Chemistry - go beyond appearances ... understand at a deep level

So you have a goal, a treasured dream? Perhaps you'd love to work in science, tech, engineering or maths? But your chemistry is letting you down?

I'm a coach and tutor who loves to help individuals achieve their learning and life goals. I've helped my clients qualify for their chosen career paths – in dentistry, physiotherapy and chemistry. I tutor chemistry at iGCSE, IB level and A level – drawing on my background as a medical / science journalist and as an Oxford University chemist.

Chemistry is the study of electrons – and who gets to see one of those in everyday life? Perhaps that's why chemistry remains a mystery for many.

There are 11 basic ideas of chemistry you must master up to age 18 – and it's really common to get the wrong idea about one or more of these.

A big part of my job is to uncover the sources of your confusions, helping you understand clearly at a gut level – then you will naturally remember whatever you need on exam day.

My job is to turn the abstract into something you can see, hear, touch and even smell – and give you space to think out loud and explore and be curious.

Often we will start with real exam questions, and work back through the concepts … fitting them together like lego bricks… this way you will safely arrive at the correct answers. This is the kind of deep learning that stays with you for years to come and you can trust in the examination hall, no matter how nervous you feel.

So write and tell me –
1. what is your goal and why is it important to you?
2. What exam course are you doing?
3. What obstacle do you need help overcoming?

Extra information

We meet on Zoom, with support via Whatsapp / Line /Telegram/ email. Longer sessions can be arranged face-to-face in Prague.

The Royal Society of Chemistry in London says many students aged 11-18 have problems "getting" one or more of these 11 basic ideas of chemistry. So if you're confused – you're in good company! Tell me, would you like help with any of these:
1. States of matter
2. Particle theory
3. Changes of state (solid, liquid, gas)
4. Differences between elements, compounds and mixtures
5. Chemical reactions – what are they anyway?
6. Open and closed system chemistry – eg rusting, burning versus precipitation/dissolving.
7. Acids, bases and neutralisation
8. Stoichiometry
9. Chemical bonding
10. Thermodynamics
11. Chemical equilibria

About Me

Do you have a treasured dream or goal? Something that seems ambitious but secretly you know you can do it –  if you can just access the right help and tools? I'm a coach and tutor who loves to help individuals achieve their heart's desire. I've helped my clients study and work overseas, thanks to better science and English skills.
* Chemistry – I teach chemistry at iGCSE and IB level – drawing on my background as a medical / science journalist and as an Oxford University chemist.
* English – I teach advanced writing and fast-track, natural fluency – using methods proven to be 2-3x faster than the norm.
* Music/ ukulele – I teach musical fluency and destressing – through the ukulele, improvisation and songwriting.

Come to me if you...
* know what you want to achieve and are willing to learn in a new way and change how you think about things
* can be humble and trust that your perseverance will pay off – and learning is not linear - it's often 2 steps forward 1 step back. Seemingly no progress, then a big jump.
* Respect yourself and your teacher's time – but ask for flexibility if you need it.
* Are honest and will speak up if you don't understand or you need something different.
* Give generously to your goal – you are patient with yourself and will give yourself the proper time to absorb and develop.
* Clear adequate space in your diary so you can breathe and devote yourself to this goal.

Serdane
Science course (physics-chemistry-bio) for high school students.
My name is Serdane and I offer science classes to high school students who have a hard time finding a way to work that suits them. Extrovert and bubbly ... and above all, a lot of humor! Everyone learns in his own way. This is why I do not have a rigid method but adapt to the contrary to the specificities of each student. I evaluate its level, its strengths, its possible weaknesses or delays, and I develop my course accordingly. My priority: to restore confidence to the student: science is within everyone's reach when it is well explained! I believe in active teaching methods: I try to involve the student as much as possible, to make him discover what works for him, so that he can continue his career independently. Finally, I bring specific help when preparing questions or exams in a more difficult subject. My rate includes full tuition (private lessons, the ability to ask questions outside of class time, writing and correcting questions, etc.). NB: I am on vacation (without internet access) until September 9th included. Looking forward to reading you.

Private lessons in Maths Physics Chemistry and Biology
The support I give you in Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics is very practical and is based on the explanation of the courses followed by in-depth exercises on the chapters covered in class. Free to ask all questions relating to the chapter and the concepts covered, tests are available to prepare you for class assignments and exams. I am patient and tolerant so whatever your nature, we will get along perfectly. Always available to follow you and I do whatever it takes to help you enjoy chemistry, physics and math. All my students who at the beginning had difficulties in Chemistry, physics or mathematics, end up excelling in these subjects with very good marks. Roland, whom I particularly thank, was one of my students who initially had enough gaps in chemistry. But from the first lessons, he started by better understanding the concepts and even finished his baccalaureate with very good grades in physics and chemistry.

Djamel Eddine
Private lessons in physics - chemistry all levels
I am an engineer and Master 2 in automatic (Electrical Engineering), I can give classes to students of different grades from primary to university depending on the subject. my course is as follows: I expose the course (the theory) and I simplify to the maximum until I reach the understanding by using various methods according to the pupil, in general examples of the everyday life make the case to put the brain at ease and open his desire to understand, then I would go to series of exercises well chosen to sweep all the concepts of the course and implement them.

Maria
Private chemistry lessons
I have a Bachelor´s degree in Chemistry "cum laude" from Simon Bolivar University in Venezuela. I have been teaching privately at home for five years. I helped students with Chemistry for different modules and exams at school and university. I find day-life examples to make chemistry easier to understand. This subject can be more understandable with the write approach

Philippe
Physics-chemistry extras course by physicist and professor of physics
The courses are adapted to each student, his achievements, his difficulties and his objectives. They are based essentially on the practice of exercises and exam subjects, supplemented by the clarification of theoretical notions that would not have been understood. Clear explanations and effective advice allow you to acquire ease and serenity to fill gaps, better organize your work, regain self-confidence.

Julien
Private Science Lessons - Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics
Dear student, I am a chemist graduated from EPFL (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology). I have always been fascinated by science and now I hold a doctorate in solid-state physics from the University of Geneva. Science subjects can help you pass exams. I have been teaching these disciplines for many years during exercise sessions held at the University as well as in private lessons given as an independent. For this reason, you will have the possibility to ask me for explanations on any subject. It is indeed useful that you can progress on the basis of what you already know. You will of course have the choice to ask me for remedial lessons to revise or discover entire chapters. Before the first lesson starts, I will invite you to explain your situation to me freely and free of charge so that we can work effectively from the first lesson. All scientific subjects have in common a method that is called "scientific logic". Whenever the opportunity arises, I will offer you elements of this method because it is this method that will allow you to understand durably and to solve the exercises rigorously. Your studies are serious business, demand that you be taken seriously. Best regards, Julien

Math, Physics, Chemistry and other engineering courses, to understand deeply.
I am self motivated in tutoring for school courses and exams. My goal is to make students to understand scientific courses deeply. You'll learn how to solve problems with illustrations. To understand real case problems, at least one prior experienced need to widen your horizon to transform in logical definitions. If you are struggling with scientific courses , don't worry, I will do my best to assist by my eight-years in teaching experiences.
