IB Chemistry

IB Chemistry is a fundamental discipline that accounts for life at a molecular level. IB Chemistry contains an abundant number of abstract concepts which necessitates significant time and effort commitment both from tutors and students. IB Chemistry is a practical subject that is also an important branch of experimental science. It is based on the investigation of a compound’s structure, composition, molecular arrangement, chemical and physical properties, as well as the interaction of one compound with other elements and compounds. The IB chemistry course encourages students to conduct various experiments to learn a variety of practical investigations.

The IB Chemistry syllabus consists of topics divided into 11 sections:

  1. Stoichiometric Relationships
  2. Atomic Structure
  3. Periodicity
  4. Chemical Bonding and Structure
  5. Energetics/Thermochemistry
  6. Chemical Kinetics
  7. Equilibrium
  8. Acids and Bases
  9. Redox Processes
  10. Organic Chemistry
  11. Measurement and Data Processing

Guneet Banga


Degree in Information Technology

Subject Specialties:


Upgrading yourself every day and learning from your experiences with your students is what Guneet believes to be the only way to be successful as an online tutor. By helping students gain knowledge and in that way if a subject like Math, which is something that many students find frustrating, becomes a subject that they like, then you are a satisfied and dedicated teacher.

Gunneet considers dealing with mediocre children and working with them to scale up to be more satisfying than getting the cream of students to move from a 96% to 98% or 100%. This is where the potential and skill of a great teacher stands out from the crowd. 


Nidhi Tyagi


Post graduate in Chemistry
Pursuing her Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry

Subject Specialties:


Nidhi, a post graduate in Chemistry pursuing her Phd in Physical Chemistry, didn’t begin her career as a trainer. Little did she realise that her passion would be teaching, until she attended a training program conducted by an ed-tech firm on online training and delivery. 

In her class, the student is the owner of the class and her sessions revolve around a student centric approach as against a trainer centric approach.  The more you encourage a student to ask questions, the more the student understands the subject and the more the trainer learns and experiences as well.


“Nidhi is a great tutor. She nows more than google does” – Vera | Chemistry

“Very thorough tutor. Using outside knowledge as exaplmes to ensure comprehension.” – Llyanna | Chemistry

Sandhya Devi


Graduate in Mathematics
Certified online trainer - Tutor Vista

Subject Specialties:


Sandhya didn’t find her math sessions during her school days to be encouraging and motivating and she realised that this is something that only her teacher could have given her. Thus her primary goal is to make sure that none of her students feel the way she felt during her math sessions.

Online tutoring gives her the satiaction of making a difference in the life of a student even in the farthest of locations and she does this through visually engaging diagrams. Learning math not only becomes interesting but colorful and vibrant enabling students to remember the key concepts delivered.


“Mrs. Sandhya Devi has been my tuition teacher since I was in the fifth grade. Though math is one of my favorite subjects, Mrs. S helped make it much clearer. She has gone above and beyond her normal duties and has helped me solve tough assignments, beyond normal class hours. I am now a junior in high school and can easily solve tough calculus problems as I spent the summer being tutored By Mrs. S” – BHARAT J.




Subject Specialties:


Curiosity, inquisitivity and being able to relate to physics is a quality that Satyawan had in him from a very young age. He began to believe that science can provide you with required answers but gradually understood that physics can tell you how things work. In this journey his inclination was more towards Mechanics.

He believes in relating to real time examples in his classes to ensure his sessions are not the boring monotonous ones. Satyawan says, many people believe Physics is full of math & hence a student who does not like math, does not like physics too. But he has been able to show his students that physics & math cannot be combined. Math is only a tool used in physics. If students understand this well, his fear of the subject can be eliminated.


“Great tutor,very clear explanations to questions.”

“I understand the importance of units now! Thanks!”

“I appreciate how my tutor separated the problem into easier to understand chuncks. It made me realize that i actually had a better grasp on the subject than i originally thought.”

Jaishree Soni


Post graduate in Chemistry

Subject Specialties:



Jaishree believes that online teaching has helped address multiple issues that arises in an offline set up. Personalised attention, ability of a student to freely express themselves, better networking opportunities, developing self discipline, being able to show case concepts visually to the students with the click of a button is what enhances her classroom experience.


“You did teach well i would understand the topic and you can explain the topic very easily” – kishan Pratap | Grade 12

“Good afternoon ma’am, according to me your teaching was excellent and the questions which you use to give us for were really tough but it helped us to learn the concept more properly and efficiently!!” – Niharia Rathore | Grade 12
