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.’

Hello, My name is Max and I’ve been a teacher for the last 7 years. I specialise in exam entry, writing workshops and improving performance for the 11+, GCSE and A Levels for Language and Literature. I have a warm and compassionate approach, dedicated to each student’s development and academic access. I am proud to say I’ve helped students gain entry to St Paul’s, St Olave’s, Westminister, Dartmouth Grammar, Blackheath High, Henrietta Barnett, South Hampstead High and many others across London; sometimes helping them to win scholarships. I’ve helped GCSE and A Level students improve their grades from levels 6 to 8 and 9, working within the curriculum, homeschool students and students with learning difficulties. I am also an award winning writer (stage and screen) and know, as well as the joy of writing, the importance of academic discipline and articulacy, especially when in preparing for exams and applications. I studied scriptwriting at Central Saint Martins (BA) and playwriting (MA) at Goldsmiths University. That said, I do love to try and help each student find some pleasure in what they’re doing, with a patient and empathetic approach. I also run play and screenwriting workshops for kids and young adults and have worked the Yard Theatre, the Southwark Playhouse, The Gate Theatre, Flux Theatre, Theatre Workout, Actor’s Centre, Eaton House the Manor, Sydenham High, Alexandra Juniors and many other schools and institutions across the country. I have a real belief in the power of learning and the impact it can make on young people’s lives. I do hope I can help with your child’s studies. Scriptwriter Bio I've been a recipient of the Paris Royal Script Award, Screen to Screen Award, the Peggy Ramsay Foundation, a finalist for the Papatango Prize, Samuel French's Off Off-Broadway Award, Theatre Uncut's Prize for Political Writing and recently, the Nick Darke Award. I've also collaborated with the Wooster Group in NYC, The English Theatre Berlin and the British Museum as a dramaturg. I've had plays produced at Theatre 503, King’s Head Theatre, the Arcola, Paines Plough and many others across London. Testimonials I have two daughters, Grace and Alice, and Max, over two years was instrumental in getting them both into the top sets of English and gaining entry to Henrietta Barnett school. I would definitely recommend. Ann Marie, mother of Alice and Grace. Max helped my son, Chindera, get into Eltham College with high marks for his 11+. Pero, mother of Chindera. My daughter, Ann-Maria, has severe autism and struggled with her comprehension and creative writing. Max worked patiently with her and had an excellent relationship, helping her to really blossom. Natalie Campo, mother of Ann-Maria. He is also very professional and communicates progress regularly. Ayodeji Ojo, mother of Faith. Gayatri, although very bright, found her GCSE exams torturous. Max helped her to learn exam techniques which really helped to break everything down. Mina. My son George worked with Max in a homeschool capacity and, although English was far from his favourite subject, Max was the best tutor he ever worked with, improving from a level 4 to a 7 over a year. Sharron Delaney Zayed and Mohammed were helped by Max to improve their Engish language for GCSE. He helped imrpove their scores hugely. Clementine, nanny. Keira moved here from Australia and hated the academic system of her school so was tutored privately. Max helped her find pleasure again in reading while successfully helping her through her academic year as a homeschooled student. Keira’s mum. Max was an excellent employee – hard working, focused, responsive and a pleasure to work with. He had brilliant rapport with the students, and was able to deliver, clear, concise instructions, and work with students of all abilities to guide them through the project. I would definitely recommend him. David Workman, head of Youth Coordination, Southwark Playhouse Max has been working as a tutor and workshop leader for us for a year now and he is one of our most popular tutors.

