At present in my early 50s. I began teaching, in a London tutorial college, straight after coming down from Oxford. A few years after that, I interrupted my teaching career to return to university to pursue doctoral research, but I continued to see a small number of private students throughout my time as a post-graduate student. Accordingly, I have somewhere in the region of thirty years’ experience of helping students to realise their potential and, quite often, to exceed their expectations of themselves. My original specialisms were English Language and Literature, and these remain subjects I enjoy teaching immensely, but I have equal experience by now in History of Art, Philosophy, Film Studies, and Religious Studies, each of which I have taught to A level students and undergraduates. I also specialise in Pre-U English. The following is a quotation from the reference supplied by the school from which I resigned last year, after twenty years as Head of English and de facto Head of Humanities, in order to focus on private tuition: ‘Bill’s main virtues as a teacher […] are his infectious enthusiasm for his subjects, his immense knowledge and erudition, his intimate familiarity with past papers and assessment criteria, his commitment to his pupils, his willingness to make supererogatory efforts on their behalf, his provision of extensive and meticulous course notes, and his generosity with his time.’

Hello, My name is Max and I’ve been a teacher for the last 7 years. I specialise in exam entry, writing workshops and improving performance for the 11+, GCSE and A Levels for Language and Literature. I have a warm and compassionate approach, dedicated to each student’s development and academic access. I am proud to say I’ve helped students gain entry to St Paul’s, St Olave’s, Westminister, Dartmouth Grammar, Blackheath High, Henrietta Barnett, South Hampstead High and many others across London; sometimes helping them to win scholarships. I’ve helped GCSE and A Level students improve their grades from levels 6 to 8 and 9, working within the curriculum, homeschool students and students with learning difficulties. I am also an award winning writer (stage and screen) and know, as well as the joy of writing, the importance of academic discipline and articulacy, especially when in preparing for exams and applications. I studied scriptwriting at Central Saint Martins (BA) and playwriting (MA) at Goldsmiths University. That said, I do love to try and help each student find some pleasure in what they’re doing, with a patient and empathetic approach. I also run play and screenwriting workshops for kids and young adults and have worked the Yard Theatre, the Southwark Playhouse, The Gate Theatre, Flux Theatre, Theatre Workout, Actor’s Centre, Eaton House the Manor, Sydenham High, Alexandra Juniors and many other schools and institutions across the country. I have a real belief in the power of learning and the impact it can make on young people’s lives. I do hope I can help with your child’s studies. Scriptwriter Bio I've been a recipient of the Paris Royal Script Award, Screen to Screen Award, the Peggy Ramsay Foundation, a finalist for the Papatango Prize, Samuel French's Off Off-Broadway Award, Theatre Uncut's Prize for Political Writing and recently, the Nick Darke Award. I've also collaborated with the Wooster Group in NYC, The English Theatre Berlin and the British Museum as a dramaturg. I've had plays produced at Theatre 503, King’s Head Theatre, the Arcola, Paines Plough and many others across London. Testimonials I have two daughters, Grace and Alice, and Max, over two years was instrumental in getting them both into the top sets of English and gaining entry to Henrietta Barnett school. I would definitely recommend. Ann Marie, mother of Alice and Grace. Max helped my son, Chindera, get into Eltham College with high marks for his 11+. Pero, mother of Chindera. My daughter, Ann-Maria, has severe autism and struggled with her comprehension and creative writing. Max worked patiently with her and had an excellent relationship, helping her to really blossom. Natalie Campo, mother of Ann-Maria. He is also very professional and communicates progress regularly. Ayodeji Ojo, mother of Faith. Gayatri, although very bright, found her GCSE exams torturous. Max helped her to learn exam techniques which really helped to break everything down. Mina. My son George worked with Max in a homeschool capacity and, although English was far from his favourite subject, Max was the best tutor he ever worked with, improving from a level 4 to a 7 over a year. Sharron Delaney Zayed and Mohammed were helped by Max to improve their Engish language for GCSE. He helped imrpove their scores hugely. Clementine, nanny. Keira moved here from Australia and hated the academic system of her school so was tutored privately. Max helped her find pleasure again in reading while successfully helping her through her academic year as a homeschooled student. Keira’s mum. Max was an excellent employee – hard working, focused, responsive and a pleasure to work with. He had brilliant rapport with the students, and was able to deliver, clear, concise instructions, and work with students of all abilities to guide them through the project. I would definitely recommend him. David Workman, head of Youth Coordination, Southwark Playhouse Max has been working as a tutor and workshop leader for us for a year now and he is one of our most popular tutors.

