I hold a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from the University of Warwick, and a BA (Hons) degree in Japanese Studies from the University of Cambridge. I have S level and A level French, and A levels in Mathematics, Further Mathematics, German and General Studies. I don't have a formal qualification in Portuguese, but I lived and worked for two years in Brazil am quite fluent with a good vocabulary and sound grammatical knowledge.
- How much do you charge?
I generally charge £25 per hour for lessons in easy reach from my home (North Harrow/Pinner border). I'm prepared to travel further afield, and charge additional expenses as appropriate.
- Where do you teach?
I can teach at students' homes (depending on location) or at my home, which is basically in between North Harrow, Rayners Lane and Pinner tube stations.

At the moment I am fairly flexible
- Which ages and levels do you teach?
I'm happy to teach any ages. I mainly aim to teach at GCSE level, but quite happy to teach A level or earlier stages.
- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.
I have a PC and internet connection...so can correspond through email or chat, can review and critique work submitted to me by students on email etc.
- Do you have a personal message for students?
Learning is a lot of fun if you see it in the right light, and it can give you a huge sense of achievement as you find yourself progressing and developing confidence in your chosen subjects. I was lucky and enjoyed a privileged education at excellent places of learning, but when I look back it was really certain individual teachers who provided the right motivation and helped me to shine academically. I aspire to apply what I learned from those excellent people and to help others improve their academic performance.
- What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught English as a foreign language from time to time, and have given a lot of coaching to staff whilst working in business and ICT management over the last 17 years for an international container shipping company.
- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?
I don't currently hold a CRB disclosure certificate, but am quite happy to get one if people would feel more comfortable about this.
- Where and with whom did you train?
I've had some language teaching training with EF language schools, and training in coaching from my employers in the container shipping industry.
