KS3 Science – Earth structure
These live and interactive lessons are based on the KS3 Science National Curriculum, they will help students prepare for GCSE Chemistry or other similar qualifications.
The lessons are typically suited to students aged approximately 10-14 years of age. Small groups (capped at 10) ensure students get the opportunity to interact with the tutor and have their questions answered.
Lessons can be taken as a whole topic (recommended) or individually, if preferred, as they are written to make sense on a lesson by lesson basis.
