Information about Lewis

Professional maths and science tutor, and Head of Chemistry (as well as the Oxbridge Application Mentor) at a prestigious online school.

Cambridge graduate with a BA(Cams) in Natural Sciences. Specializing in Chemistry, I have tutored A-level and GCSE Chemistry throughout all of my undergrad and am extremely familiar with the OCR, Edexcel, and AQA specifications. Additionally I have taught Chemistry catch-up courses for students in pre-Med `foundation` years.

A large part of my tuition is what I call "question-craft". We will talk through past papers and mark schemes, and you`ll learn how to predict a "bucket markscheme" given the wording of a question.

Based on progress, we will either go beyond the specification to understand the picky nature of the markschemes (I`m looking at you, reaction conditions!!) or; we will work up from basic first principles to arrive at conclusions which are presumed in class (I`m looking at you, kinetics!!).

Availability: Monday to Thursday 10 am to 6 pm. Sundays from 5 pm until late.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: Head of Chemistry & Oxbridge Liason for a prestigious online private school

Additional one year experience working for an exclusive tuition company overseas, homeschooling several exam year students in sciences and maths

Trained laboratory demonstrator, running undergraduate level practical sessions on several aspects of A-Level Chemistry

Thousands of hours of 1:1 and online tuition in all major UK A-Level Chemistry specifications

Graduated with a BA(cams) Natural Sciences from Cambridge University

A Level Chemistry (A*) Mathematics (A*) and Biology (A)

GCSE- 9 A*-A

DBS Check: Yes

Lewis is a great tutor and is capable of breaking down hard chemistry topics, making them easier to understand . I always look forward to being in his classes and he is optimistic and offering useful tips throughout the lessons!

Tutors Response :

I really appreciate this, Rav. Thank you for such a positive review. I am so happy that we started tuition together in AS, as it means I have the pleasure of seeing your chemistry develop throughout the whole course of study. An added benefit of this is that we can ensure we develop good habits now to secure the top grades you deserve! I am following your journey to studying medicine with great interest and have every confidence you will make an excellent doctor given your cool-headed approach to new problems.

Lewis is a highly professional tutor. With outstanding subject knowledge and resources to match, my son, who is studying A Level Chemistry, looks forward to his lessons. As a parent, I have total peace of mind that my son will do well. Thank you.

Tutors Response :

I am so very grateful for this wonderfully encouraging feedback. The truth is that Yuvi is a fantastic student and I truly look forward to our lessons together. As he is such an intelligent individual, we can really explore the finer details of the A level Chemistry specification. I have every confidence he is well on track for an A* in his final exams!

Lewis was an excellent tutor for my son Tom who was studying for the Cambridge Natural Sciences exam. Tom really enjoyed his lessons with him and found him to be an interesting, attentive and clear teacher who helped him to learn effectively . Tom only had good things to say and would heartily recommend him to anyone searching for a good chemistry teacher,

Tutors Response :

Thank you so much for this wonderful feedback. I have my fingers crossed for Tom’s NSAA results but I am confident he will have performed amazingly, since he is a top candidate. I really had fun in our lessons- and some of the examples we talked about have made their way into my A-level lessons at school as challenging fringe cases.

Over the one and a half years I`ve had Lewis as my chemistry tutor, he`s helped me transform my grade in chemistry from a high D/low C into an A* - my final grade for the course this summer (2022). His style of teaching is excellent; utilising an interactive online whiteboard program called `IDroo`. Initially I feared that our sessions would be like one of the online lessons that I had suffered through during lockdown, however, I quickly came to realise Lewis` exemplary capabilities in making our sessions engaging and informative - making me slightly envious of his school students! Not only does he provide an excellent standard of teaching, but Lewis gave me tips on how to cope with the actual chemistry paper, which I found to be invaluable when sitting my three papers and no doubt contributed to my final grade. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Tutors Response :

Hi Ben,

Thank you so much for the kind words. As much as I`d like to take the credit for the incredible improvement in your chemistry grade, I`d argue that your fantastic work ethic was largely to thank. You really put in the work, and I was always confident you`d grade incredibly well in your finals. I`d like to reiterate that it was my pleasure to work with you over our time together, and I wish you all the very best of luck in the next step of your journey. Have fun at university!

Lewis is an outstanding teacher, I can’t praise and thank him enough for the turnaround he has managed to achieve.

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the wonderful compliment. Laurence is a fantastic student and I don`t see his progress as a turnaround as much as unlocking his full potential- I am very excited to see him tackle the A2 year!

My daughter had Chemistry tuition with Lewis for about 4-5months leading up to her Chemistry A-Level exam. The tuition was excellent and delivered in a way that was perfect for her way of learning. Lewis communicated clearly and frequently and understood very quickly where my daughter needed additional support in the subject. Alice developed a even greater love for the subject through the lessons and gained a better understanding of how to work through exam questions. She would highly recommend Lewis. Thank you very much Lewis!

Tutors Response :

Thank you for the kind feedback. I’m so happy to hear that Alice found our time together helpful, and I wish her all the best for her future studies!

Lewis is an excellent tutor, after two weeks my confidence and understanding with a level chemistry has improved majorly. Out of the three tutors I have tried he is by far the best, as he he explains the often complex ideas of chemistry with great clarity and always ensures I understand what is going on.

Sophie (Miss)

Lewis is a great tutor who goes through topics in great detail to make sure I understand. Often going beyond the specification to fully explain why something works the way it does.

He is always very enthusiastic and uses pictures and diagrams as a way to help me visualise concepts so that difficult topics seem easy.

He is very friendly and patient. I highly recommend him to anyone studying A-Level Chemistry.

Samay (Mr)

5/5 Rating

Lewis is highly useful and an effective teacher. He supported me during my Chemistry A level and was able to help me with difficult concepts that we came across when regularly doing past papers.

He was always willing to help at any time of day no matter what the query and tailored his teaching to accomodate the things i struggled with.

He was an great tutor!

Olympia (Miss)

5/5 Rating

Lewis has been helping me with my A-level Chemistry for quite a while now and he has proved how much of an incredible tutor he is, with me showing great improvement. He explains everything clearly and concisely and makes extremely difficult topics seem so easy. He is organised, flexible with adapting lessons to ensure my maximum progression, responds fast and is punctual. As a person he is absolutely wonderful to work with and he always gives more than he needs out of his natural care. For example, he often goes overtime to finish content we planned to get through or to answer all my questions and doesn`t ask for or expect any additional money. He does whatever he can to help. My interest for chemistry has been fuelled by him because he has made it so much easier and because he never fails to make this difficult subject enjoyable. Honestly, I have to say, he is better than my current school teachers and I think probably the best teacher I`ve ever had. I would highly recommend Lewis to anyone who is looking for a good tutor.
