Welcome to CanDoChem
Small group classes and video courses for home educated students
and individual tuition in Chemistry
As an expert teacher and current examiner, I know exactly what is required to achieve success in Chemistry. I am an Oxbridge educated, former Head of Chemistry with a PGCE and a Masters in Education. Chemistry is a conceptually challenging subject that students have to understand in order to be able to apply their knowledge to answer questions. I excel in breaking Chemistry down into understandable chunks, whilst engaging students and building their confidence. My teaching is very interactive and involves students doing lots of practise to build the necessary skills and understanding. All classes and tuition sessions include follow up work to consolidate the skills we have worked on together. Please follow the links to find out more about what I offer.

"I cannot recommend Kate highly enough. She knew exactly how to engage my son and build his knowledge and confidence in Chemistry.... After six months working with Kate, my son’s mark had moved up 3 grade boundaries. The results speak for themselves. "

"Kate is without doubt, the best Science tutor/teacher I have come across. She has become the bar with which I now compare others. Kate combines subject mastery with teaching brilliance. She is a rare find."
