« As a parent I only wish I had found Deany and Star Student earlier. It was a tremendous help to my son when he was sitting his Higher English. His Critical Essays and Close Reading skills improved dramatically. In particular he was taught exam technique which I have no doubt helped him to achieve his final result. I will not hesitate to contact Deany and Star Student when my daughter is sitting Higher English . »

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

It's exactly like face to face tutoring only better. I know I would say that, but the results speak for themselves. I assign each pupil their own classroom which parents have access to too. Every week I post a lesson along with a unique video going over the lesson, the pupil returns the assignment to me in their classroom . I mark it and then we have a Skype discussion going over it. It really does work very well - young people love working this way- it's an efficient use of everyone's time and they are so comfortable with the internet. Parents are happy too - they can keep an eye on all work and communication between us and they don't have to travel or clear the dinner dishes from the kitchen table!

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I've had a varied career because of my love of language, but more than anything, I love teaching.There is no feeling like watching a student make progress and achieve what they are capable of. When I agree to take you on I will be 100% committed to supporting you in this task.

Experience

I've been a teacher for 20 years, marked exam papers f and have tutored extensively. I've also written for national newspapers for 10 years too.

yes.

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I tutor a variety of students which is what I love about tutoring.What they all have in common is the desire to focus on how to get a good grade. I tutor children who are home schooled; I tutor children who are sick and can't get to school, I tutor children who play sport at a top level which requires them to travel and I tutor pupils who need extra help to achieve a good grade. I tutor pupils in America and Europe and I'm available during school hours as well as in the evenin.

As a parent I only wish I had found Deany and Star Student earlier. It was a tremendous help to my son when he was sitting his Higher English. His Critical Essays and Close Reading skills improved dramatically. In particular he was taught exam technique which I have no doubt helped him to achieve his final result. I will not hesitate to contact Deany and Star Student when my daughter is sitting Higher English .

​The beauty of online tuition is that you don't have to leave the house - that's really quite a bonus when you live in a rural location, have a busy house, work commitments adn other family members to juggle. Cameron just got on with it himself - I occasionally logged into his classroom and had a look at what was happening but it all seemed to be going on without any demands on me. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Star Student .

last year I needed an A for my course at university- my English teacher predicted a C. I liked the idea of not having to go to someone's house and keeping in contact with Deany through Skype was a very successful way of communicating. I was able to log on to my own classroom and always received a prompt reply, keeping my interest going. With the help and encouragement I received from Deany, much to the amazement of all I managed to gain my A in higher English and I am now in my 3rd month at university.

Star student has enabled me to become more confident in all aspects of English Higher; from close reading to critical essays. The weekly assignments allow you to practice skills which are used in exams and the in depth feedback given was crucial so that I was able to improve. I would highly recommend Star Student for first class tutoring.
