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 published writer/poet and also run a successful small publishing press, focusing on writing in the experimental calibre. My experience tutoring began working with a fifteen year old girl a 2 years ago who was struggling with social anxiety and panic disorder. She was unable to go to school and I stepped in to help her pass her GCSEs. The whole experience shaped how I could help influence the student in an engaging and sensitive way, and inspire them to enjoy developing their knowledge. Also, as an experienced editor, it is in my nature to help the individual try and find their best way to express themselves in both an academic and creative manner. 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.)

I am an experienced tutor, with over 10 years of experience. I am passionate about good quality teaching and a strong advocate for education. I enjoy sharing my subject knowledge and helping my students achieving their goal through rigorous work and emotional investment. I have a BA, MA and MSc in History and related subjects (Philosophy, Religious Studies, Cultures) and I am currently completing my PhD in the History of Emotions. As a trained historian, I am able to see the bigger picture, putting pieces together, with the strongest eye for details. Usually, I am excellent in identifying and addressing problems, especially in regards to my students or my classroom environment. My students have described me as a ‘rigorous’ and ‘inspiring’ tutor. I am Italian and I have been educated both in Italy (BA, MSc) and in the UK (MA, PhD). I have a wide, deep, solid knowledge of Humanities, particularly History, Cultural Studies and Religious Studies. I am fluent in English, Italian (mother tongue), Spanish (University level, DELE diploma) and French. I have also studied Ancient Greek and Latin. I can teach a History lesson starting from the etymology of a word, quoting literary texts and primary sources, using several different historiographical approaches. On the contrary, I can teach Spanish and Italian not only focusing on linguistic functions or grammar, but also explaining the meaning and use of the language through the culture and history of Spain and Italy. I would say my teaching approach is Socratic and solidly interdisciplinary. Essentially, I am comfortable teaching any subject in the Humanities. Currently I am working as an Assistant Tutor at the University of Warwick, where I teach a module focused on Early Modern European History, which is my area of expertise. I have experience in planning and delivering lessons, marking assignments, monitoring students' progress, being aware of health and safety as well as pastoral issues related to my students. During the last two years I have also worked for a charity called 'The Brilliant Club', delivering academic style programmes in schools, to promote higher educations for young people with high potentiality but disadvantaged backgrounds. I regularly teach Italians to kids in my local area and, when still residing in Italy, I worked for several years as private tutor for private families, assisting kids aged 7 to 17.

I am a Cambridge graduate, with vast experience as both a classroom teacher and private tutor. After my graduation in 2012, I worked as a Teacher of Classics at a private school in Glasgow. During this time, uptake for my subjects increased dramatically, and pupils consistently gained top grades under my supervision, including a full class of A grades in Latin during my final year in this role. I was also involved with university applications, with a focus on Oxbridge. This included helping to structure and proofread personal statements, assisting with college choices and giving mock interviews in a variety of subjects. In 2015, I took up a position as a traveling homeschool tutor, working with two teenage bilingual brothers. I was their tutor for English, Latin, Classical Civilisation and History, as well as SAT Reading and Writing. This experience of tutoring while travelling the world required a high level of organisation and motivation to keep my students on track despite the distractions of continuous travel. The boys' level of English improved hugely during my three years with them, and culminated in the eldest student being accepted to his U.S. university of choice. I have been tutoring online for six years, and, as an experienced online tutor, I have developed methods specific to online teaching which ensure that my students remain engaged and motivated. I utilise screen-sharing and Powerpoint while working online with my students, to keep lessons lively and enjoyable. As a highly organised and efficient professional, students always get the most out of their lessons, and I have a consistent track record of improving grades across a range of subjects and levels. I engage quickly with students of all ages and provide a fun learning environment where students feel able to make the mistakes which will enable them to grow as learners. I enjoy getting to know my students well, so that I can find out what their learning styles are, and how best to support them on their learning journey. As an intelligent quick thinker, I am easily adaptable to a range of subjects and situations, with a proven track record of getting the best out of my students and meeting high client expectations.

