- How much do you charge?
As an Oxford University graduate with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), my charges are commensurate with my education, qualifications, professional expertise and results (see above and below).
I have two rates: a lower rate for pupils who come to my study in my home in Becontree; and a higher rate for pupils whom I visit to teach in their homes. These higher fees are fully inclusive of my travel expenses to your home or workplace, if you live in the boroughs of Barking & Dagenham, Redbridge, Havering or Newham.
If you live further afield, an additional travel expense surcharge is likely to apply.
Lessons in my Study:
I charge £40 per hour for all lessons given in my home.
Lessons in your Home:
I charge £42 per hour for all work undertaken with primary school-aged children (7+, 11+, and Key Stages 1 & 2 Modern Languages); and £45 per hour for secondary-level and adult pupils. The £42.00 rate represents a £3.00 per hour discount for younger children on my travelling rate of £45.00 per hour.
- Where do you teach?
I teach in my study at home in Becontree; or in students' homes or places of work elsewhere in London and Essex.
Please visit my website - using the link above - to find out more about my catchment area.
- When are you available?
My current teaching days are Mondays (at home); Tuesdays; Thursdays; Fridays; & Saturdays.
Please telephone me to find out which slots are available.
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I teach Key Stages 1-5 (ages 5-18) and adults. As a qualified secondary school teacher, my principal areas are Key Stage 3, GCSE and A-Level. However, in 2014 I undertook further professional training and also carried out several classroom observations at top public schools* in the primary/preparatory phase in order to be able to teach Key Stages 1-2 effectively. Since that time I have taught many primary-school-aged children on a weekly basis.
*The schools in which I carried out lesson observations include Bryanston, Christ's Hospital, Norwich School, Radley College, Godstowe and Bancroft's Prep. I have also taught classes at Swanbourne House and Forest Prep.

I taught for some time in a state secondary school in east London, in addition to undertaking a short period of supply teaching. I now focus on one-to-one teaching, and have a regular client base in London and Essex.
A large proportion of my current pupils are 11+ exam candidates.
Many of my pupils have either attended or gained entrance to high-ranking public schools such as St. Paul's Girls' School, Eton College, Cheltenham Ladies' College, City of London School for Boys, City of London School for Girls, Bancroft's, Forest & Chigwell.

I have lived in both France and Germany for extended periods of time, and I have recently been working on a translation of a seventeenth-century classical French text. I am also experienced in public recitation.

His teaching skills are amazing!
We engaged Mr Cremer quite urgently for intensive tuition in revision of French grammar for our 10 and 8 year old sons. Our boys are heading to a new French school and required someone capable and fluent in French to remind them of what they had forgotten over the summer. We were extremely fortunate to find Mr.Cremer. His knowledge and grasp of the French language is complete.
We are a multi-lingual French-speaking family and were all greatly impressed by him. He is a serious, yet engaging teacher, punctual and extremely competent.
My sons, when asked what they thought of him after the first lesson, simply replied: 'first class'.