I’m an experienced teacher and creative writing tutor with a first class degree in Philosophy and Modern Languages from University College London, including one year of study at Université de Paris-Sorbonne. I have five years of teaching experience with individuals, school groups, arts organisations and community groups. I’ve taught English Literature and creative writing with a wide range of organisations, including The Barbican Centre, The Poetry School and The Midnight Run. My specialities are English Literature, English Language and Philosophy. My students have ranged from 11 to 80 years of age, and I have substantial experience working with students for whom English is not their first language. My lessons use creative, engaging techniques tailored to the needs and goals of each student, to help them unlock their true potential. I combine a passion for the subjects with a rigorous focus on exam strategy and study techniques. My goal is to improve grades, and give students both the tools and the drive for long term success. I’m dedicated to fostering a safe, enjoyable learning environment, where we work to identify areas for improvement and map out strategies to maximise . I believe an approach grounded in kindness, patience, and fun is key to helping students with areas of difficulty, reluctance or stress. Overall, I am focused on helping students believe in their own potential and giving them the support they need to meet it. As a recipient of both an academic scholarship and an arts scholarship to my secondary school, I know how life-changing exam success can be. I’m committed to helping students secure those transformative opportunities. I’m also a prize-winning writer, poet and author, with multiple national awards for creative writing. Those include a London Writers Award 2021, the Poetry London Prize 2020 and the Verve Poetry Festival Prize 2020. I’m represented by Harriet Moore of David Higham Literary Agency. This work has redoubled my passion for teaching literature, and I have honed my skills through my years of freelance teaching. I offer high-quality, individually-tailored creative writing lessons. These can optionally be combined with qualification-focused teaching to engage students with English Literature and English Language, and help give them a practical understanding of the nuts and bolts of writing that they can then apply to their school work.

I graduated from Oxford University with a degree in Classics before going on to become a fully-qualified teacher. I worked in the private school sector for nine years before focussing my career on providing high-quality online tuition. I tutor Classical Civilisation, Latin and Ancient History from KS2 all the way to Undergraduate level and I really enjoy bringing this wonderfully diverse and interesting subject to life for my students. I also have experience in tutoring pupils for 11 and 13+ entrance examinations in English and Verbal Reasoning which I find immensely rewarding. I have mentored students as a supervisor for EPQ projects, with a particular focus on written assignments. Helping learners to develop the quality, sophistication and originality of their written work is something that I love to do. Whilst I worked in a school, I was responsible for helping students to prepare their personal statements for UCAS applications, so I have a wealth of experience in that area. I have worked on applications for a wide variety of subjects, including Economics, Medicine, Psychology, History, and many others. I have an excellent track record in helping my students to achieve offers from their first-choice university. As an Oxford graduate myself, I am well-placed to advise applicants on what to expect from the application and interview process. As a tutor, I aim to create thoughtful, innovative and exciting lessons, which support my students as individuals. I am very motivated, hardworking and dependable, and I get a real sense of purpose from helping my students to achieve the best possible grades.

So you're stressed and agonising over that essay you can't write, or that text you can't get your head around? And you have an exam on the way! Maybe you've taken the exam already and didn't quite get the results you wanted. It can be daunting to say the least. But that's where I can help you. While still at school, I tutored some of the younger students and saw real progress and their grades, skills and self-esteem. It's a process I've been developing ever since. After graduating as an actor from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with a 1st, I spent 5 years working extensively in all levels of the education system, from School Students all the way up to Consultant Doctors. The one thing all of the people I mentor or tutor say again and again is "I never saw it like that" and that's crucial to what I offer. My focus has always been on taking seemingly abstract, complex and confusing material and making it accessible using my unusual slant on things. And I can use this to help you overcome the obstacles in your way. I teach seminars regularly with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust using a text to explore essay technique, thematic ideas and language. I regularly coach students and professionals to develop communication, problem solving and leadership. All while building their confidence with a given skill. My approach is tailored to the individual, and is therefore flexible to suit their needs. But central to it are the following criteria: - Building core competencies relative to the subject: Essay writing, objective analytics, attention to details and how to expand on them. - Identifying obstacles specific to the student. Using coaching techniques, tasks and conversation to help them overcome it. - Exploring alternative view points and helping to develop a wider understanding of the material in context. - Building confidence and competency in bringing knowledge and skills to the subject in question. - Basic exam technique, focus and stress-relief to help think analytically under pressure. - Public speaking, presentation skills and ownership of the text if required for a public speaking role. Outside of the tutoring world my hobbies ( as you might have guessed) include theatre. But I've also developed a bizarre love of gardening, and no I've moved to a big city, I'm really looking forward to the challenge of growing vegetables on my window sill!

