Hello! I am a London born writer and teacher. I teach English at Goldsmiths College, University of London and I tutor young people and adults in all humanities subjects. I love to help students of all ages to engage with literature and succeed in exams at all levels. I have a background in English Language teaching, having taught EFL for four years, and am currently an Academic English Lecturer, private tutor and teacher of Creative and Business Writing. If you're looking to improve grades, learn how to enjoy study, or books - get in touch! I have a background in Sociology, so I've coached A level and GCSE students through this subject in my private tuition. I also have a 1st class honours degree in English Langauge and Literature and would be a great tutor for anyone who wants to improve their KS 3+, GCSE or A-level grades at this level. I am completing a Masters in English and Creative Writing and Goldsmiths College, and many of my students are adults who just want to explore texts or writing at a deeper level. Because of my background in EFL, I'm an expert in the English language and run monthly clubs for speakers of other languages who want to improve their speaking, reading, listening or writing. Over my in-school career, I've taught Sociology, Philosophy, English Literature and Language, EFL, Academic English, and study skills from ages 16 to 60, from secondary to PhD level, and I'm very proud of my 100% success rate! I take a very student-centred approach. I like to find a way into the topic that interests my student. For example, last week I taught my adult pre-masters English students how to speed read through a text on amateur journalism. This summer I taught Lacanian philosophical theory to first year BA students via comics. Last month, in a 121 lesson my student and went to the library to practice speaking English, and yesterday I taught a 7-year-old how to write a poem by looking at the food in her cupboard. What I do is so varied, I tend to be led by the student's goals. What exams are coming up, and when? What are the current strengths and concerns? How confident is the student in their aims? Finally, how can I realistically bridge the gap between the knowledge the student has and the knowledge they need?

University English Tuition

Students choose to work with a private University English tutor for a number of reasons ranging from academic goals to stress reduction. English is an incredibly rewarding subject to study at this advanced level of education and is a consistently popular degree option for both national and international students. Studying English ensures that students become masters of communication in all its forms. Students will become fantastic orators whilst also learning to write expertly in a range of forms, styles and for different audiences. Students will also become highly skilled at understanding and interpreting texts from a variety of contexts whilst developing a real appreciation of the interwoven relationship between the written word and human society. This attractive set of skills and the diverse knowledge acquired during an English degree also makes successful graduates highly attractive candidates for careers in a broad range of industries.

The benefits of a top-class English degree are indisputable, but achieving success on a University English course is far from easy. Students are expected to think, read and write at an extremely high level whilst also producing vast quantities of work to tight deadlines. Many students struggle to keep up with the challenges of University study, often leading to low self-confidence and a decline in grades. Working with a private University English tutor can revolutionise every aspect of a students University experience. From explaining complex and nuanced literary concepts to helping students develop practical study and exam techniques, working with a University English tutor gives students the tools they need to thrive in their degree.

    Tutoring FAQs

    A

    Yes. All tutors must have a valid DBS certificate before their profile goes live on the Tutor House site. We do in-house DBS checks, which means we get DBS done very quickly. If a tutor’s DBS certificate is not validated or has expired then their profile will taken down until a new DBS certificate is issued. Although this is completely over to the tutor to notify us when it has expired. Once we’ve checked the tutors DBS, we are not responsible for keeping it up to date. A DBS (Disclosed Baring Service) is a way of checking tutors. Tutor House performs a background check, and a police checks. We make sure that all tutors are suitable to work with children and adults, before their profiles go live. The DBS replaced the CRB.

However, if you cancel your lesson within 48 hours you will be charged the full amount. If there is an unforeseen circumstance, then both the tutor and Tutor House will discuss this with you. In some situations lessons can be rescheduled (free of charge), but this is at the tutor’s discretion.

    A

If you do pay a tutor outside of the Tutor House website you will not be protected by our 48 Hour Cancelation Policy, our Disputes Policy or our Refund Policy. We also can not protect you from fraud or spam accounts. Before messaging a tutor you are required to sign our Terms and Conditions. Any loss of earning would be considered a legal matter. Tutor House is designed to introduce excellent tutors to customers putting tutors in touch with students and learners. We help and support students to get the best out of their learning experience. If you use the Tutor House website you must complete all bookings within the online platform, including the arrangement of any other services provided by tutors for clients. If you make any arrangement with a tutor that you were introduced to through Tutor House, outside the online platform, either for tuition or payment, you will have broken our terms and conditions. In this case, neither the tutor or customer (parent or student) will be protected or covered, as mentioned above. For more information about payment please refer to our terms and conditions.

