Methodology

With 26 years of classroom teaching, exam marking and tutoring experience, I offer my skills, experience and expertise to the students to achieve top grades in their GCSE English Language and Literature exams.

English Language & Literature.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I hold a Masters Degree in English Language and Literature and a Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Studies in Education from Kingston University.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

Students who are 14-16 years of age.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE English Language and Literature.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I meticulously focus on the key skills tested in exams through effective teaching, regular assessments, detailed marking of students' work and robust practice. These best teaching practices lift the learning spirits of students and enable them to achieve the top grades.

After teaching and developing the key skills required to meet the success criteria for the exam, I give my students very rigorous practice in attempting various past and practice 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 skills.

All these above mentioned good practices and strategies energize my students to reach their full potential.

One of the qualities I pride myself in is my ability to engage my students who genuinely feel 'English is easy now.'

Every student achieves the best learning outcomes alongside their peers. I, therefore, prefer teaching in groups and all students achieve landmark success.

26 years of experience as an English Teacher, Teacher Trainer, English Exam marker and tutor of English.

Rates

Rate for a 1-hour lesson. : £15/h

Details

The first lesson is one-to-one with the student in the 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 a minimum of 2 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. All lessons are online since the lockdown started. All lessons are for 2 hours.

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.

A highly competent and knowledgeable teacher who is at the top end of the game when we talk about exam preparation. With such beauty and ease he made the most difficult subject so interesting and engaging that I never wanted to miss any lesson. Every minute of his lesson we learn something and he explains everything with so much detail and common sense that the confidence of the student grows in each lesson.I ended up with A* in Language and Literature. Thanks Mr Harry.

Harry has been teaching my son for nearly 2 months and the boy finds his lessons very useful and helpful. I am really happy that Harry always contacts me to give a feedback about my son`s work or to discuss any issue. He is a tutor who takes in account the individual needs of each student, so I believe he will help my son to achieve higher grades in the approaching GCSE English exams.

Harry J is an excellent English tutor.

My son`s English level has improved by a couple of grades in a relatively short time period. Everything Harry has taught him is directly relevant to his GCSE English exam.

Harry has a friendly manner and ensures that the material taught is interesting and this has led to a new found enthusiasm from my son and hence lots of independent study through work set by Harry.

All parents concerned with their child's GCSE English,fear not..Harry J is around!
