Approved English Teacher

I am an experienced, full time tutor and teacher from London; I have a BA in French and German, MA in Linguistics, certTESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and am also a qualified Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). My extensive training has meant that I have been able to implement mind programming techniques to my lessons and workshops, specialising in tailor making programs to ensure that I bring out the best in children, teenagers and adults. For the last 9 years I have not only been working with students as a tutor in Languages (French/German) and English Language and a Literature, I have also been teaching English to speakers of other languages. Tutoring includes helping students achieve their targets as well as preparations for all entrance exams including 7+, 11+, 13+, GCSEs and A Levels. From a mentoring point of view, I have assisted students in building their confidence, organising their timetables as well as effective learning strategies. For older students, I have also guided them with career advice including subject choices for GCSEs/A Levels and personal statements at University application stages. I also have extensive experience working with students who have special educational needs (SEN), including autism and ADHD; I use a tailor-made approach which incorporates a step by step process, ensuring that the lessons are planned predominantly around the individual's specific learning style so that he/she is able to learn in the most effective way (visual, auditory, reading/writing or kinesthetic). Most of my sessions have been on a one to one level although I have also had small groups of up to four based on the level of students. Every year my students not only excel in the target subjects, but their overall confidence and self esteem improves significantly and they are able to apply the planning and revising/reviewing skills they have learned to other Humanities subjects such as Geography and History. For me, that’s the most amazing reward as I feel these skills are transferable and help them across all platforms in life. Prior to creating my own set up, I worked as part time tutor for a tutoring agency called ‘London’s Learning.’ During my time there, I taught English to two princes from Qatar as a summer assignment and even helped prepare a young 14-year old student for entrance exams for Eton, which he passed. I have helped countless secondary level students as well as primary level students to surpass their targets over the past 9 years. I am also an experienced public speaker; as well as helping students with speech and language, voice and delivery, I also present study skills and motivational workshops to secondary school students across the UK. This means preparing extensive powerpoint presentations consisting of engaging content to cover both full day and half day workshops to large classes of up to 40 students. The content includes exercises for students, including effective memory techniques, effective planning (using example questions from their syllabus), timetabling, goal setting and mindfulness techniques. Part of mindfulness includes presenting scientific information which shows them how the brain reacts to stress and how best to overcome anxiety. I thoroughly enjoy presenting these types of workshops to young people and always feel that they learn so much; what is important is the feedback that I receive that students have taken away important information and have the will to apply these techniques to both their work at school and in life as a whole for their overall well being. I feel that my skills are in bringing out the best in young people. My communications skills, patience and qualifications all make me an effective tutor for young people; I have a genuine passion for teaching and my tailor-made approach means that I can treat every students in a way where we can focus on strengthening specific areas which need work. My familiarity with all the main exam boards means that I am able to cater for students across the spectrum.

I am an experienced, qualified teacher of native & non-native speakers of English. I have travelled and taught both in the UK and internationally, and I am well-versed in a variety of syllabi and teaching and learning methodologies. Teaching is my passion, especially in small groups or one-to-one. It is in these settings that students can be provided with the focused, specialized attention they need to help them achieve their academic goals. 1-2-1 teaching can be very intense, but I always endeavour to make these sessions enjoyable and productive. I ask questions to determine where the students are struggling and listen to them to discover where they feel their weaknesses are. From this, I can apply relevant strategies to enable the students to develop the skills they need to overcome their problems and make academic progress.

Why use an online English tutor?

With English such an inherently critical subject, the support of a private English tutor can prove essential to a student’s success both academically and in their daily lives. Online English tuition provides the perfect solution for students looking to enhance their English knowledge, whatever their age and level of learning. Online tuition offers and unrivalled flexibility around student’s schedules and budgets, without compromising the quality of their educational experience.

Who could benefit from online English Tuition?

As the mother tongue of the UK and an international language, both of business and diplomacy, proficiency in English communication is essential for students of every age and level. The ability to express yourself clearly and effectively in written and spoken English is a vital skill and students who are able to excel in English will feel the benefits in both their academic and daily lives. While deeply beneficial, students can struggle to grasp the nuances of the English language and the challenges of English study only increase through the education system. There are multiple points in the academic system where English may prove too complex for students to understand without support. Online English tuition can provide a solution for students of every age and level.

