Rupert - Shaftesbury - History

Methodology

I believe the key to success in English is confidence. I have experience in quickly identifying learning styles and where the challenges lie. I then focus on developing confidence and ability in these specific areas.

I am experienced tutor in English & History from 11+ to A level. I also tutor Verbal Reasoning.

History BA Hons, University of York
PGCE in Secondary English, University of Buckingham

- How much do you charge?

I charge between £35 - £40 per hour, which includes reasonable travel expenses.

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I adopt a relaxed and friendly approach, and I believe in making each lesson vocal, interactive and interesting. My love for English is shared by a passion for History. I thus also have experience in developing an inquiring mind, analytical skills and essay structure.

'Rupert was an English tutor to my son William for approximately eighteen months.

He quickly identified the areas, which William found difficult and worked methodically through each one to strengthen his understanding and to build his confidence. The sessions covered a whole range of topics from descriptive writing and spelling through to comprehension, poetry and handwriting.

Rupert worked steadily with William and with his patience, praise and professionalism, he instilled confidence in areas which William had found challenging. As a result William's self esteem grew and his improved knowledge of English enabled him to he pass the entrance exam and secure a place at his first choice senior school.' Vanessa B

'I have known Rupert as Zacky's private tutor for English. Zacky was not confident enough and not doing all that well in school (Magdalen School) and I was told to look for a back up school.

I employed Rupert to give Zacky some English tutoring for his Common Entrance. Zacky developed the confidence and inspiration needed for his exam and he achieved 92 % in his English exam!

All this is due to Rupert's dedication and knowing what to prepare.' Seema D
