For your reassurance, the first hour’s tuition is always free. I am also highly skilled and experienced at helping students resolve problems with motivation and study discipline. In fact, if a student is willing to try one simple technique I suggest, I guarantee that they will leave any such problems behind.

How would you describe your teaching style?

1. The online lessons proceed precisely the way face-to-face tuition would, except that with the use of Google Docs we are able to go through student work line-by-line in a much more detailed way than is possible face-to-face. 2. As the tuitions field is so rife with unprofessionalism, I should also emphasise that I are extremely reliable and punctual. 3. I know the set texts, previous exam papers and the entire syllabus inside-out, and the shortcuts and hacks to guaranteed exam success. 4. I teach students how to easily achieve full marks in Reading Comprehension by analysing previous exam questions in detail and accurately anticipating the types that will come up each year. I teach Idea, Evidence and Explanation, the one central skill that applies right throughout all English exams.

What qualifications do you have?

2.1 Honours degree from Glasgow University in English and History.

Tell us about your experience...

Twenty-five years' of teaching and one-to-one tutoring in the Scottish education system, with excellent results for hundreds of students at all levels. Former one-to-one clients include internationally renowned journalists, novelists, politicians, musicians, one well-known fashion designer and one highly controversial lawyer(!).

What locations do you tutor in?

All of central Scotland.

What is your personal message to students?

My students are set regular homework and I mark it in much greater detail than most tutors, and then explain fully every single mistake and the principles behind them. The one thing you will not get from me is vagueness! Sound too good to be true? Get in touch and I'll explain all of this in detail.
