Information about Fiona

I am an ethusiastic teacher and a general Chemistry geek. I love the challenge of making difficult Chemical concepts accessible to students of all ability levels. My specialism is organic chemistry although I enjoy teaching all aspects of Chemistry from GCSE to A-Level.

Availability: Available immediately, week nights and possibly weekends.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I have an MChem degree in medicinal Chemistry from Newcastle university and a PGCE from Durham University. Having taught for the past 16 years, I am an experienced Chemistry teacher with excellent subject knowledge and extensive exam board experience. I have taught both AQA and OCR A-level Chemistry as well as iGCSE, trilogy and GCSE Chemistry. I have taught all ability levels and have prepared students for Oxbridge applications. Having been a head of chemistry for the past 7 years, I currently teach part-time in a local independent school. I pride myself on making Chemistry interesting and accessible to students of all abilities and aim to pass on my enthusiasm for the subject.

Great help and provided specific questions to help aid my learning

Matthew (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Fiona is always very professional yet friendly. Having only had a few lessons with her my understanding of the subject has already improved and confidence has grown.

Risa (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

She`s very organised, always asks my son before the lesson what he needs and what topic he`s doing in his school.
She`s very patient and calm, doesn`t rush things.
Always on time, and does the full hour.
Very good at explaining things and very good at exam techniques.

I contacted tutorhunt for extra chemistry tuition for my daughter. I picked Fiona from the site due to her proximity to where we live but mainly because of the information in her profile.
My daughter has bonded very well with Fiona and is enjoying her extra tuition but more importantly she feels a lot more confident with her chemistry studies.
I would wholeheartedly recommend Fiona to other parents.
