Information About Chris - Keighley tutor - (5 reviews)
This is how 2 referees rated Chris:
Friendly, enthusiastic and genuinely interested in helping students not only get good grades but develop a passion for the subject, I am available for home visits to help all age groups and abilities.
I am an experienced private tutor and a full time Physics teacher - I am yet to find a student I wasn't able to help!
I hold a BEng in Civil Engineering from Loughborough University, as well as Maths, Physics and Biology A Levels, and am very familiar with AQA, Edexcel and OCR exam boards and their styles. I cover most of the Leeds and Bradford area and am very flexible with tutoring hours - I'm happy to come over when it is convenient for you.
On a personal note, I love my sport and I'm a voracious reader - I'm also a keen quizzer, having appeared on "University Challenge"!
Having been a tutor for the past few years, and being a full time science teacher I have a good range of experience teaching all ability levels, helping students markedly improve their grades in Physics, Maths and Biology at GCSE and A Level.
I have been a teacher since September 2015, routinely being judged as 'outstanding' and with many success stories, helping students in school and outside of school as a tutor.
I hold a current DBS certificate and can provide references on request.
I believe that there is no "one size fits all" approach to tutoring. My experience has taught me that the most effective way of teaching is by working with the student to find out their personal approach to learning, and identify any problem areas within the subject.
After an initial consultation and a first informal lesson to ensure that I understand the areas that need improvement, I will create structured lesson plans to ensure the time is used efficiently. The lessons usually involve discussion around a topic, examples done together and exam questions to ensure the student knows the topic thoroughly - The aim is to make the lesson enjoyable as well as practical!
I am very friendly, calm, and love working with students to make sure they get the most out of their tutoring experience!
If you have any questions regarding the service I provide, please don't hesitate to get in touch - I respond to all enquiries.

Chris was prompt and communicative and was able to provide all relevant documentation e.g. DBS check certificate for us to see.
We would certainly recommend Chris and use his services again in the future.
Thank you Chris.
I work full-time and having tutorials with Chris have saved me time and made me more efficient. I feel much more confident to take my GCSEs after having lessons with him.
