Enthusiastic PGCSE-qualified professional English tutor based in Cambridge (DBS certified), specialising in exam preparation and proof-reading.

Methodology

If exam preparation is what you need, then I specialise in exam techniques and how to ensure that you get the best possible scores for each question. Generally, this entails understanding how to effectively structure a response for the different task requirements.

Furthermore, I am a qualified Cambridge ESOL examiner, with in depth knowledge of the Cambridge ESOL exam suite.

I also offer proofreading tutorials, successfully proofreading dissertations for students at Columbia University, the University of Warwick and most recently Cambridge University.

Experience

I am an English teacher with over 10 years of experience including GCSE, A level and University preparation. I also teach general English proficiency for students whose first language is not English.

I currently work at Abbey College Cambridge, currently the best performing GCSE and A Level college in Cambridge.

Most recently I have been teaching IELTS and the GCSE language and literature courses (AQA). I have successfully taught 12 clients of varying ages, each with their own specific goals.

Thank you for considering David as a potential tutor for your child. It its with great pleasure that I take the opportunity to recommend him as an outstanding teacher. As a former colleague who I have known for over two years, I can attest to the high quality of David's ability to instruct and the deep knowledge he possesses of his field. He is enthusiastic, clear and very engaging to students. His pupils, many of whom I have shared in the past, openly expressed to me they enjoy his lessons and they confidently progresses to meeting their own personal objective under his guidance. David also has a welcoming and warm presence, which is well suited to provide encouragement and support to all age groups and abilities. Based on my professional relationship with David, I am very happy to provide a recommendation for his services.
