Are you looking for help for your child’s Chemistry Revision, but don’t know where to start?

No one expected this academic year to turn out the way it has. Our children have been denied the chance to show what they are capable of in an exam setting. While unavoidable, it puts a strain on many students who did not achieve a true reflection of their capabilities in their prelim or mock exams.

As we don’t know when the schools will reopen, parents are naturally concerned about their children’s education. Assuming pupils will return to school in August or September, authorities will have a difficult task. There will be a huge disparity in what pupils have learned (or can remember) of the previous year’s coursework. Perhaps pupils will even have to resit the previous school year!

If your child has prepared, however, they will be able to start the new academic year with the knowledge they need.

What I’ll provide:

Studies have shown revision is most effective in small chunks of time. This webinar programme does just that. Regular 30 min sessions where your child can engage and get their questions answered in real time. On demand replays so your son or daughter can replay the webinar as many times as needed without embarrassment.

This programme will focus on the basics of chemistry: the essential knowledge required for entering certificate courses in senior school. I will go over these in detail describing exactly what they need to progress with confidence in chemistry.

By the time they’re back at school they’ll be fully prepared to continue to the next level, with a firm foundation in the basics. When they finally do sit the exam they’ll achieve the best grade they can.

Let me introduce myself….

My name is Dr. Mary McPhail and I want to help your child get the best grade possible in their Chemistry exam.

I’ve been teaching Chemistry in Scottish secondary schools for over 20 years. Before that I worked in scientific research, both here and in the U.S.A. gaining two degrees. As a fully qualified educational professional I’ve helped hundreds of students pass their Chemistry exams. I know the courses inside and out, including which aspects students find most difficult, and the most common mistakes they make in the exam.

Don’t just take my word for it, here are some comments from students of the online revision programmes…

Short, clear precise lessons. Able to view lessons whenever possible which helped with my revision. Well structured throughout the weeks so it was very clear to follow. Taught at a good pace to which I could keep up easily.

I found the course very helpful. Any queries regarding specific areas I was unsure of were always answered promptly. The learnings were clear and concise and and the option to re watch the lesson to recap was invaluable . Mary couldn’t do more to assist in my tuition .
