At the end of each lesson, you have the opportunity to talk to the tutor about your child’s progress and can ask any questions.
Although there are no sharp boundaries between sciences such as chemistry, physics and biology, chemistry is the study of the nature, properties, and composition of matter, and how these undergo changes. Chemistry pervades many fields including agriculture, art, biochemistry, dietetics, engineering, environmental studies, food, forensic science, forestry, horticulture, law, medicine, oceanography, pharmacy, sports science and winemaking.
Our chemistry tutors are highly qualified to provide tuition in secondary education chemistry. They received excellent study scores in chemistry for VCE and are now studying science-related courses at university, including medicine, bio-medicine, pharmacy, science and nutrition. They are passionate about the science field, and enjoy passing on their enthusiasm to students.
Our tutors at Strive for Excellence provide students with a solid foundation in all aspects of chemistry including stoichiometry, acids and bases, gas laws, analytical chemistry, equilibrium, galvanic and electrolytic cells, redox reactions, organic chemistry. We give students tuition in the basic practical skills of chemistry such as writing chemical formulae, balanced equations, using the periodic table and the mathematical concepts that will allow them to perform at the highest possible level. We assist students to link their experimental results to the theory that they are meant to be learning.
At Strive for Excellence we find that students come to our Chemistry tutoring because they are struggling with the abstract nature of chemistry. For example, because they are not able to actually see particles they find it difficult to have a mental picture of what is going on and why things work as they do. Through the use of tools such as analogies, models, and real life examples, our highly skilled tutors can help students overcome this hurdle.
We know that it is important for students to know what to expect in an exam and to prepare extensively for them. The previously administered mid-year exam no longer exists, making the final exam 60% of the overall mark. Students must perform well on this exam in order to obtain excellent overall marks. Chemistry is scaled up considerably, therefore obtaining a good score in the subject can make a significant different to a student’s ATAR score. However, for this very reason, the number of students undertaking the course has also increased dramatically, making it more difficult to achieve top grades. It is also popular because it is either a prerequisite for many university courses or offers bonus marks for university courses. At Strive for Excellence we have extensive experience in exam coaching and our students regularly complete practice tests in order to give them a good understanding of the types of questions that may be asked in a typical exam.
