Information about Nathan
I have been teaching A level Chemistry for 7 years and tutoring it since the first year of my degree 10 years ago. I work in a local secondary school where I am part of the A level Chemistry teaching team at both AS and A level and have been since I started teaching at the school. Many potential tutees get in contact as they feel the step up from GCSE Chemistry is demanding - and I would agree. My job as a tutor is to provide support and clarify any misunderstandings about the course they tutees might have. Some like to focus on re-visiting content, but the vast majority of tutees like to see what types of things can be asked in an exam situation. I find that the best way to tutor is to familiarise students with the questions and how examiners can ask the same sorts of things in many different ways - so past paper revision and analysing is key to success at A level and this is the most common thing I do with students. I feel that my experience in tutoring students at this level for the past 10 years, teaching it to students for the past 7 and my experiences as a GCSE Chemistry examiner with a major awarding body and also an A level examiner with another major awarding body allows me to make a significant impact when tutoring students at this level.

Nathan helped my daughter prepare for her Chemistry AS levels. Nathan was extremely helpful, polite and professional. As a Chemistry teacher, he`s got the knowledge, but also has got the skills and techniques to teach. Nathan explains everything in detail, is very organized, and has lots of patience, which made my daughter very comfortable during tuitions. He`s helped her gain confidence and understanding of the subject.
My daughter has greatly benefited from tuitions with Nathan and is looking forward to work with him again.

Nathan is a fantastic tutor, very kind easy to get on with. He helped my daughter so much, taught her work that her school never even covered. Highly recommend him to anyone.
Nathan is a brilliant chemistry tutor. He has instilled confidence in my daughter. He is very professional. He sets homework and my daughter really enjoys her tutoring sessions.
My son only had a one off session with Nathan, however he was very relaxed in his approach yet very professional. Made my son feel at ease and helped to build confidence and understanding prior to sitting AS examination.
Nathan has been a real help (A level chemistry): very well prepared, clear and positive. I would recommend him as a tutor.
