I am a private A-level Chemistry tutor based in Crowthorne, close to Wokingham in Berkshire. I have a Masters degree in Chemistry from Oxford University and have been tutoring local students since 2010. I teach students of all ability levels – I am just as proud of a student who works really hard and achieves their C as I am of a student who gets the A required to get into medicine.
How would you describe your teaching style?
I have a friendly and informal teaching style - I believe in empowering the student to take responsibility of their work, so I will encourage them to ask me for extra homework, rather than instruct them to do it.
What qualifications do you have?
I have a Masters degree in Chemistry from Oxford University.
Tell us about your experience...
I have been tutoring local students since 2010. I have tutored in excess of one hundred students. I am a Specialist Marker for one of the leading examination boards, marking A-level Chemistry papers and this has given me a great insight into what exactly the examiners are looking for and how the students should best present their work.
What locations do you tutor in?
I tutor in a designated teaching room at my home in Crowthorne, where I live with my husband who also has a DBS certificate, and our two young sons. If you have pet allergies, please note that I have cats.
What is your personal message to students?
I am returning to work in September following my maternity leave. I will only be working eight hours a week so if you are interested in my services please do get in touch as soon as possible.
