Dr Andrew Matovu – Science

Qualified A-level Chemistry & Science Teacher with QTS


I am a fully qualified Science teacher with a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) and QTS. I have over 20 years’ experience in tutoring and teaching A- level & GCSE students at colleges and lecturing at leading Universities for undergraduate students. I taught at a grammar school for nine years and have been carrying out tutoring on a one to one basis as well as classroom teaching since I qualified.

My approach to tutoring will be tailor-made to individual student needs. I always endeavour to teach even the most complex and difficult topics of chemistry in a simplified manner. Students will be doing loads of exam-type questions and answers discussed for all questions. This enables all learners to obtain a very good grasp of the subject and to build their confidence. Which in turn motivates them towards achieving higher grades.

I tutor subjects on A-level – Chemistry, GCSE – Science subjects; Chemistry, Physics, Biology. Further, I have many years of research experience working at Universities and have many high impact research publications. I am proud of my A level Chemistry students’ performance this year having 100% passed and out of that more than 90% achieving A / A* grades. I Tutor online via zoom and in-person for students at various levels throughout the week. I tutor all major exam boards, including AQA, OCR A & B, EDEXCEL. I have been teaching and tutoring A level and GCSE students in colleges and as a private tutor on the new 2015 curriculum for England.

Professional experience 

Physical Chemist’ Environmental Scientist with over ten years experience in R&D, complex solid liquid gas thermodynamics, waste disposal management and indoor/out door air quality control.

• Proven abilities in technical, planning and supervision skills.

• Researcher in physical Chemist at the BASF AG research laboratories in Ludwigshafen/ Germany. Physical-chemical behaviour investigations; such as conductivity, density and solubility. and liquid/liquid and vapour-liquid investigations of various materials.

• Lecturer and Senior lecturer at Gottingen and Heidelberg Universities in Germany.

• Senior environmental chemist at LAYIR & KNODLER, a Hazardous waste management firm in Germany. Developed and implemented new analytical methods. Other duties included comprehensive studies and compiling of reports on contaminated land and supervision and training of technicians and chemists regularly in laboratory practice.

• Acquired in depth knowledge and skills in various monitoring and analytical techniques, such as computer interfaced GCIMS, VfIR, HPLC, AAS, (EPA-Methods), ICP maintenance and troubleshooting.

• Won a three year Post Doctoral Research Associateship awarded by the National Research Council (NRC) in Washington DC. Subsequently conducted research in indoor- outdoor air quality at the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), Human Exposure Research Branch in the Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

A field study for this project was conceived and implemented within this period. This study involved a re-evaluation of air quality monitoring and control technology, testing of new Real-time dust particle counter, and analytical methodology development in specific research areas of interest to the EPA. Research interests and published work are in Analytical Chemistry (Applied Liquid Mixture Thermodynamics and indoor air quality). Air Quality monitoring, and analysis, Pollution control.

I hope you will consider me in your search for a GCSE/A-level tutor. I look forward to hearing from you soon, and to having the opportunity of helping your son or daughter fulfil their own potential.

Tutor Enquiry

"We would like to pass on our feedback and show appreciation for Mr Hamalabi from Science Clinic Private Tutoring Ltd who worked with our daughter and improved her Chemistry & Physics skills in the run up to her GCSE exams He was only with us for a short time but the work he did in that short period of time was unbelievable. Kayleigh got A* in both subjects."

B.K. Thomas

“Thank you Science Clinic Private Tutoring Ltd for your prompt and efficient service. It was so simple, I wish we had found you sooner.”

C.H. (Colchester)

“Can't believe how quickly this has worked. I went on the Internet on 15th January and Chloe had a lesson today with Mr Hamalabi who is only 5 minutes drive away from us. We are so pleased and delighted.”

J.J. Brown

I would like you to know how delighted we have been with Mr Hamalabi who has provided home tuitions in Physics, Mathematics & Chemistry to my daughter for 3 years. She went from C grade at the end of year 9 to getting A*, A & A respectively in her GCSE.”

J.C. Paula

We are grateful to Mr Hamalabi from Science Clinic Private Tutoring Ltd for giving Tom confidence and for assisting him greatly in improving his performance to the level of getting A & A* in Biology, Chemistry & Physics.”