    A

    If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

    A

    If you are running late for a booking then please do let the tutor know via the in-app messenger as soon as possible because the tutor may still have to finish the lesson at the scheduled time, depending on his/her availability. However, tutors will usually try to make up time lost at the end of the session for the intended duration, although it’s important to note that this is at the tutor’s discretion. Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson. If you are late for the lesson, tutors will charge for the full amount that has been agreed and confirmed. We operate a 48 hour cancellation policy, which means that if you cancel the lesson with 48 hours you will be charged the full amount.

    A

    Yes, we do take a fee, but at a fraction of the rate which other companies charge. We don’t have a sign up fee for new customers, we don’t charge an introduction fee, and we don’t charge administration fees. However, we do charge a small commission which pays for the security of tutors (we meet all tutors, check their DBS certificates and ensure they are who they say there are), and the maintenance of the site. If you have any problems using the site, you can always email or call us.

    A

Also, You can communicate with the tutor with the instant in-app messaging at any point (before or after the booking has been made). Please note that it is possible for you and the tutor to mutually agree to booking changes after this stage. This must be done within the messenger app on the website. You can also use the same means of comunication to find out more about the tutor, after you have requested a booking. In addition to this you can always check the tutors reviews and ranking.

    A

    By default, when searching for a tutor you will be shown the nearest tutors to your location. Travelling longer distances may incur additional travel costs; however the tutor will inform you if this is the case, and any travel costs can be mutually agreed before the lesson is booked. Most tutors would expect to travel up to 45 minutes to get you, at no extra cost. If there are additional charges the tutor will make you aware of that. You can always ask the tutor for online lessons if there is the possibility of travel costs being added to the costs of your lessons. Most of our Tutors infact use Skype and can carry out lessons online with no additional cost. Sometimes online courses is the perfect answer.

    I have been tutoring for over 15 years and I have lots of experience in teaching English at all levels. I tutor face- to- face and also online and have experience in teaching English as a foreign language, both online with students in China and in groups to European students in a summer school. I have a wealth of great resources that can help students understand the subject they are studying much better and lots of in depth knowledge of my subject as I have a Master's Degree in English. I can also prepare students for private school entry and 11 plus and I have an excellent record in helping students gain entry into their desired school. I have 8 years of experience in a college setting, teaching GCSE and A level English. I have also taught privately at undergraduate level, helping with research for dissertations, for example. I am also an examiner so can help students reach their potential in their exams. This experience means that I can help students to avoid the common pitfalls that can be encountered in exams; such as structuring their answers and answering in the time allowed.

    Yes. All tutors must have a valid DBS certificate before their profile goes live on the Tutor House site. We do in-house DBS checks, which means we get DBS done very quickly. If a tutor’s DBS certificate is not validated or has expired then their profile will taken down until a new DBS certificate is issued. Although this is completely over to the tutor to notify us when it has expired. Once we’ve checked the tutors DBS, we are not responsible for keeping it up to date. A DBS (Disclosed Baring Service) is a way of checking tutors. Tutor House performs a background check, and a police checks. We make sure that all tutors are suitable to work with children and adults, before their profiles go live. The DBS replaced the CRB.

    If a tutor is late for a lesson then it is the duty of the tutor to arrange to make up the lost time by finding a time that suits you both, either on the same day or another mutually convenient time. Usually the tutor will make up the time during the lesson. For example if the tutor was 30 minutes late they would stay an extra 30 minutes at the end of the lesson. If this is not possible you can then either ask the tutor to make up the time at the next lesson, or contact us and we will arrange a partial refund for you. If the tutor fails to do this then please contact us via disputes@tutorhouse.co.uk and we will respond to your dispute within 48 hours, if not sooner.

    If you are running late for a booking then please do let the tutor know via the in-app messenger as soon as possible because the tutor may still have to finish the lesson at the scheduled time, depending on his/her availability. However, tutors will usually try to make up time lost at the end of the session for the intended duration, although it’s important to note that this is at the tutor’s discretion. Tutors will usually wait for 30 minutes, but again this is at the tutor’s discretion – tutors may well have to leave at the original time for another lesson. If you are late for the lesson, tutors will charge for the full amount that has been agreed and confirmed. We operate a 48 hour cancellation policy, which means that if you cancel the lesson with 48 hours you will be charged the full amount.

    By default, when searching for a tutor you will be shown the nearest tutors to your location. Travelling longer distances may incur additional travel costs; however the tutor will inform you if this is the case, and any travel costs can be mutually agreed before the lesson is booked. Most tutors would expect to travel up to 45 minutes to get you, at no extra cost. If there are additional charges the tutor will make you aware of that. You can always ask the tutor for online lessons if there is the possibility of travel costs being added to the costs of your lessons. Most of our Tutors infact use Skype and can carry out lessons online with no additional cost. Sometimes online courses is the perfect answer.
