Richard - Preston Park - School English

Methodology

I am an Oxford graduate who is dedicated to releasing your enthusiasm and academic potential.

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

English as a Foreign Language

Having taught small groups of various nationalities, ages and levels, readying them for English Proficiency exams, I am well prepared to support your development. I can work to a specific exam or syllabus, or instead work towards a personal goal (such as developing your English language skills for a particular purpose, such as academic English). I can teach any level, and can use materials to suit your learning style, whether this be books and literature, film, music, traditional worksheets, or a combination of these.

GCSE and A-Level Tutoring

With a degree from Oxford and experience of secondary school teaching to various GCSE syllabuses, I can turn your GCSE and A-Level areas of weakness into areas of examination success! We can work together on specific topics, texts or modules. Or we can work on skills such as essay writing.

Oxbridge and University Interview Preparation

I have supported hundreds of applicants to develop their interview technique and have an in-depth knowledge of the Oxbridge requirements and system having studied at Oxford myself. I can offer you practice interviews for Oxford, Cambridge or other universities.

Academic Writing and Personal Statement Tuition

Got an essay that needs proof-reading? Want to develop skills to improve your academic writing? Want to make sure your personal statement truly reflects the high-quality applicant you are? Having written over 100 academic essays at undergraduate and masters level, and having marked countless pupils' GCSE mock papers, I can work with you to make essay and application writing enjoyable!

- Tell me about your qualifications.

I gained a BA in English Language and Literature from the University of Oxford. At Oxford I enjoyed engaging with a wide range of literature whilst considering key debates about the English language. I developed particular interests in modern African literature, Old English, and the debate about what aspects of English should be taught in schools.

- How much do you charge?

English as a Foreign Language and GCSE English / Literature - £15/hour

A-Level work and academic writing sessions - £20/hour

Personal Statement and Oxbridge preparation - £25/hour

- Where do you teach?

Tuition takes place at my home in central Brighton. I am happy to travel, though there will be an extra charge for this depending on the distance.

- When are you available?

I am available weekdays, evenings and weekends.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

I teach 11-16 year olds and adults at Key Stage 3, Key Stage 4 and A-Level.

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

GCSE
iGCSE
AS and A2 Level
Oxford and Cambridge Interviews
TOEFL and IELTS

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

Whist at Oxford I worked for Netherhall Educational Association, teaching English as a Foreign Language to learners of different ages and skill levels. I also worked for Oxbridge Applications where I offered candidates one-on-one interview skills sessions and small group lateral thinking workshops, helping them to prepare excellent Oxford and Cambridge applications.

Since graduating I have worked as a secondary school teacher at a state school in Essex, where I taught whole classes children from 11 - 16 years of age, ultimately preparing them for GCSE English and English literature exams. I am currently a part-time Masters student at the University of Sussex, with plenty of time left over for tutoring!

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Yes, at enhanced level.
