Specialist tuition for 13+ Common Entrance & scholarship exams and 11+ pre tests in London, Surrey, Berkshire, Hampshire & Oxfordshire.

Methodology

Oxford University graduate and experienced prep school teacher - at various times Director of Studies, Head of Scholars and Deputy Head.

I have taught a number of different subjects and successfully prepared hundreds of pupils for entrance (11+ and 13+) and scholarship examinations to top boarding senior schools throughout the United Kingdom. I have also helped to advise parents on senior school choices and entry requirements and I have good links with many heads and admissions tutors. Furthermore, I have extensive experience as a private tutor and have held resident tutor posts both in the UK and overseas.

I have taught English, History, Latin and Religious Studies (TPR) at 13+ Common Entrance level. I have also helped more generally with academic preparation, helping pupils to develop good study techniques across the board and overseeing individual revision programmes. Furthermore, I have prepared pupils for scholarship examinations to many top senior schools. I have taught English, History and Religious Studies at scholarship level, and also helped with current affairs and General Paper preparation, essay writing, and interview technique. As well as preparing candidates for the Common Academic Scholarship exam I have also helped them work towards school-specific papers such as the Eton King's Scholarship, Winchester Election and Radley Scholarship.

In addition, I have helped pupils to prepare for 11+ entry assessments. These include the widely-used ISEB Common Pre-Test as well as school specific assessments such as the Eton List Test. I also have significant experience of assisting pupils with interview preparation at this level. To this end I am happy to consider taking on pupils in years five and six, although the majority of my teaching is at year seven and eight level and that is really my specialism.

Experience

As a former prep. school Director of Studies I have a strong understanding of the academic requirements and demands at this level. As a former Head of Scholars I am familiar with 13+ scholarship routes and requirements at a significant number of senior schools. As a former Head of Boarding and Deputy Head Pastoral I understand the "bigger picture" - good teaching by itself is not enough to guarantee success.

I have an excellent record of pupils earning top grades and winning scholarships to major senior schools at 13+. My former pupils, many of whom won awards, 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.

Details

You may be charged a fee (currently £29) for contacting me via this website. I am very happy to refund this should we subsequently arrange tuition. Whilst I do not offer a free starter lesson, prior to taking on any new teaching I always schedule an initial consultation (ideally face to face, but otherwise by Zoom) for which, obviously, I do not charge.

Please note that, given my school commitments, I am available for private tutoring during the major holidays only. 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 when teaching face-to-face, and one hour per lesson when teaching online.
