Chemistry is about why the material world behaves the way it does. It’s an amazing thing, and I can help you ‘get it’!*

I have been a full-time private tutor for 7 years with over 4500 tutoring hours during that time. Prior to that I taught chemistry at St. Paul’s Girls’ School in London for 12 years – who knows how many teaching hours I clocked up there…

I am new to TutorFair, but have decided to sign up as I like the model being used very much.

I am not just a qualified teacher: I have a First Class Degree in Chemistry and a PhD. I have also been awarded a national prize for the teaching of chemistry from the Salters’ Institute. Unlike most other tutors, I have spent much of my teaching career in (one of) the best school(s) in the country. I know how to stretch and challenge. I know how to prepare students for Oxbridge or similar entry, including help with Personal Statements. I have also written UCAS references both when I taught at St. Paul's and since then for home-schooled students. In short, if you are committed, I know how to get the best out of you.

I truly love my subject and really want everyone who has chosen to study it for A-level not only to ‘get it’, but to enjoy it, and to see how its principles explain so much about how the world works. I want to try and share the ‘wow’ factor that comes from studying chemistry, not by occasional headline fizzes and bangs, but by real understanding. The power of chemistry and the scientific method allow us to shine a light on the behaviour of the material world. Chemistry helps us solve pressing problems and make new substances and materials with unique and useful properties. These are skills to be treasured!

When I started tutoring in 2010 it was all from my home in Oxford face to face, but more recently my teaching is also online (and is how I will be teaching through Tutorfair). If you have never tried this before, do consider it! Accessing expertise that matches your needs does not have to be confined to your immediate vicinity. I use a combination of Skype and interactive ‘rooms’ hosted by Scribblar, and this makes the whole thing pretty seamless: we can see each other, we are both looking at the same resources and we can both annotate them - so there is really no downside!

My availability for lessons is usually during the school day. As long as you can get to a computer during a free period, then we can work. If you would like to try a lesson with me, please get in touch before booking. Lesson times are variable and are more complicated than the TutorFair system! It all depends on when your free periods are at school, so get in touch to see if we can make it work.

I’ll look forward to hearing from you.

*Please note: I am on holiday between August 25th and September 1st, and while I will be checking my messages daily (internet permitting), I may take a little longer than usual to respond!

An outstanding tutor

Ezi has tutored both our daughter and now our son through their A level Chemistry. Her resources are excellent and thorough and she knows the Course inside out. She inspired and developed a love of Chemistry for both my children and her teaching was always tailored to their individual needs. A fantastic tutor and we feel lucky to have discovered her.

My daughter got a B and my son got an A for his AS and is awaiting his A2 results this Summer.

Outstanding tutor!

I have gone through many chemistry tutors in my life and I am certain that Ezi is the best by far! She knows how to teach chemistry by making good analogies and having great notes on each part of the A-level spec. Her teaching methods are outstanding and It is obvious that she has been a teacher at a leading all girls school before becoming a tutor. Ezi has took me from a mediocre student to a very good chemist in a year of intense work. Each lesson was extremely productive and Ezi herself wants her students to do well in their exams which I find very important. She has never had a problem to donate some of her free time in order to help me with some more complex questions or bits of the spec that I found tricky understanding. Overall I can 100% recommend her to anyone needing help with chemistry.

Absolutely amazing tutor!

Ezi helped me throughout my two years of A-level chemistry studies. I really enjoyed the way she taught me, how she presented her notes and questions and as well as the way she structured her lessons which really helped the understanding of the science not just to achieving high marks. Throughout the two years, she gave me tremendous amount of help. I have had many chemistry tutors before during GCSE studies and previous science studies, but none of them are as professional, as clear and as organised as Ezi. She also comes from a strong teaching background. Having used to teach in one of the top schools in the country, I think Ezi is the best chemistry tutor out there. She was very kind!
Subject:
Chemistry
Outcome:
She helped me to achieve nearly full marks in AS chemistry and overall grade was two marks away form an A*.

Excellent and Inspirational Chemistry Tutor

Ezi rode to our rescue after my daughter had failed to take her A Levels due to extreme exam nerves. Ezi’s well-honed, systematic approach to Chemistry and her long experience in teaching A level exam technique are excellent. But it was her upbeat approach and obvious enthusiasm for her subject, combined with her endless patience and adaptability that enabled my daughter to sit the exam this summer. Ezi managed to inspire her with the confidence and purpose to keep going in her least liked subject, as well as supporting her in overcoming a couple of last minute panics on the way. I can warmly recommend Ezi to anyone needing a good grade in A level Chemistry.

You will not find a better tutor than Ezi!

Ezi Williams has solely taught my son the entire Chemistry A level syllabus over the last two years and I thoroughly recommend her as a tutor. Ezi has a love for her subject which shines through in her lessons and is highly contagious - my son now loves Chemistry! Ezi is highly experienced, organised and also has an extensive knowledge of the subject that she teaches - she has been able to extend beyond the syllabus whenever questions are asked. She has an amazing rapport with her students and my son looked forward to his lessons with her. Ezi is a gem of a tutor and I’m so pleased that we found her when we did!
Subject:
Chemistry
Outcome:
Very happy student on track for his A*, but more importantly a student who has found a love for Chemistry!

Highly recommended

Ezi taught my daughter A-level chemistry and was invaluable in helping her with her confidence, identifying where she needed to plug the gaps in her knowledge and helping her use her knowledge to extend her thinking. Ezi's enthusiasm and passion for the subject was infectious and her ability to explain concepts in several different ways meant that my daughter's understanding of the subject deepened dramatically. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Ezi to any chemisty student- I am absolutely positive they would not regret it.

In a class of her own

Ezi is in a class of her own as a tutor. She knows her subject inside out and her credentials speak for themselves, My daughter was immediately at ease with her as they covered an enormous amount of material during a summer revision period. The progress was excellent and my daughter begins her second year in a much more secure place as a result. Ezi is engaging, focused and supportive and instils confidence in both parent and child. She also provides excellent feedback. She was equally helpful with advice and comment on the university application process. I (and my daughter) recommend her without hesitation.

Amazing tutor

Ezi was an amazing tutor! She prepared me for chemistry A-levels and interviews at universities, both of which went really well. She was great at explaining complex concepts in a very simple way. Definitely would recommend her to every student.

Ezi is a fantastic tutor who has a completely unique style. Her energy and enthusiasm means I always look forward to my lessons and her help has been invaluable for my first year of A Levels. She has resources for every possible topic and is always willing to go through any issues or queries, including past paper questions.
