Map for Simon (Mr)

Personal Description:

I graduated in 2013 with a first-class degree in English from Cambridge University, where I was a scholar and academic prize-winner in my final year. I'm 26, love the theatre, and spend much of my own time writing.

Tutoring Experience:

I have 4 years' intermittent tutoring experience in English, French, and Spanish from GCSE to degree level. Whether it's exam technique and essay structuring that's holding you back, or difficulty getting your head around a particular author or coursework topic, I'd be happy to help.

I'm also TEFL-qualified to teach English as a foreign language - so if you're a complete beginner, or starting a job in the UK and after some professional development, please don't hesitate to get in touch.

Tutoring Approach:

I have a non-dogmatic approach to sessions, seeking to cultivate in tutees a confidence in the validity of their own views, while addressing areas of technical weakness. Through open discussion, practical exercises, and close attention to written work, I am able to channel their strengths into a methodology that will be appropriately rewarded by examination mark schemes. I have an adaptable style of tuition that can as comfortably accommodate the frustrations of those seeking to gain a pass at GCSE as it can stretch the ambitions of those with their sights set on an Oxbridge interview.
