- Do you have a personal message for students?
I have a lot to say about tutoring, but I'll try to keep this short! Though every person requires their own nuanced learning strategy, there are a few principles I try to maintain whoever I am tutoring. Firstly, my aim is to build confidence. I am convinced that academic progress, even excellence is within everybody's reach and I hope to convince that to each of my tutees. AnÐ¾ther impÐ¾rtÐ°nt pÐ°rt Ð¾f my tutÐ¾ring Ð°pprÐ¾Ð°ch is striking Ð° bÐ°lÐ°nce between suppÐ¾rting Ð°nd chÐ°llenging the tutee. This means responding positively to mistakes, helping a tutee to recognise them for themselves and to self-correct (thus avoiding doing the thinking for them). I specialise in easing the tension between knowledge and its lucid expression, helping people to write well and in a way which really reflects what they know. In addition to this, I try to have variation in my sessions to keep things engaging. And finally, I think a strength of my tuition is just being keen on making friends with a student and their family.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I am experienced in tutoring GCSE English language and literature, KS3 English, A-level English literature, A-level government and politics and A-level philosophy. I am also experienced in giving essay advice at degree level.

"Anthony Demetriou has conducted several tutoring sessions at my home with my son, Alex. Anthony is currently helping him in various areas of his studies including deepening his knowledge in Philosophy and Ethics and Politics as well as improving his essay writing skills and preparing him for exams.
Anthony is punctual, very personable, incredibly enthusiastic, intelligent and he has a particularly discreet talent of being able to draw the best out of my son in the most confidence-building way. My son looks forward to his sessions and is always left feeling so much happier and upbeat afterwards.
One thing Anthony should pride himself on is his professional approach to ensuring that I am completely made aware of what they will be covering at each session. He also provides constructive feedback which Alex describes as "going above and beyond school to provide descriptive commentary on areas of achievement and potential improvement".
I wish I had employed him a long time ago! "
