As an Oxford University graduate with a distinction in my teaching qualification, I have worked in well-known prep. schools for many years, successfully preparing pupils for 11+ Pre Tests, 13+ Common Entrance and 13+ Scholarship examinations to many of the top senior schools in the UK. As well as running various academic departments I have held posts including Head of Seniors, Director of Studies, Head of Scholars and Deputy Head.
I have also helped to advise parents on public school choices at 13+ and have good links with a number of heads and admissions tutors. Furthermore, I have worked as an academic mentor, monitoring and supporting academic progress across the spectrum, including devising and overseeing personalised revision and study programmes.
I have taught various subjects up to 13+ Common Entrance level; these include English, History, Latin and Religious Studies. I have also helped more generally with academic preparation, helping pupils to develop good study and revision techniques across the board, and overseeing individual revision programmes.
Furthermore, I have prepared children for scholarship examinations to many of the top senior schools in the UK. I have taught English, History and Religious Studies at scholarship level, as well as helping with current affairs and General Paper preparation, essay writing, and also interview technique. As well as preparing pupils for the Common Academic Scholarship papers I have also prepared them for school-specific papers such as the Eton King's Scholarship, Winchester Election and Radley Scholarship.
My former pupils, many of whom won scholarships, have moved on to schools including Eton College, Radley, Harrow, Wellington, Sherborne, Marlborough, Shrewsbury, Bradfield, Charterhouse, Ampleforth, Milton Abbey, Stowe, Rugby, Oundle, Winchester, Uppingham, Sedbergh, Fettes, Glenalmond, Cheltenham, Strathallan, St Edward's, Culford and elsewhere.
Please note that, given my school commitments, I am available for private tutoring only during the major school holidays. Additionally, please be aware that my diary fills several months in advance.
As a general rule I teach for a minimum of two hours per visit.
