Information about Andrew
I have a good sense of humor which I think is is essential for studying A level Chemistry as you will be faced with lots of challenges and you need to be able to relax to get the best out of yourself.
I pride myself on being able to explain things in a simple way and have lots of daft tricks to help you understand things.
I want you to understand chemistry rather than trying to remember facts as its much more difficult to go wrong if you understand it, as the answer becomes obvious.
Until August 2017 I was Head of Science and Chemistry at Whitley Bay High School. I was there for 16 years, its a great school and a wonderful science department. I am now a freelance consultant as and I am helping improve science teaching in school across the North East. I am the Newcastle University PGCE Chemistry subject tutor helping train the next generation of teachers.
Before teaching I was an industrial scientist for 8 years in the North East and North West. I have 3 patents for my inventions.
I have 12 years of A level marking experience for AQA but I am happy to teach any specification.
After each session I will send you some questions to have a go at before the next session. The most successful students do these.
Availability: Contact for details. Pretty full now but will probably be able to fit in help as required rather than regular slots each week now, no harm in asking :-)
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: KS3 to KS5 Science/Chemistry. Full time for 18 years. Head of Chemistry for 10 years looking after 100+ A level chemistry students. Always more than 50% A*-B grades at A level and have been as high as 66% so lots of exam success.

Friendly, approachable, easily put 16 yr old nervous girl at ease. Highly qualified.
Andrew is a great tutor & my daughter finds the sessions helpful & enjoyable.
Andy has given my daughter her confidence back following a difficult start to A level chemistry. He is very thorough and patient in his tuition and we would thoroughly recommend him to others.
