Science Tuition in Derbyshire and Online

A Level Chemistry Tuition

I was a very successful Head of Department and since retirement I have been giving private lessons to students in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, either in their own home or from my home in Loscoe, near Heanor and am also available to provide online tuition via WhatsApp to students located anywhere in the world.

I tutor both home educated and school children and am familiar with all the major syllabi, such as Nuffield, Edexcel and AQA.

I tutor Chemistry up to 'A' Level and Science to GCSE / SATs level and I like to make the sessions both enjoyable and challenging, believing that creating a relaxed, fun learning environment aids the learning process.

As part of the chemistry classes I include techniques for achieving good results in your exam, such as revision techniques and the best approach when answering exam questions.


Tuition Rates

My A-level tuition rates are £39 per hour at my home address and I would negotiate a rate for travelling to other destination.  I am happy to travel to and provide private tuition in Nottingham, Derby, Chesterfield and Mansfield and other nearby towns in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, as well as providing online tuition via WhatsApp.

Derby and Nottingham Science Tutor


"Mr Woods has been such a great tutor. I had started off my AS Level Chemistry getting very low grades. Once Mr Woods started tutoring me my grades improved significantly with me getting A's. Not only do you learn a lot from his sessions you also have fun! I truly recommend him as he has a real passion for chemistry which reflects in his teaching and he makes the subject very interesting. I would give him 5/5 for the way that he has taught me."
