    Our garden office  (aka  "Dave's Cave") is fully equipped with models, posters,  whiteboards and games. Molecular models are a vital tool for enhancing students' grasp of biological and chemical mechanisms. All these resources help to enhance the students' ability to visualise more easily and therefore understand better the topics under consideration.

  • 3 x Webcams

    The use of online video and molecular models can help significantly with "making the invisible visible". A full set of molymod models and three different cameras enable us to discuss and demonstrate close up, dipoles, mechanisms and molecular shapes. A fully adjustable desktop camera allows close up views of  test tube reactions and molecular models to be shared clearly with all students

  • Models

    Many of our models are magnetised. This enables us to simulate the bonding which can happen beween atoms and molecules. Magnetic whiteboards coupled with magnetic symbols, ionic and molecular models help to make our expositions as clear and as palatable as possible .

  • Demonstrations

    One corner of "Dave's Cave" is equipped with a range of laboratory chemicals and apparatus. Short, live, "impromptu" demonstrations are used to enhance tutorials and will consolidate understanding. Students who might have misunderstood or simply missed practical work can easily be brought "up to speed" by the use of such live demonstrations as required.

  • Microscopy

    With over 120 pre-prepared, high quality plant and animal slides, we can cover all the microscopy requirements for biology A level, IB Diploma and GCSE and IGCSE as well as preparing live slides and videos to show a variety of processes. We are currently working on ways to make the microscopy live on line.

     

  • Genuine data

    Our lab facilities enable us to obtain genuine chemical analysis data which although remote, will help students to appreciate the importance of evaluation and error analysis. We can perform a range of titrimetric and gravimetric procedures which enhance the practical experience gained by students.

  • Small group tutorials (1:2,3 or 4)

    Small group tutorials (1:2,3 or 4)

    Team up with others to improve your chemistry and biology.

    A cost effective and sociable way to improve your grades :

    • small group online tutorials ( up to 4 students)
    • use tutor time as you need it ( 20 minute slots)
    • minimum of 20 minutes per week - no maximum
    • full access to online resources and online simulations
    • live practical demonstrations
    • meet without tutor as required
    • create and maintain team blog

    We charge £48 per hour for tutor time regardless of group size. We charge only for the time that the tutor is actually online with the group.

  • Junior Science classes - up to 3 students

    Junior Science classes - up to 3 students

    A practical and fun addition to science "home" schooling,  this "kitchen chemistry" course is designed to inspire youngsters  who are keen to get to grips with the concepts of types of materials, chemical and physical changes and separation techniques. 

    • maximum group size 3
    • some adult supervision required
    • 40 minutes per week
    • uses everyday chemical ingredients and materials
    • aimed at years 5 - 8 

    Our junior science course offers a series of  fun, 40 minute, practical science sessions for children in the later years of primary or early years of secondary schooling ( year 5 - 8) . We encourage groups of two three friends - ( usually in the same year group) to book a course together.

  • Web support for students

    Web support for students

    All our tutorial work is supported by an ever increasing bank of online resources.

    • graphics
    • animations
    • selected videos
    • quizlets
    • exam questions 

    Organised in the form of a blog, resources include animations, graphics, videos, questions and quizzes. The blog's responsive layout enables it to be accessed easily via tablet, phone and laptop. All registered students will have access to the relevant parts of this ever-growing resource bank.

    Advanced users are able to maintain their own blog sections.

  • Online experiment simulations

    Online experiment simulations

    Ideal for students with limited access to practical facilities - these simulations are accessible for all registered students and teachers. Specific simulations can be accessed via the subject pages in mychem.co.uk or via the simulations menu 

    • chemistry, physics and biology 
    • GCSE, IGCSE, A level and IBDP 
    • manipulate variables
    • collect genuine results
    • materials required
    • students work at their own pace

    Students registering to access simulations only will need to specify the subject and level required.
