I have a patient and calm tutoring style and love working with students of all ages. I've tutored A level history students in the past and 3/4 of my students got A grades. I also tutored young children in an after-school homework club at Oxford. I know how to engage students with the curriculum and make them see the fun side of studying. I think the best way to get top grades is by understanding the material, so my methods involve telling stories, QandAs, and making mind maps and colourful notes to make the important stuff stick. I also want my students to take a genuine interest in the subject and be curious about the world and find the experience of learning as enjoyable as I do. A bit about me -- I studied History at Oxford University and graduated in 2012. I've worked as a journalist for the Guardian and the Washington Post and now I work in finance in central London.

Hi, I’m Anton! I am in my first year at Imperial College studying Medical Biosciences. Prior to this I studied Biology, Chemistry and Economics at higher level in the IB. I have experience teaching English at a primary school for one year. My lessons are very much driven by the student: my main goal is to fill in the gaps in the student’s knowledge, clear up any confusion about the topic and reinforce new concepts. Students are always encouraged to ask questions and not feel embarrassed about not understanding something. I am flexible to teach in different ways according to how the student learns best.

Facts about Common Entrance and the British Education system

The British Education system favours depth over breadth. Especially at primary level, therefore there is a focus on numeracy and literacy.The British Primary system is unique in that a student is able to develop a relationship with a single teacher. This helps the child’s development and social skills, that they proceed to nurture when they enter secondary school and can encounter a range of teaching personalities and inquisitive minds.

Independent Schools that offer the Common Entrance exam provide children with an education which is outlined in the National Curriculum but offers a range of extracurricular activities, and access to a pedagogical spectrum that exceeds that recommended by the government.

How can you best prepare for studying in the UK

By using practice papers, you can consolidate your knowledge and refine exam technique. Divide your topics into sizeable chunks, for example by using revision cards, and recite those cards to anyone who will listen!It’s important to dedicate time to the subjects you are weaker in, and not just those you enjoy the most. Tutor House can always help you with additional Common Entrance support.

The UK is an epicentre for intellectual and educational growth. Boasting four of the world’s top ten universities (Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial and UCL), studying at a top school in the country puts children in good stead for their future development. Not only that, but the U.K has some of the best Independent Schools in the world.

The messaging is instant, so your tutor will receive the notification via both; the website and email. Hence he or she can respond to immediately. You may wish to discuss your preferred lesson time and date, or discuss which exam board you’re studying for A-levels and GCSE’s, or even to discuss specific text and books which you are currently studying. 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.

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.
