I am a fully qualified teacher of Physics, Chemistry and Maths to A level, and physics, Chemistry, Biology and Maths to GCSE. I have a current Enhanced DBS. I am already tutoring students in A level chemistry who were stunned by last years hard AQA AS GCSE. I have a wealth of experience in industry as well as teaching, and so can bring a reality to the subjects. My students seem very happy with me, and word of mouth from happy clients has increased the number of students I support dramatically over the last few weeks. I have clients returning from last academic year, and families who have asked me to tutor one child have soon asked me to tutor their siblings.
Availability: Evenings only.
Willing to travel: 5 miles
Experience: I have worked for many large US corporations, and have taught in both State and Private school to A-Level standard. I have a degree in Physics and Electronics, a degree in Marketing and a Degree in education (PGCE). I have worked as a full time Maths teacher, as well as a full time science teacher. Each Easter I teach a full weeks science revision course at a prestigious school in Clifton. I have very positive feedback from my students, one of whom last year became a client.

review(s) for Chris.
My daughter found Chris to be very helpful and provided useful support and guidance in the GCSE science subjects leading up to the exams.
Chris is a great tutor. Two of my boys have benefitted from his professional, patient and able help and I would not hesitate to recommend him.
Chris is excellent. Taking time to breakdown complex subjects into manageable pieces. My daughters confidence is building all the time and she looks forward to his tutor sessions
Chris is tutoring my son for A level maths. He is very friendly and approachable and I have found Chris easy to contact. Chris has a good way of explaining topics that my son struggled to understand at school so that he is clear with them now. Chris has done lessons at our house and online -both have worked extremely well and I highly recommend Chris as a tutor.
Chris was invaluable for my daughter in helping her through the first year of A level Maths - C1, C2 and M1. He gave her vital confidence by helping her with homework throughout the school year and explaining new topics in a way she understood. Then in the run up to the exams he went through past papers with her, explaining specific questions and also types of questions that come up every year.
In September her first grade of the year was a U and on results day in August she achieved a B which her teachers said was very unlikely at the beginning of the year. This shows what a brilliant tutor Chris is.
Site rating - Chris came to our home
Tutor rating - we`ve now completed the first group of tutorials because at the beginning my son`s teacher thought my son was working at grade C but had a potential for grade A in Maths. Now, after one term of tutorials my son`s teacher now thinks he`s working at grade A. You can`t ask for more than that!
Great tutor, with a cheerful personality and a lot of experience. A grade-saver!
My daughter moved to higher GCSE from foundation and needed some catch up sessions - not only has she caught up - she is now top of her new set and got an A* in her last exam. In her words Chris has helped her so much on new and quicker ways to look at things and to have confidence in her approach and calmness under pressure. We would thoroughly recommend Chris 5*.
A fantastic site, to find equally great tutors!
Quite simply, Chris is lovely. My son and I were slightly apprehensive about having a tutor. However, from the moment Chris walked into out home he put us both at ease. Chris has a calm, friendly and approacable manner. My son told me he looks forward to his meetings with Chris because "he just gets it" - high praise from a 15 year old! It is slightly too early to know how the sessions with Chris are influencing my sons grades, but I can see that my son is feeling much more confident and subsequently more relaxed, which makes me a very happy parent!
Chris delivers his tutorials to my son at our house, which proves very convenient. Chris has an affable, relaxed manner and a flexible approach which my son appreciates and responds to well.
Chris, was an excellent tutor and I would have no reservations recommending him to anyone.
We have had Chris for a few months now and Max is making very good progress.
The best teacher, its such a shame he`s so far away! Chris has helped me immensely with my physics online, he keeps the lessons interesting and explains things well, thank you so much. Highly recommended.
We only had Chris for a few sessions due to change of circumstance but my son
found him very helpful and approachable.
My daughter is is being tutored for GCSE Maths. He is proving to be very helpful. He is very approachable and friendly. He explains the subject in detail and helps to understand the questions by talking them through with the student.the different points. Recommended
Chris helped My daughter finish her Algebra course and complete her American high school diploma. She couldn`t have done it without him! He was very helpful.
Mr. Followell is a top quality tutor. In September, my son Edward was achieving unsatisfactory grades, sometimes as low as a C or even a U however this all changed once we chose Chris to be his tutor. By the time of his science exams in June, he had got Edward`s grades up to constant "A"s. Will definitely be using this year for the rest of his exams!
Chris is a fantastic tutor who has made a massive difference to my mathematics studying! Without him I would not have the understanding or the ability that I do now. He is flexible with times and a very happy and friendly person, I would strongly recommend him!

I`ve had Chris as my tutor for a while now and he`s really allowed me to understand the physics behind my course better which has helped a lot with AS Physics, especially Unit 2.
