I have taught English, History, History of Art and German to A-Level with a high success rate. I have written, directed and produced several plays, including a production at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre. I attended Eton College and prepare future Etonians for their interviews. I have a 100% success rate in this field. Additionally, I work with students to build the perfect personal statement for which I have also had 100% success.

My Approach to Private Tuition
For me interaction is the most important thing and it’s what really distinguishes this service from what a client learns in school. There is nothing worse than a full room of students sitting in complete silence whilst a teacher rambles on in a monotone. This is why Tavistock is such a great opportunity for any learner. A teacher will come to you for a one on one interaction, creating a specific lesson plan catered to the client. Personally, my approach is very narrative focused. I will explain something in as detailed and engaging a way as possible. Trust me – the more you study, the more you learn that everything is interesting and can be made enjoyable. Even topics you think are unspeakably dull! After I have finished my explanation, it’s over to you. A student of mine will explain the subject back to me in her or his own words. When we’re both satisfied that you have a firm grasp on the material we can begin to apply it. Much of what I teach revolves around delivery and presentation (essays, creative work, talking about yourself, speeches). It is imperative that we find a method that works for you that we can apply to a whole range of projects. I am extremely persistent in rooting out your weaknesses and strengths. I am highly skilled at rectifying or playing up to them accordingly.
