"Dominic is an extremely able tutor, his tutoring rekindled my love for chemistry. Not only was he knowledgeable on the subject matter he also gave me useful exam tips and techniques. He was able to explain topics that I found particularly difficult despite being tutored in them several times, such as transition metals and electrode potentials. Dominic motivated me to believe in my ability which greatly improved my confidence."A Level Chemistry student
"Hani has been tutoring our daughter in chemistry and, in a space of three short months, Hani has turned our daughter from a grade C student to a predicted A* in her GCSE. Hani quickly connected with our daughter and identified her areas of weakness. Hani is methodical in her approach and sets achievable goals. As well as being an amazing tutor, she is an engaging, articulate and warm person with a great sense of humour. Hani has the unique ability of being able to bridge the gap between connecting with our teenage daughter as well as her middle aged parents. She has wonderful intuition and knows when to push forward and when to pull back resulting in our daughter’s growing confidence in chemistry. Hani gives 150 per cent of herself and it is obvious to see she really enjoys tutoring and is totally invested in your child’s success. Our daughter counts herself lucky to have Hani as a tutor and she actually looks forward to her weekly sessions with her. Every student, and every parent of a student, should have a Hani in their life!"Mother of GCSE Science student

A Level results day – how to prepare and what to expect
Results day can be chaotic and the better prepared you are the less stressful you will find it. Hopefully you will receive the necessary grades for your firm and/or insurance choice but is definitely worth being prepared and having a plan B just in case. University courses that have spaces available are listed on the UCAS Clearing course search which is already live and will be updated regularly throughout August.
