Information about Chris

For the fourth full academic year running, during the Easter school holidays I`ll be offering a very limited number of places for an online A2 revision course. The course will run over three days and students will have the option to attend as little as one day or as many as all three. I’m offering the course on this basis because as an experienced Chemistry teacher I’m aware that students will always have strengths and weaknesses in the different branches of the Chemistry syllabus.

With the exams looming in June, the focus of this course will be exam technique and in particular the day will be planned around the advanced information given out on 7th Feb. After reviewing the content of each topic, we will spend time looking at some of the trickiest questions associated with that topic.

I plan to cover all content of the A level syllabus. Following each day students will be sent the notes for each session and also provided with a link which will enable them to access a wealth of question-based resources. I will also record the sessions and provide students with the recordings.

DAY 1- Physical Chemistry (with required practical’s)
DAY 2- Inorganic and analytical techniques (with required practical’s)
DAY 3- Organic Chemistry (with required practical’s)

The course will take place online in a zoom meeting room. Students will be involved in each session, contributing by sharing their answers and asking any question they feel they want to ask.

Courses will run between 8:30-16:30 (6h45 teaching time)
Day 1 - 10thApril 2022
Day 2 - 12th April 2022
Day 3 - 14th April 2022

My daughter had Chris as a tutor for about 10 months from the end of lower 6th until now as A levels have been cancelled. In that time she progressed massively and consistently out performed expectations with the support of Chris. He was patient, very clear in his teaching, explained everything clearly and had a fantastic approach to teaching. Would recommend whole heartedly.

Ashfaq (Mr)

Chris`s teaching is focused on his student needs. Before the lesson, he contacted us and my daughter requested him to focus on exam techniques for specific topics which he taught expertly. He guided my daughter excellently on how to maximise marks on each question. Highly recommended tutor! DR Ahmed

Suzan (Dr)

My son has already had a few lessons with Chris, who seems to be knowledgeable in the subject of Chemistry. He also states that Chris has already helped him in understanding how to answer exam questions and pointed out his weak areas, which Chris is intending to concentrate on to help him improve his grades. I think that Chris`s approach to teaching is very useful and will make a difference in my sons End of Year exams.

Margit (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

Chris is an outstanding tutor and you do get what you pay for. My daughter was struggling with her Chemistry A level and was heading towards a D grade. She had a handful of lessons and completed the Easter revision course with Chris. I tried to create a scientific measure for the results. Before the Easter revision course she felt she had a very good understanding(VGU)of 41 topics, partial understanding(PU)of 53 topics and little understanding(LU)of 28 topics. After the Easter revision course this improved to (VGU 95)(PU 15)(LU 13). She got a B grade at A level. I believe if she had started earlier, with a little more time she would have easily got the A. From our perspective Chris is a top tutor, he was able to quickly identify and then target what my daughter needed to know. She knew instantly the first time they met that he was an amazing teacher. You will be lucky if you find him available.

My son attended the Ester A-level revision group. 4 full days of exam support, practice papers etc. My son found this really excellent, Chris to be an approachable friendly tutor.

Lotte (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

My son thinks Chris is great. As I don`t attend the lessons myself - I rely on my son`s feedback and he says Chris helps him to work out the problems for himself - it`s just right for him. He is using Chris more than expected to help him understand the subject, as Chris is very good at explaining. The online tuition format works great too - makes it easy to communicate between student and tutor .... I just wish I could book a bunch of lessons in fortnightly slots (I think you can only do weekly).

I was looking for someone to help my daughter further her understanding of the complex subject matter in Chemistry.

Chris has very good understanding of his subject and been very helpful at explaining these concepts to her in a clear concise manner. HE uses past paper questions questions and goes through the marking scheme which my daughter finds very useful.

He is always punctual and very friendly which is real bonus.

Chris was an inspirational tutor for my daughter. She got a D in her mock exam in chemistry and within weeks Kate was working at an A which is what she achieved. She loved his style of teaching and felt he explained things that she`d previously not understood! We would recommend him unreservedly!

Sharon (Miss)

5/5 Rating

We have previously used tutors for my daughter but I can honestly say that they have never had as much of a positive impact on my daughter and her understanding of complex A Level chemistry. She is finally understanding what is being taught and looks forward to the sessions as Chris has made this interesting engaging and understandable - meaning that she is excelling in the topic :). My daughters words `I wish he was a teacher at the 6th form`. Cant thank you enough, very pleased
