KS3 and IGCSE Chemistry Video Courses

"My daughter learned more from the first lesson than she did from an entire year of lessons from another online provider!"

 

As an alternative to my live online Home Ed Classes, I will be offering pre-recorded Video Courses from September 2021. Each class in the Video Course will come with a video, accompanying notes to complete during the class and self-marked consolidation work (all issued through Google Classroom). The videos will require active engagement - students will be encouraged to pause the video regularly to try activities. Explanations will then be provided when they resume the video. Classes will be released on a weekly basis and will follow the same teaching order and similar content to the live classes. As part of the resources, students will be set regular self-marked topic tests at IGCSE and two mock exams with a video walk through of the mark schemes to help enhance understanding. For those who would like more input at IGCSE, you can choose to opt for the Video+ Course. In addition to the class resources, The Video+ Course will provide access to the chat feature in the classroom for more minor queries, twice weekly drop in help sessions for more major queries and you will be able to submit the approximately half termly tests and mock exams to me for marking and written feedback. I really hope that these courses will enable more students to access high quality Chemistry teaching. 

The Video Courses on offer include:

1-year Edexcel IGCSE Chemistry Video Course

This is a 1-year course that runs over two terms starting in September. Two classes are released per week in term time. Each class comes with follow up consolidation work for which mark-schemes will be provided. There will be regular topic tests as well as 2 mock exams. Please note all work on this course is self-marked. This course costs £5 per class and runs over 27 weeks. (Total cost approximately £270.)

1-year Edexcel IGCSE Chemistry Video+ Course

In addition to the resources provided in the Video Course, this also provides access to support as detailed above, including the chat feature in the Classroom, twice weekly drop in help sessions and marking and feedback on the half-termly assessments and mock exams. Please note the standard consolidation work that follows each lesson is self-marked, but you can ask for help with any problems. This course costs £10 per class and runs over 27 weeks. (Total cost approximately £540.)

2-year Edexcel IGCSE Chemistry Video Course

This is a 2-year course that runs over five terms starting in September. One class is released per week in term time. Each class comes with follow up consolidation work for which mark-schemes will be provided. There will be a roughly half termly test, a longer end of year exam, as well as two mock exams. Please note all work on this course is self-marked. This course costs £5 per class and runs over approximately 60 weeks. This provides more time for consolidation and revision than the 1-year course and is likely to be a better option for younger students or those with a busier schedule. (Total cost approximately £300.)

2-year Edexcel IGCSE Chemistry Video+ Course

In addition to the resources provided in the Video Course, this also provides access to support as detailed above, including the chat feature in the Classroom, twice weekly drop in help sessions and marking and feedback on the half-termly assessments, end of year exam and mock exams. Please note the standard consolidation work that follows each lesson is self-marked, but you can ask for help with any problems. This course costs £10 per class and runs over approximately 60 weeks. (Total cost approximately £600.)

1-year KS3 Chemistry Video Course

This is a 1-year course that runs for the equivalent of the school year. One class is released per week in term time. Each class comes with follow up consolidation work for which mark-schemes will be provided where appropriate - some of the activities will be practical based kitchen Chemistry rather than worksheets. There will be a half termly more lengthy piece of work, often based around a practical investigation. An exemplar piece of work will be provided to model what a good piece of work might look like. Please note all work on this course is self-marked. This course costs £5 per class and runs over 38 weeks. (Total cost £190.)

IGCSE Chemistry Students are of course welcome to register for the Video Course and upgrade to the Video+ Course, should they find they would benefit from extra input. 

Please note times for the help sessions will be published in early September, once I have finalised my schedule. If students are unable to attend a help session, they are welcome to send an email instead.
