Information About Howard - Bicester teacher - (21 reviews)
This is how 3 referees rated Howard:
I am a British PhD with degrees from the universities of London, Jerusalem and Cambridge. Author of 'Israel and the Cold War' (I.B. Tauris, 2013), I write for several academic journals and newspapers, and review for the Royal Institute of International Affairs, Chatham House. I was the first recipient of the Mikardo scholarship, awarded by the British Foreign Office, and, whilst at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, was awarded a Golda Meir Fellowship. Whilst at Cambridge, I won a Donner prize in Atlantic Studies. In addition to the subjects listed below, I tutor in International Relations and Middle Eastern Studies, and am happy to consider all enquiries within my general areas of interest, and experience. I am also available for dissertation consultation, proofreading, and help in exam and essay writing.
A former Teaching Fellow at King's College London, I have taught MA courses on the Arab-Israeli conflict, US and British Foreign Policy, War and Peace in the Middle East, and Inter-Faith Relations. A fluent Hebrew speaker, I was Peer Tutor in Hebrew at University College London, where I was awarded the departmental prize for excellence in the Hebrew language. I have tutored privately abroad, as well as in Britain, and have an immensely successful record with my tutees. In addition to one-to-one and online tuition throughout the academic year, I also offer intensive tuition during school and university holidays, which both tutees and parents find particularly useful for preparation, consolidation of knowledge and, if need be, to get a tutee back on track. For peace of mind, I have an enhanced DBS check, subscribed to the annual update service.
Patient, understanding, relaxed, interactive, theme-based, and multi-disciplinary. Use of past papers, analysis, deconstruction of exam and essay questions, concepts, and requirements, development of essay and exam structure. I pay particular attention to a student's self-confidence and self-expression, which often serve as catalysts for enhanced self-belief and, hence, success.

We couldn't Hv found a better tutor.
Really really happy
My daughter is very happy to study with him, which is a miracle in itself.
He's a very good teacher - helping her towards her GCSEs and her entrance exam into a new school for sixth form. We have booked two weeks of lessons and it's all going swimmingly.
Thank you .
Kind regards ,
Gabriel has enjoyed the interaction and gained in confidence in the two subjects, A' level history and politics.
Early days, but we hope this will translate into better results!
He is happy to adapt lessons to the way the pupil learns best so as to ensure the pupil's objectives are met.
I would happily recommend Howard to anyone wishing to learn Hebrew.
Howard has given Rosa helpful advice and feedback and has treated Rosa with respect.
We have appreciated his flexibility and teaching style. He has challenged Rosa in a positive way to learn and achieve more.
I think this has been a very effective way to teach.
