Chemistry mastery is a skill that will keep you in high demand.

Physical science (chemistry, physics and biology) and maths are the fundamental backbones of so much of our understanding of our world. Chemistry is no exception, with many people choosing the science branch all the way through year 10 at school, to VCE, and as a university student, raising the demand for tutor jobs in the field. There are plenty of specialist ways to use these skills which a tutor can show you, all across Melbourne and Australia. These can be enhanced with concurrent use maths and biology skills, and lead to a lab, research, or engineering-based job, or even something new, with some projects lasting years.


Being a student of chemistry, as it is a broad study that has contact with other fields of science, can also help people observe many different parts of the world that we live in, and a tutor can help you understand the composition of atoms and molecules. Chemistry occupies a position between physics and biology, so you can work in any English speaking country. There are plenty of tutors at Superprof who are qualified and available to help new or experienced students in whatever year of study they currently find themselves.

What's the use of studying Chemistry?

Tutoring might be in relation to a chemical need that you're having in relation to your studies in VCE or university, with a view of getting a job in the field later. Getting in contact with a new tutor, when studying chemistry at school or university is highly practical and will often make you highly in demand for jobs later in life. In addition to this, you can work out new methods for understanding how the chemical world really works, and use maths problem-solving skills that would be applicable to any university study later on.


Engineering is also a booming field, and to study this at university, there is the prerequisite of having studied physics, chemistry, and maths methods in high school years, so getting tutoring on the subject early on will help you know if you want to pursue a job in the field. A tutor can also show you that there's also the longterm benefit if the career interests you early on because jobs can have a duration of many years. Another similarly related benefit is the wide range of jobs you will have access to through chemistry - beyond chemical engineering, there are Melbourne, Victoria, and federal government, medical, as well as technology roles all available for people across Australia that your tutor can help you access even if you're only in VCE.

Why would you need a Chemistry tutor?

The reasons for tutoring obviously depend on the person, but seeing as it's not a subject in plain English, it's understandable that it's more likely you'd contact a tutor to help your chemical understanding if you're a new student, or in your final years of school, VCE, or university, for them to help you understand tricky concepts you might come across. However, there may be adults and young professionals, with a year of experience in adjacent fields like maths and biology, who have to work on a particular project which requires a different skill set than their own.


These students could contact chemistry tutors to be shown the ropes to be able to deliver more efficiently on their project. Some specific reasons for wanting a physics tutor include: being in VCE and deciding you are going to be an engineer and need to get your skill set up now before you enter university; being a year 10 student who is considering doing chemistry and maths methods at VCE but needs help getting their skills up to scratch; being a university student enrolled in a science degree that takes a generalist approach to study, but who don't have a strong chemistry background; or alternatively, as mentioned, a professional conducting research within their own field, like biology, whose new project may intersect with chemistry in some way, thus needing a qualified professional to explain concepts to them in order to interpret their own research data effectively.

Different branches of Chemistry

Like all science, chemistry has many different facets that come into contact with one another, so people could choose to become a specialist in any of them. Different Superprof tutors specialise and perhaps even have jobs in these fields. Here, we give you a bit of a rundown of some of the different kinds of chemistry that are available and what their outcomes for studies and job prospects in the years after study might be, and what tutor to look for to help to depend on your experience. Whether you're a brand new student, in VCE or university across Melbourne, there's a tutor for you.


Organic Chemistry: Students interested in this would explore the interaction and structure of molecules and atoms, so tutoring would likely focus on model based learning. Job prospects in the future would involve medicine production, food science, or forensic analytics.


Analytical Chemistry: A student in this would seek help from a tutor to understand how to identify the chemical makeup of something and how prevalent certain molecules are. A career in this branch of science would be in academic, government, or private sector research, focussing on quality control, toxicology, or drug formulation.


Biochemistry: school, VCE or university students needing tutors for this would do so to help their understanding of the chemical principles underlying basic biological systems. This one would require more plain English in reports than the others, as the jobs involved would be more public facing, such as medicinal chemist, pharmacologist, or medical science liaison.
