Information about Dave

High quality tutoring for students who want the best, from a teacher with 12 years of experience. Now taking bookings for September 2023.

Worried about mock exams for predicted grades, or need the results to get into a top university? I`m here to help! I`ve been teaching and tutoring A-level Chemistry for 12 years, and have been Head of A-Level Chemistry for 3 years, as well as examining for AQA, Edexcel and OCR exam boards. I have an excellent track record with helping my students get onto even the most demanding courses, including medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine at the most prestigious UK universities, so if you need help just get in touch.

I do my tutoring online, using a range of platforms and tools to give my students a seamless learning experience every bit as good as if it was in person. Homework is set and checked regularly to ensure that students are learning, and to identify areas where they may need more support.

I am expert at ensuring my students are enjoying the sessions and making sure they have a thorough understanding of all topics, as well as with how to apply their knowledge to all possible types of exam questions to achieve the best grade possible.

Very happy with the tutoring provided by Dave, who has been tutoring my daughter in A level Chemistry over the past 6 months. My daughter wants to study Chemistry at university and had some gaps in knowledge. She found Dave knowledgeable and was able to teach/explain any topic she needed support with. She also found him easy to talk to and felt that Dave`s lessons helped alot. Dave was also reliable and prompt in replying to any messages. Thank you Dave.

Dave is a fantastic tutor. He helped me immensely, getting my A-level grade from a U to a B. He is amazing at explaining things and uses some great teaching techniques. His chemistry jokes make the lessons very enjoyable too! I definitely recommend you book a lesson.

Dave is an excellent chemistry tutor! My grade has gone up from a low B to a high A/A*. The lessons are engaging, concise and perfectly related to the specification. He explains things really well in different ways if i still dont understand and I can go to him with any questions I have. I really recommend him if you need a chemistry tutor.

Dave is an incredible tutor; he is extremely good at explaining every part of the course and always is prepared for any topic or question I ask him. Lessons with him are always enjoyable, with his clear explanations and sense of humour - and both my confidence and my grades have improved significantly since my lessons began with him! I would highly recommend Dave as a tutor.

Dave is a fantastic tutor - he manages to cover complicated concepts in a short amount of time, in a very easy to understand, personable way. I`ve never been as confident in Chemistry as I am now, and I couldn`t recommend him more!

Chirita (Mr)

My son is quite pleased with Dave because he explains the content well and in a less convoluted way. My son currently has teachers that teach insufficiently at school but Dave is making chemistry more manageable for my son. I recommend Dave to anybody who is searching for a chemistry tutor.

Dave has helped me with my resits for A level chemistry and prepared me to get an A* in such a short amount of time. Having taught chemistry at A level, he knew how to link what taught me to the exam and specifically what the examiners are looking for. Learning these neat tricks from Dave improved my confidence in topics I previously did not even cover in school. Under any other tutor, I may have felt the pressure of covering many topics in such a short time. But between the small-talk-banter and simplifying concepts it felt enjoyable to smash through the content, and made it feel like no big deal. P.S he knows he’s good at explaining things ;)
