Experienced English Tutor specialising in Exam Preparation(11+, 13+) and GCSE English Language and Literature

Methodology

Most of my students do not enjoy the subject when I first meet them. My aim is to find an area of the subject that links to something they enjoy. Through this, I feel that a connection can be made and an improvement in the subject is extremely attainable.

Experience

I have been preparing students for exams at schools such as Haberdashers', Highgate, City of London, Merchant Taylors' Haileybury and more. I have also helped students gain excellent results at GCSE level. I specialise in improving students who struggle in the subject.

I've been studying English with him for more than 2 years. He always tries to be his best. He doesn't hesitate to help me if it's for improving my English ability. Lessons with him are more than just learning expressions and memorizing vocabularies. Even though I normally speak English once a week, when I have lessons with him, I feel natural when I speak English. I've got not to get confused with situations like I should have a conversation in English. I'm so glad to get his lessons and I hope lots of people get to know him.
