« Perfect! Nico helped me prepare for a job interview presentation for a teaching fellow position. His insights and suggestions were vital and made me feel more confident presenting. Once briefed, Nico was able to identify the important aspects of my presentation and gave invaluable suggestions on how to present them to convey my message. “Start with the most important items - don’t forget, the attention span of the listener is short so best to deliver your main message early on ”. Nico is very approachable and eloquent and made me feel very comfortable during our session. His pedagogical skills are remarkable and I cannot recommend him highly enough. The interview went very well and I am pleased to report that I have got the position! Thank you Nico! »

Cambridge English graduate with 10 years experience tutoring English Language and Literature

Methodology

I am skilled at meeting each pupil where they currently are in their progress with English, from where we move forward.
My students typically develop a new enjoyment and satisfaction with English Literature and Language, as I am able to explain things to them that they've struggled or been dissatisfied with.
Usually, we generate laughter, fun, and inspiration in our sessions together.
I have high levels of patience, clarity in communicating ideas, and expert knowledge of the relevant novels, plays and poetry we encounter.
I work partly in a school, so I also understand the demands that teachers are under and that pupils experience.

Experience

I have been tutoring in London since 2010.
I support students who find English challenging as well as those who are excelling and require additional challenge.
My students consistently score A and A* at GCSE and A Level and have gone on to gain entry to highly competitive selective schools, as well as Oxford and Cambridge.
For many of my pupils, English is not a first language. I have worked with many first language French families, as well as Italian, Arabic and Russian.
I have extensive experience with pupils with additional needs, including dyslexia, dyspraxia, and ASD and have worked as an examiner for Cambridge International.

Our son Sam really enjoyed working with Nicholas. Sam found English Literature dry at school. He is bright but struggled to engage with the subject and with essay writing. Nicholas really helped him to understand and enjoy his set books and poetry, and to structure his thoughts so he could put pen to paper. He got an A in his GCSE and was thrilled, as were we. Nicholas was patient and calm. He also brought extensive knowledge of literature and passion for the subject. He knew how to bring out the best in Sam and build his confidence. We would recommend him to anybody!

Nico tutored for about 6 months in various subjects including English Literature, and I couldn't recommend him highly enough. He's patient, calm, very knowledgable and works with you to make sure you get the results you need.

I have worked with Nico for 3 or 4 years now. He has helped me prepare for multiple university tests such as the IELTS, or the entry test for Oxford, and interviews. I believe that my overall English level has gotten better over the years, mainly thanks to our frequent lessons. Nico is a patient teacher, who lessens to the needs of his student and helps you achieve your goals methodically. His company is very enjoyable and he always has great texts/poems/books to propose as a work base. I currently live in France and still talk to him on a regular basis, in order to maintain my current English level, and to discuss captivating texts and articles with him.

Nico is completely trustworthy. Having one on one sessions helped me to enjoy English literature. Nico listened to my ideas and helped me transform them into high quality essays for my A level. I would definitely recommend him of you want a tutor who is patient, thoughtful and organised. I found him very easy to talk to - I never felt embarrassed or stupid. I was amazed at the standard of work I got to with Nico's tutoring. He can help make complex critical ideas accessible and dense poems comprehensible. Not only did he have a through understanding of every text we studied, he also helped with more practical matters if that's what I needed (like revision strategy and organisation). Thank you very much Nico!

Our daughter Julie had a great experience working with Nicholas. He prepared her for test-essays for her UKiset, and she achieved an excellent score. Nico is pleasant, patient and professional. He knows how to engage students and bring them to a higher level, in a short time. We were more than satisfied, and would recommend Nico to anybody!

From CC to A*A

In summer 2018, our son did really well in his IGCSEs at a leading English boarding school, but fell short in English Language and Literature, in which he attained two ‘C’s. Eager to improve his grades, especially with American college applications in mind, he decided to re-sit both English Language and Literature.
He had thirty hours of tutoring with Nico, spread over two terms before re-sitting the exams. To our immense delight, second time round he achieved AA*. We were all delighted and he is now on track for his US college applications.

Unprompted by us, my son has described Nico as ‘an amazing teacher’, who who helped him focus his energy specifically on what the exams asked for, something he has struggled with in the past. For our part, my husband and I found Nico to be personable and easy to communicate with. From the start, he ‘got’ what it was we were looking for and, most importantly, he was able to deliver. Like me, he’s also a major Jane Austen fan, which is a big thumbs-up in my book.

I’ve asked Nico if he can work with our younger daughter, who begins her GCSE course this year, and would enthusiastically recommend him to other parents seeking professional tutoring services for their teenage children. A huge thank you from all of us!

Having used Nico for five consecutive years should say enough. Nico’s excellent tutoring helped my mediocre writing English pass the test to get into my school of choice at the age of 13 and then to achieve a top grade at GCSE level. I am very grateful for his patience, passion and positive energy. I recommend him highly!
