He prefers to formulate a graded plan for our tutorials which progresses by reference to key goals:

"I have been with Chris for almost a year now, and have found his English lessons to be thorough and enjoyable. Firstly, his extensive knowledge on literature and history was highly beneficial to my studies in Year 9 english, such as planning essays or writing comprehension responses. Second, his analysis on texts is in depth, comprehensive and reflects his teaching skill. Third, he regularly sets homework, and provides photocopies of the sheets/booklets etc. of the work given. Overall, I would highly recommend Chris as a tutor for his expertise, commitment and kindness."