Primary Online Tutors: Online English tutors for Primary school students are able to build a solid foundation upon which all of a student’s further education, across all academic subjects, will be based. At this level, students will develop fundamental skills such as reading, writing and speaking in English. Our online English tutors will be able to hone in on any particular areas a student is struggling with, from spelling to the pronunciation of certain sounds. The online platform makes English tuition a fun and engaging activity, with tutors able to incorporate sound effects, games and visual stimuli into their lessons as well as leaving valuable notes. Equally, online English tutors are able to build a connection to students where they feel safe and supported, building their confidence and instilling a love for reading, writing and all things English.
GCSE or IGCSE Online Tutors: IGCSE and GCSE English courses represent a real step-up from their education so far in terms of academic rigour and the importance of a student's final grades. A pass or above in English is a prerequisite for a number of colleges in addition to being required for acceptance onto the majority of University courses. Equally, many employers use English GCSE grades to determine whether applicants have the necessary English proficiency to perform job roles. The GCSE English course develops a student’s reading, writing and speaking skills as well as building their capacity to analyse, argue and process information. With the help of an online English tutor, students can get the support they need to develop the knowledge and skills required for GCSE success. Lessons can be booked around their schedule with tutors catering the content to reflect where a student is struggling and their point in the GCSE curriculum. With online English tutoring, students will benefit from a variety of online tools as well as valuable notes. Improvement in English means that students are able to improve their grades across all GCSE subjects, in addition to getting top marks in possibly the most crucial core subject at this vital point in their education.
A-level or Pre-U Online Tutors: A-level and Pre-U English courses present a dramatic increase in the quantity and quality of work students must deliver if they are to succeed. All A-level qualifications are integral to a student’s future ambitions, whether academic or employment based. Some employers and University courses specifically require applicants to get top A-level English grades. The course also introduces students to a number of culturally important texts, intensely develops their communication skills, builds their analytical and critical thinking abilities and enhancing their research skills - all of which are hugely advantageous to students whatever their future holds. While success at A-level English is deeply beneficial, it is also a point in the academic journey where many students struggle. Online English A-level tutors are experienced teaching the course of all the major exam boards and can give targeted tuition support that ensures students get top grades. Online tutors can also identify areas where a student is struggling and present teaching in a way that suits the students learning style. Online English tuition can be scheduled to fit around the busy lives of A-level students, with lessons possible while travelling, in lunch breaks at school, or from home - to name just a few possibilities. With private online English tuition, students are able to get first-class educational support that ensures they succeed in their English A-levels and reap all of the rewards of a top English grade.
University Online Tutors: Studying English at University is a huge undertaking, with students expected to analyse a broad selection of texts with nuance and high-level critique, as well as demonstrating exceptional oral and written communication in a range of mediums. Obtaining a top English degree can open up a number of employment opportunities, but is no mean feat. Many students struggle with the vastly different learning style of University, strenuous academic rigour, and the challenge of juggling the responsibilities of adult life. An online English tutor for University students can provide the answer. English University tutors are experienced with the University course requirements, many also doubling as English lecturers or professors, and so can give expert support to students. The online platform enables students to book lessons with complete flexibility and at a competitive rate, with students able to learn any time and from almost anywhere. With the guidance of an online English University tutor, students can reach the pinnacle of their English abilities and enjoy a successful academic and employment future.
Adult Learner Online Tutors: Adult learners study English for a variety of reasons and may require anything from basic English conversation practice to high-level education qualification support. Whatever the adult student’s needs, Tutor House online English tutors are able to create lessons and a learning plan that ensures they exceed their goals. Adult life is particularly hectic, which makes the online tutoring platform beneficial as students can book lessons at a time and in a place that suits them. Many adult learners also feel more comfortable learning via the online platform as it helps negate any potential embarrassment. Online tutors must adhere to the same high standards as our face-to-face tutors and will deliver the same top quality tutoring to their students, with the addition of a wealth of online teaching tools.

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.

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.

