Oxfordshire Private Tutor with DBS & Specialist Safeguarding Training
Nothing is more important than safeguarding young people. With enhanced Level 3 'Designated Person' safeguarding training, and over 5 years experience as the safeguarding lead in two Oxfordshire schools, you can rest assured that you will be working with an English Tutor / Philosophy tutor in Oxfordshire who is well equipped to support both the learning and pastoral needs of students. With OSCB 'Train the Trainer' accreditation I am also qualified to train other professionals at Level 1 (Generalist). Looking for a private tutor in Oxfordshire you can trust? Look no further.
Plans, Premium Tutoring
Whilst happy to offer one-off or short term tutoring it is my preference that a medium term learning plan is co-authored where:
the desired outcome(s) are agreed;
milestones are agreed;
expectations of tutor and tutee are clearly set out;
communication protocol with tutee's school-based teachers are established.
Approaches to Learning
With 18 years experience of teaching, over 7 years as an Assistant and Deputy Headteacher, and 2 1/2 years as a School Governor in Oxfordshire, I have a wealth of experience in supporting students from across the ability range - from ages 11 to 19.
Whether you aspire to a place at Oxbridge, a Russell Group University, or would simply like to achieve your very best, you can be confident that I will quickly establish what needs to be done to help you secure success.
Individual, Paired or Group Sessions Offered
The costs of 1-2-1 tutoring in Oxfordshire can sometimes seem daunting.
I am able to offer significant savings on the usual hourly rate for 1-2-1 sessions where tutees would like to request paired or group sessions.
Further discounts can be offered for medium / long term arrangements with tutees.

If anyone is looking for and English or philosophy tutor I can highly recommend Chris Davies. Don't think twice! He got my son from an 'ungraded' in English GCSE to a grade '7' (A in old system) in his re-sit one year later. He is really excellent, patient, thorough and able to give confidence to even the most reluctant students. My son has extra learning needs and was convinced that he couldn't 'do' English. His academic confidence has sky-rocketed with this result. Thanks Chris!

I took AS English Literature in my second year of A Levels to give my university application a much needed boost. With five months left until the exam I realised I urgently needed some help. I took Chris on as my tutor and in that short amount of time he was not only paramount in the top A grade I achieved but, perhaps most importantly for me, he helped me to comprehend and love Literature in a way I hadn't done before.

I find lessons exciting and provoking, we study the content of the course in sufficient detail and we do useful things in class to further consolidate this learning. There is a good balance of learning, activities, and testing our knowledge

Mr Davies led highly interactive classes which challenged me to think critically about high level material whilst still facilitating for the range abilities in our class. I entered my exam confident and was able to showcase a range of knowledge from beyond the specification.
