Personal Message
I am an experienced Chemistry teacher and exam marker for A-level Chemistry.
Students often find parts of the subject difficult and I help to sort out individual problems and to improve their confidence.
Which subject(s) do you teach?
I teach AS, A2 and IB Chemistry.
Tell me about your qualifications.
BSc(Hons) Biochemistry;
What kind of experience do you have?
I am an experienced Chemistry teacher and A-level Chemistry exam marker. I am retired and most of my teaching was in Essex, where I was Head of Department in two leading schools.
I was a very successful private tutor in Essex before I retired and moved to Suffolk. I am familiar with and have taught all A-level Chemistry syllabuses. Recent tutoring has included the OCR (both Modular and Salters), AQA, EDEXCEL and IB syllabuses.
How much do you charge?
I charge £30 per hour.
Where do you teach?
I live close to Sudbury in Suffolk. Nearby towns include Colchester, Ipswich, Bury St Edmunds, Hadleigh and Halstead, which are within easy travelling distance as I prefer to teach at home.
When are you available?
I am available most days, some evenings and some weekends including the school holidays.
Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach ages 16 - 18: AS, A2 and IB Chemistry.
Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I have a CRB certificate but since retiring it has not been kept up to date.
Tell me about some of your current students.
The majority of my students come to see me because they find Chemistry difficult. I am delighted that, once their problems with the subject have been sorted, many have chosen to study the subject at university. Others have achieved the grade they need for alternative university courses including Medicine and Veterinary Science. I've taught many students over the years and I've always enjoyed a good relationship with them.
Do you have a personal message for students?
Students come to me because they are finding parts of the subject difficult. It is my aim to sort out individual problems and to give the student confidence in their ability. My experience as an exam marker means that I can help the student to acquire the techniques required to answer A-level papers. Part of the this exam preparation involves answering questions from as many past papers as possible.
