I have worked as a science tutor for the past two years and have loved every minute. During my PhD and subsequent time in academia I taught a range of levels and am expert in teaching Biology, Chemistry and Physics from GCSE level up to University level. At higher levels of education I can teach my specialist subjects including Biochemistry, Structural Biology and Molecular Biology.
With enthusiasm, careful planning and knowledge you can improve a students results and enjoyment of the subject, Tutoring is such a rewarding business to be involved in and what makes me a good tutor is that I teach out of love for the subject.
Fraser's last completed GCSE Chemistry job with Linda: 1-2 hrs/week - Understands curriculum content but cannot retain and therefore reproduce information in exams. Really need help. Would like someone to find the right approach to impart knowledge and help with revision techniques. A good sense of humour (and patience) is always helpful. Board is AQA, GCSE level.
I have been a private tutor for over 6 years and hold Qualified Teacher Status with experience teaching in schools in Suffolk and Devon. I was graded 'Outstanding' for my Teacher Training and also have experience working in industrial and research laboratories.
I am experienced in tutoring and teaching GCSE Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics tuition and A level Biology and Chemistry. I really like to break-down the difficult topics and train you how to give examiners what they want in your answers. I have worked with a wide range of students of all ages and abilities and the wonderful thing about tutoring is I can adapt it exactly to your specific needs. Having also worked as an exam assessor I know exactly the standard and requirements required to gain the marks!
I LOVE my subject and love discussion in order to further understanding. I think part of my success as a teacher is my enthusiasm and need to have fun. I try to remind my students exactly how exciting science actually is outside of textbooks.
Louisa's last completed GCSE Chemistry job with Sid: 1-2 hrs/week - Support with GCSE science including chemistry
Louisa's last review in GCSE Chemistry from Sid: AQA GCSE Triple Science Revision awesome
I have been tutoring online and 1-1 for 3 years now. I offer a range of styles in my teaching that allows the student to get involved with the lesson. This may include: labeling diagrams, creating a flow chart, completing a graph, correcting mistakes in a method e.t.c.
I have recently become an online tutor full time. This is giving me more time to make outstanding lessons for my 1-1 students. I can spend more time making sure that each student is getting the best education possible and be able to achieve grades they could not manage in a school environment.
Closer to exams, I show students how to answer exam questions. I am an examiner at AQA so I understand what the examiners are looking for and can help students with exam techniques.

I am a highly experienced Chemistry teacher with over a decade of teaching experience in both the state and independent sectors, across the full Secondary age range. As a recent Head of Chemistry, you can be confident that I understand the rigours of the subject and have a wealth of resources to share with you. I am an expert teacher with a PGCE and a Masters in Science Education from the University of Cambridge. I also have a PhD and MSci in Chemistry from the University of Cambridge, so you can be certain that I know my subject! I taught for six years at one of the top independent schools in the country (top of The Times league table of co-ed schools GCSE results, for the last 4 years).
I pride myself on drawing the best out of my students. My years of teaching expertise mean that I can quickly ascertain what it is you do not understand and tailor my teaching methods to support your individual needs and learning style.

I welcome inquiries from anyone who would like extra, on-going tuition, help with general revision or assignments, or preparation for exams.
I have experience with OCR, AQA and Edexcel syllabus.
Marie K's last completed GCSE Chemistry job with Kimberley: Intensive - We are looking for a GCSE tutor for our son an hour a day for the next 2 weeks.
Having worked as a tutor over the last several years I understand the structure of the main exam boards, the problems that students face and the common topic areas where students lose marks. With regards to the lessons I firstly prefer to identify the students area of difficulty then build a structured plan. In terms of exam technique I have an understanding of the core topics which appear and core terminology that examiners are looking for.Furthermore I have supported a vast range of students with different learning abilities. Having taught a wide range of students I have been successful in getting students to study medicine, supporting work experience and have provided invaluable advice on pursing healthcare careers. I can support students across any time zone.

I have an extensive website and YouTube Channel to provide post lesson support.
For many years I was a home tutor of GCE Chemistry, using CCEA, AQA, OCR and EDEXCEL
Specifications. Over the last 2 years I have added the WJEC Specification.
Upon retirement I took up a senior position with the CCEA examining team for GCE Chemistry.
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.
Thanks for you interest.
Sorry, but I do not offer trial sessions.
Frank's last completed GCSE Chemistry job with Kimberley: Intensive - We are looking for a GCSE tutor for our son an hour a day for the next 2 weeks.
I did my professional teaching course last year but had to give up teaching after qualifying for a great PhD opportunity. My favourite part of teaching was spending time with small groups and helping them realise they could do things they thought they couldn't.
I predominately taught GCSE and A-level classes In all three of the sciences. I also had to teach quite a lot on maths within the Physics A-level as well as helping out in GCSE maths classes. I really enjoyed teaching the sciences to people who were struggling as it would give rise to the "OH I get it now!" moment that most teachers crave.
Before teaching I studied at the University of Nottingham where I gained my masters in Biochemistry and Genetics. During this course I was lucky enough to study a large variety of topics as well as take part in research projects at the university which gave rise to further works. I thoroughly enjoyed my degree as well as my research which is why I am now studying for my PhD.
