Methodology

**A comprehensive online tuition service can also be provided in addition to face-to-face tuition – please see full details below**

Friendly, approachable and experienced Oxford educated teacher offering GCSE/A level tuition in Science and Mathematics. At present, I am teaching Chemistry at a top independent North London school.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I offer tuition in Chemistry up to AS/A2 level, Maths and Science up to GCSE. I also provide numeracy and literacy tuition for those sitting Armed Forces' exams, aircraft/helicopter pilot tests and any other professional/higher education exams. Furthermore, tuition is provided for learners who will be sitting medical entrance exams e.g. BMAT and GAMSAT.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Masters in Chemistry (MChem, Hons) from Oxford University (Worcester College 2001 - 2005).
QTS (Qualified Teacher Status) postgraduate programme, Buckingham University.

- How much do you charge?

Rates: GCSE and A level: £50 per hour.

Undergraduate, BMAT and GAMSAT: £50 per hour.

Please see my website for more details.

- Where do you teach?

I cover Central London and Greater London, but do work further afield - please get in touch. What is more, I work with a number of international students around the world e.g. China and Hong Kong, via online tuition.

Tuition usually takes place at the client's home, although I am flexible in regard to the time and location of the lessons.

Full online tuition services are provided utilising whatever platform you wish – whether it be Zoom, Skype or Microsoft Teams. Online lessons are streamed in full HD using professional audio, visual and lighting equipment (not a laptop webcam and inbuilt microphone), ensuring your experience is as close as possible to in-person tuition. Furthermore, I utilise a HD overhead viewer and whiteboard, so you can take notes during the lesson and we can discuss problems in real-time. Lastly, practice questions, mark schemes and notes can be sent over instantly during the lesson.

I have an extensive list of references from previously satisfied clients for your perusal- please get in touch and see my personal website for more information.

- When are you available?

Daytime, evenings and weekends for face-to-face tuition, depending on my school timetable. Online tuition can take place at the tutee's convenience.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Usually between 12 - 18 years old, although I do teach a number of mature learners studying part time for engineering and science degrees, or applying to medical school.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE, A level, BMAT and GAMSAT.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

With over a decade's worth of tuition experience, extensive knowledge of all the examination boards and a teaching position at an elite, independent co-educational school, I believe I am well placed to help you with your tuition needs. My aim is to get the very best out of tutees using a variety of teaching methods with a strong emphasis on exam technique. I have helped tutees of all ages and abilities on a one-to-one basis as well as within small groups. I am flexible and adaptable in my approach to teaching, and endeavour to create a learning environment in which the tutee can thrive. Questions from tutees are encouraged as much as possible; I believe this is absolutely essential if a solid understanding of a topic is to be achieved. Subjects are taught according to exact syllabus requirements. Knowledge is tested through the setting of regular homework and past paper questions. Marking and feedback to tutees is prompt.

Experience

- What kind of experience do you have?

Professional, amiable Oxford educated teacher working at one of the best schools in London. GCSE/A level Maths and Science tuition. Available evenings and weekends.

I am a friendly, approachable Oxford educated tutor with over 12 years tutoring experience, comprising a mix of one-to-one tuition, teaching within small groups as well as larger classroom environments. I have extensive knowledge of all the major examination boards with particular expertise in the OCR, Edexcel, WJEC, CIE and AQA syllabuses.

I am currently teaching Chemistry and Lower Science at a top independent North London School, having previously taught both Chemistry and Mathematics at City of London School for Girls. I have experience teaching pupils affected with learning difficulties such as ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia.

Additionally, I offer tuition for the BMAT and GAMSAT medical entrance exams required by certain medical schools in the UK, so can assist with the preparation for the science sections in these niche, difficult tests. I have helped numerous students of college age as well as mature students go on to medical school over the past decade.

Tuition can also be provided for those sitting numeracy and literacy exams required for entrance to the armed forces.

Undergraduate tuition is offered to those students studying for degrees that incorporate Chemistry modules e.g. Business and Chemistry, foundation courses etc.

