Learning Chemistry Online

Chemistry is the third subject many students needed tutoring for in the UK. This is after mathematics and English language. 

Hence, as their exams approach, many students begin certain activities in earnest. Such as studying past papers and attending A level chemistry revision courses. Or GCSE chemistry revision courses as the case may be. 

Due to the pandemic, the demand for online tuition has tremendously increased. With emphasis on social distancing, online tutoring provided a haven for most students. This led to an increase in the demand for online chemistry tutors as well as tutoring agencies.

What is Online Chemistry Tuition?

Online chemistry tuition simply involves teaching chemistry in a virtual or online setting. In this setting, the tutor and the student are not in the same physical location. 

They are, however, connected by the internet and certain platforms. This is unlike traditional tutoring where tutor and student are in the same location.

How Online Chemistry Tuition Works

1.   Computer and Wi-fi

Thanks to the advancement in technology, online A Level chemistry tuition has been made easier. Students and tutor only need to agree on a particular time for their online class.

With a computer and stable network, a full session online chemistry class can ensue. This, however, is possible in conjunction with some other programs as shown below.

2.   Webcam and Microphone

Most online chemistry tutors make use of a webcam and microphone. This is because they enhance communication in an online chemistry class.

Students are better engaged when they can see and hear the online GCSE chemistry tutor. With the microphone and webcam in use, a visual and audio connection is established. This makes online face to face interaction possible.

3.   Platforms

As the demand for online tutoring increased, more online tutoring websites were designed. With the collaborative tools of these platforms, online chemistry tuition is a lot easier.

Also, through these platforms, students can attend their A level and GCSE chemistry revision courses. Some example of these platforms includes Zoom, Bitpaper, Bramble.

4.   Whiteboards and Screen sharing

Most platforms for online chemistry tuition have online whiteboard features. These features make it easy for tutors and students to make annotations.

In the same vein, both students and tutors can use the screen sharing feature to share their screen. This makes it possible for both tutor and student to be on the same page all through the class.

5.   Recording

This could be one of the biggest highlights of online chemistry tuition. Most platforms have a recording feature that allows students to record class sessions.

With this feature, students now rarely miss out on any part of the online class. While preparing for their exams, they can review these recordings for better understanding.


Chemistry as a subject is indeed a hands-on experience. Before now, students need to go to the laboratory for their practical activities. However, the pandemic has shifted the spotlight to online tutoring.

Hence, it is only fair for chemistry to join this boat. With very skilled online chemistry tutors, this gap is being bridged every day.
