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, I'm Marie from Oxford, UK. I'm a professional teacher, University Lecturer and Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Trainer. My specialist subjects include Business, Marketing, English Language, Media Studies and Sociology. I'm also a qualified English teacher, and have recently been tutoring students to prepare them for their 11+, 13+, and IELTS exams, as well as delivering a complete primary homeschooling programme. In my career so far, I've been lucky enough to work with some fantastic education institutions including Universities and Colleges in Oxford and China. I've delivered professional development training to teachers and professional staff from many different countries, and my work has also seen me travel to places such as Russia and Kurdistan. I am passionate about helping my students and clients achieve their goals through education, and I'm equally as happy delivering bespoke training sessions to large groups of staff, teaching a University course, or getting a call from an individual student telling me they've achieved the grade they needed that we worked on in their private study sessions. Before I retrained as a teacher, I worked as a Marketing Manager and Project Manager for a University in Oxford, and these skills and responsibilities have helped to shape my adaptable teaching style and capabilities. I would love to hear from you and find out about your training and education needs, and let's achieve your goals, together.

Hello, this is Sem! I am an LLB Graduate from Queen Mary University of London and I have recently finished my LLM in Energy and Natural Resources Law at Queen Mary University of London. I am working in a law firm and doing online tutoring at the same time. I have taught more than 45 students in the past three years, prepared them for exams, helped them with courseworks and enhanced their knowledge. I also taught children, assisted them for learning a new language (both French and Turkish). Thus, I am native in Turkish, fluent in French and English, intermediate in Spanish. I am a very organised, disciplined and patient person. Moreover, I went to a French School from the age of 3 until 8, which is called Lycée Français Pierre Loti d'Istanbul, and I got my French Baccalaureate with Mention Tres Bien (16.2/20). All in all, my main goal is to help, motivate and support students to achieve their best. The most effective way to do this is by making sure that students understand each topic and do not hesitate to ask any questions. Thus, at the end of each session I am summarising what has been covered during the lesson. During the lessons, I am including real-life examples and stories that I have encountered in order to help the student remember and better understand.

I am currently a postgraduate student working for a Masters in English Literature at Oxford University, with the intention of starting a PhD at Oxford next year. I was an undergraduate in English Literature at Cambridge University, where I achieved a First in all three years. I have a huge amount of passion for my subject, which I would love to pass onto others as I tutor them. I also understand the difficulties that studying English literature can pose, however, from structuring essays on set texts to style of writing in unseen work or creative writing, and I am able to help develop these skills and overcome these difficulties. As well as receiving a D1 in English Pre-U, I studied Spanish and Latin Pre-U at Westminster School, receiving a D1 in Spanish and a D2 in Latin. I strongly believe that languages are the most enriching subjects you can study, both intellectually as they challenge you to think more closely about the language and grammar that we use every day (Latin in particular encourages you to think about the roots of our language and the complexities of grammar, something I find particularly interesting), but also practically, as being able to speak Spanish opens up a whole world of people, experiences and opportunities which would otherwise have been impossibilities. With my help, students could conquer these languages and uncover the enriching and exciting possibilities that they offer. I also studied Maths to A-Level, where I received an A*. As someone who studied Maths as a complement to other humanities subjects, I like to think that I have a somewhat unique angle from which I can approach Maths teaching, which may be of help to those who are struggling at Maths and would like an extra helping hand. My main experience has been volunteering-based, as I was a volunteer for 2 years at a special-needs school, where I helped out in the classroom with a range of age-groups, teaching subjects from Science to English. I also have two younger siblings, whom I have helped with their schoolwork for a number of years, in particular informally tutoring my brother in Latin and English.

