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.
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 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 🙂
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!
This tutor is great, he helped me get from grade 6s to 9s in GCSEs!
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.
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.
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!
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 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 is an excellent chemistry tutor! He has helped me immensely with my understanding and knowledge of the subject as an A Level, not only by the extremely useful tutoring sessions in which he answers any questions I have and is able to explain everything to me, but also with the many resources and notes I am given through Dropbox to assist me in furthering my understanding. He was recommended to me and I would recommend his Chemistry tutoring to anyone who has any doubts about Chemistry, he can definitely help you!
Very helpful. Chris goes through each topic until you understand. He has very useful resources that will definitely help you to get good grades.
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.
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.
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 has been great with my son so far. He has taken into account what his needs are and is working towards his goals at a good pace. His set up is fantastic and my son felt at ease immediately with him. Mock exams in May will be a good indicator of progress.
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.
Since my lessons with Chris, my in class topic tests have improved by two grades. So much so, my predicted grade has gone from a 6 to an 8! Additionally, the resources provided allow me to revise effectively outside of Chris’s tuition.
Chris provides brilliant lessons with in-depth explanations and exam past paper questions on all topics. Quizlet flash cards are also great for learning key definitions. I would highly recommend his lessons to all A-Level students aiming for top grades.
Chris was very good and clear as to how he could help my son improve his grade at AS level
I achieved an A in my a level chemistry and Chris’ sessions were a huge help towards this.
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.
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.
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 is absolutely brilliant at explaining things and has been so helpful! Would recommend to anybody!
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.
Highly recommended to GCSE or A Level students. Mr Perkins really covers your specification comprehensively using flashcards and an online resource hub. In our sessions, we revise topics, break down exam questions together and really try to understand concepts.
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.
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!
Chris has tutored my son for five months. In this time my son has had his predicted A Level Chemistry grade increased from D to an A. Chris is highly recommended.
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.
