Chris

Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics

Chris' biography:

Chris studied at Pilgrim grammar school where he blossomed in the sciences and maths, finishing with good grades at both O level and A level (as they then were). He went on to study Electronic Engineering with Physics at University.

From University Chris went directly into industry, to discover that this is where you learn the most. Working for high-tech industry leaders such as Texas Instruments and Inmos, Chris was able to not only do a good job but also keep up with the changes in Physics that were ongoing, helping make computer chips smaller and more powerful. As his business career developed Chris also took and earned qualifications in sales and a degree in Marketing.

After 32 years in Industry Chris returned to University to gain a third degree, this time a PGCE in Physics and Maths. After qualifying Chris branched out into tuition.

Chris is a relaxed and confident tutor. He will work with you to get the best results. Wrong answers are not the issue here, correct questions are the focus. He will work with you, offering different approaches to problems until the ‘light bulb’ moment when the student understands the question or the principle. Lessons on specific topics can easily be set at the student's/ parent's request, but the best approach is to take each question as it comes from the student and pursue any and all misconceptions the student has developed in a subject and bring it around so as they have a fuller and deeper understanding of the topic.

When he isn't tutoring, Chris enjoys reading (specifically sci-fi and Science fact), cinema, singing in a local Gospel choir and music, both listening and playing.

Chris' qualifications:

Chris qualified to teach Physics in 2012, and holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE) from University of the West of England.

Parent of student

"My son has had health issues resulting in 40% attendance at school. Chris is totally understanding of my son's energy/concentration dips and is completely flexible in his teaching approach which is supportive. I can recommend him as a tutor highly."

Mother of student studying Maths and Physics IGCSE

"It's still too soon to say how successful in terms of exam grades, however Chris has been very successful in clarifying areas of the curriculum and working with Will to identify and rectify areas of weakness. Chris has been very helpful with the tutoring as well as the scheduling of the tuition periods."