Approved English Teacher

I am an experienced, full time tutor and teacher from London; I have a BA in French and German, MA in Linguistics, certTESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and am also a qualified Practitioner of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). My extensive training has meant that I have been able to implement mind programming techniques to my lessons and workshops, specialising in tailor making programs to ensure that I bring out the best in children, teenagers and adults. For the last 9 years I have not only been working with students as a tutor in Languages (French/German) and English Language and a Literature, I have also been teaching English to speakers of other languages. Tutoring includes helping students achieve their targets as well as preparations for all entrance exams including 7+, 11+, 13+, GCSEs and A Levels. From a mentoring point of view, I have assisted students in building their confidence, organising their timetables as well as effective learning strategies. For older students, I have also guided them with career advice including subject choices for GCSEs/A Levels and personal statements at University application stages. I also have extensive experience working with students who have special educational needs (SEN), including autism and ADHD; I use a tailor-made approach which incorporates a step by step process, ensuring that the lessons are planned predominantly around the individual's specific learning style so that he/she is able to learn in the most effective way (visual, auditory, reading/writing or kinesthetic). Most of my sessions have been on a one to one level although I have also had small groups of up to four based on the level of students. Every year my students not only excel in the target subjects, but their overall confidence and self esteem improves significantly and they are able to apply the planning and revising/reviewing skills they have learned to other Humanities subjects such as Geography and History. For me, that’s the most amazing reward as I feel these skills are transferable and help them across all platforms in life. Prior to creating my own set up, I worked as part time tutor for a tutoring agency called ‘London’s Learning.’ During my time there, I taught English to two princes from Qatar as a summer assignment and even helped prepare a young 14-year old student for entrance exams for Eton, which he passed. I have helped countless secondary level students as well as primary level students to surpass their targets over the past 9 years. I am also an experienced public speaker; as well as helping students with speech and language, voice and delivery, I also present study skills and motivational workshops to secondary school students across the UK. This means preparing extensive powerpoint presentations consisting of engaging content to cover both full day and half day workshops to large classes of up to 40 students. The content includes exercises for students, including effective memory techniques, effective planning (using example questions from their syllabus), timetabling, goal setting and mindfulness techniques. Part of mindfulness includes presenting scientific information which shows them how the brain reacts to stress and how best to overcome anxiety. I thoroughly enjoy presenting these types of workshops to young people and always feel that they learn so much; what is important is the feedback that I receive that students have taken away important information and have the will to apply these techniques to both their work at school and in life as a whole for their overall well being. I feel that my skills are in bringing out the best in young people. My communications skills, patience and qualifications all make me an effective tutor for young people; I have a genuine passion for teaching and my tailor-made approach means that I can treat every students in a way where we can focus on strengthening specific areas which need work. My familiarity with all the main exam boards means that I am able to cater for students across the spectrum.

I also have extensive experience working with students who have special educational needs (SEN), including autism and ADHD; I use a tailor-made approach which incorporates a step by step process, ensuring that the lessons are planned predominantly around the individual's specific learning style so that he/she is able to learn in the most effective way (visual, auditory, reading/writing or kinesthetic). Most of my sessions have been on a one to one level although I have also had small groups of up to four based on the level of students. Every year my students not only excel in the target subjects, but their overall confidence and self esteem improves significantly and they are able to apply the planning and revising/reviewing skills they have learned to other Humanities subjects such as Geography and History. For me, that’s the most amazing reward as I feel these skills are transferable and help them across all platforms in life. Prior to creating my own set up, I worked as part time tutor for a tutoring agency called ‘London’s Learning.’ During my time there, I taught English to two princes from Qatar as a summer assignment and even helped prepare a young 14-year old student for entrance exams for Eton, which he passed. I have helped countless secondary level students as well as primary level students to surpass their targets over the past 9 years. I am also an experienced public speaker; as well as helping students with speech and language, voice and delivery, I also present study skills and motivational workshops to secondary school students across the UK. This means preparing extensive powerpoint presentations consisting of engaging content to cover both full day and half day workshops to large classes of up to 40 students. The content includes exercises for students, including effective memory techniques, effective planning (using example questions from their syllabus), timetabling, goal setting and mindfulness techniques. Part of mindfulness includes presenting scientific information which shows them how the brain reacts to stress and how best to overcome anxiety. I thoroughly enjoy presenting these types of workshops to young people and always feel that they learn so much; what is important is the feedback that I receive that students have taken away important information and have the will to apply these techniques to both their work at school and in life as a whole for their overall well being. I feel that my skills are in bringing out the best in young people. My communications skills, patience and qualifications all make me an effective tutor for young people; I have a genuine passion for teaching and my tailor-made approach means that I can treat every students in a way where we can focus on strengthening specific areas which need work. My familiarity with all the main exam boards means that I am able to cater for students across the spectrum.

I am an experienced, qualified teacher of native & non-native speakers of English. I have travelled and taught both in the UK and internationally, and I am well-versed in a variety of syllabi and teaching and learning methodologies. Teaching is my passion, especially in small groups or one-to-one. It is in these settings that students can be provided with the focused, specialized attention they need to help them achieve their academic goals. 1-2-1 teaching can be very intense, but I always endeavour to make these sessions enjoyable and productive. I ask questions to determine where the students are struggling and listen to them to discover where they feel their weaknesses are. From this, I can apply relevant strategies to enable the students to develop the skills they need to overcome their problems and make academic progress.

