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 multilinguist with considerable experience in teaching French and Spanish to a diverse range of students. I have a 100% success rate in terms of my students improving their academic grades. I am extremely passionate about my subject and committed to understanding and engaging with each new student's learning needs. I tailor my individual teaching programmes to ensure each student is able to develop and move confidently towards their goal, whether it be academic or personal. I choose to work with students who are committed to working towards their goal - they don't have to love the subject to begin with, they just have to want to improve, the love comes later, often when they discover how simple it can be and they start to see improvements in their ability and understanding! Among my previous students are Yas, a Spanish GCSE student who went from a predicted D to receiving an A* overall in 14 months, Roderick, who with no prior teaching since his French GCSE 16 months before we began, received an A* at French A Level after 7 months of home-schooling with me and Kendall, a French IB student who went from grade 3/4 to achieving a final grade 6/7 in 20 months - she called me up in Guatemala on results day so I knew it must be good news! Testimonials: "James tutored both my daughters for GCSE Spanish and they both received A*. This was particularly impressive with my eldest daughter who was on a Grade D at the end of Year 10. James accelerated Yasmin's learning rapidly over 6 months in Year 11, and changed her attitude towards Spanish from a boring difficult subject to her favourite! Aside from his in-depth understanding of the curriculum and effective teaching techniques, James is a lovely person with a great sense of humour, and the girls really enjoyed his company. We'd highly recommend James to anyone wanting to improve their grades and language skills." Zaya F - Spanish GCSE "James was simply brilliant in giving my son confidence in his ability to learn languages, which ultimately led to GCSE success. He possesses a magical ability to build self-esteem. Invaluable. Fabulous. Very highly recommended." Donna G – French & Spanish IGCSE "James tutored me in French for just over a year for the international baccalaureate. Marked out of 7, I originally achieved 3-4s in all my examinations. James helped with reading, writing and oral presentations. He helped me to increase my confidence in speaking and also taught me invaluable techniques for verb conjugations. In the end I was able to achieve a 6/7 in my final IB results. Thank you James !" Kendall U - French International Baccalaureate "James was instrumental in getting my son to an A* for his Spanish A Level this year. Over a period of 8 months James worked to improve Omar’s original predicted grade of B, focussing on some core grammar which had been missed by the school and developing his reading, writing and oral skills. James often made himself available at short notice to review and offer feedback on Omar’s practice essays for the literature part of the course. We are delighted with the result and with the high level of professional service that James provides. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend." Mehta F - Spanish A Level “My daughter Chloe was struggling with Spanish during year 11, she failed her mock and was really worried. We found James and he worked steadily with her for the three months leading up to her GCSE. I’m delighted to say she achieved a 6(B)!! Incredible...a fail to a B in only 25 hours tutoring! Thank you James, she couldn’t have done it without you!” Beth W – Spanish GCSE James tutored my daughter for just over a year at French Pre-U. Our aim was to secure a comfortable distinction. James knew the syllabus inside out and ensured no stone had been left unturned in her knowledge and exam technique. We were delighted but not too surprised when the final result came back a D1. We’re thrilled with James, his approach and the care he brings to each session. Such a star. Mikael J – Cambridge Pre U French "James is an amazing teacher. He got my daughter to a B in French GCSE from a predicted D, and my son to a B in Spanish GCSE from a predicted E. This helped my daughter to get to UCL and put the Russell Group within my son's reach. His teaching style is unique. Within minutes of arrival, he had won the respect of both my teenagers. He made himself available at weekends and in the evenings both in person and over Skype. I am so grateful for his help. I highly recommend him." Rachel G - French & Spanish GCSE "James is an outstanding teacher - he taught my son to find his own motivation & the confidence he needed to excel in Spanish. He brings the language to life and creates a self sufficiency in study habits that was wonderful to observe - the GCSE process was made palatable and non daunting ! I would wholly recommend him to anyone looking for a tutor that cares about the child in the most holistic sense and leaves them with the skills to tackle languages independently post their time with him - he was an absolute star !" Shaleen Y - Spanish IGCSE "James is one of the best tutors I have ever met. He is clearly passionate about teaching and has such an engaging and enthusiastic manner. Anyone who is lucky enough to come across James has found a true gem. I cannot recommend him highly enough." Helen S - Spanish GCSE

I am a graduate, with a high 2:1 in BSc Anthropology from University College London (UCL). I have a wealth of experience in writing academic papers, conducting research, and experience of professional content writing within public relations. I have experience in teaching both KS2 and KS3 students in English language and English literature leading up to GCSE and IGCSE exams. I also have experience in tutoring undergraduate anthropology students. I recognise the importance in celebrating the individual, and aiming to identify and strengthen their skills in writing, comprehension, essay structure and using linguistic frameworks to identify language techniques. I believe abilities should be recognised, and I have the confidence to be able to identify a student’s strengths and weaknesses, and be able to tailor my methods to meet the individual needs. I believe it is important as a tutor to be able to find ways to engage the student in the subject, and actively build a strong relationship. This is effective for achieving a personalised approach to create an environment where the student feels comfortable with the learning styles, which is paramount to achieving excellent results. I have extensive experience with tailoring methods and incorporating different teaching styles. As a tutor of small classes, as a 1:1 tutor, and as an undergraduate mentor, I carry the skills, experience and insight which are essential for effective learning. Over the last two years, I have worked with students across the ages of 11-16 teaching English language as a foreign language, and tutoring students in preparation for their IGCSE and GCSE English Literature and English language exams. I have worked in the public relations industry delivering high content press releases and high profile blogs for campaigns. As such, I am confident in my ability at balancing the rigours of tutoring to develop English language and English literature skills and techniques to succeed in exams, whilst knowing how to engage the subject with student’s interests.

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.

My name is Lara and I am a tutor from Maidenhead, England. Qualifications: B.A Art History B.A French Literature and Language Masters degree (MRes) in Assyriology Current PhD Candidate French and English: I would love to teach you if you would like to learn English or French language aspects such as grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and spelling. I know I can help you with your speaking fluency and accuracy. I have been teaching languages for two years at a variety of levels. Most of my students improve their language skills and can express themselves and their ideas concisely and effectively. I do this by motivating my students with new teaching approaches that focus on communicative activities. I want my student to feel they have the confidence to speak the language in the real world. I also work with GCSE and A-Level students on exam response and literature analysis. I specialise in helping students identify and understand language devices. Geography: Similarly to higher-level English and French, we look at exam questions and examiners reports to highlight the skills and knowledge needed to attain the top grades. I use exam papers to identify areas of weakness so we can then work on specific skills or topics. We can then revise topics and make revision materials. Specialist areas include coasts and earth hazards, but I have experience teaching all modules. I also offer tuition in Art History and Physical Education. I will provide my students with positive and constructive feedback, and an achievable goal timeline. If you want to study with me, you can contact me and schedule your lesson. Hope to hear from you soon.
