Core to the curriculum, and essential for the majority of science-based careers, chemistry is a challenge for many. But in the right hands, it can be great fun. Bold, experimental, surprising – it allows students to explore the world around them, and develop critical research and analytical skills.
Getting the right mix
Our tutors can help bring this dynamic subject to life. Taking a hands-on approach, we set the strong theoretical foundations that see our students flourish in the lab – and beyond.
We’ve worked with students of all ages, adapting our approach to cover core content, as well as addressing common stumbling blocks – such as good time management and effective exam techniques.
Gone are the days of simply memorising equations and the periodic table. Our tutors are all enthusiastic science advocates, and draw on a wide variety of resources and examples to create inspiring, relevant lessons that are rooted in the world around us.
Taking inspiration – and our name – from an ancient symbol of knowledge, we want Figtree to embody both the wisdom of experience and the power of continual growth.
We understand that by choosing Figtree as your tutoring agency, you’re putting your trust and your child’s future – or your future – in our hands. And that’s not a responsibility we take lightly. That’s why we’re always ready to go the extra mile – whether that’s checking-in outside hours, providing a unique support network for our tutors to tap into, or simply offering a listening ear when you need us.