I cover Central London and Greater London, but do work further afield - please get in touch. What is more, I work with a number of international students around the world e.g. China and Hong Kong, via online tuition.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have a recent enhanced DBS (CRB) check which is available for your perusal. This is a statutory requirement for all teachers working at a school.

- Where and with whom did you train?

Worcester College and Christ Church College, Oxford University; Buckingham University (postgraduate QTS status).

- Tell me about some of your current students.

Current client base is a diverse mix of age and abilities. The majority of my students are studying for their GCSEs and A levels, however a number are younger, Key Stage 3 learners, or mature students studying for professional exams or part time degrees. A number of my students are applying to medical school.

I have an extensive list of references for your perusal.

Chris provided tuition to my daughter who was undertaking her AS level in Chemistry. Chris was fantastic and I recommend him without any reservation. He is patient, supportive and very knowledgeable. He helped my daughter more fully understand her subject and improved her confidence considerably

Dawn

My daughter was due to take her GCSE Maths in Autumn 2010 and I was becoming increasingly concerned about her lack of confidence in the subject. I contacted Chris following several recommendations from work colleagues and it was one of the best things I ever did. Over the very short period of barely 8 weeks, he worked with my daughter steadily building her confidence with tremendous patience and individually tailored work. She achieved a Grade A in higher tier GCSE (school expected a grade B).

After sitting numerous A-Level Chemistry exams and only achieving E grades, I called Chris for one to one tuition. His easy-going attitude and wealth of knowledge helped me gain a completely new insight into the subject. What helped me most, is Chris' suggestion of a new revision technique which I followed religiously. After picking up my A-level results and discovering I'd achieved grade A in Chemistry overall, I have nothing but praise for Chris and I will be forever grateful for all his help.

Chris tutored my son Danny during his A level years. Chris was completely reliable, knew the syllabus and was an excellent teacher. Danny both liked him very much and respected him. I am most grateful to Chris for his commitment to us.

J
Julie

My daughter was struggling in Maths GCSE obtaining D's and E's. After just 12 lessons with Chris she was a B grade student and after a further 6 lessons was achieving A grade, an amazing turn around at a subject that was not liked. Chris was professional and courteous at all times and tailored my daughter's lessons to her requirements. Both myself, and my daughter, thank him wholeheartedly for his valued assistance and I would definitely contact him again should the need arise.

D
Daniel

Chris' method of teaching is easy to understand and has given me confidence in my ability to study Chemistry. He had all the past papers and notes that I needed in preparation for my exams, and it payed off - I had an A in CH1 and CH2! Thank you for everything and I hope to have you again next year.

Stephen

Chris began working with my son Ashley following a fragmented teaching year at AS level which led to a disappointing Chemistry result. Chris was able to identify quickly the gaps in his knowledge and develop an effective learning framework. The final result moving from an E at AS level to a B at A level speaks for itself.

Arlene

My daughter sat her GCSEs in 2008 and was very worried about Maths as she could not understand topics in the way she was being taught at school. Chris worked wonders with her, boosting her confidence and explaining concepts with patience and in an easy to understand way. She sat the intermediate paper and got a grade B, the highest possible for this paper. Very happy to recommend Chris to anyone. He is now tutoring her for A-Level Chemistry.

S
Stewart

My daughter was struggling in school with Maths so with Chris' expert tuition she not only understands Maths now, but has moved up a set and is sitting her GCSE exam 6 months early! Chris is an excellent tutor and has helped my daughter a lot, she is now very confident and is relishing her maths GCSE in November! He's very prompt, reliable and professional. I can recommend him to anyone for Maths or Science! Thank you Chris you're a star!

L
Lewis

I found Science subjects difficult during my GCSE years, therefore I took up Chris as a tutor. Reflecting back on my GCSE results I am thoroughly pleased with them. I continued to have Chris through my college years as I found his guidance and teaching styles effective. Without Chris I feel my grades wouldn't have been as high as what they were and I would have struggled to receive an offer from Cardiff University. Chris is very approachable and easy to talk to, I strongly recommend Chris to anyone.
