Why Plymouth Tutors?


Chris is absolutely fantastic because he explains everything clearly and has improved my chemistry knowledge dramatically in a short period of time. His excellent teaching skills and impressive resources also make revising much easier and so I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

Patrick… Year 13 student DHSB

Chris has been an absolutely brilliant tutor for me throughout my A-levels and I could not recommend him highly enough. For instance, he explains everything thoroughly and is always able to fix any problems. Chris helps me to understand what I couldn’t before.

Ione… Year 13 student PHSG

Chris is an excellent tutor as he has really helped to improve my understanding as well as exam technique. I would highly recommend him because I have noticed an increase in confidence with A-level Chemistry and definitely feel that the extra help has been extremely useful.

Freya… Year 13 student DHSG

Chris is an excellent chemistry tutor because he has helped me immensely with my understanding and knowledge. He answers any questions I have and is able to explain everything to me. He was recommended to me and I would recommend his Chemistry tutoring to anyone who has any doubts about Chemistry. Chris can definitely help you!

Louise… Year 13 student DHSG

We are so glad that we found Chris to teach our son. Chris is an excellent teacher as he is patient, knowledgeable and knows how to explain the topics very well. My son really enjoys his lessons because he is very professional, well organised and responsive. We highly recommend Chris to anyone who wants to improve their understanding of Chemistry.

Thynn… parent of Year 11 student DHSB 

Chris is a fantastic tutor as 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, so I would recommend him to anyone who needs help or just would like to improve their grade.

Drums ...

Chris has been my tutor for almost two years now and I always look forward to and thoroughly enjoy the weekly drumming session. I started drumming late in life & I am learning to play for fun primarily but also ambling through the rock school exams.

Chris keeps it light hearted and knows when to push or pull you to get the best outcome and mixes it up so you get a varied and rewarding lesson. For instance, I like the fact that I always come away with plenty to think about and practice ready for the following week.

Harry… drum student

Chris started teaching me drums about 13 months ago. I have been wanting to learn the drums for about 25 years, so as a more mature student I found Chris to be ideal for what I needed.

Having previous musical experience at a high level on other instruments, I found it refreshing that whatever area I was struggling with, Chris instantly managed to have simple exercises to help me overcome the problem at hand. The easy going studio environment that he has created makes weekly lessons one of the high points of the week. 

Gary… drum student

I have been learning to play drums with Chris for roughly 8 years and can’t recommend him enough. Whether you’re a beginner or more intermediate, Chris is a very patient and fun teacher who will make you feel comfortable and confident behind the kit.

I’ve gone through all my grades with Chris and can’t thank him enough for all the skills and knowledge he has passed on to me. Drumming lessons with Chris is a no brainer, so if you’re considering drumming lessons then you’ve found your teacher.