I’m an experienced teacher and creative writing tutor with a first class degree in Philosophy and Modern Languages from University College London, including one year of study at Université de Paris-Sorbonne. I have five years of teaching experience with individuals, school groups, arts organisations and community groups. I’ve taught English Literature and creative writing with a wide range of organisations, including The Barbican Centre, The Poetry School and The Midnight Run. My specialities are English Literature, English Language and Philosophy. My students have ranged from 11 to 80 years of age, and I have substantial experience working with students for whom English is not their first language. My lessons use creative, engaging techniques tailored to the needs and goals of each student, to help them unlock their true potential. I combine a passion for the subjects with a rigorous focus on exam strategy and study techniques. My goal is to improve grades, and give students both the tools and the drive for long term success. I’m dedicated to fostering a safe, enjoyable learning environment, where we work to identify areas for improvement and map out strategies to maximise . I believe an approach grounded in kindness, patience, and fun is key to helping students with areas of difficulty, reluctance or stress. Overall, I am focused on helping students believe in their own potential and giving them the support they need to meet it. As a recipient of both an academic scholarship and an arts scholarship to my secondary school, I know how life-changing exam success can be. I’m committed to helping students secure those transformative opportunities. I’m also a prize-winning writer, poet and author, with multiple national awards for creative writing. Those include a London Writers Award 2021, the Poetry London Prize 2020 and the Verve Poetry Festival Prize 2020. I’m represented by Harriet Moore of David Higham Literary Agency. This work has redoubled my passion for teaching literature, and I have honed my skills through my years of freelance teaching. I offer high-quality, individually-tailored creative writing lessons. These can optionally be combined with qualification-focused teaching to engage students with English Literature and English Language, and help give them a practical understanding of the nuts and bolts of writing that they can then apply to their school work.

I graduated from Oxford University with a degree in Classics before going on to become a fully-qualified teacher. I worked in the private school sector for nine years before focussing my career on providing high-quality online tuition. I tutor Classical Civilisation, Latin and Ancient History from KS2 all the way to Undergraduate level and I really enjoy bringing this wonderfully diverse and interesting subject to life for my students. I also have experience in tutoring pupils for 11 and 13+ entrance examinations in English and Verbal Reasoning which I find immensely rewarding. I have mentored students as a supervisor for EPQ projects, with a particular focus on written assignments. Helping learners to develop the quality, sophistication and originality of their written work is something that I love to do. Whilst I worked in a school, I was responsible for helping students to prepare their personal statements for UCAS applications, so I have a wealth of experience in that area. I have worked on applications for a wide variety of subjects, including Economics, Medicine, Psychology, History, and many others. I have an excellent track record in helping my students to achieve offers from their first-choice university. As an Oxford graduate myself, I am well-placed to advise applicants on what to expect from the application and interview process. As a tutor, I aim to create thoughtful, innovative and exciting lessons, which support my students as individuals. I am very motivated, hardworking and dependable, and I get a real sense of purpose from helping my students to achieve the best possible grades.

So you're stressed and agonising over that essay you can't write, or that text you can't get your head around? And you have an exam on the way! Maybe you've taken the exam already and didn't quite get the results you wanted. It can be daunting to say the least. But that's where I can help you. While still at school, I tutored some of the younger students and saw real progress and their grades, skills and self-esteem. It's a process I've been developing ever since. After graduating as an actor from Royal Birmingham Conservatoire with a 1st, I spent 5 years working extensively in all levels of the education system, from School Students all the way up to Consultant Doctors. The one thing all of the people I mentor or tutor say again and again is "I never saw it like that" and that's crucial to what I offer. My focus has always been on taking seemingly abstract, complex and confusing material and making it accessible using my unusual slant on things. And I can use this to help you overcome the obstacles in your way. I teach seminars regularly with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust using a text to explore essay technique, thematic ideas and language. I regularly coach students and professionals to develop communication, problem solving and leadership. All while building their confidence with a given skill. My approach is tailored to the individual, and is therefore flexible to suit their needs. But central to it are the following criteria: - Building core competencies relative to the subject: Essay writing, objective analytics, attention to details and how to expand on them. - Identifying obstacles specific to the student. Using coaching techniques, tasks and conversation to help them overcome it. - Exploring alternative view points and helping to develop a wider understanding of the material in context. - Building confidence and competency in bringing knowledge and skills to the subject in question. - Basic exam technique, focus and stress-relief to help think analytically under pressure. - Public speaking, presentation skills and ownership of the text if required for a public speaking role. Outside of the tutoring world my hobbies ( as you might have guessed) include theatre. But I've also developed a bizarre love of gardening, and no I've moved to a big city, I'm really looking forward to the challenge of growing vegetables on my window sill!

