About Me

I am a Mathematics teacher, coordinator and tutor of over 10 years. I provide tailored Mathematics tutoring for high school students, which assists them in achieving their desired goals. I centre my teaching around building professional relationships with my students and create an environment which develops good study habits and a more positive outlook on Mathematics. Students have come to enjoy Mathematics through my teaching and realise that the subject is a lot more approachable then they first realise. I tutor, because I know what it is to personally struggle with study and Mathematics and something I overcome through the help of others and am now returning the favour. Through my study at the University of Adelaide and years of personal study I have come to a good understanding of the content, but it is through my experience as a teacher and tutor that I have come to understand what it means to help others in improving their academics. Below are some of the testimonies of past students and parents.

I was taught under Christopher Stirrat for 2 years since year 11. From my experience, his teaching ability allows learning mathematics an easier experience. His work ethic consistently encouraged me and my fellow students to further progress our learning.
At the start of year 11, I was struggling with mathematics, so I requested private tutoring from him. What I found was that Christopher's tutoring style informs the student on the content while allowing the student to complete the work themselves so that the content sticks to their mind. Despite my shortcomings, Christopher was accepting and kind while tutoring me, letting me feel comfortable and more able to engage with his teaching without it feeling like a stressful chore. Gradually, I was able to improve my understanding of the mathematical questions and my speed in completing them which is important during an exam.
It is sufficient to say that Christopher's tutoring has allowed to pass both Year 11 and 12 and improve greatly my work ethic.

Chris is not only a fantastic teacher and tutor but most importantly a great man who is understanding and extremely supportive of his students decisions. Being in this level of teaching for a decade now his methods are unmatched. Chris taught me mathematics through the entirety of my senior years at school and I’m all the wiser from it. I can’t think of a greater person as a tutor for myself or for any of my mates.

Chris has been working with our daughter this year. We have seen a huge growth in her confidence and ability all things ‘mathematics’. She regularly describes Chris as having a practical approach to what she has previously found foreign and she delights in her heightened ability to problem solve. We appreciate the relaxed environment offered and are grateful that Chris will work with our daughter through her final years at high school.

As a year 12 student I was struggling on some concepts of maths, but Chris has this ability to explain maths unlike anybody else. Chris is a very organised and is very nice to work with. Let’s you ask questions and answers them very well. If you struggle with a concept he will explain every part of the concept to you and even provide you with examples to test if you understood the content.

My son is in year 10 and enjoys Chris’s maths lessons. Chris is a professional and an excellent teacher who simplifies the maths to suit the student and help with their understanding. He has built my son’s confidence in doing maths .

We were so lucky to find Chris. Aside from being very professional and friendly Chris has an amazing ability to be able to simplify problems and explain concepts that make maths so much more enjoyable and easier to understand. My daughters knowledge, skills and results have improved tremendously with Chris’s teaching and guidance.
