Information about Philip
Many people find chemistry hard- and it can be! At GCSE it can be quite abstract- with some tricky maths involved, and the step-up to A-level is a big jump from GCSE. But it does not have to feel like it`s impossible!Everyone learns at a different rate and nearly everyone needs a helping hand at some point along the way.
I am head of chemistry in a mixed comprehensive in Epsom. I know what`s required for you to achieve and surpass your target grades. I really enjoy tutoring and giving help where it`s needed.
Availability: I tutor mainly at weekends but can offer some tutoring during the week. If you are interested in tutoring during the week please contact me with the time/day you were thinking of and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have been teaching several years and am Head of Chemistry in my school. I teach GCSE and AS/A-level and have taught at KS3. Before I became a teacher I spent several years as a Research Chemist in both industry and university. I do not offer the first lesson as free, but prefer to do a little "meet and greet" with no cost- this way you can decide if you would like me to tutor your children going forward, and give a me a better idea of the help they need.

Feedback For Philip (3)
Phil is an excellent tutor and has really helped my son who is studying IB chemistry higher level (equivalent to A level). He is friendly, flexible and extremely knowledgeable. He took the time to really understand my sons needs and what was required of him. Phil puts across complex ideas in an accessible way, is not judgemental and genuinely cares about his pupils progress and situation. This has improved my sons confidence and level of knowledge no end. He worked my son hard, but he needed it! I just wish that I had found Phil earlier.
Philip has been teaching my son for about 2 months now and it has already resulted in marked improvement in my son`s chemistry results as well as his confidence in the subject. Philip quickly built a good rapport with my son which has been very helpful in getting off to a good start from the beginning. Philip is reliable and punctual for the lessons and provides regular feedback about the progress. I strongly recommend him to other parents.
Very knowledgeable tutor and personable chap.
