A 3rd year Chemistry student at University of Oxford looking to help you with any problems with the subject.
Chemistry may seem difficult to you. This is probably because you don't know WHY something works the way it works. You don't know the reason. A teacher told you that you should just assume it. Then you end up learning lots of stuff by heart and it's not difficult but also boring. Over and over again.
Obviously there are some concepts that even world class scientists cannot explain, luckily beyond high school syllabus. For A-level Chemistry understanding is the key. When you know the reason you can draw conclusions and make predictions. This is how science works.
My teaching experience includes various things, from tutoring state school children in science subjects to teaching elderly people how to use computer software.
During the free 15 minute session I'd like to hear what you expect from me. What concepts you are struggling with. How do you want the session to look like. I am happy to answer any questions.
We will go through topics carefully, do lots of examples, try to find reasons for why this works and that doesn't. For A-level doing loads of past papers and mastering so called "exam-technique" are essential. You can succeed by doing the right things in a right way.
To conclude, I think the sessions will be great and stimulating. You will learn a lot and you will learn efficiently. Chemistry is not about working hard, it's about working smart. And I'm absolutely sure you'll get these A*.
