Education has been my passion for many years. I have been fortunate to work in a wide variety of environments and different education systems, each with its own unique philosophy. This wide breadth of experience has allowed me to develop my own skills and approaches designed to get the very best out of individuals. I consider myself to be a naturally approachable person and will never criticise a student for not knowing something. This is a vital characteristic for one-to-one tuition in that it allows me to very quickly develop a safe environment with openness and trust at the centre. This is combined with a high level of subject knowledge and experience as an examiner which allows me to identify a student’s strengths and weaknesses and provide targeted support in a positive way.
I am very proud of my achievements in mainstream education, and the decision to leave to pursue private tuition was not taken lightly. One of my aspirations is to help as many young people as I can and this objective is pursued via my blog and, when I can, I make contributions to the Chemistry study help page on The student room. From this year, I will also be holding a series of webinars for A Level Chemistry students preparing for their final exams, allowing students to access high quality private tuition in their own homes for a very reasonable price.
I have also been a Sixth Form Head of Year for five years and have helped many students with successful UCAS applications for subjects such as Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Engineering, Physics and (yes, you’ve guessed it) Chemistry. If you have any questions about the application process then I’m more than happy to help.
My full-time occupation allows me to share my passion for all things Chemistry with secondary school students. I have founded this business and website so that I can use my experience and expertise to help even more people from anywhere in the UK and potentially beyond.
