After teaching and developing the key skills required to meet the success criteria for exam, I give my students very rigorous practice in attempting various past papers to ensure fast paced progress. Students' work is regularly marked in detail and they are provided with in-depth comments about gaps in their learning, areas of focus and the methods to achieve the required outcomes. They are also given intense practice in exam time management to enable them to complete their paper within the given time.

All these above mentioned good practices and strategies energize my students to reach their full potential in GCSE English Language and Literature.

Details

The first lesson is one-to-one with the student in presence of their parents. The learner attempts an assessment in reading and writing skills. After marking, the student is told the result and the tutor consults with the learner and their parents about the best way forward in the light of the outcome of the assessment. This lesson is minimum of 1.5 hours long.This one-to-one interaction in the presence of parents provides the student and the tutor with an opportunity to learn more about each other.

hat a superb teacher he is! Very calm, very expressive and highly experienced. He identifies pupils needs straightaway and then pushes them to achieve their full potential. He reinvigorated the interest in English which my son had lost.

What we liked the best was his deep and detailed grasp of English Exams and how they are marked. He prepares students for each question in a way that they can get maximum marks.

My son started with Harry in mid August 2015 and he has turned his English C grade into an A* in GCSE Exams 2016.

Harry has focused my son to read into the minds of the author and developed his inquisitive side which broadened my son's imagination. He started enjoying English while learning from Harry.

He is a superb tutor with patience,knowledge and willingness to develop your child to aim high.
