Year 11 and 12 Chemistry can be intimidating. Students need to learn heaps of content, be able to recognize reactions and analyse chemical systems. The number of concepts students need to master is overwhelming, and the workload only adds up as they move up the curriculum. If your child doesn't hit the ground running, if they don't develop adequate study habits it's easy to get swept away by the sheer number of demands.

Tutors we work with know that. They've been there. Being approached by a mentor rather than a teacher makes it easier for students to develop an appreciation for chemistry. That's what it comes down to - someone making sure your child doesn't give up.
For some students it's just passing a test, for others it's getting through VCE with flying colours, maybe even preparing for a career in STEM. Whatever the goal, we are there to support your child through it all.
So what's the next step?
Give us a call and we will organise a chemistry tutor in Clyde North to come to your home for one-on-one tutoring, at a time that works for you and your child.
We allocate local Clyde North chemistry tutors so scheduling is never an issue. Changed your mind or need to postpone the lesson? No worries, there are no cancellation costs.
On top of that, the first lesson is a trial so if you don't like the tutor we'll find someone else who is better suited.
Have a question? We are happy to help.
Give us a call.

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.
We have used combinations of various learning techniques like talking back, note making, mock revisions and assessment, listening, following up weak areas, confidence building, allowing the student to talk more than me, regular interaction and making it a fun learning
I believe Noah is very eager to achieve. This gives him drive, but at his age it can also lead to impatience. I believe that Noah needs to have this drive tempered with wisdom. However, to quench this drive entirely would be beyond foolhardy. I see in Noah the potential for high academic achievement once he learns the value of giving himself time to plan and organise his thoughts more clearly.
The main challenges Jordana faced in the lead up to her exams were in the graphing of non-polynomial functions. These graphs will be revisited in mathematical methods in both year 11 and 12, providing plenty of opportunity to improve!
Hi, Ruhail has been great and his flexibility has helped enormously. He spent 3.5 hours with Casey last weekend as she had a test she was very concerned about. Casey did much better in her test than she would have done and we are already over the moon. Please pass on our thanks.
Yes, we are very pleased that Sophia likes Rebecca and the tutoring seems to be going well. Rebecca obviously has patience and takes the time to explain things so Sophia can follow them and work through the maths, which is exactly what we wanted. The problem with the school is they move along so fast that there is not enough practice time, and we (the parents) are not familiar with what they teach so we can't just help out quickly; we have to re-learn it ourselves first, and then we're probably not good at explaining clearly. That's why it is great having Rebecca who can obviously explain things in a way Sophia understands. The main thing is that Sophia sees herself as '˜no good at maths', but when something is explained so she understands it, she is very pleased when she can get the right answers. A lot of it is a confidence thing I think, and also her school maths teacher has been quite negative about her work; so hopefully the tutoring will rebuild some of Sophia's general confidence over time, which would be great. Sophia will never be a star at maths, but if she can just get passes instead of always negative marks and comments from school, we will be quite happy with that. Sophia is very good at English/Hums and art; maths is her weak area, and we are very pleased (and actually surprised) that she is sitting through an hour of maths tutoring each week without complaint. We did not know how it would go; we tried one other tutor a few months ago , a retired male maths teacher - and she hated it. So this time we are very happy.
So far so good with Tim. Tim is now tutoring both my kids and both are really happy with him. Results will show in the months to come. It is early days but we are very happy so far.
