Who will my tutor be?
Barry W
Chemistry Tutor
Barry is a highly qualified teacher of science and chemistry having taught for 20 years in the state and private sector, latterly as Head of Chemistry in one of the UK's top independent schools. He holds a First Class honours degree in Chemistry, A PGCE from a redbrick university and is a Chartered Chemist, Chartered Scientist and, a Chartered Science Teacher, which is awarded to only a very tiny percentage of the top Science Teachers in the UK.
How is the course structured?

Our chemistry A-Level courses are taught by our highly qualified chemistry tutors (many of whom are former teachers) and all teaching takes place online via Google Classrooms.

Students have two 2-hour live classes per week, plus an allotted ‘office hour’ (for short and long retake programmes) which is open to all students to join at the end of the week if they have any additional questions or homework queries. Office hour attendance is optional, but we encourage students to take advantage of this hour to further their independent study.

Teachers set homework and assessments via the Google Classroom portal and will send you homework marks and class updates as you progress. Depending on the course you choose, teachers also provide monthly reports and mock-exam-style assessments to ensure you’re on track to reach your grade.

What is the syllabus?
You will be studying the Pearson Edexcel Level 3 Advanced GCE in Chemistry (9CH0).
The syllabus above is for our group courses. For all one-one tutoring you can choose your course and syllabus.
