Experienced, passionate Cambridge graduate

I have been working as a tutor for the past 2 years, and as well as developing a wealth of experience, have absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. I`ve always loved working with other people in whatever I do, whether its in sport, music or acting (my biggest side passion). I find it endlessly challenging and entertaining to understand and work with others` perspectives.

This has been one of the most unexpected and engaging elements of tutoring. Thinking about a familiar problem from a unique perspective always produces surprisingly (and weirdly!) brilliant responses from each student. This is fundamentally why tutoring can be such a powerful, important force in students` lives. At its core, it builds a student`s confidence and belief in their own opinion and skill, and often leads to academic independence. It offers a unique opportunity to engage with students in a tailored, non-patronising and incredibly productive way.

I can bring enthusiasm, a comfortable learning environment and a creative re-interpretation of academic material to suit the students` individual needs. Students often can`t establish what could be improved about their work, and so I have unique methods to identify these areas and challenge students to push themselves on them. I give tasks outside of lesson hours and encourage a `little and often` approach, frequently tricking them into doing work that would have initially disgusted them! I really hope I get the chance to work with you or your family member.

Interesting and comprehensive sessions that have really improved my English skills.

Chris has helped me understand the techniques needed to get really good grades as well as comprehend the texts studied in class. The lessons themselves were enjoyable with a good mixture of conversation and written work. Questions that I once found difficult and daunting became much easier. This dispelled any uneasiness when it came to sitting the exams. I am now looking forward to getting my grades in both Literature and Language on 25th of August. Thanks Chris!
