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 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 an energetic and creative Masters-educated tutor with a passion for teaching. I started tutoring while I was in high school and focused specifically on CIE A-Levels as well as UCAS and Personal Statement advice. I successfully secured places in some of London's top universities and can help other students do so. I have 4 years experience tutoring and believe that my strength lies in forging personal connections with my tutees which helps me better understand their needs, not so long ago I was their peer meaning I can thoroughly emphasise with their concerns and struggles. To see the best results, I believe that study programmes must be tailored to each student, with realistic and achievable milestones and goals being outlined. So far, the students I tutored attained or surpassed their academic goals, achieving A's in the A-Level exams I tutored them for and securing places at top UK universities.

Hi everyone, I'm Ian, a fully qualified (PGCE with QTS) English and Media teacher with 15+ years of consistently 'outstanding' teaching in a variety of positions and workplaces around the world. My specialist skillset not only focuses on mainstream exam preparation work (be that A-Level, GCSE, or SATs) but also in Special Education Needs. I have extensive experience helping those with additional needs succeed in gaining mainstream qualifications. My methods often involve highlighting the options that can be afforded through non-traditional, more engaging online environments but are equally at home with established practises as well. I specialise in GCSEs and entrance exams for English related subjects as well as Film and Media from GCSE to degree. I also offer English as an Second or Other Language (ESOL) for learners aged between 3 and adult. I have a background in education technology and have been part of teams devising and delivering content across the curriculum that helps learners achieve their potential in non-traditional settings. I am currently working on a PhD at the University of Leeds in videogames, neuroscience, and learning and am continually feeding the findings from this into my teaching provision. I genuinely care about offering opportunity to all my learners and take great pride in being able to help students of all ages develop their confidence and succeed in their ambitions. If you or one of you family require help with a subject or a style of learning, feel free to get in touch. Do please message prior to booking a trial session; it's helpful to know what you're looking for and how you like to learn before we look to speak further. Thanks!

I attained a B.A. Hons Degree in English Literature and Language (2:1) from the modern Humanities-focused, Newman University in Birmingham (established in 2013). As a result, I excelled in my degree and have learned from the best. This has instilled within me the need and passion to continue my learning in everything English Literature and everything English Language, which I also intend to instil within my students. I have a lot of experience, from working with little primary school toddlers in France, to working closely tutoring a group of University students last year. This year I have mainly been working with A Level students though who I teach varies - I like variety. My aim to guide my students into achieving the high grades is unwavering and my enjoyment of the subject tends to be infectious. Furthermore, I have SEN experience with a Higher Distinction qualification in Advanced Special Educational Needs. I am also currently studying TESOL. I have experience in News Journalism and writing in various forms from poetry to Science Fiction. I am completely up to date with the new specifications, across all the exam boards, have created many resources for them and have inspired confidence in my students due to my in depth knowledge of them. I believe that a positive mind renders positive results so I will always be the student's mentor, coach and personal cheerleader.

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".

I have taught Latin, Ancient Greek, classical studies and English at GCSE, A-level and university level for twenty-five years. I’ve taught beginners up to Common Entrance at prep schools in Surrey and London for fourteen years, and SAT exams for US universities. My students, as well as gaining scholarships to top schools, have gone to Cambridge, Oxford, Bryn Mawr, and top universities. I’m experienced in online tuition (Skype/Facetime/ WhatsApp). I enjoy sharing my love of language, grammar, literature, history, mythology and philosophy. I hope to find quirky ways to give insights into the ancient world and its impact on the present. I particularly love helping students overcome blocks and difficulties to rediscover the joys of language and and the magic of ancient cultures. I have taught English as a Foreign Language in Brazil, Italy and the UK, from beginners to proficiency level, so have a particular awareness of difficulties with second language learning. I teach Creative Writing at University of Portsmouth, and I’ve given workshops in libraries, universities, schools, prisons and theatres. I have also translated ancient and mediaeval texts for academic, legal and medical purposes.

I graduated with a First in English from Trinity College, Cambridge. I am able to tutor both in person and online. I have tutored over 300 hours in the past three years, at all levels from 7+ to A-Level, and in exam boards from AQA and the other main GCSE-A-Level boards to ISEB to the UKISET for international students. I have taught both English and international students, and so am familiar with the varieties of difficulty that students can encounter and a variety of approaches for addressing them. I enjoy re-examining the elementals of the subject through tutoring. I aim to strike a balance between engaging, personal commitment to making the student see and realise a passion for reading and writing, alongside the necessity of navigating exam strictures and requirements - without making them seem restrictive or off-putting. I very much have enjoyed my experiences with small-group, Cambridge "supervision"-style teaching to students on various theatre tours that I have done during my time at Cambridge and this led me into thinking that similar, informal one-on-one teaching would be similarly rewarding. My students have all registered often substantial improvements, and no student of mine for 7-13+ has ever failed to get into a school of their choice, while no GCSE/A-Level student has failed to at least meet their desired grades. One student gaining top marks across the board after struggling with her confidence before our lessons. I continue to be asked back by different families if they feel they need a boost. I'm happy to provide references from individual students and parents as requested.

I am a third year PhD student based in the English and Comparative Literature department at King’s College London. I have been a teacher in this department for the past couple of years giving me extensive experience lecturing and delivering seminar style teaching to undergraduate and postgraduate students. I have been marking essays and examinations offering students advice on improving the strength of their argument, critical reading and analysis, and structural features. I have taught English as a foreign language to non-native speakers abroad in Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam. This has given me valuable skills at increasing the conversational skills, vocabulary range, and correcting grammar, diction, and sentence construction in students of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. I have volunteered in primary and secondary schools as a tutor, helping students with special needs and learning difficulties who are struggling with English. I am a naturally patient and open-minded teacher who ensures each lesson is tailor made to suit each student’s personal needs and learning motivations. I have high standards in the hard work and respect I expect from my students. I am motivated by the progress my students make and am willing to adapt and improve my teaching strategies to help students achieve the academic success they deserve.

I have excellent subject knowledge, having achieved my degree and masters degree from the University of Leeds. I’m also currently studying for a PhD at the University of Huddersfield, so I know what it is like to be a learner myself! I have 15 years teaching experience and a proven track record of helping students of all abilities achieve results above and beyond expectations. I’ve loved every minute of my teaching career and now want to dedicate more time to one to one tuition. I strongly believe that the personal and detailed level of support you can get in one to one tutoring can really make a difference to academic success. I have much experience teaching GCSE English and I have most recently specialised in the sixth form sector with 12 years’ experience teaching A Level English Language, A Level English Literature and A Level English Combined. My students, of varying ability levels, have consistently achieved results well above target and national averages year on year. I strongly believe in an approach to tutoring that is tailored to the individual to help them achieve the best possible outcomes.I believe in open and shared learning goals, with clear success criteria, where mistakes are welcomed and lots of feedback given. I aim to give lessons which provide opportunities for creativity, challenge, clear structure and most of all empathetic support. I carefully consider how a student learns best and use this to guide my teaching methods, forms of assessment and teaching materials.
