The benefits of studying Cambridge IGCSE Chemistry

Our Cambridge IGCSE Chemistry homeschooling course will help your child to understand the world around them. Why do leaves change colour in the autumn? Why are plants green? How is cheese made? What is in soap and how does it clean?

Chemistry is everywhere! It’s in the food you eat, the clothes you wear, the water you drink, medicines, air, cleaners… you name it. Chemistry is sometimes called the “central science” because it connects other sciences to each other, such as biology, physics, geology and environmental science.

Meet our IGCSE Chemistry Tutors


I was mainly homeschooled in primary school and had recently moved to Korea but had yet to learn the language. Therefore, home study was the best and most convenient choice for me. The initial study advice I received was clear, informative and easy to understand. My tutors were more than helpful and were quick to answer any of my questions and grade my assignments. They gave me their observation on my strengths and weaknesses on each subject. The course materials provided were fairly easy to understand and were more than enough to cover all the key points of the syllabus. My Student Progress Manager was excellent in not only guiding me but keeping me up to date on events and other stuff as well.