I'm a student at Durham University studying English Literature. I received Grade 9s for both Language and Literature at GCSE Level at Woodlands Community College, and I received A*s for both Language and Literature separately in my A-Levels at Barton Peveril College. I'm a first time tutor, but I am quick at learning, and have all the skill sets available to make a good go of things. I will dedicate my time to you and help you as best as I can. I want to help students build their confidence in regards to English, and support them to achieve their goals, whether it be passing exams or becoming more advanced in the subject. I'm hands on, understanding, and will stand by you through the learning process happily until you feel you are ready to take on exams or branch out in your knowledge. I am more than happy to help with both GCSE and A-Level students. I can create resources that are accessible and helpful to you, as well as create practice questions/take past paper questions and mark the responses accordingly to build up confidence in an exam environment. I will adapt my methods to suit the student as best as possible so they get the best results available.

I am a current teacher and I have been teaching for eleven years. I first started tutoring at the age of sixteen, when I was recruited by the company that supported me with tutoring. Therefore I have nineteen years of tutoring experience! No student I have ever taught has been the same, therefore I place priority on individually tailored lessons. Most students come to me with a weakness or lack of confidence in the subject they need support with and I throughly enjoy seeing them sail through exams because they have been shown the appropriate technique and exactly how to hit those top marks. It's been so enjoyable having students and parents message me straight after exams in regards to how confident they felt. As a tutor I regularly check in with parents/guardians with monthly reports and examples of work so you can see the progress for yourselves. However, the support doesn't stop once students have sat their exams. I offer free UCAS and personal statement support to previous tutees to support them in their ongoing learning journey.

Hi there! I'm Ilinca, and I come from a family of teachers. I have learned the essential skills one must hold to make lessons interactive, enjoyable and informative. I aim to encourage students and help them build their confidence while improving their current skills. My teaching method varies on each individual’s preference and goals. For adults, classes are more structured and based on particular aims and goals. When working with children, I often use visual material to boost engagement. Before moving to Scotland for my degree, I attended an international school in Germany, where I lived for 11 years. I graduated as valedictorian in Criminology and Sociology, finishing with a 1st-degree classification. I also hold a B2 DELE certification, having studied Spanish for over 9 years. I am TEFL certified, passing the examinations with a 95%. I have experience teaching English, Spanish and German to both children and adults. In September, I will begin my professional teaching qualification in Modern Foreign Languages for secondary school students in England.

I recently graduated from Cambridge with a 2:1 in Natural Sciences and would love to share my passion for learning with others by supporting students to achieve their full potential. During my time as a UCAS tutor, I was able to clearly explain advanced scientific concepts by adjusting my teaching methods to suit the unique learning style of each student and applied my TEFL qualification to support English second language students, all of whom went on to receive offers from Russell Group Universities. Whilst tutoring an 11-year-old boy in Maths, he raised his average grade from a C to an A. Having been elected as the Welfare Officer for the Cambridge University Water Polo Team, I emphasise the importance of mental health and aim to promote the emotional wellbeing of all my students. My pet Labrador Goldie may also make occasional drop-ins in the background of tutoring sessions to provide a little well-needed dopamine. :)

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.

After having taken time off to have my first child, I am now looking for tutoring roles where I can share my subject knowledge. I have a strong academic background, hold a master’s degree in Myth, Cosmology & the Sacred (Canterbury Christ Church University) and have over two years’ teaching experience. This, combined with my ability to communicate and listen, means I am able to develop and maintain good relationships with students and parents alike.
