Online Chemistry A-level Mock Preparation Classes

Our Chemistry mock preparation courses will get students off to a flying start with their January mock preparation. Tutors will revise key Year 13 content which is likely to have been covered in the Autumn term. Attention will then be focused on improving exam technique. By showing students how to think like an examiner, tutors will enable students to consistently hit all assessment objectives and score those top marks.
Getting the ball rolling early with revision means students will have time to work on any weaknesses identified by the course during the Christmas holidays. Having this time to consolidate the skills and knowledge learnt means students will be ready to ace their exams when they return to school.
Learners are supported beyond the courses through the provision of high-quality, comprehensive and original materials, including notes, guides and question booklets. These resources have been specially created to supplement the learning experience and support students beyond the course.

How do our online courses work?

We use Google Meet for our online courses. Using the latest technology, our tutors will be able to replicate a real classroom environment. They can share teaching resources including powerpoints, use an online whiteboard and more.

It’s really easy to join our online courses. Click here to see our guide.

HANDOUTS – we will print and send you the handouts for the course as long as you book at least a week before the start of the course. Any bookings made within a week of the course start date will be sent digital copies.

Course Content

Classes are from 9.30am to 4.30pm everyday. Registration is at 9.15am.

There will be a one-hour lunch break and a couple of 10-min breaks in the morning and afternoon sessions.

AQA
Day 1: Physical and Inorganic Chemistry
Session 1
Thermodynamics – Lattice enthalpies, Born-Haber cycles, solution energetics, entroy
Session 2
Kinetics – Rates of reaction, collision theory, Maxwell-Boltzman, rate equations
12.30-13.30
LUNCH
Session 3
Equilibria and acids – Le Chatelier’s principle, equilibrium constants, acids, bases and buffer solutions
Session 4
Exam Technique – Managing time, maximising marks, Q&A
Day 2: Organic and Practical Chemistry
Session 1
Carbonyls & Aromatic Chemistry Oxygen-containing functional groups, amino acids, DNA, polymers
Session 2
Amines & Polymers Nitrogen-containing functional groups, amino acids, DNA, polymers
12.30-13.30
LUNCH
Session 3
Organic Analysis – IR spectroscopy, mass spectrometry, chromatography, NMR
Session 4
Practical exam questions – Multi-mark questions, practical skills assessed in written papers, Q&A
Past paper questions will be used throughout the revision of the topics to consolidate learning and teach students how to apply their knowledge to exam questions. There will be dedicated exam technique sessions each day where teachers will cover how to answer different mark questions, practical questions, data analysis, common misconceptions, where people lose marks and more.

Tutors

Our tutors are qualified teachers. Their enthusiastic and accessible teaching styles enable students to feel able to ask questions and interact in discussions. Our tutors receive consistently good feedback from students. Their expert knowledge and fresh teaching approach will help everything click into place.

Alan

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

Robert McGough

Rob McGough graduated from the University of Southampton with a First Class Masters in Chemistry. He has been teaching for over 6 years and is the Head of Chemistry at a large secondary school in Hampshire. He has been teaching A-level Chemistry this entire time, beginning with the context-heavy OCR Salters course before moving onto OCR (A) with the change in specifications.
 
Rob is particularly passionate about Organic Chemistry, and the way it provides a toolkit to synthesise medicines and materials that shape our lives both now and in the future. He recognises the importance of precision of knowledge and is skilled in both developing context-based understanding and application of ideas to past paper questions. In his spare time he tutors a number of students studying GCSE, IGCSE and A-level Chemistry, and performs in plays and musicals across the south coast!

Testimonials

The tutor knew loads about the subject and explained things clearly and concisely

*

I liked the huge number of questions we were supplied with and being able to ask the tutor questions

*

Alan was one of the best tutors I’ve had so far. Good at keeping us motivated and did well to cater the course to us. Seemed to really care about our learning and I feel like I really benefited
