“85% of our A-Level students achieved a min of a B in 2017”
What is A-Level Chemistry Tuition?
The study of chemistry is driven by the desire to explain the behaviour of the materials around us. To comprehend why an autumn leaf turns red, why a diamond is hard or why soap cleans us requires an understanding of chemistry. The new AS and A levels in Chemistry are stand-alone linear qualifications, where marks gained at AS level do not contribute to the final A-level grade in any shape or form. Hence the concept of A2 disappears completely. Our A-Level Chemistry Tuition gives students the perfect foundation to achieve the best they can.
What we cover in A-Level Chemistry Tuition?
Students will learn methods which will help with their A-Level Chemistry exam, by using, applying, consolidating and reinforcing learning. Students are also taught to independently research different aspects of A-Level Chemistry to develop and extend their knowledge.
Students will cover topics such as:
Physical Chemistry – Atomic structure, Bonding, Energetics, Kinetics, Chemical equilibria, Oxidation, Thermodynamics, Rate equations, Electrode potentials and electrochemical cells.
Inorganic Chemistry – Periodicity, Group 2, the alkaline earth metals, Group 7(17), the halogens, Properties of Period 3 elements & their oxides, Transition metals, Reactions of ions in aqueous solution.
Organic Chemistry – Alkanes, Halogenoalkanes, Alkenes, Alcohols, Organic analysis, Optical isomerism, Aldehydes and ketones, Carboxylic acids and derivatives, Aromatic chemistry & Amines.
Our A-Level Chemistry Tuition lessons are designed to ensure that students grasp the new topics they are learning and to help fill in any gaps or weaknesses in their knowledge. We also help them to get prepared for their exams with plenty of practice and revision of exam techniques and methods for answering the questions.
How does our A-Level Chemistry Tuition work?
- Student attends a 1-hour lesson
- The tutor will go through the topic and explain the concept
- Students will be given our bespoke activity worksheets to work through
- The tutor will provide students with individual support and feedback
- Then move onto some more teaching followed by some exam style questions
- Tutor will conclude the lesson with some form of assessment and set homework
Which exam boards we cover?
We offer A-Level courses in all subjects across the main U.K exam boards in a classroom setting:
Edexcel | AQA | OCR | WJEC
Lessons are planned from our bespoke Scheme of Works (SOW). Our syllabus ensures students cover the key topics from their exam board, which means they closely support the work your child is doing at school. Also incorporating specific learning strategies and memory boosting techniques, our A-Level Chemistry Tuition lessons will assist your child in becoming an effective lifelong learner. All this work will build towards their A-Level Chemistry exam in the summer.
