Information About Chris - Watford tutor - (10 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Chris:
I gained a First Class Honours degree in History at university and I am the Head of History at an academically selective independent school. The topics I am particularly familiar with are as follows: the History National Curriculum, Germany 1871-1945, Twentieth Century International Relations, The Russian Revolution, USA 1850-2009, The First World War, The Second World War, Vietnam, The German Reformation 1517-1555, The European Witchcraze 1580-1650, Ireland 1798-1922, USA 1865-2009. In addition, I have helped several tutees be awarded places at their first choice secondary school at 11+ and 13+ and am familiar with entrance examinations for Merchant Taylors', Haberdashers' and John Lyon, to name a few. For Sixth Form students, I am happy to assist with Oxbridge entrance requirements, for example, the History Aptitude Test, as well as help to construct UCAS personal statements.
I have taught in co-educational state schools and independent schools for eleven years. I have been Head of History for eight years and the IGCSE and A Level results achieved by my students have been consistently outstanding. I attend professional development courses on an on-going basis and I am aware of all changes to education and know about the requirements of a wide range of examination boards.
Tutoring sessions will be directed by the tutee, who has thought about the areas in which they need additional help. If the requirement is for me to help to make certain topic based concepts clearer for the student, then I am happy to assist in this way. If the need is for me to help the pupil to apply knowledge to a certain type of question or practise a key subject skill, I will ensure that I help the tutee to improve in this area as well. I utilise past papers frequently to ensure that application of knowledge is accurate and that students in all years make progress.

Furthermore he asked me whether I wanted my money back when I said yes he replied ' I'll see what I can do! Then I tried to reply back to him he blocked any further messages getting to him!
So overall I definitely would not recommend this tutor!!
experienced and easy to deal with.
I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a history tutor
Sorry you're disappointed. I taught your daughter on April 4th then provisionally agreed April 15th but as I subsequently explained, I had family commitments. I suggested other dates, none of which worked for you or me. I do not recall further messages from you about organising lessons since then so find 2\\5 quite harsh. My other (approximately) 20 tutees since I started have all been much more satisfied as I see them on a weekly basis a long time before final exams so can help them a lot with content and technique.
specialist in everything German
