Information about Rob
Specialist in individual online tuition, primarily for GCSE and A level Chemistry, supplementing school/college lessons, particularly since schooling has been missed during the Covid-19 pandemic. I also tutor students who are retaking A level exams, as well as tutoring mature students.
I am a well-qualified, enthusiastic teacher, having taught Chemistry for 26 years in mainstream education. I have also tutored students, on an individual basis, for the past 16 years.
I believe that one-to-one tuition provides a unique opportunity for students. While some students simply need reinforcement of particular Chemistry topics, I have found that it allows many students to ask questions and discuss particular topics that can sometimes be difficult to resolve in a classroom setting, giving them the space and time to gain confidence in quiet surroundings, without the distraction of fellow pupils. Also, it is an opportunity to concentrate on in-depth analysis of topics that are sometimes not fully covered in class, but which are essential for A star students, as well as providing time for analysis of exam paper questions and improvement in exam techniques. In addition to reinforcing material which is being covered in the current academic year, I am experienced in assisting students who may not have reached their full potential in previous exams and who need help and support for re-sits. Theory and practical topics are fully covered.
I have an approachable, friendly, yet professional manner, that has helped students to succeed over many years. I have taught GCSE, A-level and Access (adult returner) courses in local schools and colleges. I am fully conversant with all current Chemistry syllabuses, including the new A level syllabus, and am CRB/DBS checked.
Now tutoring exclusively online, I have a wide range of resources available, including handouts, question sheets on specific topics, past examination papers etc., which I can share online.

Feedback For Rob (15)
Mr Rob is a very good tutor, he covers all chemistry concepts very clearly and makes sure you understand. Also he provides a lot of resources and past paper questions which is very helpful. We are very lucky!
After just a couple of lessons with Rob my sons confidence with Chemistry has come on in leaps & bounds, he looks forward to the lessons & comes away with a greater understanding every time.
My daughter was very happy with Rob`s tutoring for A-level Chemistry. He knows the material well and does a good job of explaining concepts.
Mr Rob is incredible tutor, really professional teacher. My son, for a very short period taking lessons with him became top in the class in Chemistry. We are very happy that we found such a wonderful and supportive tutor, we highly recommend his way of teaching and preparation for the exams.
Very happy with Rob`s tutoring. My daughter is finding his lessons a real help. Thank goodness we picked Rob!
Rob is a fantastic tutor - couldn`t ask for better. so glad we found him. My son now understands his Chemistry.
my daughter achieve high A at chemistry, which is higher than she expected.. really enjoyed his teaching. excellent tutor !!
Rob has been tutoring my daughter in AS Chemistry for about 6 weeks. She is home educated so there is no other teaching involved. She has come on so far already. She says Rob is great at explaining things, he has access to lots of resources and exam questions.
My daughter is really enjoying the lessons and is now much more confident in the subject.
Rob is a great tutor. He explains Chemistry concepts very clearly and has many resources that are really useful. His knowledge of A-level syllabuses is also a great help. He could even give explanations via email for questions I had thought of after our previous session.
Rob tutored my daughter for two years. She would highly recommend him. He gave her confidence and a far greater understanding of A level chemistry. He is very helpful and has a great manner. His work with her enabled her to achieve the grade that she needed to get into her first choice university.
Very good, helpful and supportive.
Hi, My daughter finds her lessons with Rob very useful. He is very well prepared for lessons and is very good at explaining chemistry concepts to her so that she understands the topics that she is finding difficult. Wish I had found him sooner.
Rob is a helpful and knowledgeable tutor who is aware of the course requirements and will adapt his teaching to meet the needs of his students
Rob is brilliant, my son has now understood the equations he needs for chemistry after one lesson, My son said `it was helpful`, praise indeed from a teenager. We will be continuing with Rob every week for help with other chemistry topics.
A great tutor. Rob is well organised and thorough in his teaching. His way of explaining things is easy to understand and he has plenty of resources so you always have more practice.
Enthusiastic, experienced and well prepared. Clarifies Chemistry so the pupil feels more confident about their own ability.
