I am a graduate of Oxford University. I tutored throughout my studies, and consequently have 9 years of experience - both in the UK and abroad. I teach English Language and Literature, History, Latin and Greek and French up to A-level, as my main subjects. I have also specialised in tutoring the humanities up to A-Level/ IB Level tutoring, including politics, religious studies and history. I have taught at all levels, having worked with students as young as 5 years-old, through to A-Level students and adult learners. I have experience in preparing students for the ISEB Pre-tests, for 11+, 13+ and common entrance - English and maths. I have successfully coached many students through the application procedures to top UK independent schools, including Eton College and Harrow School, and to top universities including Cambridge University and University College London. I am a committed tutor and have consistently produced excellent results. I believe that effective teaching must focus on the student’s needs and must be engaging and fun. I always strive to bring the best out in my students.

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.’

I am currently studying Biochemistry at University of Oxford having finished schooling at North London Collegiate School where I gained 45/45 in the International Baccalaureate (IB) programme. I have had previous experience tutoring IB biology, chemistry, English, maths and economics as well as GCSE French, English, maths, biology and chemistry. I believe in altering my teaching style according to the student and have had experience in tutoring a variety of different academic abilities and ages. I am extremely organised and am happy to go above and beyond in regards to preparation and gathering resources to help the student. My experience in tutoring for IB and GCSE means that I am good at ensuring that all parts of the syllabus are covered and that the student is well informed of what’s expected in the exam. One of my IB students was recently admitted to Tufts University in Massachusetts while other students that I am currently tutoring for SAT are currently applying for numerous highly ranked American Universities.

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.

I am a very approachable and professional Teacher currently working within a tutoring establishments across the UK delivering English, Drama and Science lessons. I have experience working as a leading English Tutor role, of which I provide my personally prepared lesson plans and materials for students and others to use. In addition, I hold a strong array of knowledge within the education and drama industry, of which in particular are: professional teaching standards and student relation building skills, especially but not limited to: providing a professional, entertaining and educational learning environment for students in every lesson. Holding previous work experience within teaching positions has provided me with a useful understanding of all that is expected from an education authority figure whilst granting me the knowledge and efficiency to successfully meet these requirements. I am currently seeking a full-time, permanent job related to my skills background, but not necessarily limited to this as I am always looking to increase my experience in education. I am on the DBS update service and I have SEN experience as well.

Hi there, I have a colourful teaching background which began on the tropical east coast of paradise (Australia). My first teaching experiences were shared between the fitness and tourism industries where I was a personal trainer, aerobics instructor, weightlifting coach, marine naturalist and Japanese tour guide on the Great Barrier Reef. Over the years I continued to expand on my teaching skills and became a dive instructor, underwater photographer and CrossFit athlete. During these years speaking Japanese, teaching people how to dive and developing a motivational mindset as an athlete, I was studying to become a school teacher at university and tutoring advanced english. I am now a qualified primary school teacher, high school english teacher, TEFL (teaching, english as a foreign language) teacher, writer and poet living in London. My teaching philosophies are very constructivist. My students are encouraged and guided towards being active meaning makers of their learning and environments. I am also a pragmatist and humanist as I align my teaching practice with practicality, care and synergy. This is quite the opposite of the standard education system which is rooted in behaviourism (amputation of personal thoughts, feelings and emotions with a strong stance on positive and negative reinforcement). Hence, why I am choosing to take my teaching outside of the classroom. However, I understand that there is a place for passing tests and knowing certain curriculums and so I will teach you how to understand the curriculums and success criterion you may be following. If you work with me you can expect to be placed in the centre of very personalised learning and we will build great rapport. My personal goals are to become proficient in Japanese and become a Japanese teacher and translator and to write and publish a novel or ten in English (I love language). I am available to tutor English which aligns with the school curriculum and beyond for all ages and as a TEFL tutor for anyone who desires to learn how to speak English. If you want to write for creative purposes I am also here to help you. Let's write poems and stories together! I am highly flexible and have a sharp eye for identifying students' unique needs. I can work effectively and happily with ages 5 - adult. I am a big believer in celebrating both similarities and differences in people and learning styles - I will always make it work for you. I look forward to meeting you. Selina

I'm extremely passionate about literature and language and their application in the expression of our ideas, whether it be in a difficult exam or for our own pleasure. Over the eleven years of my tutoring experience, teaching abroad, and as a qualified secondary school teacher in outstanding schools, I've always endeavoured to communicate this to my students. I teach a wide spectrum of skills and topics. This ranges from the nitty-gritty of exam preparation to appreciation of the wider beauty of the rich heritage of English, and I'm confident you too will see the incredible versatility of this important subject, whether you want to pass exams or perhaps take it to higher education and beyond.

