I have been teaching for just over 6 years at all levels from KS3 Science to GCSE and A level Chemistry in the Cardiff area. I have had extensive experience in tutoring A level Chemistry in particular and have done this since my second year at university in 2011. I went on to obtain a first class in my chemistry degree, became a self employed A level tutor for a year and subsequently completed a PGCE in 2014 which enabled me to become a qualified full teacher. In addition, I have several years of experience at examining at GCSE and A level with different exam boards. I feel that these experiences equip me well to deliver quality chemistry tutoring tailored to students that I tutor.

How would you describe your teaching style?

Exam focussed, with particular attention to exam style rather than continual and unnecessary content focus.

What qualifications do you have?

What is your personal message to students?

Chemistry is a difficult subject to master. Most students that come to me often tell me that they understand the principles of the subject but have difficulty in applying these concepts, especially in exam questions. My tutoring style is more geared towards how to apply your class or textbook notes to answering exam questions. It's about confidence building and exam technique as opposed to retaining masses of information.
