Experience

I have six years experience tutoring for 11+ and Common Entrance examinations. My pupils have gained places at Charterhouse School, Surrey; Sherborne School, Dorset; Kew House School, London; St. James School, Surrey; Emmanuel School, London; John Lyon School, Harrow; and St. Benedict's School, London. I have successfully coached students for the audition and interview process at New College School, Oxford. In addition, I have prepared candidates for the Eton College exam and interview process. I also tutor for grammar school examinations outside London; all my students passed their Buckinghamshire and Berkshire 11+ exams in 2014.

This academic year all my students have gained places at their first choice schools, including: Godolphin and Latymer School, Merchant Taylors' School (with an academic scholarship), Kew House School, Holland Park School; St. Benedict's School; Ibsock Place; in London. Others schools have included Wychwood School in Oxford and St James' School in Surrey.

I tutor for 7+ exams with a high degree of success. My students have won places at Abingdon Prep School, Oxford; Falcon School, London; King's House School, London; and Port Regis School, Dorset. Most recently one of my students gained a place at King's House School on a full bursary.

I tutor English and Maths up to GCSE. I'll typically begin working with these students at the outset of the autumn or spring term in year 11 until their exams the following May. Last year all my GCSE students went up at least two grade boundaries.

I do have an up to date DBS certificate.
