Personal Description:

My theory of education is largely Platonic: I associate learning with freedom.

As such, I spend much of my free time educating myself.

My current areas of interest are philosophy, psychology and self-discovery.

I have just started trying to get my head around the fundamentals of Buddhism, no easy task!

I also spend a lot of time playing rugby, which I'm pretty good at (2 Oxford Blues, International Honours at u18s and University Level, Semi-Pro experience).

If I'm not playing, reading or writing, I will likely be spending time with my friends and family. My nephews make excellent test-pilots for any new games and teaching ideas!

Tutoring Experience:

- 3 years' as a full-time Master (Economics and Business) at Harrow School.
- Outstanding results over 50% of students scored A*-A !
- 6 years' tutoring a range of subjects (English, Economics, Business, Politics, Philosophy, RS) from GCSE to undergraduate level

Tutoring Approach:

Whilst learning cannot always be enthralling, it should never be dull.

Whether its learning basic Maths and English, passing the Year 9 SATS or getting the right grades for university, I can help.

Students will learn all the essential knowledge to reach their goals at whatever level, as well as extra work on the fundamental underlying principles that extend beyond the syllabus (and into the real world!). This is all made relevant and memorable with interesting examples and additional information that make the core material go down smoothly whilst helping students understand why their subjects matter in the wider world. This approach ensures students become engaged and willing to learn, leading to higher retention rates and ultimately higher marks. Perhaps more importantly, my approach teaches students how to think clearly and creatively, the end result being excellent exam results and transferable thinking skills that will last a lifetime.

I can offer tailored tutoring for all ages, schools admissions advice and University application/ admittance assistance, particularly in entrance to prestigious universities (including actual Oxbridge interview material).