Who could benefit from online English Tuition?

As the mother tongue of the UK and an international language, both of business and diplomacy, proficiency in English communication is essential for students of every age and level. The ability to express yourself clearly and effectively in written and spoken English is a vital skill and students who are able to excel in English will feel the benefits in both their academic and daily lives. While deeply beneficial, students can struggle to grasp the nuances of the English language and the challenges of English study only increase through the education system. There are multiple points in the academic system where English may prove too complex for students to understand without support. Online English tuition can provide a solution for students of every age and level.

Primary Online Tutors: Online English tutors for Primary school students are able to build a solid foundation upon which all of a student’s further education, across all academic subjects, will be based. At this level, students will develop fundamental skills such as reading, writing and speaking in English. Our online English tutors will be able to hone in on any particular areas a student is struggling with, from spelling to the pronunciation of certain sounds. The online platform makes English tuition a fun and engaging activity, with tutors able to incorporate sound effects, games and visual stimuli into their lessons as well as leaving valuable notes. Equally, online English tutors are able to build a connection to students where they feel safe and supported, building their confidence and instilling a love for reading, writing and all things English.
GCSE or IGCSE Online Tutors: IGCSE and GCSE English courses represent a real step-up from their education so far in terms of academic rigour and the importance of a student's final grades. A pass or above in English is a prerequisite for a number of colleges in addition to being required for acceptance onto the majority of University courses. Equally, many employers use English GCSE grades to determine whether applicants have the necessary English proficiency to perform job roles. The GCSE English course develops a student’s reading, writing and speaking skills as well as building their capacity to analyse, argue and process information. With the help of an online English tutor, students can get the support they need to develop the knowledge and skills required for GCSE success. Lessons can be booked around their schedule with tutors catering the content to reflect where a student is struggling and their point in the GCSE curriculum. With online English tutoring, students will benefit from a variety of online tools as well as valuable notes. Improvement in English means that students are able to improve their grades across all GCSE subjects, in addition to getting top marks in possibly the most crucial core subject at this vital point in their education.
A-level or Pre-U Online Tutors: A-level and Pre-U English courses present a dramatic increase in the quantity and quality of work students must deliver if they are to succeed. All A-level qualifications are integral to a student’s future ambitions, whether academic or employment based. Some employers and University courses specifically require applicants to get top A-level English grades. The course also introduces students to a number of culturally important texts, intensely develops their communication skills, builds their analytical and critical thinking abilities and enhancing their research skills - all of which are hugely advantageous to students whatever their future holds. While success at A-level English is deeply beneficial, it is also a point in the academic journey where many students struggle. Online English A-level tutors are experienced teaching the course of all the major exam boards and can give targeted tuition support that ensures students get top grades. Online tutors can also identify areas where a student is struggling and present teaching in a way that suits the students learning style. Online English tuition can be scheduled to fit around the busy lives of A-level students, with lessons possible while travelling, in lunch breaks at school, or from home - to name just a few possibilities. With private online English tuition, students are able to get first-class educational support that ensures they succeed in their English A-levels and reap all of the rewards of a top English grade.
University Online Tutors: Studying English at University is a huge undertaking, with students expected to analyse a broad selection of texts with nuance and high-level critique, as well as demonstrating exceptional oral and written communication in a range of mediums. Obtaining a top English degree can open up a number of employment opportunities, but is no mean feat. Many students struggle with the vastly different learning style of University, strenuous academic rigour, and the challenge of juggling the responsibilities of adult life. An online English tutor for University students can provide the answer. English University tutors are experienced with the University course requirements, many also doubling as English lecturers or professors, and so can give expert support to students. The online platform enables students to book lessons with complete flexibility and at a competitive rate, with students able to learn any time and from almost anywhere. With the guidance of an online English University tutor, students can reach the pinnacle of their English abilities and enjoy a successful academic and employment future.
Adult Learner Online Tutors: Adult learners study English for a variety of reasons and may require anything from basic English conversation practice to high-level education qualification support. Whatever the adult student’s needs, Tutor House online English tutors are able to create lessons and a learning plan that ensures they exceed their goals. Adult life is particularly hectic, which makes the online tutoring platform beneficial as students can book lessons at a time and in a place that suits them. Many adult learners also feel more comfortable learning via the online platform as it helps negate any potential embarrassment. Online tutors must adhere to the same high standards as our face-to-face tutors and will deliver the same top quality tutoring to their students, with the addition of a wealth of online teaching tools.

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.

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.
