*NEW Tutor to SPIRES* I have been obsessed with Chemistry since my first lesson in Year 7 when I used a Bunsen burner for the first time. I am an expert in Chemistry, but I am also an expert teacher and explainer. If you would like to be taught by someone who genuinely loves Chemistry and cares about their students, then look no further.

About Me

I have 10+ years of teaching experience at an Outstanding School and Sixth Form, and I am a former Head of Chemistry and Assistant Director of Sixth Form. I have a PhD in Chemistry, an MChem in Chemistry, a PGCE in Secondary Science (Chemistry specialism), and an MA in Education. I have an outstanding teaching track record for teaching science to Years 7 – 13, but my specialism is A Level Chemistry. I am also an A Level Chemistry Examiner. I have helped many students with their UCAS applications, with a focus on STEM subjects, especially Medicine, Dentistry, and Veterinary Science.

I graduated with a first-class honours MChem in Chemistry from the University of St Andrews (the number 1 university for Chemistry in UK league tables), and also won several prizes, including a prize for the “Best Overall Chemistry Student”. I then went onto win a Salters’ Graduate Prize, which are awarded to the top 5 chemistry students in the UK. During my PhD, I won an extremely sought-after Marie Curie Fellowship to further my research. During my PGCE, I won awards for the “Best Science Trainee Teacher” and the “Best Overall Trainee Teacher” (from all subjects).

I have a friendly and approachable teaching style, and I tailor each tutorial to the individual student. For me, explanations are key to understanding the fundamentals of a topic, and I pride myself on being able to break down complicated topics and explain them clearly in a variety of ways. Practice is also vitally important, and in each lesson I model how to answer specific exam questions before giving the student an opportunity to practice. I also provide topic-specific exam questions with worked answers as homework after each lesson so that students can practice independently.

She personifies teaching excellence - thank you Emma!” – Y13 Chemistry A Level (OCR) and Y12 Chemistry A Level (AQA)

"Our son (age 16) has been having weekly tutoring sessions with Emma for 6 months in the run up to his dual science GCSEs. The difference in his understanding and knowledge across all 3 subjects has been incredible with significant improvements in his trial exam scores versus his end of year 10 results. All his science teachers have reported improvements across the board in his attainment levels. However the biggest difference we have noticed has been in his confidence in his ability to understand the subjects. Previously he didn't really have faith in his ability to succeed in the sciences however with regular one to one sessions with Emma his self-confidence has improved immeasurably resulting in a much greater belief that he can do well and as a result a much greater drive to succeed in his GCSEs.
Probably the most important thing is how much he looks forward to each session and how rewarding he finds them. Emma is always very organised and structures the sessions and topics around his needs, working around his timetable and extra curricular activities. We would highly recommend Emma to anyone looking for a science tutor. " – Edexcel IGCSE Chemistry, Physics and Biology
