Information about Nathan
I have been teaching A level Chemistry for 5 years and tutoring it since the first year of my degree. I work in a local secondary school where I am part of the A level Chemistry teaching team at both AS and A level and have been since I started teaching at the school. Many potential tutees get in contact as they feel the step up from GCSE Chemistry is demanding - and I would agree. my job as a tutor is to provide support and clarify any misunderstandings about the course they tutees might have. Some like to focus on re-visiting content, but the vast majority of tutees like to see what types of things can be asked in an exam situation. I find that the best way to tutor is to familiarise students with the questions and how examiners can ask the same sorts of things in many different ways - so past paper revision and analysing is key to success at A level and this is the most common thing I do with students. I feel that my experience in tutoring students at this level for the past 8 years, teaching it to students for the past 5 and my experiences as a GCSE Chemistry examiner with a major awarding body and also an A level examiner with another awarding body allows me to make a significant impact when tutoring students at this level.

Feedback For Nathan (4)
Nathan has been tutoring my son Chemistry since October 2018. He is friendly, professional and has already made a great difference to my sons grade in his mock A level. Would highly recommend Nathan as a Tutor. Extremely pleased!
I cannot recommend Nathan too highly. He tutored my daughter in Chemistry in the last year of her GCE and her confidence and ability developed tremendously as well as her enjoyment of the subject. He developed an excellent rapport with her and is a natural at finding just the right way to explain difficult concepts.
Excellent friendly knows his subject and exam requirements
Excellent raport with pupil
Excellent tutor. Reliable and punctual. Relates well to my teenage daughter and explains things excellently, targeting particular problem areas. Her confidence has increased as a result. I would certainly recommend him to others requiring Chemistry tuition.
