About me

I recently graduated from Durham university with a master's degree in chemistry. I have previous experience tutoring a level chemistry and am able to tutor chemistry at all levels. I also can tutor both physics and maths up to gcse level.

I consider myself an approachable person with a real passion for science. The challenge in science is always in the understanding and I feel I can work with your child to build this foundation of understanding from which high exam results can be obtained. I will tailor classes to suit each child's need to ensure the best use of everyone time.

As someone who only recently left the academic world i understand how stressful exams can be and would love to help minimise this stress for the whole family.

About my sessions

After discussion with both the students and parents about what they would like to focus on and the students aims are, I will structure lessons by a brief introduction to the subject followed by completing a prepared workshop questions with the student. The workshop questions will be tailored to the student and their aims. Going through questions together allows the student to improve their understanding while having me as the tutor see exactly where they are struggling. It also allows me to pass on useful exam technique to the student.

Questions Katherine has answered

Describe the three main types of bonding?

1) Ionic bonding - occurs between a metal an a none metal. Electrons are transferred between two atoms to form ions - atoms with either a positive or negative charge. Ionic bonding occurs because of the strong electrostatic attraction between the oppositely charged ions. The ions form a lattice, an ionic compound. Ionic compound conduct electricity when molten or dissolved, have high melting points and are soluble. E.g. NaCl2) Covalent bonding - occurs between two none metals. Electron pair sharing. The covalent bond is very strong but most covalent compounds exist as compounds made up of lots of individual molecules. The atoms within the molecules are held together by the strong covalent bonds, the molecules are held together by weak intermolecular forces. This results in them having low boiling points and being electrical insulators. E.g. H2O. 3) Metallic bonding - occurs between two metals. The valence electrons of a metal are not localised around the atom but exist as a cloud of electrons around all the ion centres. The metal is held together by strong forces of attraction between the electron cloud and the ion centres. Metals have good thermal and electrical conductivity as a result of the delocalised electrons.1) Ionic bonding - occurs between a metal an a none metal.
