I approach teaching by maximising utility and adherence.
This means teaching the most common, useful and relevant content primarily (in languages, this is grammar and vocabulary). Following those things, we move on to cover niche or less important rules and principles afterwards.
All contextual work is applied to a student’s interests rather than to abstract or less captivating topics for the student. This helps adherence and actually intrigues students.
I teach to foster the speedy acquisition of content, and to move towards practical use of that content as swiftly as possible.

Great tutor! I had Oliver at a SCA coffee course in Leeds, a passionate guy, with a huge knowledge about coffee. It's been a great experience and very helpful.
I've known Oliver for over 10 years now, and I am very lucky to be able to call him a good friend. Oliver is probably the most passionate person I know and always puts everything into his projects. He is able to strike up conversation and build relationships with everybody he crosses paths with. I would highly recommend his services because not only will you learn a substantial amount, you will also be able to enjoy his positive energy and mentality.
Oliver is an excellent tutor, with a strong foundation in both Spanish and French, having actually spent time living in both Spain and France. Over the last year he has helped me become proficient in both languages and I couldn't recommend anyone better!
Met Oliver through a close friend, he's a great guy whom I've found very patient and knowledgable! His course is really well thought out, it's structured in a much more efficient and practical way than other tutors or courses I've used in the past. Would whole heartedly recommend to anyone looking for quick progress!
You are a splendid teacher and you helped me become not only better in French but also a better human being.
Oliver was recommended to me by a friend studying French in Leeds. He’s extremely clear, patient and always willing to go that extra mile. I couldn’t ask for a better tutor! I’d reccomend Oliver without hesitation. The best language teacher I have ever had!
Oliver is a fantastic tutor. He takes the time to understand what you want out of the sessions and goes above and beyond to deliver exceptional results. It's a 10/10 service and would highly recommend learning from him.
Oliver is an amazing tutor who is extremely capable of adapting to each persons individual needs. He really helped my pronunciation and vocabulary expand!!
He is extremely patient and I’ve come away from every session feeling as if I have made great progress. Can’t recommend him enough!
