Thank you for always breaking everything down and explaining everything in such detail
Thank you for simplifying a complicated subject
Was very helpful and allowed me to understand what I couldn’t before
Great explanations to complex thermodynamics questions!
This guy is an absolute genius!!! I honestly recommend 100x
Christopher is extremely knowledgeable about the subject and was great at helping me get a deep understanding of the concepts. A great tutor!
"I was looking for a tutor for the GAMSAT's 3 months before the exam this March. I am so thankful that I found Dr Christopher . I was not very confident going into our first tutorial in January. However, after that first tutorial with Dr. I felt confident that I could pass or at least give it a of a good try. Dr. is so knowledgeable and experienced. His tutorials are fun and I learned so much from him in such a short space of time. I am due to sit the exam this coming Sunday March 2022. I feel confident of passing, thanks to the tutorials with Dr. . He is a true boffin and polymath. Thank you Dr. !" Paula, March 2022
" I found Christopher a few weeks before my Gamsat exam. He is a fantastic tutor and has an excellent knowledge of the gamsat style questions & the theory that goes with it. He also has an easy going and fun demeanor! My biggest regret is not finding him sooner. I would not hesitate to recommend him as a gamsat tutor!" - Clare, March 2023
"Chris was my tutor for gamsat this year. Chris is excellent, helpful and approachable. He is brilliant at breaking down difficult topics and making them easier to understand. I am so happy I had Chris as my tutor" - Denise M, 2023
" I'll keep this short and sweet: I started tutorials with Chris a few months before my GAMSAT exam. I came from a non-science background so this made studying for it especially daunting. He was so good at distilling fairly complex Biology and Chemistry into digestible and really interesting material.
I ended up getting a 70 in my exam, couldn't have done it without his help. Aside from that, I got on really well with him and actually had a lot of fun during the grinds. Couldn't recommend Chris highly enough!" Oisin, March 2022, GAMSAT tutoring.
"Can't recommend Chris enough - best tutor I've ever had (6 stars!). This was my third time sitting the GAMSAT and he made topics that I had been struggling with for a year seem so accessible! He has such a great understanding of GAMSAT and provides you with all the knowledge you need to feel confident going into the exam. He gave so much support and put a great effort into making sure I understood everything, answering any questions I had. He's personable, approachable, punctual and had great communication. He gave great advice for the exam as well as advice I'll take with me going forward. He's also great craic and I always looked forward to the session! If you need any help preparing for the GAMSAT, Chris is your man!" Ava, GAMSAT tutoring, September 2022
"I reached out to Christopher for some help with Gamsat prep and I honestly cannot say a bad word about him or the service he provides. Everything was done to facilitate my schedule and make things as convenient as possible whether it was an hour on Monday evening or two hours on a Sunday morning. The enthusiasm and standard was consistent throughout. The sessions were always great fun and I always looked forward to meeting up. Christopher was able to cover huge amounts of work in the time we had available and I never felt left behind or lost. He always combined the serious stuff with having a laugh and telling a few stories. A genuine nice guy specialising in delivering a super professional service. I hope we will be medical colleagues some day in the future after the Gamsat results come out. Highly recommend.!!" Craig C, GAMSAT tutoring, September 2022.
"I started getting tutoring for the GAMSAT from Christopher a few months before my first sitting in September. I wasn't sure where to start or how I should be studying for the exam. Christopher helped me feel at ease from the very first lesson. He is very knowledgable on the exam structure and content and could teach in a simple and understandable way. I really enjoyed learning from him and also being held accountable, especially for section 2! He provided great feedback for essays and also helped me develop my ideas. I would recommend him to anyone sitting the exam so you hopefully never have to sit it again!" Shannon S, First Tutors, GAMSAT tutoring ,September 2022.
