I am an enthusiastic and dedicated chemistry tutor.  I graduated from Queen’s University Belfast in 1993, with a degree in Biochemistry. I went on to obtain a PGCE qualification, giving me Qualified Teacher Status (QTS).  

After teaching in the UK for 3 years, I went to the Middle East to teach in a top international school, which follows the British curriculum and prepares students for the Cambridge International Examinations. During my time abroad, I also carried out thousands of hours of private tuition. I became very well known as a tutor who helped students achieve top grades. The ability to do this is borne out of experience and dedication, and from working in an environment where top grades are expected. I believe that, unless a teacher has taught in a very academic school, where many students achieve A* grades, it can be exceedingly difficult for them to know what is required.  The style of teaching that I have developed over nearly 3 decades will undoubtedly help students to access the top grades they require.

My online tuition business has gone from strength to strength. I have many testimonials on my website which reflect the satisfaction of parents and students.
