Chris Perkins is a highly qualified Teacher and Tutor.
Chris has taught A-Level chemistry since 1995.
There is a specially designed classroom for chemistry tuition where he uses a projector, Dropbox resources and the internet to clearly explain important ideas.
Scanned, handwritten answers to past exam papers are made available using Dropbox and hence materials are easily shared. Furthermore, Chris knows where students are likely to struggle and can often fix problems quickly.
Chris is an amazing teacher, I can see a huge difference in understanding with any topics he has helped me through compared with topics I’ve done in school. He has so many really useful resources and goes above and beyond with offering ideas to make independent studying easier. He has helped me incredibly with my ALevel Chemistry and I would recommend him to anyone who feels like they need some support.
My daughter was panicking about her Chemistry A level. Chris helped her to calm down, think and study constructively and she was able to get the grade she needed to get to her first choice university. I’d recommend Chris without reservation.
A very knowledgeable and experienced teacher, who has the ability to adapt teaching styles to the needs and quirks of each individual he teaches. He has accepted and worked with my daughters extreme anxiety to not only build up her chemistry knowledge, but also her confidence to show it. Anyone looking to enhance their child’s learning, skills and exam grades in Chemistry, will find no better teacher.
Chris has helped massively with understanding in all areas of chemistry, but also revision techniques and the transition from GCSE to A-level as a whole. Very friendly, would recommend 🙂
Chris has been an absolutely brilliant tutor for me throughout my A levels and I could not recommend him highly enough. He explains everything thoroughly and is always able to fix any problems and help me to understand what I couldn’t before.
I had Chris as a chemistry tutor for a couple of months prior to my final A-level exams. In that short space of time my understanding of chemistry grew exponentially. His 1-1 teaching style, clear explanations and patience allowed me to grasp the most complex theories and apply them in my exams. I decided what I wanted to learn that day and would come away feeling confident on the subject and it greatly helped that sessions were flexible. I can’t thank him enough for the help he provided with my studies. I have recommended him to all my friends and cannot rate him highly enough.
I would certainly recommend Chris to other A-Level students. I find it helpful being able to go over content and fill any gaps in my knowledge. Chris is extremely patient and is always happy to explain things a second time around. Visualising concepts on the whiteboard is very useful. Chris also provides all his students with access to a Dropbox folder which contains PowerPoints and condensed revision notes for each topic. There is also a wealth of past papers (including annotated versions with ‘model answers’). This is an absolutely exceptional resource for improving exam technique and I would wholeheartedly recommend!
Chris is fantastic at explaining new topics and as a result improves my confidence in class a lot. He often goes through my exam technique and has many useful resources which are brilliant in aiding my revision. Would definitely recommend to anyone aiming for the top grades.
My daughter was struggling with her A Level chemistry and needed some help. She was trailing behind with an E grade, but we were really lucky to find Chris. When I used to collect Molly everything was so calm, relaxed and happy. Molly said everything clicked when she had that extra bit of tuition and that she understood the mechanics of chemistry instead of learning it parrot fashion. She has just got a A grade in her AS, so proof that Chris is a great tutor and I would highly recommend.
Chris tutored one of my daughters for Chemistry GCSE and the other for Chemistry A-level. Both of them found his style of teaching enjoyable and easy to understand. They both increased in confidence and enjoyment of the subject and felt very well prepared for their exams. I am convinced that both achieved higher grades in Chemistry than they otherwise would have done.
Absolutely excellent chemistry tutor! Would definitely recommend for AS and A2 chemistry tutoring! He helped me to understand concepts and improve exam technique. Thanks to Chris I managed to get an A in A2 chemistry!
Excellent tutor, very thorough with a great tempo to the lessons! Helping massively with chemistry A-level. I’ve been able to see huge progress from the first lesson and he continually helps me to improve my understanding of the various A-level topics! Very welcoming which makes you feel comfortable in his sessions!
Chris is absolutely fantastic. He explains everything in a clear manner and he has improved my chemistry knowledge dramatically in a short period of time. Along with his excellent teaching skills, he has an impressive amount of resources which make revising much easier. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.
Chris is an excellent tutor, he has really helped me improve my understanding as well as exam technique. I would highly recommend him! I have noticed an increase in confidence with Alevel Chemistry and definitely feel that the extra help has been extremely useful.
Chris is a fantastic tutor. My son has a lot more confidence now and has moved up a grade in the short time he has being seeing Chris. He fully understands that students sometimes get blocks in their learning and works through the solutions with them. I wish he did Biology as well. Recommend to anyone who needs help or just would like to improve their grade.
Chris is an amazing tutor. He has helped my understanding of Chemistry massively. Very friendly environment for learning.
Friendly and approachable. Amazing resources and has been very helpful. Can recommend.
Chris has combined modern teaching techniques alongside traditional teaching styles to create an optimum learning environment. Chris has impacted my grades in a very positive way in the form of improving my chemistry grade by a solid two grades. I could not recommend Chris enough.
Chris has been a brilliant tutor so far and has helped me to fill the gaps in my knowledge and understand of topics that I didn’t get previously. Already, I have seen an improvement in my chemistry due to Chris’s great teaching methods and useful revision resources.
Mr Perkins is an excellent tutor. He covers the specification very well, helps with exam technique and supplies many really helpful resources for independent revision.
My son has been working with Chris on a weekly basis now for two months. He finds Chris to be really good, very thorough and in his own words, he doesn’t know how it could be better!
Absolutely amazing… probably one of the best teachers I’ve had for any subject, let alone chemistry!! He’s more than happy to repeat things twice (or five times in my case) until I’ve memorised it. If you have a big class in school or missed a few lessons, the 1-to-1 or small group sessions are really beneficial. Not only can you learn at your own pace, but you can focus on chapters of the syllabus that individually you might have flawed knowledge of. On a less serious note, Chris is really kind and makes chemistry (almost) fun – he’s definitely saved me a good few nervous breakdowns! 1000 / 10 would recommend.
I achieved an A in my a level chemistry and Chris’ sessions were a huge help towards this.
We are so glad that we found Chris to teach our son. Chris is an excellent teacher. He is patient, knowledgeable and knows how to explain the topics very well. My son really enjoys his lessons. He is also very professional, well organised and responsive. We highly recommend Chris to anyone who wants to improve their understanding of Chemistry.
Both Oliver and Josh have found your lessons extremely helpful and enjoyable. Oliver said that he chemistry exams were much easier as a result of your help than they would otherwise have been. Thank you so very much.
Fantastic teaching that’s specific to which ever exam board you have to study with. Chris is great at explaining new topics and I was delighted with my A level result with his help.
Chris clearly has a lot of experience both in the subject area and in tutoring. He has a range of interactive training aids, which have really helped my daughter understand Chemistry. She has found Chris to be extremely helpful.
Chris was very good and clear as to how he could help my son improve his grade at AS level
We have been very impressed by Chris. He is incredibly organised, explains things thoroughly, is punctual and makes my sons lessons enjoyable. I would highly recommend him as a Chemistry tutor.
This tutor is great, he helped me get from grade 6s to 9s in GCSEs!
