What is Chemistry?

Chemistry is the study of matter, the particles they are made of, and how these particles interact with each other. This covers how the atoms make up molecules, what happens when they react - the energy absorbed or released and the new substances formed during these chemical reactions. Everything in the world we can see or touch or smell is a chemical meaning Chemistry is a part of everything we do in our lives. Matter made up of atoms; pure substances with one type of atom only are called elements; those made from molecules, more than one type of atom bound together are called compounds. This means that chemistry is at the heart of everything in the world, from naturally occurring structures such as rivers and mountains, to the materials used to build the tallest skyscrapers or make up the most complex medicines.

Chemistry Tuition at GCSE and IGCSE

At GCSE level students usually take Chemistry as a single science, resulting in one stand alone GCSE, usually with Physics and Biology also taken as separate sciences alongside, resulting in three GCSEs in total; or as part of Dual or Combined Science, where a reduced syllabus of all three Sciences are taken resulting in two or one GCSE.

The exam format is typically two written papers, each 1 hour and forty five minutes long. Topics studied can include Atomic Structure, the Periodic Table, Chemical Bonds and the Structure of Matter, Physical and Chemical Changes, Energy Changes in Reactions, Organic Chemistry, Chemical Analysis, The Atmosphere, Industrial Processes. There will also be questions set based on the practical activities students have carried out throughout the course.

Chemistry Tuition at A-Level

At A-Level the assessment is linear, with examinations taken at the end of two years for A-Level. Typically this will involve three papers each two hours long for A-Level. Students will also have practical skills assessed throughout the course and also have to answer questions based on practical activities. The three main area of study are Physical, Inorganic and Organic Chemistry, but with significantly more analysis and use of mathematics than at GCSE level.

A-Level Chemistry can lead on to a wide variety of University Courses and careers including Biochemistry, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Dentistry, Geology, Medicine, Pharmacy, Veterinary Science amongst many others.

Tuition with a qualified Chemistry teacher at your home in Chesterfield costs from £46.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified Chemistry teacher costs from £40.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and Chemistry tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves a Chemistry tutor coming to your home in Chesterfield to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the Chemistry tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the Chemistry tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the Chemistry tutor is required to travel to your home, in Chesterfield. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your Chemistry tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your Chemistry tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of Chemistry tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group Chemistry tuition in Chesterfield depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
