Dalton Chemistry Tuition

Revision Course Outline April 2023

For the fifth full academic year running, during the Easter school holidays I`ll be offering a limited number of places for an online A2 revision course. The course will run over three days and students will have the option to attend as little as one day or as many as all three. I’m offering the course on this basis because as an experienced Chemistry teacher I’m aware that students will always have strengths and weaknesses in the different branches of the Chemistry syllabus.

With the exams looming in June, the focus of this course will be exam technique. After reviewing the content of each topic, we will spend time looking at some of the trickiest questions associated with that topic.

I plan to cover all content of the A level syllabus. Following each day students will be sent the notes for each session, and also provided with access to a wealth of question-based resources. I will record each session and can provide students with the recordings on request.

 The course will take place online in a zoom meeting room. It is entirely up to the student as to how much they wish to be involved in the sessions. I know some students like to quietly absorb the information and message me questions privately, whereas some students will wish to contribute by sharing their answers and ask questions in front of the group.
