« Simon has been tutoring my son, who is in year 8, since January; supplementing what he is doing in school and adding to his skills where necessary. As a result of the lessons, my son has a much better understanding of the work that is being covered in class and as well as this his skills are developing at a much faster pace. Would really recommend Simon for key stage 3. »

English Tutor Mill Hill | English Tuition Hendon (GCSE, A-level)

Methodology

I am an examiner of English Language GCSE, a full time English secondary school teacher and experienced tutor.

I AM RUNNING INTENSIVE COURSES FOR AQA GCSE ENGLISH EXAMS OVER THE EASTER HOLIDAY. GET IN TOUCH FOR MORE DETAILS.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English Literature and Language at secondary level.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I studied English Language and Literature at Leeds University and then went on to do my teacher training- PGCE- at the Institute of Education, now UCL. I became a qualified teacher in 2013, after having completed my first year at St Saviours and St Olaves school.

- How much do you charge?

I charge £40 for key stages 3, 4 and 5.

- Where do you teach?

I teach at home, though mostly I teach at the student's home as it's more convenient for parents. I live in Mill Hill and don't mind travelling to Hendon, Finchley, Edgware, Harrow, Stanmore, Wembley. Providing it's not too far away I don't mind travelling to accommodate you.

- When are you available?

Free all day during school holidays. During term time I normally begin tutoring around five pm, and earlier on a Friday. I am free some mornings as well.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

KS3, KS4, KS5

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

I prepare students for GCSE and A Level exams.

I run a highly effective retake course for GCSE English Language.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

Have access to Skype, so not a problem.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I have seen students do far better than they thought they possibly could as a result of my help. Tuition with a qualified teacher will bring about big gains.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

I have taught and trained at a variety of schools; in a high achieving private school and a range of state schools. Such variety means I can cater for all students, having had experience teaching a range of abilities and personality types.

I have taught all key stages including A Level- and again, have taught to a range of abilities at each.

As well as being a teacher I am also an examiner of GCSE English Language. Because of this, I know exactly what students have to do to succeed in the English exams, and how best to prepare for them- already when in KS3, or closer to the exam when they are in Year 10 or 11.

I have also tutored the subject for 7 years now, starting the summer I graduated university. I have had many successes over the years, and at all levels: I have helped students make big gains in the earlier years, and enabled older pupils to fulfil their potential.

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

I teach in a school, so yes.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I did my PGCE at the Institute of Education, now UCL.

Simon has been tutoring my son, who is in year 8, since January; supplementing what he is doing in school and adding to his skills where necessary. As a result of the lessons, my son has a much better understanding of the work that is being covered in class and as well as this his skills are developing at a much faster pace. Would really recommend Simon for key stage 3.

Druvi. Parent

My son, now in year 10, has been having lessons with Simon since September. Prior to the lessons, his interest in the subject and his confidence in his ability were both low. During the course of the year I must say that this has changed a great deal. He has much more of an interest in English and feels much more confident in his writing ability. Simon has really managed to get the best out of him; something other tutors have failed to do. Really recommend him.

Simon has been helping me with A Level English. He helped me a lot with my coursework, which made a big difference and I'm grateful for his input. He has also helped me prepare for my exam- together we prepared some really good notes, and I'm now much more confident. Really recommend him for A Level.
