A fully qualified and outstanding English teacher. Offering a £10 online discount!

Methodology

As a tutor, I take a positive and supportive approach to learning and it is not unusual for my students to make two or more levels progress in one academic year. To achieve this success, I equip students with tried and tested techniques for each question and ensure that these skills are successfully developed in time for the exam.

I also recognise the importance of self-belief and independence and this helps my students to achieve other goals, such as improving their confidence in class or rediscovering their enthusiasm for English.

Experience

I am a fully qualified and committed English teacher with ten years` experience in helping students prepare for their exams.

I have worked across all the major exam boards helping students excel in GCSEs, IGCSEs, A Levels and IB examinations. My A Level students exceed their target grades and attain their first-choice university place, often submitting coursework or extended essays that are awarded full marks.

My specialism is English literature where I can draw upon a wide range of resources and expertise. I also have a strong record working with students that need a secure pass in their English language qualification.

For the last three years, I have been working as an examiner for AQA and the International Baccalaureate.

Michael's response

Almehdi's son Mohamed is a positive and engaged student. He has already made excellent progress in his writing and I am pleased that he is encouraged to read more at home and take more pride in his work. I thoroughly enjoy working with Mohamed.

I have known Michael for over 15 years and in that time he has always been someone I can turn to for sound advice and guidance.
He is a very approachable person who has a passion for helping others. This comes first hand as I have struggled for many years with dyslexia. Michael has always taken the time to show me useful strategies that gave me confidence and helped me prepare for exams and job applications.
I couldn't think of a better person to help anyone achieve there academic goals.

Michael has been a passionate and dedicated teacher for as long as I've known him.
We started teaching together in Asia over eight years ago and have also worked together as Secondary teachers in London. It has been a pleasure to see him enjoy supporting students and sharing his love of English over the years.

He is a professional and caring individual and I would certainly recommend him as a Secondary English tutor.

Micheal is a very patient, reliable,very organised and knowledgeable tutor. He really knew the A level English Literature syllabuses, what the examiners want and had a clear guidance on how the mark schemes work. He helped my daughters build up her confidence and exam technique. He brought my daughter grade up and get her into Newcastle University, which was her first choice. I really recommend Micheal highly. My daughter would not have got the grade she needed to get into Newcastle without his help.
