Experienced teacher (former Deputy Head). Oxford University graduate. 11+ & 13+ Common Entrance tuition to schools including Eton, Winchester, Marlborough, Uppingham, Rugby, Radley, Stowe & many more.

About the lesson

Experienced school teacher - at various times Deputy Head, Director of Studies and Head of Scholars.

I have taught a number of different subjects and successfully prepared hundreds of pupils for entrance (11+ and 13+) and scholarship examinations to top senior schools throughout the United Kingdom. I have also helped to advise parents on school choices. Furthermore, I have extensive experience as a private tutor and have held resident tutor posts both in the UK and overseas.

I have taught English, History, Latin and Religious Studies (TPR) at 13+ Common Entrance level. I have also helped more generally with academic preparation, helping pupils to develop good study techniques across the board and overseeing individual revision programmes. Furthermore, I have prepared pupils for scholarship examinations to many top senior schools.

At 13+ scholarship level I have taught English, History and Religious Studies, and also helped with current affairs and General Paper preparation, essay writing, and interview technique. As well as preparing candidates for the Common Academic Scholarship exam I have also helped them work towards school-specific papers such as the Eton King's Scholarship (most recent scholarship in 2022), Winchester Election and Radley Scholarship.

In addition, I have helped pupils to prepare for 11+ entry assessments. These include the widely-used ISEB Common Pre-Test as well as school specific assessments such as the Eton List Test. I also have significant experience of assisting pupils with interview preparation at this level. To this end I am happy to consider taking on pupils in years five and six, although the majority of my teaching is at year seven and eight level and that is really my specialism.

About David (Experienced Teacher & Specialist Tutor)

As an experienced prep. school Director of Studies I have a strong understanding of the academic requirements and demands at this level. As a previous Head of Scholars I am familiar with 13+ scholarship routes and requirements at a significant number of senior schools. As a former Head of Boarding and Deputy Head Pastoral I understand the "bigger picture" - good teaching by itself is not enough to guarantee success.

I have an excellent record of pupils earning top grades and winning scholarships to major senior schools at 13+. My former pupils, many of whom won awards, have moved on to schools including Eton College, Radley, Harrow, Wellington, Sherborne, Marlborough, Shrewsbury, Bradfield, Charterhouse, Ampleforth, Milton Abbey, Stowe, Rugby, Oundle, Winchester, Uppingham, Sedbergh, Fettes, Glenalmond, Cheltenham, Strathallan, St Edward's, Culford and elsewhere.

Details

Prior to taking on any new teaching I always schedule an initial consultation/first lesson (ideally face to face, but otherwise by Zoom) for which, obviously, I do not charge.

Please note that, given my school commitments, I tend to be available for private teaching during the major holidays only. Therefore, I am unable to take on long-term roles and my tutoring tends to be relatively "concentrated" - interview preparation and mock interviews (at both pre-test and scholarship level), specific subject revision and reinforcement, focused exam paper preparation, and more general academic mentoring - helping to devise and oversee individual revision and study programmes to guide pupils' preparation in advance of exams. Additionally, please be aware that my diary fills several months in advance.
