Dr Carl $50-60/hr

Chemistry - Durham University

I am a qualified chemistry teacher with a Master's, Doctorate and teaching qualification from three Russell group universities. I am also an examiner for GCSE, A Level and IB Diploma so can offer advice and strategies to improve exam technique.

With over 15 years’ experience, I have helped hundreds of students gain more confidence and achieve exam success. Exam results from summer 2019:

• 88% of students achieved top grades
• IB chemistry (Higher Level) – two students achieved level 7, two students achieved level 6
• A Level chemistry – three students achieved A*, four students achieved A, two students achieved B (several of these were predicted C/D!)
• GCSE/IGCSE – three students achieved level 9, two students achieved level 8

My recent students have gone on to study at the Royal Veterinary College, Cambridge University, Oxford University, Manchester University, Edinburgh University, Imperial College (London), Kings College (London), Durham University, Queen Mary (London), Newcastle University, Leeds University, Bristol University and University College (London).

One of the most experienced and successful online tutors, I have delivered over 5,000 hours' online tuition to students in 22 countries! As a full-time professional chemistry tutor, I am 100% committed to my students' success and guarantee a reliable and professional service.

Dr Carl's last completed IB Chemistry job with Tyra-Ashley: 1-2 hrs/week - I am taking IB Chemistry at Higher Level. I am a medical applicant and therefore have grade requirements for this subject in the 6-7/7 area. I am aiming for a level 7/7.

I struggle with some of the standard level concepts:
- Stoichiometry (Chapter 1)
- Chemical Bonding (Chapter 4)
- Redox (Chapter 9)
- Measurement and Data Processing (Chapter 10)

In our school the higher level chemistry classes are extremely limited (1 hour in a 2 week cycle). Therefore I am struggling with all of the higher level concepts:

- Atomic structure (at higher level; chapter 12)
- The periodic table: transition elements (at higher level; chapter 13)
- Chemical bonding and structure (at higher level; chapter 14)
- Energetics and thermochemistry (at higher level; chapter 15)
- Chemical kinetics (at higher level; chapter 16)
- Equilibrium (at higher level; chapter 17)
- Acids & Bases (at higher level; chapter 18)
- Redox (at higher level; chapter 19)
- Organic Chemistry (at higher level; chapter 20)
- Measurement and Analysis (at higher level; chapter 21)

Dr Carl's last review in IB Chemistry from Sandra: Very helpful

Fraser $50-60/hr

Biochemistry - University of Manchester

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 IB Chemistry job with RAND TAYSEER: Over 2 hrs/week - Hello. I'm in grade 11 taking IB SL chemistry, I'm struggling with some of the basic concepts in chemistry, as I didn't take that much of chem back in high school. My finals is after two weeks and my goal is to be well-prepared for it. The topics we're having are atomic structure & periodicity & periodic trends & ionic and covalent bonding.

Eleanor $52/hr

Veterinary medicine / Biological Sciences - The Royal Veterinary College / University of Oxford

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 IB Chemistry job with Carrie-Anne: Intensive - I would like to hire a tutor to help with my son's IB higher level chemistry. He has just got back disappointing end of year results (achieved a 5 after getting 7s all term). We are worried because he needs to up his grade to a 6 by October otherwise his teacher won't give him the predicted grade he needs to apply for dentistry. He would also like someone to proof-read his extended essay (due Nov).

We are on vacation until end-August so looking to start then, intensive lessons to begin then, continuing with 1-2 lessons per week.

Also have a daughter about to go into year 11 needing IGCSE chemistry and biology tutoring, if one tutor could help with both my children it would be perfect!

Florence $40-50/hr

Chemistry - University of Oxford

Experience.
Amongst other students and balancing degree work, I have recently home-schooled a student through her GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics exams. I taught the courses over 1 year instead of 2, and taking her from a predicted B in double award to A/B/B in separate sciences. Most tutoring was over Skype, so I'm familiar with how to keep attention over video and check students understanding without being in the room. I've been working with Spires for almost a year now and I'm really enjoying the platform.

Frank $50-60/hr

Chemistry - Queen University Belfast

I recently retired after 40 years teaching chemistry.

I was Head of Chemistry for 35 years and in Charge of Science for 22 years.

I won the 2016 Royal Society of Chemistry Education Award.

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.

William $50-60/hr

Biological Sciences - University of Oxford

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.