Hi, I'm Sophie :) I graduated from King’s College London with a bachelor’s in History and a master’s in Modern History. I tutored for three years whilst completing my degrees. Since graduating, I have continued to tutor some students online, as well as teaching English as a foreign language. I love working with children and teens at all ages and I have experience teaching children 2 to 18 years old. I have significant experience tutoring History up to degree level and English up to A-Level and have successfully tutored students who were consistently achieving C grades, going on to attain A*/A’s grades. Additionally, I have aided tutees with other GCSE and A-Level subjects, including Biology. I am highly committed to creating a positive and relaxed learning environment where the tutee feels comfortable and confident to engage in the lesson. I have seen much success with my students after observing their individual learning styles and in turn altering my teaching approach. I particularly enjoy discovering areas of interest for students in subjects they perhaps otherwise struggle to engage with. To maximise my students’ success, I spend a significant time contextualising the syllabus content in an exam setting – building my tutees confidence by targeting their exam technique and essay writing skills. Don't hesitate to contact me to ask any questions and set up a free trial session.

My name is Valeria Garnica and I am a Canadian graduate from UC Berkeley in sociology. Now I find myself in the great city of London, as I am doing an MSc in Global Media & Communications at the London School of Economics. I am curious, enthusiastic and eager to learn. I have seven years of tutoring experience with children, and four years at the university-level. My expertise is in English Literature and Composition, however, I am well equipped to tutor in all social science and humanities courses. I am patient, kind and interactive. It would be an honour to work alongside students in the area to help them reach their personal and academic goals. Additionally, I have four years of professional experience. I worked at the Program for Disabled Students Office at a university in California, where I worked closely with counselors to create individualized paths for each student’s academic necessities. I also managed and organized hundreds of student documents and records on online databases. Finally, I assisted the department with exam proctoring and scribing. My work with disabled students stems from my own experience with Dyslexia. As a tutor, I am especially attentive to students with learning disabilities. Currently, I work in Public Relations. I am responsible for curating articles, pitches, press releases, roundups, and campaigns for clients. These are all practical and professional skills that I am able to transfer to my work as a tutor. I am committed to helping students succeed with all my past experience, knowledge and passion.

I am a confidence-building tutor with a fun and engaging style; the tutor who is also the friend.

As a result of my time, I want the child to develop positively as a person as well as within the subject we are working on. Testimonials: - Lucy is an excellent enthusiastic tutor who does a great job keeping my son interested and engaged. I would highly recommend her. Father of Zain 8+ Preparation - Thank you for working so hard with Annabel. She has improved so much and genuinely enjoys all her sessions with you, which is a huge achievement for time spent doing maths and english in my view! Mother of Annabel 11+ Preparation - Lucy has been the best teacher ever and has taught me so much. If I pass any exams, it will be because of her awesome advice! Hana 11+ Preparation - I would like to thank Lucy for giving Julian such a thorough preparation so that he had confidence to deal with the tasks. His brilliant results, we think, are largely thanks to her help. Mother of Julian English Lit GCSE - Cecilia is deeply dyslexic and Lucy was able to take her from a modest level of writing to an A in English Literature. She was absolutely amazing, the best tutor my daughter ever had. Her ability to organise and simplify the work were crucial in achieving this result.

I have been a teacher of both English Language and Literature for the past 5 years. I am proud to have been a help to a number of students who have gone on to successfully sit for their GCSEs. I am particularly experienced with the AQA GCSE exam format, but I am qualified to teach all exam boards. I am currently reading for my PhD at the University of York, where I am studying English romantic literature, with a particular focus on the study of Keats. I completed my PGCE at the University of Nottingham. However, I did my BA at the University of Malta as that is where I grew up before moving to the UK a few years ago. I like to personalise my teaching to suit the needs of my students and will do all I can to ensure that I am clear and well understood. I prefer a more informal, conversational approach to teaching where possible and, while I cannot guarantee success, I can promise to do my very best to help boost confidence, ability and enjoyment in both English Language and Literature.