I am a 26-year-old Oxford graduate (first-class honours) and fully-qualified English teacher with over five years teaching and tutoring experience. In terms of my own qualifications, I have 11 GCSEs (9 A* / 2 A grades), 5 A-Levels (5 A* grades), a Bachelor Degree (1st Class) and a Master's Degree (Distinction). I also have three years` experience teaching English Literature and English Language at Hurstpierpoint College, an outstanding, mixed-sex independent school in Sussex. Here, I taught students ranging from Year 7 to Year 13. My classes at GCSE and A-Level consistently attained excellent results and I am familiar with a variety of exam-boards, including Edexcel, OCR, WJEC and AQA. I have a strong understanding of exam specifications, mark-schemes and course structures, and I have extensive experience teaching and marking English coursework. As Head of Year 9 English at Hurstpierpoint, I have valuable experience designing department-wide learning resources which effectively promote good pupil progress. When I moved to London to complete an MA at King`s College London (graduating in 2019 with Distinction), I worked with the tutoring agency London Scholars, providing 1-1 English tutoring to over 15 students across London. In this time, I worked with pupils in Year 1 through to Year 13. As well as assisting with GCSE and A-Level exams, I worked closely with Year 12/13 students to support them in their university applications, running mock interviews, supervising EPQs and scrutinising personal statements. I also worked with students to develop their Verbal Reasoning and English skills in preparation for 11+, 13+ and Common Entrance examinations. I received positive feedback from all my clients who have found me to be a professional, friendly and knowledgeable tutor, equipped with effective learning resources. Last year I took a maternity cover post as an English Teacher at St George`s international school, Montreux, Switzerland. During this time I had sole responsibility for Year 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 English classes. This experience greatly developed my knowledge of international exam boards and also allowed me to work closely with EAL (English as an Additional Language) students. SOME FEEDBACK ON TUTORING SESSIONS: "Marcus was a superb tutor. This is my child`s assessment: "His understanding of the exam boards and the ways examiners mark essays has really helped me to adapt my style of writing and I feel a lot more confident in my written responses. He is always eager to improve my understanding of texts and has helped me become more critical of my own ideas surrounding them. Not only is he a brilliant academically focused teacher, he is an immensely approachable and likeable person" - Peter "Very good tutor for English, highly recommended!" - Radhika "Marcus is very professional in his approach. So far my daughter has had about 3-4 sessions with Marcus and we have already seen a big improvement in her writing skills. He is patient and engaging and always arrives with a prepared lesson plan. We hope to continue with Marcus this fall." - Milena "Marcus is very professional, organised and very hardworking and he has the ability to engage my son, exceptionally well throughout the lesson. I have nothing but the highest praises for Marcus’ teaching approach and effectiveness. He is also a very exceptional English Tutor. He is very knowledgable on the material that my son is studying and has gone through it, thoroughly with him so far. My son is very lucky to have Marcus as a tutor, as he’s brilliant all round and I am extremely grateful." - Dionne "Marcus tutored our daughter through her English GCSE exams in 2019. Alice wanted help with English Language, particularly creative writing. Marcus`s work with Alice helped her structure her writing and prepare her not only for her creative writing exam but also with an approach to her writing and written questions across different subjects. She gained confidence as well as knowledge from her tutorials. Marcus is easy going, engaging and fitted straight in with a busy household. During Alices recent exams Marcus took the time to check up on Alice and offer encouragement. I`m happy to highly recommend Marcus." - Alex "Marcus has been an excellent tutor for my son who is taking his GCSEs shortly. He is extremely well prepared and organised, with presentations for each session. He gives me immediate feedback and a summary of what has been covered and what needs to be done. A*!" - Max TUTORING APPROACH: In terms of my tutoring approach, I pride myself on providing a tailored service which responds to the particular strengths and needs of the student. Through questioning, constant feedback on work and adaptive planning, I hope to develop a system of teaching and learning with the student which will best ensure their continued progress. I generally build my tutoring sessions around practice papers, example answers and mark-schemes, breaking down the tasks so the student can work on the elements they find most difficult. English is a subject which requires a whole host of skills - timing, planning, structuring, careful reading, comprehension, accurate SPAG (spelling, punctuation, grammar), creativity, analysis, proof-reading - and my lessons encourage students to identify their areas for improvement and to implement practical strategies for overcoming areas of weakness. Above all, I consider myself a warm and enthusiastic teacher. It is my belief that students learn best when they are engaged yet relaxed, when they feel motivated to ask questions and reflect positively on their work. With academic pressures as intense ever, it is my intention to provide sessions which make the student feel in control of their work. Should you have any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

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 have studied International Baccalaureate and currently studying Business Administration majoring in management and Marketing. I have been tutoring for the past few years from the range of Year 2 to Year 11 and with any help needed to push them forward.

I like to be practical with my students and help them engage in discussions, so they feel comfortable with me teaching.

I have taught English Literature for over 25 years from secondary to degree level. I worked as a lecturer in English Literature at the University of Leicester, Loughborough University and The Open University. I’m also a GCSE and A Level examiner with Cambridge Assessment and have taught at many levels of age, ability and subject experience. I hold a PhD in English Literature (University of Leicester, 1998) and also a first class BA Hons degree in English Literature (University of Leicester, 1993). I was Visiting Fellow at Oxford University in 2000 and I am the author of the book, ‘The Man who would be Kipling: The Colonial Fiction and the Frontiers of Exile’ (Palgrave Macmillan, 2003). I embrace a welcoming, collaborative approach to teaching in which students actively engage in the learning process, assured that their ideas are welcomed, valued, and encouraged. I’ve found over the years that a friendly, welcoming and constructive teaching environment enables students to grow in confidence and develop their interpretive and communicative skills most effectively. Confidence is key to learning, and I engender this both in reading literary texts and thinking about their themes, ideas, values and contexts.

Would you like to understand and speak English with natural intonation and not worry about making mistakes? Would you like to learn grammar and vocabulary in context instead of being focused on grammar rules? I am a qualified English teacher from Liverpool; I had taught English as a Second Language to young learners, teens, and adults for several ESL schools in Poland and Russia. I believe that mindset and motivation are two important keys for language learning and for trying to learn any skill. I understand that limitations and past experiences can shape our identity; I know this from experience because when I was younger, I was told that learning a language and doing well academically was not for everyone. I was told that I would never do well and this decreased my confidence. I realised that language learning was possible when I moved abroad and started practicing Spanish and Russian. My experiences abroad gave me the motivation to complete and achieve a First-Honours English degree. As an educator, I think it is very important for me to always do my very best to meet all your needs and to inspire you that anything is possible. I believe that different teachers are suited for different people, so if you think that I am the right teacher for you or your child, please feel free to send me a message and I can discuss more in detail about my teaching methods.

I am a social sciences and humanities tutor with a wealth of academic and teaching experience. I have taught and lectured in universities both in the UK and internationally for well over ten years. I look forward to the opportunity of sharing this experience with A-level and undergraduate tutees who require help preparing for exams and working on coursework. I teach History, Sociology, Philosophy, Government and Politics and English Language up to degree level. The benefit of having a tutor is that lessons can be tailored to the specific needs of the tutee. My experience as a lecturer, teaching assistant and seminar leader has given me the academic and pedagogical experience necessary for identifying those needs. My approach is to spend the first session, collaboratively with the student, diagnosing areas for improvement and identifying the type of learner the tutee is. Together with the student, and considering time availability (i.e., how long before deadlines for exams and/or coursework) goals are set for the sessions. I will then develop lessons according to these goals. Parents can, of course, be involved in this process. I look forward to the opportunity of working with tutees on achieving their goals.
