Information about Krissie

If you need Science, Maths, History or Politics help I am the tutor for you.

I have eight years experience tutoring students from toddlers to adult learners. I teach Maths, Chemistry, Biology and Physics up to GCSE as well as A-Level History and Politics. I also teach adult learners re-siting exams for professional qualifications including equivalency tests and functional skills.

I tutor students from the following schools allowing me to tailor my sessions to the students more effectively: Harris Academy (Rainham and Chafford), Campion, Coopers, Hall Mead, Ockendon, William Edwards, Ormiston Academy, Havering College, Drapers, Palmer`s, Westcliff Grammar School, Sacred Heart, Havering Sixth Form and Gaynes. If your school is not on this list do not worry as I cover most exam boards and always looking for a new challenge!

I am often employed to teach students more than one subject which I have found works very well as the student only has to adapt to one tutoring style rather than several and I can pick up on general working habits that are not subject specific. I believe in creating an atmosphere where students are not afraid to be wrong and ask questions. Moreover I personalise each session with revision packs, subject specific worksheets and document each session so you can see what we have covered and when. I make home visits but I also teach small groups in schools if and when required. I am also experienced with students with specific learning difficulties acting as a mentor at university level.

I have 3 degrees in History from the University of London: a first class bachelors degree with honours, a masters (with distinction) in Modern History and a MPhil. Although my degrees are focused on History I have A grade A-levels in Biology, Chemistry and Politics as well as A in As Physics. In addition I am a qualified higher education teacher. I have also taught several modules at both under and postgraduate level at Royal Holloway, University of London and originally began tutoring to supplement my studies but is now my full time job.

More importantly I am a friendly, warm, approachable person with a love for working with young people. I strongly believe in the benefits of working one-to-one with students to get the best out of them and aim to foster a good working relationship. I love sports and current affairs something I often bring into my sessions to help the students relate to the topics at hand and give them a more rounded education.

I bring all my own worksheets/past papers so all you need is a pen and a willingness to learn. I also give my students free access to all my resources online so they can access work when they need it not just when I am free.

I have the most recent GCSE and A-Level results for my students available on request. I can also provide references if required.

Please do feel free to contact me with any queries or questions.

Availability: I am very busy at the moment but always happy to hear from new students. I will endeavour to find a space for you.

If you are an A-Level student I can also teach you in your free lessons during the day rather than waiting until the evening. I have done this with several students, the most recent students have just got their results and are off to Oxford, Birmingham, LSE and Kent. Last year I had students go to Essex, Kent, Swansea, Portsmouth and RHUL.

David (Mr)

We used Krissie to help my daughter prepare for her Biology, Chemistry and Physics GCSE exams using her 1-2 hrs every week for approximately 5-6 months.

Based upon our experiences we would not recommend Krissie, because we feel that she did not put the student as priority or prepare my daughter well enough for the exams. There was little or no feedback for parents and there were also times when she cancelled lessons at short notice, as well as, going on holiday for 2 weeks, just before exams.

This highlights the issues we experienced, whilst we understand that tutoring is a full time job for her, we never felt that she really cared about our daughter or tried to help her maximise her potential, which is something that we would expect from a tutor.

Krissie is teaching my daughter Politics and has been very engaging with my daughter so far. She has bonded really quickly and is so personable.

Donna (Mrs)

I am not so happy being chased continuously by tutor hunt for feedback when I have already submitted feedback but we are very pleased with Krissie so far. Krissie has only been tutoring our daughter for a couple of months but my daughter feels very comfortable with her and her confidence in maths is really starting to grow.

After only 4 lessons my son has really benefited from Krissie`s expertise. Krissie works in a concise manner ensuring that each session focuses on exactly what is needed to succeed in an exam situation she sets relevant homework and provides helpful, pertinent feedback. Krissie has also provided excellent advice on revision techniques and exam strategies.

Krissie has just started tutoring our 14 year old daughter. I am already impressed by Krissies calm attitude and her ability to relate to my daughter both socially and as she was teaching her. Would definitely recommend Krissie for any other parents looking to have their teenager tutored.
