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.

The school I work at is a specialist school in both Maths and English, which means I have developed particular expertise in maths mastery, Read Write Inc phonics and Key Stage 2 reading comprehension. I'll make sure lessons are fun, practical and engaging to keep your child motivated and focussed during our lessons.

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 a very passionate and patient tutor whose approach focuses on encouraging independent thought and interest. I have tutored privately for over three years and strive to make teaching fun and engaging, adapting to each individual student's needs. I studied English (MA, 2:1) at the University of St Andrews, following which I completed a masters (MLitt) in Creative Writing- Writing for Performance, also at St Andrews. I then went on to train as an actor at the Oxford School of Drama. I attended a grammar school (Dr Challoner's High School for Girls) local to where I grew up, following which I had the privilege of going to St Paul's Girls' School for sixth form, where I achieved: A* in English Literature, A in Italian, A in French, and B in AS Maths. I also have a certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language, and have previously taught beginners' Ballroom and Latin American Dancing. By nature of my creative writing masters, you have to be flexible in terms of what a director wants from a piece of new writing, and from my training in acting, you have to constantly react to the person in front of you, whether it be the actors you're working with, the director or the audience. This has fed into my flexible and wholly interactive teaching style. Learning should be fun, and I encourage independent thinking, creativity and the articulation of both, whatever the subject. I love my subjects and love sharing that with students. My primary interests, understandably, are literature and theatre, and I spend my much of my free time reading, watching film and TV, or at the theatre. Other interests include Ballroom and Latin American dancing, cooking, yoga and travelling. TESTIMONIALS KS2 English and English as a Foreign Language “Cara has tutored my son for six months. She is a responsible, hardworking, and decent teacher. During this period, she has helped a lot with my son's English studies, and my son really likes to learn from her.” KS3 English “Over her time with my child, my observations were that Cara’s personal philosophy were towards: dedication and passion for delivering noticeable improvement, commitment to exhibiting integrity and trust, and focus on the child achieving excellent results. Benefits of her tutoring manifested in the child’s performance in school.” GCSE English Literature and Language, and Common Entrance Scholarship “I can wholeheartedly support Cara as a tutor; she is first class in every way and made the subject accessible for my son who is more math and science oriented. With Cara’s help, my son got an excellent score on both his scholarship exam and GCSE, way beyond what he expected. More the point, he learned to better structure his answers and provide the types of citation and details that had been lacking. He grew in confidence that he could tackle pretty much any prose or English essay. We are deeply grateful to Cara. She always came exceedingly prepared, encouraged my son to be better prepared and helped him in supportive and confidence building ways.” GCSE English Literature and Language “As an English and Literature tutor for my Year 11 child, Cara proved herself to be knowledgeable in the subjects and was able to impact the knowledge in the child. Her character and style made my child look forward to the sessions.” A level English Literature “Cara was and is a very understanding tutor. She was able to make me feel a lot more confident in myself when it came to English Literature. Considering I had been struggling with it until I decided to get a tutor, she always made me not give up so easily. Her teaching methods were effective and made the subject more interesting. She would always make sure that I would be the one to answer a question or think of a suggestion instead of answering it for me. She always gave me time to think and was always open to anything I would suggest even if it was not always correct. I definitely ended up enjoying my English lessons with Cara more than having them at school. I was studying with her for almost 6 months and we managed to get me from a grade F to a grade C which was my goal. I would not have passed my A level and got into my first choice if I had not started studying with Cara.”

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.

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.

Hi! If you're looking for help learning anything to do with the English language then you've come to the right person! I have studied English for both GCSE and A-Level, alongside History and Philosophy & Ethics (both heavily language based subjects), and I also have a degree in English with First Class Honours from the University of London: Queen Mary, and a CELTA from City and Islington College which allows me to teach English as a second language. My experience working in education began at Lindamood-Bell, a private company which offers a bespoke 1-1 tutoring service in English and Maths, specialising particularly in helping students with behavioural and learning difficulties. This gave a strong foundation in working 1-1, with a focus on ensuring that my teaching style can be adaptive to the needs of the student whoever they may be. After leaving Lindamood-Bell I went on to teach English as a second language in both classrooms and 1-1, online and in person with a full range of age groups and skill levels. Although my experience is limited compared to older teachers, I have dipped my toes in all aspects of English education and am always eager to provide the best service possible to my students. For me English is not just a way to make money but also a passion. In my free time I love to read all kinds of texts as well as write, and I also enjoy learning languages with intermediate fluency in Italian. I truly believe in the enriching power of English language and literature, and always hope to impart that enthusiasm to my students. If you'd like to know more about me and possible ways that we can work together then please don't hesitate to get in touch!

I have been a teacher of both English Language and Literature for the past 5 years. I am proud to have been a help to a number of students who have gone on to successfully sit for their GCSEs. I am particularly experienced with the AQA GCSE exam format, but I am qualified to teach all exam boards. I am currently reading for my PhD at the University of York, where I am studying English romantic literature, with a particular focus on the study of Keats. I completed my PGCE at the University of Nottingham. However, I did my BA at the University of Malta as that is where I grew up before moving to the UK a few years ago. I like to personalise my teaching to suit the needs of my students and will do all I can to ensure that I am clear and well understood. I prefer a more informal, conversational approach to teaching where possible and, while I cannot guarantee success, I can promise to do my very best to help boost confidence, ability and enjoyment in both English Language and Literature.
