English Language and Literature. Business and Accounting.

I am an enthusiastic and effective teacher of English (GCSE and A-level Language and Literature) and EFL / ESOL as well as Finance, Business and Accounting (most levels). I have a degree in English literature and a Masters (distinction) in Finance and Accounting. I enjoy and am an equal specialist in English and Finance / Accounting teaching and I would be happy to help anyone needing support and lessons in either subject area. I also prepare students for 11+ exams and school admissions and give advice on UCAS applications.

I have worked in education most of my life. My most recent full time post was as Academic Director at a London Further Education College and before that I was Head of Business at the British Council in Budapest.

I enjoy teaching and have helped students of all needs and ages from professional employees needing finance (AAT, Accounting A-level) or English (IELTS / professional and business English) to students of GCSE / A-level English literature or language or 11 plus entry exams.

I understand the importance of reliability and trustworthiness to potential students booking lessons. I am registered for yearly DBS enhanced disclosure checking, and I also have qualifications in level 3 Child Protection for Designated Safeguarding Lead (2015) and advanced level 4 Child Protection Safeguarding Officer (2016).

Please let me know exactly what you need and I will do my very best to help and motivate you!

Latest review:

'Chris was a true professional. He was on time. He came prepared. His extensive knowledge, experience and polite and gentle manner, was a guiding force throughout the session. My daughter lacked confidence and was becoming despondent due to lack of clear input with regards to her personal statement.
Thanks to clear and informed input from Chris, she was able to produce a genuinely powerful personal statement that previously she was grappling to construct. Part of the success of the session was Chris's ability to draw out, and verbalise her skills in such a way that it was a clear demonstration of not only his command of the English language, but his competency in enabling his tutee to realise the range of their potential. This was further guided by the extensive experience he has had within Education and industry, which further elevated the session.'

Fantastic teacher

Chris is a great teacher. He cares, he motivates and he keeps you awake :-)
He taught me proficiency level English. I very much enjoyed his teaching style as he made it so much fun and easy, I didn't feel it was an effort. I must have learnt a lot though, as I passed my Cambridge proficiency exam with great results.
