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?
