistry past papers Thank you so much :)
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 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 Chemistry from Fleur: Really good lesson.
The subjects that I primarily tutor are Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry. My 4 years of tutoring experience has found me tutoring students from year 8 to year 11 and providing valuable SAT preparation lessons.
I am fully aware of the GCSE/pre-GSCE subject matter and requirements. I have tutored numerous international students and their improvements stand testament to my ability to tutor various syllabuses. In addition, the 2 years of calculus, 2 years of chemistry and 1 year of physics that I completed at university, has adequately prepared me for all content appearing in different syllabuses.
Most of my client base is a result of referrals from other students, due to their improvements and belief within my tutoring capabilities. My tutoring ethos is built around a core of patience, passion and pride within my student's success. My experience has taught me valuable techniques for explaining difficult concepts in an easy to understand manner. I always recommend practicing the covered content after the lesson, and provide my own problems/questions if there aren't any available. I also provide lessons for overall test/exam preparation where I provide useful time saving tips among other things.
