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.
- 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 10 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 and AQA syllabuses.
I am currently teaching Chemistry at a top independent North London school, having previously taught both Chemistry and Maths at City of London School for Girls. Earlier experience included working as a Mathematics and Science teacher on the government-funded 'Life Long Learning' Scheme, where certain pupils were affected with learning disabilities such as ADHD, dyslexia and dyspraxia.
Additionally, I have passed the GAMSAT medical entrance exam required for certain medical schools within the UK, so can assist with the preparation required for this difficult, niche test- I have helped a number of mature learners go on to medical school.
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 zones 1 - 3, but do work further afield.
- 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.

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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
