Have you noticed the billboard advertisements on your daily commute into work for the franchise tutoring agencies? Maybe you have noticed the advertisements for the tutoring agencies on the side of the local buses or tubes? Or maybe you have noticed the flyers for the tutoring agencies in your junk mail that arrives in the mail along with your monthly bills. Have you noticed that they all follow the same format? A child is seen smiling as they work with their private tutor as they sit around a table. Or another child is seen holding up their A-level results letter which states they have earned A* or A grades on their exams and are going off to the university of their choice. Or another advertisement states that their franchise tutoring agencies almost guarantees an A* or A grade on the final exam of A-level courses.
As I teach and tutor A level Chemistry I notice that some of my students find the maths used in solving computation type problems easy to follow and others seem to find these types of problems the area where they lose the most points on their end of topic exams. Does one of these scenarios sound like you? Do you wish there was an easier way to solve these types of problems and achieve a good grade in A level Chemistry?
