Personal Description:

I have a doctorate from Oxford University and am a very experienced tutor. In 2015 and 2016 my students had 100% pass rate at grade C or above.

Some 2016 students saw grades rise from C to A, from D to B and in one case, from E on the English foundation paper to B on the higher paper.

I regularly tutor home-educated students. I can teach a complete GCSE or A LEVEL course or I can support you if you are distance learning with another institution. I am experienced with CIE, AQA, OCR, EDEXCEL and WJEC.

I support students at school, college or university who need some extra help with the syllabus or need to resit an exam.

The hourly lesson cost includes preparation, marking, packs of resources and practice exam papers.

I have both a Masters` Degree and a Doctorate from Oxford University, and I am a qualified teacher. I am also an experienced Learning Mentor, focusing on academic skills and exam coaching.

I offer one-to-one tuition in my home, lessons by Skype and small tutorial groups. I also offer a Study Buddy programme where you can combine lessons with a friend and get a discount.

Often students know the syllabus but are unclear how to answer questions in the analytical, structured format that gets good grades. I teach with a focus on restructuring answers in the style that examiners prefer and to develop your own original ideas into an effective argument. Confidence is also key to success, so I work with you to promote understanding, learn academic technique and build confidence in your own abilities.

Tutoring Experience:

12 years

Tutoring Approach:

I offer a professional, bespoke tutoring service that tailors lessons to the pace and ability of each individual student. There is no `one size fits all` approach. Every student is different and that is reflected in my tutoring style - my job is to find something that works for you and helps you to achieve your goals.
