I have tutored for over 4 years (for 7 students). I have a 2:1 Chemistry degree from the University of Nottingham and I am starting teaching training in September 2019. I am a polite, sociable and enthusiastic person.
I have tutored all sciences (GCSE + A level Chem), maths (all levels) and primary maths, english, non-verbal and verbal reasoning for 11+ examinations.
I have a 2:1 degree in Chemistry, and i studied A-level Maths, Chemistry and Physics at St Olave`s Grammar School (South London).
I sat my GCSEs at JAGS (London) gaining 11 A* and A grades in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths, English Language, English Literature, Geography, History, Music, Latin and French, as well as an A in Additional Freestanding Maths Qualification.
Through tutoring and undertaking these exams myself, i am aware of what teachers and examiners are looking for in students answers. I alter my teaching style to provide the best help in building a greater understanding in the subject for your child.
I understand that many topics seem daunting to begin with and my aim is to build the confidence of your child and to provide as much support and understanding as possible so that they achieve results to the best of their ability.
At the moment I offer the subjects stated but if you also require any additional subjects that I have taken up to GCSE level then please don`t hesitate to contact me.
Please don`t hesitate to contact me at any time, I will reply as soon as possible.
