Information about Julia

I am an A-level chemistry exam marker and have been a GCSE physics exam marker therefore teach robust exam technique and give my students the tools required to succeed.

I am a qualified secondary science teacher and tutor. I tutor A-level chemistry, GCSE chemistry, physics and biology. I have taught and tutored A-level chemistry OCR-A, AQA, Edexcel and OCR Salters boards and AQA, OCR 21st century and Edexcel GSCE sciences.

Having successfully tutored many pupils I have experience of a diverse range of needs: A/B grade students needing some additional help to achieve A*, D/E grade students who struggle with content knowledge and understanding, students who have missed work and need help to catch-up and those with specialist educational needs that benefit from 1-2-1 help to overcome their challenges.

Availability: I am a full time tutor so teach every day but Saturdays.

After School

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: I have a PhD in Colour Chemistry with seven years industry experience working as a fabric and garment technologist with Marks and Spencer. I am a qualified teacher of all sciences to GCSE level and chemistry to A-level with two years classroom teaching experience. I am in my sixth year of being a full time tutor and five years as an exam marker.

My broad experience gives my teaching style a focus on real life when teaching science concepts which improves understanding and develops a genuine interest in the subject studied. I make careful consideration of pupils needs to achieve exam success in a relaxed but purposeful atmosphere so that pupils enjoy learning.

My daughter was very struggled with her Chemistry in year 13. I found Julia from the website,and we had learnt with her for few months.Julia is a very professional tutor. She explain the question clearly, patiently. She helped my daughter to go through a very difficult time, before the A level exam. With her help, my daughter received an Uni offer that is her 1st choice and she is very enjoyable with her university study.

Tutors Response :

I am so happy she got her 1st choice Uni and is enjoying it, that is fantastic news. Well done.
Thank you for feedback, delighted I was able to help.

Good response from Dr Julia. Hopefully starting next week.

Tutors Response :

Hi Dominic,

Now that Idorenyin has been tutored by me would you be able to change the rating of three stars which you gave me purely based on arranging a lesson rather than my tutoring abilities. Thank you.

So pleased to have found Julia! She has been tutoring my daughter in gcse chemistry and physics following disappointing mock results and has made such a difference already despite only having had a handful of sessions. My daughter finds Julia explains the content really well and she always comes out happy and full of confidence and disappointed it was over so quick! Julia must be doing something very right! I wouldn’t hesitate in highly recommending her!

Tutors Response :

Thank you and so lovely to hear.

Julia, has been providing my daughter with tuition in biology, physics and chemistry. Julia is very patient and knows her subject content extremely well. She uses past examination papers and breaks down the content of the subject area, so that my daughter is able to understand this and expand her knowledge. My daughter`s positive results in her mock exams, reflect that the tuition she is receiving is benefiting her immensely. I would have no hesitation in recommending Julia.

Tutors Response :

Thanks Shelah, its a pleasure.

Roger (Mr)

My daughter was really lacking in confidence prior to her AS level chemistry exam and was becoming increasingly stressed. We contacted Julia two weeks before the exam and she was able to fit in a total of 4 hours of tuition prior to the exam. In this time she was able to really help my daughter understand fully some the areas that she was struggling to grasp, boost her confidence and realise that she actually had a good overall understanding of chemistry. My daughter went into the exam really relaxed, and came out confident that she had secured a good grade. Thanks Julia for your help at short notice, it was truly invaluable. So good that my son will be starting tuition with Julia from September. Roger

Tutors Response :

Thanks Roger, I`m delighted that I was able to help.

Julia has been teaching my son 2nd year A Level Chemistry for the last few months. She has an excellent attitude, is well planned and has had a very positive impact on his performance and she is very focussed on success in the A Level this summer. Highly recommended.

My son has now had Physics GCSE Tuition with Julia since November.
Julia is very committed and helpful to assure that my son achieves the best possible results. She has provided additional homework for him and help on other school tasks. Last week we had very positive feedback from his Physics teacher and one of his assessment (P1) had a result of an A. So very pleased.

My son has only had two lessons so far, but very happy with Julia.
