Information about Nick

I am an experienced Chemistry teacher, with over 16 years of Chemistry teaching experience. I am also a senior examiner for a large exam board.

I am a friendly and supportive tutor I feel that students work at their best when positively encouraged. I am patient and passionate in ensuring all student achieve their maximum potential.

As an examiner, I also have insight into the examination process and experience with how students perform on certain types of questions. I will utilise this in tuition sessions and be able to offer focused support with examination techniques and how best to succeed in the examinations. I have also participated in training in how to write exam questions, this also allows me to write exam style questions for students I tutor.

I am a great believer that all students can achieve their potential with the right guidance and support. It’s about hard work - but working effectively - and that is my aim; to ensure students feel supported and prepared to achieve the highest possible grade.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have taught Chemistry for many years to GCSE and A Level. I am currently an examiner for two large exam boards which gives me a breadth of experience of the necesary exam standards across different exam boards.
I have taught and tutored all major exam boards at some stage in my career, so will be able to tutor accross all of these.
I have experience with making revision resources and exam style questions, which have proved effective, and these will be provided as part of the tuition service.
Previous students I have tutored, have all achieved a B grade or above at A Level.

Nick has been an absolutely fantastic tutor, I struggled a lot with Chemistry in AS however with his help I was able to understand and start to love Chemistry again! He explains everything so clearly (and uses funny ways of remembering content that has stuck with me) and even if I don`t understand he doesn`t give up and make sure I understand the content even if it means going a little over lesson time. He has a plethora of exam questions which is perfect for doing well in Chemistry. Thank you for all your help

Nick was incredibly helpful with explaining the Chemistry A-level course; he provides lots of online resources to supplement learning and is always willing to help between sessions or rearrange if needed. We have focused on areas that were not clear from school or where I needed practice for my exams and am predicted A*. I have thoroughly enjoyed having him as a tutor and would definitely recommend. - Callum D

Wet have not had Nick for long before we started to see a marked improvement in test results. Nick is an easy going professional teacher who knows his subject well. He is a very understanding and patient tutor and has worked to improve my daughters confidence in her subject by providing her critical revision resources, working around schedule changes, being thorough, providing both guidance and enough work to consolidate learning and prepare her for exams. I would highly recommended Nick.

Nick is an outstanding Chemistry tutor. He is very professional and knowledgeable, and makes difficult topics easy to understand by using memorable analogies. My daughter`s understanding of the subject has improved vastly in the only the first few lessons. He goes through examination questions thoroughly, and is extremely encouraging. He has a very calm approach and makes excellent use of the latest technology, so that online lessons are engaging and interactive. We would highly recommend him. Thank you so much Nick.

Nick has been invaluable in building the confidence of my daughter for A level chemistry. He explains concepts well and is committed to helping in any way he can with her studies. He is passionate about his subject and sensitive to the needs of his learners. His experience as an examiner ensures effective focus on assessed topics. I would highly recommend him as a tutor and believe if the exam season had not been cancelled (due to the coronavirus), her grades would have been much improved.
