« We always believed that our son has some potential, but with Ben's guidance this has come to life. His writing has been transformed: his punctuation and grammar are now impeccable. He was very reluctant to read books, but now we are unable to keep books away from him. He has been selected by every grammar school he has sat examinations for. Ben has become not only a mentor but a friend - our son loves the sessions and cannot wait for the next one.

BEN - Central Brighton - School English

Methodology

I aim to create a fun learning environment to bring out the creativity and confidence in each child, enabling students to reach their full potential. Results can be spectacular.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English Literacy, English Literature and History.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I am an experienced private tutor who studied at Eton College and Oxford University. I have 10 O'levels and 3 A'levels (English, History and RE).

- How much do you charge?

£50 per hour.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at students' homes, either in London or in East Sussex (Brighton, Hove, Lewes), or I can tutor students further afield by Skype.

- When are you available?

I can generally teach any afternoon or evening from about 3pm onwards, with no seasonal variations.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach any level from age five to adults (KS1, KS2, 7+, 11+, Common Entrance and 13+).

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

I can tutor KS2 and KS3 via Skype.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

My priority is enabling pupils to achieve their potential, and this is reflected in excellent exam results. The best way to achieve this is to create a fun working environment: humour, encouragement and support all contribute towards bringing out the best in students. Please read parents' comments for objective feedback on my teaching style!

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have three children of my own (now aged 14 to 17), and I have tried to instil in them a love of reading. My students include two brothers who were born profoundly deaf, for whom English is a second language. With patience, empathy and understanding I am helping them to master the subject.

I have had two books published, and I have worked as a professional proofreader and book editor.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have a CRB disclosure certificate.

Ben is very positive when teaching, encouraging as well as inspiring. He makes the subjects easier to understand and if I was tired or lost concentration, Ben gave me energy by letting me run around the garden! He is a great tutor and we had lots of fun. I got an A grade.

Ben Noakes tutored my twelve year-old son for 5 months up to his Common Entrance exam at Brighton College. Due to Ben's enthusiasm, support and professional attitude, my son achieved both good and very good grades in his examinations. I can highly recommend him.
