Personal Description:

My name is James . I'm an experienced English tutor based in the heart of Chelsea. I have 1st class degree in English from St Andrews University and a Masters in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia. I've worked in schools and as a full time journalist.

I teach students of all levels, from 11+ through GCSE to A-Level, as well as working with adults. I am familiar with both SATs and independent schools' entrance exams. I have a Trinity (TESOL), TEFL qualification and I have also worked on behalf of several of London's best regarded tutoring agencies.

I can host lessons for up to eight students, or travel locally.

While I specialise in teaching English, I can also help with other 11+ subjects including the scholarship exams and GCSE History & Classical Civilization.

Update * I have very limited availability. At primary level I teach students in years 5 and 6 only. I don't teach students in years 1-4 or younger.

Tutoring Experience:

I taught English Language and Literature for two years at Kiangsu-Chekiang College, Sha Tin, Hong Kong before returning to the UK to work as a journalist. I taught English literature and language and spoken English to students, aged 14-20 including preparation for HKCEE and A-Level examination.

As a tutor I have over 500 hours of experience gained part time over the last five years tutoring students for the 11+ up to A Level.

Tutoring Approach:

As an experienced English tutor I offer support to students looking to improve their prospects in national and independent school English exams, including the 11+, 13+, GCSE and A-Level.

Tuition is always tailored to student's needs, from short courses prioritising exam technique to extended study that will broaden student's appreciation of a subject more generally – giving them the confidence and depth of knowledge necessary to excel in the challenging interviews required by private schools and leading universities.

I prepare bespoke lessons:

- For exams (SATs, 11+, independent school entrance, GCSE, A-level)

- To develop greater subject understanding (particularly for parents whose children may be considering studying English at university)

- To improve schoolwork generally (focusing on comprehension, grammar and essay-writing in other subjects)

- To encourage reading and writing outside education (including English as a second language)

- For interviews (private schools and leading universities)
