Currently, I am a Ph.D student in creative writing living in Manchester but I am available for Zoom lessons only. 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 4 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 creatively. I specialise in the following: 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.) (If necessary, I have the experience to help students who suffer from anxiety disorder and issues surrounding self-confidence. Providing a tutoring experience that is aligned with the students personal needs and motivations) Please feel free to message me if you have any queries.

I am a graduate of Oxford University. I tutored throughout my studies, and consequently have 9 years of experience - both in the UK and abroad. I teach English Language and Literature, History, Latin and Greek and French up to A-level, as my main subjects. I have also specialised in tutoring the humanities up to A-Level/ IB Level tutoring, including politics, religious studies and history. I have taught at all levels, having worked with students as young as 5 years-old, through to A-Level students and adult learners. I have experience in preparing students for the ISEB Pre-tests, for 11+, 13+ and common entrance - English and maths. I have successfully coached many students through the application procedures to top UK independent schools, including Eton College and Harrow School, and to top universities including Cambridge University and University College London. I am a committed tutor and have consistently produced excellent results. I believe that effective teaching must focus on the student’s needs and must be engaging and fun. I always strive to bring the best out in my students.

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 an engaging and proactive personal tutor with 12 years of experience in tutoring English, Drama, and Creative Writing. I work with GCSE, A-Level and undergraduate students, predominantly on their English Literature studies I adapt every session to the specific needs of the student and ensure that each lesson is successful in obtaining their personal goals. In Literature tuition, we will focus on analytical skills and essay writing (considering structure, context, and critical analysis). We will also compile a revision portfolio, which greatly aids the student when preparing for their exams, allowing them to review their work in a clear, compartmentalized, and accessible manner. For many years, I worked as a school tutor with students from year 2 to year 13. This has provided me with a strong and comprehensive understanding of academic demands and the school curriculum. Additionally, I have experience teaching KS1 and KS2 subjects and have extensive experience working with SEN students. I hold a Masters Degree in Creative Writing and have led many writer's workshops for young people. I run a theatre company in London and have taught workshops and classes with drama students, varying in age from 9 to 19. I am a positive, reliable, supportive, and fun teacher who works hard to ensure that each student is able to learn in an enjoyable and accessible manner.

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 Martha, a recent Oxford University graduate with a 2:1 BA in English Language and Literature. The Oxford English degree covers the length and breadth of literature from Old English to the present day, giving me a varied and versatile knowledge and an understanding of the numerous ways of approaching literary works. The tutoring system there has has given me plenty of experience in a one-to-one learning environment. Having come from a state school background however, I know the challenges of facing material that seems far above one's abilities, and the importance of developing independent research and analytical skills to attain top level engagement in the classroom and in exams. I'm passionate for this reason about making literature - particularly the texts on GCSE and A-level syllabuses deemed stuffy and complicated - accessible to all ages and levels. I want to become a tutor in order to make reading and appreciating texts interesting, engaging and fun. I can also teach English language to A level, with a particular knowledge in the issues around sociolinguistics and language and identity. With my own experience of education not far behind me, I want to teach sessions that allow students to be vocal, creative and experimental, rather than following formulaic instructions - completing independent tasks as well as having the opportunity to lead mature and collaborative discussions. These are designed to nurture confidence in students' own critical and comparative voices. This reaches beyond box-ticking teaching methods that over-emphasise the components of mark-schemes instead of focusing on exam responses as whole products. Still a student myself I'm following my passion for the arts into an MA in Film at my neighbouring university, Oxford Brookes. Training daily as a rower too I like to see studying as a fun space that balances out the objective, empirical world of my sporting performance. And when I'm not studying or training I love to draw, paint and play music on banjo, guitar and piano - a creative streak which I hope comes through in my lessons!

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.

About me: I am about to graduate with a 1st Class degree in English Literature and Language, and will be studying towards an MA in English Literature from September, after which I plan to do a PHD in English. I left school in 2008 with 13 GCSEs grades B-A* and have A-Levels grades A-B in English and History. I am a published author, having recently submitted works for a life writing anthology. What I offer: I can offer tutoring for both primary and secondary school English pupils, having a good understanding of the current English curriculum, up to GCSE and A-Level English Literature and Language, as well as undergraduate Literature, critical theory, language and creative writing. Experience: I have worked with children and young people for over ten years, and currently work in education part time as a learning support assistant and tutor, doing targeted work with pupils who require additional support. As well as tutoring, I have extensive experience of working with children and young people who have additional needs and barriers to learning, from phonics support at preschool level to targeted tutoring at secondary and above. As part of my degree I undertook a placement working alongside a SENDCO, undertaking research and training in the support of young people with SEND. I have attended several courses in relation to SEND support, including visuals and 6 week SCILS course (social communication and interaction learning support). I have previously taught woodwork classes to young people as part of an outdoor learning programme, and worked as a youth outreach worker for a museum, teaching workshops and classes for visiting schools and groups of young people. I have a passion for teaching and working with young people, and am keen to ensure a responsive and inclusive approach to my tutoring. I have a passion for literature and history and music having played the violin for over 20 years. In my spare time I enjoy writing and reading and run a small holding with my husband and children, where we keep goats, sheep, chickens and ducks.

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.

I attended Harrow School where I completed my GCSE and A levels and was exposed to some of the finest teaching styles. Following this, I began my undergraduate degree in History at the University of Bristol. Through a desire to pass on my knowledge and experience to others I began my tutoring journey alongside my studies. While undertaking a two-year Master's degree in Law at Bristol, I continued to develop my teaching abilities and undertake more difficult tuition jobs. I have tutored for the past three years and have focussed on quality over quantity. I prefer to take on a smaller student base which allows me to get to know the specific needs of the student and tailor my style accordingly. I have tutored a wide range of subjects to varying levels and to great success. My feedback has been positive as students enjoy the calm and methodical approach I take to teaching. I think it is important for the students to not just rope learn subjects but rather understand how the examination process works, enjoy learning and subsequently ace the exams. Most recently I home tutored a student who dropped out of school due to ongoing anxiety. I tutored her through eight key subjects and raised her grade from a predicted average of 4-5 to 7 on all key subjects. She has since gained a place at university and still remains in contact for further help.
