Student Who Earned An A In Her A-level Chemistry Course As Part Of Her Foundation Year In University


I am a mature student who has had very little chemistry experience having left school 36 years ago.

I applied to university having no A levels and had to undertake chemistry, biology and physics as a foundation year which I had to pass to continue with my degree.  I was finding it difficult to understand any of my chemistry lectures and practicals.  I then found Graeme.  Graeme managed to bring back my level of chemistry`s essential knowledge, gradually, by identifying the gaps and filling the gaps. At the same time, we worked on the current curriculum, which Graeme knows very well. I was no longer behind in my understanding of the chemistry topics taught at university.  I moved up to an A by Easter. For my exam, I worked really hard, but Graeme had built up my confidence in chemistry, and I was amazed about how calm and confident I was on exam days.  I actually achieved a high A in my chemistry foundation (distinction)

I was a foundation student that always struggled with understanding chemistry and I would only ever achieve a D grade at best during lessons at university. With Graeme’s tutoring, I managed to achieve an A grade in A level chemistry.  Graeme teaches the specification to the finest detail which is what earned me the highest grade and his time and generous effort spent on me during and outside of the sessions meant I could obtain amazing results in the exams and I could not have done it without him.
