Why would you ever need to know about combustion, corrosion, and electrochemical processes? Most students wonder about that too, especially if they don't plan on going into science.
Chemistry can seem abstract, learning about elements and matter, how equilibrium occurs and how chemical systems react. No wonder students get discouraged.
All it takes for a student to go from a mild distaste for chemistry to understanding what is scribbled in the textbook is someone to point out what to avoid and where to put in that extra hour of revision. It's like with any problem situation in schooling and even in their personal life, students need to know about using effective strategies. Then all you need is persistence, staying on task until you reach your goal.
If your child is struggling in school, chances are you've already thought about finding a tutor. Be it passing a test, getting your child’s grade up or preparing for a career in science, we work with local Carnegie chemistry tutors who can get your child to stand on their own two feet. This is how we do it.
We organise one-on-one lessons at your home, at a time that fits your schedule. There are no hidden fees, just a simple hourly rate.
Not happy with the first lesson? No need to worry, it comes as a risk-free trial and we find you another local Carnegie chemistry tutor who is a better match.

The proof is always in the action, to get an idea of how tutoring works in practice check out some feedback from tutors. Typically tutors focus on strategies needed to make progress, what's going well and what needs improvement. Of course, every tutor has their own unique style that is tailored to your child's specific needs.
Fayzia uses the pen to paper method quite well however need practice transposing that into devices such as a calculator. She understand that it is okay to make mistakes however she is quite hard on herself for making them. She still needs to learn how to notice that something is wrong with equations when she makes mistakes. She is still learning how to use the rules and what they mean however I don't think that that is an issue currently as it will come with practice.
Tara is polite and are willing to ask lots of questions. This component is not assessed since the nature of the lesson is for me to assist her with school work.However, I can tell that Tara is eager to learn. Tara has small hand writing which can be a disadvantage when it comes to assessments, but Tara is neat with her working out.
There are still some minor gaps in basic mathematical knowledge. However, with more time and dedication spent on doing maths homework set by the school or from workbooks, she will slowly become more confident in solving mathematical problems. I have noticed that Amani is still a bit slow in remembering the times table, also from her pre-test for her TAS subject, she struggles slightly with visualising and answering questions involving 3D shapes.
Patrick is great, he is working so well with Drew. He has already given Drew the confidence he needs to be able to learn. Thank you for sending Patrick.
We are very impressed with Geoff. He was very kind and engaging with Michael today. Thank you.
Gary is doing a great job and Emilee is really appreciative of their time together.
