We are seeking to appoint a skilled and enthusiastic teacher for September 2018 or sooner. Candidates should be graduates in Chemistry with a proven record of A-level and GCSE teaching success.

The College

Cambridge Tutors College is a leading international sixth form college, founded in Warlingham, Surrey in 1958 and which now occupies a pleasant park side location in South Croydon.  Approximately 80% of the 110 students come from overseas countries including China, Latvia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Russia, Singapore and Vietnam.  The college has built up a strong reputation for excellence in teaching all subjects with particular emphasis on the sciences, mathematics and economics.  60% of students go on to a Russell Group university. This year we have five offers to Oxbridge. 

The Chemistry Department 

Chemistry is a very popular option with students currently taking A-level and GCSE.  They are taught in groups with a maximum of nine students, but the College’s average class size is six.

The A-level course attracts students who are combining it with Biology, Physics or Mathematics in order to pursue a course in Medical Sciences.  Others seek to gain entry onto an Engineering degree course and a few may combine Chemistry with Arts or Social Science subjects.

The students take the Edexcel examination for A Level and follow the Cambridge International Examination board for IGCSE.
