Information about Tom
Hi I`m Tom, looking to tutor students in Chemistry up to University level and Maths up to GCSE level. I recently graduated from Keele University with a masters degree in Chemistry, whilst studying I was also the president of the Chemical Sciences society for two years. Currently I work as a Process Development Chemist at a large company in Royston.
My approach to tutoring varies depending on the student`s needs and learning style. My aim is to cover the basic principles of a concept, ensuring the student knows the fundamentals before we look at example problems and talk through the best way to tackle the questions.
If a student gets stuck with a problem I like to talk through it with them to identify the problem area, then attempt to address this knowledge gap so that they don`t have the same issue in the future.
Willing to travel: 15 miles
Experience: Whilst at university I acted as a mentor for first year chemistry students, helping them with their studies, as well as their transition to university. I also mentored foreign exchange students from America and Asia, helping them adapt to life in the UK.
Over the last year I have tutored six students on a weekly basis:
- 5 chemistry A-level students covering OCR and AQA
- 1 GCSE maths AQA student
2:1 Masters Degree in Chemistry from Keele University
3 B`s at A-level in Chemistry, Maths and Physics from Hills Road Sixth Form College
2 A*`s, 4 A`s and 4 B`s at GCSE including an A* in statistics, A in maths, and an A* in chemistry.

Feedback For Tom (2)
So lucky to have found Tom. My son finds his approach easier to understand than his school teachers.
Tom is an excellent tutor. He is always on time and extremely well prepared. He has a lovely calm manner which my teenage son responds very well to. His chemistry tutoring is really helping my son make sense of a very difficult "A" level subject. I feel very lucky that we found Tom.
