My educational philosophy.

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 to facilitate a safe environment with openness and trust at its centre.  This is combined with extensive 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.

As a Sixth Form Head of Year for five years, I 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, I’m more than happy to help.  I am very proud of my achievements in mainstream education.  The decision to leave to become a private tutor was not taken lightly.  A key aspiration is to help as many young people as I can.  This objective is pursued via my blog and, when I can, through contributions to the Chemistry study help page on The Student Room.  I will soon be holding a series of webinars for A Level Chemistry students preparing for their final exams, allowing the students to access high quality private tuition in their own homes for a very reasonable price. 

I’m keen to share my passion for all things Chemistry with secondary school students. I have founded this business so that I can use my experience and expertise to extend my reach and help more people anywhere in the UK, and beyond.  For more information on my recent work, visit
