Chemistry Tutoring for NCEA and Cambridge

Our chemistry tutors are all specialists in their fields. Many are continuing to study chemistry at university level, in various fields from chemical engineering to pharmacy. They’ve also been trained in methods designed specifically for tutoring chemistry for students of both NCEA and Cambridge.

These methods are supported by fantastic research, and include the following:

  • Using quizzing effectively (to introduce topics and to review them)
  • Asking deep explanatory questions
  • Helping students to make connections between abstract ideas and concrete examples
  • Helping students effectively manage their study time.

The Details: What our Chemistry Tutors Know

Chemistry is an advanced course, designed to give students a thorough understanding of the chemical world and a solid basis on which to build a scientific career if they choose to. The course covers the chemistry of molecules, organic matter (especially carbon), aqueous systems and processes of chemical reactivity. Our home tutors have all recently come through this curriculum in either NCEA or Cambridge, and are well-equipped in terms of general knowledge about each system and specific knowledge about the course content.
