Online A-level Chemistry and Biology Tuition
My tutoring experience
I’ve been a specialist A-level tutor for 10 years and tutored online for the last 6 years, so I’ve built up thousands of hours of experience. I also tutor online for the Open University, so I’ve been trained by them and I get regular feedback on my teaching. All in all, you can be confident that I know how to deliver effective online lessons. You can read more about my approach to tuition here and more about me here.
How online tuition works
For online tuition, I use three tools:
I have found Gemma to be very approachable and understanding, especially compared to other tutors that I have had. She makes me feel relaxed in lessons and comfortable to say if I don’t understand something. If I don’t understand something the first time she explains it she will go over it again with a different, more simplified method and she never makes me feel stupid for not understanding. Gemma has made me realise that chemistry is much easier than I had thought!
What to expect in your intro session
The introductory session is all about getting set up, making sure you’re comfortable with online tuition and making a plan of action for future lessons.
The first thing we’ll do is check that all of the tech is set up correctly and fix any issues with that. Once we’re sorted I’ll show you around the online classroom and make sure you know how to get the most out of your lessons.
Then we’ll talk about your studies and work out what I need to do to help you get your grades. This will include agreeing on what we need to do together as well as what you need to do in your own time so that whenever you sit down to study you know exactly what you’re supposed to be doing. We’ll also make sure you’re working with the resources that will give you the best possible chance of getting your grades up.
Why online tuition might be the best option for you
When you’re choosing a tutor, it’s important you find someone who has excellent subject knowledge, knows what you need to do to get the marks in the exam and has the skills to teach you all of this.
What’s equally important is that you find a tutor who ‘gets’ you, can teach you everything in a way that makes sense to you, and that you feel comfortable talking through your struggles with.
So it’s not enough to just find a good tutor, you need to find the tutor who is right for you. And unless you’re very lucky, that tutor probably doesn’t live down the road from you.
Before they come to me, many of the students I work with have wasted time (and money) on local tutors that they didn’t get on with, didn’t know their stuff and in more than one case regularly had them in tears in the lessons.
If you go for online tuition, you won’t be in this position. You’ll have access to tutors all over the country, so you work with the tutor that will suit you best, rather than being restricted to one who’s available in your local area.
