well i got myself a job as a private tutor for a AS level chemistry student, just wondering what sort of preparation should i do, considering i know how overbearing cw can be when theres lots of little pieces, im just thinking cover exam style questions, and general understanding etc etc and set a couple of simple problems a week i can check over quickly to see if she is getting it

    First of all I'd make sure you are getting a decent amount for doing it, I got £7.50 an hour which was nice.

    Secondly dont do it for them, this I found was an easy trap to fall into, especially if the person is thick, you get tired of explaining why they are wrong and just write it.

    yikes.

    if i was paying that much for a private tutor, i'd want them to at least have a degree in their subject, if not also a teaching qualification.

    Somethings only worth what someone will pay, if he can not get more than £20 an hour then he is worth that much.

    I got tutored through my a-levels, I had a head of department for £18 an hour. Someone is being very stupid, no undergrad is worth £20/hr.

    I couldnt possibly comment, what wheresmyplacebo does for £20 an hour is completely his business.

    middle class rudegirl, shes funny as in she tries to be thick but then slipped up she wants to be a midwife and maybe a doctor haha

    i get the feeling she knows it but doesnt quite know how to explain it, i think that just needs practice
