"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."

— Ben, Abingdon

"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."

"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!

- Maggie, parent of GCSE English student in 2018
