This is how 3 referees rated Howard:
I am a full-time, professional private tutor with years of experience, and have an immensely successful record with my tutees. I am a former Teaching Fellow at King's College London, with degrees from the universities of London, Jerusalem and Cambridge. Author of 'Israel and the Cold War' (I.B.Tauris, 2013), I have reviewed for the Royal Institute of International Affairs and written for several academic journals and newspapers. 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 for an essay on the role of the United States in the Falklands' War. 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. As of 2021, my A level students have won places to, inter alia, Oxford, LSE, UCL, KCL, Birmingham, York, Sheffield, Nottingham and Sussex. For peace of mind, I have an enhanced DBS check, and am subscribed to the annual update service.
A former Teaching Fellow at King's College London, and Doctor of Philosophy, 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. 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.
Patient, understanding, relaxed, interactive, theme-based, and multi-disciplinary. Use of past papers, both Edexcel and AQA new and old specifications, analysis, evaluation, 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.

Caden - Howard describes the lessons I am learning in a way that is very interesting, he provides me with options in areas I am not good at in History such as the gulf wars which I am now proficient at and it is a good opportunity for me. I enjoy the lessons with Howard a lot… very much so. ( fast-typed from a verbal reference from Caden).
knowledgeable. It was a pleasure to be taught by him and I would highly recommend him.
Howard and I have different viewpoints on several issues; however, I believe this to be extremely important because it leads to proper academic discourse and allows me to think a bit more about my position, as an expert is challenging it.
An absolute pleasure to work with!
Great teacher, would not hesitate to recommend Howard to anyone needing to improve History knowledge and grades.
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.
