Qualified and experienced teacher, tutor and examiner.

With over 25 years of educational experience, I am able to help most students in most stages of the Chemistry and Science education.

Statistics:
25 years in the classroom
8 years teaching Chemistry at A-level in secondary schools in the UK
8 years working as an Associate Assessor at OCR, AQA and Edexcel
5 years experience in full-time Chemistry and Academic Skills tuition

A little about me:
For some reason Chemistry makes me happy. I know that`s not always the same for my students; some have their sights set on other academic goals! My job is to help students understand by breaking down complex ideas, then rebuilding with exam-style scenarios.
I have worked hard to understand how to communicate the more complex concepts and calculations more clearly to students, and how guided practise can help them with exam techniques and success.
My resources library is extensive, multi-levelled and linked to the contemporary requirements of the exam boards.

I have been working as a private tutor on a full time basis for over 5 years. Due the pandemic, I have also joined the National Tutoring Programme through Edexcel and Pearson as a tutor and advisor. In addition to Chemistry tuition, I also work as a tutor for the Dept. of Academic Development at Durham University (EAP).

What you can expect:

- Your lessons will be tailored to your specific requirements.
- The resources used are up-to-date, well designed and include clear links to your exam specification.
- You will be offered home learning (homework) if required with full marking and feedback at no additional cost
- Lessons can be recorded at your request
- Progress reports are provided at regular intervals, or on request at no extra cost
- Analytics in attainment and progress can be provided on request at no extra cost
- Full on-screen annotation and the invitation to annotate the screen yourself

- I am punctual, reliable and professional
- I am friendly and adept at building strong working relations and tutor/student trust
- I am flexible; if your needs change, your tutorials can adapt to suit them

Olivia has been a fantastic tutor - her knowledge and enthusiasm have really inspired my son and he has been enjoying Chemistry for the first time in a long while. She has given him a great amount of confidence and we are so glad we found her - I can`t recommend her highly enough.

Olivia is extremely enthusiastic about the subject, and enabled me to understand the topics I was struggling with, with ease. That’s carried over into her lessons, which are engaging and interesting, never boring. I always feel like I’ve finished the lesson with a much better grasp on the A-Level topics at hand, of which can be quite difficult to grasp. She also has an extensive knowledge in the subject which substantially helps in fully understanding concepts. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is struggling with chemistry.
