Having completed both a CELTA and TYLEC (Trinity College Young Learners Extension Certificate), I am well versed in teaching methodologies.
By using interactive exercises, engaging closely with students, monitoring and providing operating adequate support and operating within the students Zone of Proximal Development, I believe students of any level can rapidly gain skills in any subject under my tutelage.
I also emphasise a warm approach to students, creating a bond of trust that cements learning as part of a developing relationship.
I have been teaching for five years at the British Council in Asia and at several International schools. I also conducted private and small group lessons during this time.
I have several enthusiastic students who can attest to my teaching ability.
I am also a published journalist and freelance writer.
I am an experienced tutor with over five years of teaching experience with the British Council.
I have a B.A in English Literature from UCL, as well as a CELTA from International House and TYLEC with the British Council.
My specialities are in the English language, literature, writing, composition, critical thinking, IELTS, exam technique and essay writing.
I am a friendly and enthusiastic teacher with a real passion for these subjects, and can happily provide many references from happy students who have succeeded thanks to my help.
I am based around the London area but can also teach via Skype. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
I do recommend Tom’s classes to any student who is looking for a very patient and engaging tutor.
I appreciate his friendly and professional approach.
The sessions are catered to my needs and interests, more importantly, Tom helps me strengthen my understanding of Literature by focusing on the key components of each work -
I'm really pleased.
I have known Tom for over ten years and have only heard good things.
He is super-bright, an agile thinker, reflective yet energising at the same time, and passionate about English. If you are a high-flyer, Tom will stretch you. If you need empathetic support, he’s full of caring compassion too.
Tom’s experience overseas gives him a deep understanding of what non-native speakers find challenging. He was very highly thought-of in his posts overseas and brings that reputation with him when teaching English Language and Literature.
