Chemistry A Level Easter Revision Course – Online

Course Information

Course Description

Our online Chemistry A Level Easter crash courses span four days and are designed to get Year 13 students up to speed for their final exams. They include classes taught by experienced chemistry teachers who know what it takes to achieve excellent exam results.

During the course, students will recap everything they learned during the academic year, refreshing their knowledge and identifying and polishing any weaker areas. They’ll also develop their exam technique, ensuring they’ve got the know-how, skills and confidence to maximise their marks when they sit their exam.

In addition to online classes, students will receive a physical package of high-quality revision materials. Professionally printed and bound, these tailor-made resources have been designed to make revision easy and digestible, both during and after the course.

Our Easter crash courses are a great way to take revision up a notch, giving students the knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed in their summer exams.

Suitable for:

  • Year 13 students
  • Students wanting to revise content
  • Students looking to improve exam technique
  • Year 12 students
  • Students working at a grade D or below

If you need help deciding if you will benefit from this course you can contact us. Alternatively, you may prefer to book 1-2-1 tuition instead.

Our Tutors

We’re lucky to work with a fantastic team of professional tutors and teachers, many of whom have taught at some of the best state and independent schools in the country. We’ve hand-picked them not only for their glowing academic credentials but also for their innovative teaching styles, engaging personalities, and inspiring enthusiasm for their subjects.

Michail D.

Michail D.

Michail, also known as Mike, holds a first class honours degree and a PhD in Chemistry. He spent many years working in a wide range of technical and managerial roles, before eventually finding his calling as a teacher. He’s now racked up 12 years of experience in education, teaching most UK syllabuses, including Edexcel, AQA, and OCR (A) – his personal favourites.

Mike’s particularly fond of teaching mechanisms in organic chemistry, believing the key to understanding it is viewing it in terms of electrostatics. His teaching approach focuses on developing a thorough knowledge of the course content and confidence-building ­– believing both are equally essential for successfully answering exam questions. When he’s not teaching, Mike spends his time cycling, volunteering, and watching seabirds.

If you would like 1-2-1 tuition with Mike you can find his profile on our tuition platform.

Rob M.

Rob M.

Rob attended the University of Southampton and achieved a first class master’s in Chemistry. Since graduating, he’s been teaching for over six years and is the head of chemistry at a large secondary school in Hampshire. He’s been teaching the subject at A Level for his entire career, giving him a thorough knowledge of OCR exam board specifications.

Rob is passionate about his subject, in particular, organic chemistry and how it provides a toolkit to synthesise medicines and materials that shape our lives today and in the future. His teaching style focuses on the importance of precision of knowledge and helping his students develop context-based understanding and application skills using past paper questions. When he’s not teaching or tutoring GCSE, IGCSE and A Level Chemistry students, Robert enjoys taking to the stage in plays and musicals across the south coast.

Georgina A.

Georgina A.

Georgina has nine years of experience working as a teacher, six of which were spent teaching A Level Chemistry at sixth-form colleges across the south. She has a strong background in chemistry, including postdoctoral work at Oxford University, doctoral studies at Sussex University, and several months as a visiting researcher at both Sussex and Nottingham universities.

Today Georgina tutors GCSE, A Level and IB Chemistry to a wide range of students, while also working as a reviewer for Pearson and as an examiner for one of the main A Level Chemistry examination boards. This experience, along with her rich knowledge, creativity and resources, enables her to help students polish their study skills and exam technique. When Georgina isn’t teaching, she’s indulging her passion for science communication, peer reviewing scientific literature, and putting together science news features for her radio show.

Rob L.

Rob L.

Rob is an experienced chemistry teacher, starting his teaching journey in 2018 after completing his teacher training at Oxford University. He has held various positions in schools around Oxford, including the role of lead chemistry teacher.

Rob’s expertise lies in the Edexcel course. He excels in providing comprehensive support to students of all levels, helping them achieve their academic goals. His passion for teaching shines through in his student-centred approach, ensuring every individual receives the guidance they need to thrive academically.

Frequently Asked Questions

Haven't found what you're looking for? Please get in touch with our friendly team!

How do your online A Level Chemistry revision courses work?

Our online revision courses take place within Google Classroom, keeping everything organised in one convenient hub. From here, you’ll be able to access our bespoke course resources and join the live lessons which take place on Google Meet.

Students can interact with the teacher using their microphone or the chat feature.

All sessions are recorded. The lesson recordings are uploaded after each day, allowing you to watch them back for a recap whenever you like.

When will I receive the Google Classroom link for my online revision course?

You should receive your Google Classroom link via email the day before your course starts. Sometimes these emails go to the junk folder so check there before contacting us if you haven’t received it.

When will I receive my revision course handouts?

You will receive physical copies of the handouts 3-5 days before the start of your online course, as long as you book with us before the printing deadline. You can find the printing deadline in the course summary box on each booking page.

Please note: we can only send printed handouts to students in the UK. 

What if my exam board isn’t listed?

If you can’t see your exam board then we are afraid we aren’t running a course for it. However, this doesn’t mean that one of our courses won’t be useful for you. Contact us to see which course is more closely aligned with your exam board.
