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.

I have over 4 years experience in tutoring Chemistry, Biology, Physics and Mathematics GCSE and A-Level.
During my 2nd and 3rd year of university I was an academic mentor for 1st year Chemistry undergraduates in a scheme run by the university.
I’ve tutored students of all levels from foundation GCSE Mathematics, to A* A-Level applicants and I tailor a specific plan for each student according to ability and desired grade.