I have been teaching students of schools in my neighbourhood and even my university fellows back in my undergraduate; I specialise in Economics and Geography. All my students have always been satisfied and all of them shared similar feedback that I make sure that they understand properly and they can ask me questions as many as they want. One of the reasons I have been chosen over others is my ability to give special treatment and my availability for my students. The results of my students give me great satisfaction and I ensure that I make the money they spent worth it by coming up to the expectations of their parents. I consider myself to have a proper way of teaching which is not only because of my experience but the number of diverse subjects I have been taught and the number of different countries where I have studied. I have attended school in Austria and Pakistan and did my Olevels and Alevels in Pakistan. I am currently doing my Masters from London. I have taught a variety of subjects to different levels of students and most of all I am very friendly in nature and I have never been harsh to any of my students. I believe in teaching strategy as the key not to pressure the student or scold them to do the work

I was born and educated in England. I have resided in Canterbury, Leeds, Oxford, London, Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Oswestry. I gained five 'A Levels' (AAABC) at Notre Dame 6th Form College (Leeds) before attending Oxford University where I obtained Degrees in Philosophy and French. I proceeded to do Postgraduate studies in London where I was semi-resident at the British Library (1993-1998). I have been a widely published author since 1999, being the author of dozens of essays and monographs in Philosophy, Comparative Literature, Poetry and Psychology. I am co-author of the self-help book 'Reading in No Time' and author of the forthcoming publication 'French in No Time' (2020). He is a member of MENSA, the BAJ (British Assoc. of Journalists) and A3M (Academy of the 3rd Millennium). I am currently editor of the 'Nobel Prize Collection' for Living Time Books. I have taught pupils from KS1 to Postgraduate Level in the UK and abroad. I undertake an equal amount of group-teaching (lecturing/seminars/classroom) and individual tutoring (mentoring/coaching/private tutorials). I have taught in Switzerland (Geneva, Basel), France (Paris), Germany (Berlin, Munich), Italy (Milan) Poland (Krakow, Warsaw) and Slovakia (Bratislava). I am a native English speaker and also a fluent speaker of French and German. I am highly experienced in teaching children and adults with special educational needs - including Autistic Spectrum Disorders (Autism, Aspergers, Pathological Demand Avoidance), ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and other developmental conditions. I am quoted as saying: "Everyone can learn - it doesn't matter how differently we do so!" I specialize in GCSEs, A Levels, Entrance Exams and assistance with Dissertations, Essays, Theses & Coursework. I have explained my approach to teaching in the following way: "With every person that I teach, whether they are before me as an individual or as part of a group, first of all I take time to observe the way in which they learn - their own particular mode of processing information. Then, once I have understood their learning processes - be they visual, verbal, concrete, mathematical, or a combination of these - I customize my own teaching approach to that student's optimum mode of intake. This usually goes a large way toward maximizing their learning experience. What I find is of vital importance in the learning journey - and which is largely responsible for making it successful - is identifying with crystal clarity the exact goals which are to be attained. I make sure that my students do not lose sight of their goal and I make sure that their 'will-to-achieve' stays at a top level throughout the educational process. Without a goal, motivation falters".

Hi, thank you for landing on my profile. I am a native Italian and Chinese tutor, and I have been teaching languages (including English, French and Spanish) for 10 years, in person and online. I am passionate about empowering my students and designing classes that allow them to learn quickly whilst having fun. With the right method, anyone can learn a language, and I am here to help you find out what works best for you. Of course, if you have a textbook or a specific curriculum, we can follow that.

About me, I spent 25 years between Europe and China and I am currently a PhD researcher in Travel&Tourism. I also work as a tour director organising and leading educational tours for schools and private groups.

I have graduated from Queen Mary University of London with a High 2:1. I have started doing an LLM in Energy and Natural Resources Law at Queen Mary University of London. I have taught more than 20 students, particularly prepared them for exams and helped them with courseworks. I also taught children, assisted them for learning a new language (both French and Turkish). I have different tutoring techniques for children: I prefer teaching them by playing games and having interactive conversations. Thus, I am native in Turkish, fluent in French and English, intermediate in Spanish. 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. Finally, I strongly believe that informing the learner of objectives is crucial.

What can an A Level tutor do for me?

An A Level English Language tutor will improve your confidence and knowledge in preparation for your A Level English exams and coursework. With a private tutor, you can work to get an A in your English Language A Level and secure the grades you need for further study.

How does tutoring work?

For English, a private tutor will help you hone your comparative writing skills, your readings of fiction and non-fiction texts and show you how to write an A grade essay. Working 1-1 with an English Language tutor means you get to ask the questions you don't get to in a busy classroom and cover topics which you didn't fully understand in school.

Our English tutors are all experienced, friendly and highly qualified. You might like to look through several tutor profiles before you choose one; take a look at tutor's reviews, teaching style and experience before deciding.
