My name is Chris , and I am a highly experienced tutor of Maths, English and 11+ entrance tuitions for selective schools, for the past 16 years.
I teach Maths at Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 ,Key Stage 3 and GCSE level.
I also teach English at Key Stage 1. Key Stage 2 Key Stage 3 and GCSE level (English Language only).
I am also a highly successful 11+ Tutor, and I have a 90% success rate at helping students get into Grammar Schools and Private Schools ((this is 9 times higher than the average of 10% of students who sit an 11+ exam, and then get into their selective school).
In addition to this, I am experienced at preparing Adult students for the Qts Numeracy & Literacy Tests and i have a 100% success rate with this (4 out of 4 in Numeracy have passed, and 2 out of 2 in Literacy). I also am experienced preparing students for other Numeracy & Literacy Tests. I live in Melksham, Wiltshire.
I have been tutoring for 16 years, and have 36 written references from parents and I also have a Maths degree.
I have for much of those 16 years worked as a full-time tutor, and I use National Curriculum Resources for all my tuitions.
During my 16 years as a tutor, I have taught students of all ages and abilities, and have literally taught 1000's of lessons- at times teaching as many as 29 hours of tuition in a week. I have taught every type of student from those with Learning Disabilities to the Gifted & Talented.
I am constantly recommended by parents to other parents, and I have a proven track record of improving students' grades. I also have resources and past papers , for 11+ 13+, SATS (English & Maths) and GCSE Maths.
I am a friendly person by nature , and I take this into my tuitions. I like to make my students feel at ease in the lessons , and that they have a tutor that they feel they can ask as many questions as they like.I also believe in offering plenty of praise and encouragement to my students.
I follow the National Curriculum programme in my tutoring, to cover all aspects of the syllabus.However, even if I have prepared a certain topic for a lesson, if the student then asks me to look over in a different topic, or wants me to help them with some school homework, then I am always flexible to do just that. I also never move on to a new topic with a student, until I am happy that they have fully understood what I have been teaching. My method of teaching is to teach a topic, and then set the student plenty of practice examples , to make sure they fully understand the topic.
