Personal Description:

My name is David and I am a fully qualified English teacher living in Harrow, Middlesex.

I have many years of experience in tutoring and hold the following qualifications:

Level 5 Certificate in Further Education Teaching Stage 3
Level 4 Certificate for ESOL Subject Specialists
Level 4 Certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (CELTA) (Grade A)
Safeguarding and Safer Recruitment in Further Education

I also have Enhanced Disclosure (a police check that confirms I do not have a criminal record of any kind).

I am a native English speaker and currently work at Harrow College, Middx, teaching students of many nationalities at all levels.

Some of the areas in which I tutor students are as follows:

GCSE & IGCSE preparation (language & literature)
11 plus entrance examinations (comprehension, writing skills & verbal reasoning) - my students consistently gain entry to their first choice school.
Understanding of grammar
Exam preparation & practice (e.g. GCSE, IGCSE, Key Stage, 11+, SATs, First Certificate, Cambridge ESOL exams)
Reading and writing skills
Pronunciation
Conversation practice

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching English since 2005 at Harrow College and also to private students of varying ages. During this time, I have become highly familiar with the numerous exam formats and what is expected of students at each level.

I have been highly successful in helping students achieve target grades and above in their examinations and many have seen dramatic improvements, jumping from E or D grade in mock exams to B or A in the final exams.

I have also seen the vast majority of the 11+ students I tutor awarded a place at their preferred school, including St Paul's, Haberdashers, North London Collegiate, Merchant Taylors', Henrietta Barnett, St Helen's, Queen Elizabeth's & John Lyon.

Tutoring Approach:

My role as an English teacher involves careful assessment of each student and the adaptation of my lessons accordingly. I like to take a structured and logical approach, breaking things down so they are easy to understand, and then building them back up again. I find this method to be highly effective with learners of all levels.

My aim is to tailor lessons to the individual, and in the first lesson I would assess what is needed and set goals that can be worked towards.

Please note:

Lessons are all year round, including first and last week of term and also the summer holidays (allowing 2-3 weeks for vacations); cancelled lessons would need to be paid for.