I use a very flexible, student-centred approach, catering to the individual needs of students who learn differently. I believe building confidence and self-advocacy goes hand-in-hand with teaching skills and metacognitive strategies. With over 3 decades’ experience working with dyslexic, AD/HD, Aspergers, gifted and other neurodivergent and exceptional students, I focus on discovering the STRENGTHS of pupils to mitigate their needs. All students learn differently and all students can learn once we find their cognitive style. I hold an MSEd in Exceptional Educational Needs and a BA in English as well as a PGCert in Information & Library Studies. I have worked mainly at the secondary and High School level teaching in all subjects. I specialise in the American Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum and in research and essay-writing skill development. I prefer to use a "live workshopping" approach using Zoom whiteboard or the Edit-Suggest tool in Google docs so students can follow my written editorial suggestions in a real-time 1:1 intensive session while I simultaneously provide oral feedback. My students typically come to me suffering mediocre attainment, low confidence, and untapped potential but leave/graduate with huge improvements beyond parental expectations--as my recommendations will confirm. Over my 30-year career, I have helped hundreds to achieve success. I also specialise in preparation for American examinations including College Board AP (Advanced Placement) ACT, SAT and PSAT exam preparation. I am also qualified in psycho-educational and psychometric testing by the BPS (British Psychological Society) and can provide pre-diagnostic testing and screening for suspected dyslexia and dyscalculia and IQ testing for cognitively gifted and twice-exceptional students. I have enhanced DBS clearance, having worked for many years in independent schools and with HNW families in Surrey. As a teacher as well as the parent of a teen with dyslexia who is also gifted, I have a unique insight into the strengths and needs of twice-exceptional students and familiar with the emotional sensitivity that such students often possess. I have worked mainly within the International school system with “Third Culture Kids” and dependents of high net-worth foreign nationals and expats living in the Greater London area. I am happy to supply references from previous clients (parents of clients) upon request.

I am an extremely experienced and fully qualified Secondary English Teacher. I have worked in the OFSTED graded outstanding Girls Grammar School close to my home, Westcliff High School for Girls, Essex, the Academy Grammar School, Greensward Academy, Hockley and a Maintained Secondary School, The Fitzwimarc School in Rayleigh, Essex. My positions have included Teacher of English, Head of Faculty, Head of Department English & Media Studies. I am currently tutoring for GCSE English Language and English Literature. I am a qualified examiner for AQA and I am currently teaching English Literature and Language for all the main exam boards, AQAm Edexcel, WJC. My pupils this year achieved outstanding results! I am so proud of them all! Pupils predicted a Level 4 in April by their schools went onto achieve Level 8 in the space of 2 months! Anything is possible! My qualifications are a BA (hons) Humanities, Dip HE Communication Studies, MA Ed., and Secondary Post Graduate Certificate Masters Level. I believe the fundamental and crucially important role I can play in teaching my pupils is the ability for them to feel confident in their own abilities! Learning is about finding out, experimenting and trying new ways, it's about enjoyment and ‘light-bulb’moments. My pupils believe they can achieve and they will, to raise the bar from self-doubt to belief for some pupils removes the barriers to learning that they may have faced for many years. I am confident that one to one tutoring is a very necessary part of learning and I tutor many of my grammar school pupils to ensure they gain the best possible grades they are capable of achieving. Some of my pupils have been really worried that they cannot pass their English examinations at all, or "don't understand the text" , a common complaint, but with my support have been able to achieve more than they thought possible. With time, patience and care pupils have mastered the skills to succeed!

I am a journalism and creative writing graduate with a passion for literature and the English language. I have tutored primary and secondary school students for more than three years both in Australia and the United Kingdom. My specialisms include English, English Language and Literature. As an experienced writer/proof-reader I also have a knack for assessing writing skills. I understand the pressure of A Levels and entrance exams. I believe most students benefit from one-on-one tutoring in a comfortable, private environment away from the classroom. I find the most efficient way to help students is by highlighting key areas in which they're struggling and focusing on improving their work a step at a time through practice, which should be done both under exam conditions and in a more relaxed atmosphere. I plan to study a PGCE in Secondary English in September 2018.

I specialise in the following: - Ages 10 - 18 ENGLISH LITERATURE: - Poetry - Shakespeare - The novel - Fiction and Drama - Literal and inferential comprehension - Critical reading - Evaluation of a writer’s choice of vocabulary, grammatical and structures features. - Comparing and contrasting texts - Revision/exam preparation and coursework/dissertation help ENGLISH LANGUAGE: - Critical reading and comprehension - Summary and synthesis - Evaluation of a writer’s choice of vocabulary, form, grammatical and structural features. - Comparing and Contrasting texts - Producing clear and coherent text - Writing for impact and purpose (selecting, organising and emphasising facts, ideas and key points; citing evidence and quotation effectively and pertinently to support views; creating emotional impact; using language creatively, imaginatively and persuasively, including rhetorical devices. - Creative Writing (in the form of "workshopping" and experimentation fo devices and ideas.)
