Chemistry A-Level Easter Revision Classes

These courses are designed to prepare the students for the summer exams. Classes are separated by exam board and are taught by experienced, professional tutors. Your course tutor will teach a topic before going through past paper questions to consolidate learning and practice exam technique. Your tutor will use this past paper practice to give tips about how to get the most marks and the best approach to answering questions. Any weaknesses can be identified and worked on before moving on to the next topic.

Our courses cover the whole specification which means they’re a great way to kick start revision or can be used to identify and fill in any gaps in knowledge. You should leave the course feeling confident and prepared for your exams.

Chemistry A-Level Easter Revision Classes

Tutor: Alan Reay

Alan has a Masters degree and PhD in Chemistry from the University of York. His PhD research focused on the development of nanoparticle palladium catalysts and their use in the modification of biomolecules. Following his PhD he worked as a post-doctoral researcher in York, developing low-cost automated reaction platforms, before moving to Goettingen in Germany to develop new ruthenium catalysts for the design of new organic reaction pathways.
 
Alan subsequently completed a PGCE at King’s College, London, and he now works as a Chemistry teacher at a secondary school in London. He has worked as a private GCSE and A-Level tutor for 6 years, and focuses his teaching on building students’ confidence through an open, dialogic teaching style
