Information about Phillipa
I have successfully taught GCSE and A Level Chemistry for over 24 years since graduating from Southampton University.
My teaching career has allowed me to teach in both the state and independent sector and most recently at an Independent girl`s boarding school in Winchester Hampshire.
I have in depth and up to date knowledge of the current GCSE and A-level syllabuss and can teach any part of organic, inorganic or physical chemistry, I can also help with exam technique in general.
I have tutored from home for many years and love it, most students improve by 2 or 3 grades, however an A.A grade is not guaranteed.
Below is a reference written by Emma Luckett of Luckett`s travel in Fareham.
"I worked with Pippa for both my AS and A2 years. She is an enthusiastic teacher and I enjoyed going to her house for the tutoring sessions. She has all the equipment needed to help any student, including a whiteboard which was my favourite to use! Through having Pippa as a tutor I improved from a D grade to an A. This A was achieved by gaining A`s in all my module exams, of which, for one, Pippa helped me go from a C grade to an A grade. I have already recommended her to friends and I would definitely encourage anyone to contact her for any help they need in chemistry!"
I love 1:1 tutoring as I believe it builds confidence as well as academic knowledge and understanding, and from these stem success. Chemistry is essential for the study of medicine and it is often the 1 subject students friend most challenging as not only is the content challenging, but the application of that content in examinations conditions requires great skill. All skills necessary to become a great independent learner at university.
Now more than ever with the global pandemic students are expected to self teach. I am now available for online tutoring, especially for those overseas.
Availability: I now have some availability at the weekends, please contact me to discuss.
I have a COVID-secure room which as been deep cleaned and I will discuss with you the use of visors and face masks and hand sanitiser.
Willing to travel: 10 miles
Experience: 25 years teaching Chemistry from year 7 to A level. Of those 23 years, 10 years have been solely teaching A level to college students in Hampshire.Contact this Tutor
Feedback For Phillipa (11)
Phillipa is an excellent tutor. She is professional, well versed in the topic area, and most importantly my son thinks she is ace. I would recommend her without any hesitations at all. We feel lucky to have found her.
Pippa is a fabulous teacher both online and face to face. She established good rapport with my daughter and quickly understood what she needed and giving her the understanding and confidence to be able to make the most of her school lessons. We cannot recommend Pippa highly enough.
Philippa is a highly organised experienced tutor who knows exactly what she is doing. She is enthusiastic and accommodating, helping to plug the gaps in my daughters A Level chemistry knowledge.
Great tutor. My daughters confidence and knowledge has steadily grown since starting with Pippa.
Phillipa is an fantastic Tutor and relates very well with my daughter who needs some extra help with Chemistry A level . Phillipa is very helpful in not only accommodating the times that fit best with the tutorial sessions, but also the topic needs of my daughter .
Phillipa is very good at explaining the concepts that were passed over too quickly in class. She has a dedicated chemistry-themed teaching space, which makes it easier to get down to dealing with chemistry problems.
Pippa was very encouraging, helpful and intuitive and certainly engaged our son in his Chemistry studies again. Thank you!
Lovely positive,helpful and encouraging tutorial. Have only had one session so far but planning more when on study leave.
