​On the scholarship front I have particular experience of preparing pupils for the Eton King's Scholarship, Winchester Election and the Radley Scholarship.  This is in addition to the Common Academic Scholarship that is used by a large number of public schools around the country.

Additionally, I have experience of teaching a wide range of subjects from year five upwards. I have also helped to prepare pupils for 11+ assessments including the Eton List test and ISEB Pre-Test.

In addition to my subject specific teaching I have worked as a mentor up to GCSE level, monitoring and supporting academic progress across the spectrum.  This includes devising and overseeing personalised revision and study programmes whilst offering attention, guidance and encouragement in order to ensure that students fulfil their potential.  For many, this is particularly relevant and important in the run up to examinations as it provides a level of personalised, individual support that would not otherwise be possible.

Destination Schools

Over the years I have successfully prepared pupils for Common Entrance examinations to schools including Eton College, Radley, Harrow, Wellington, Marlborough, Sherborne, Shrewsbury, Bradfield, Charterhouse, Ampleforth, Glenalmond, Milton Abbey, Stowe, Rugby, Oundle and Dean Close, and entrance examinations to Winchester College.

​My former pupils have also won scholarships to Winchester College, Radley, Eton, Marlborough, Shrewsbury, Uppingham, Rugby, Abingdon, Stowe, Bradfield, The Oratory, Sedbergh, St Edward’s, Oundle, Gordonstoun, Glenalmond, Strathallan, Fettes, Royal Hospital School, Ampleforth, Culford and Downe House.

Where I Teach

As far as face-to-face teaching is concerned, as a general rule I teach in the South East of England - London, Oxfordshire, Hampshire, Berkshire, Surrey.  However, I am happy to travel any distance (within reason) although it goes without saying that the volume of teaching I am doing in any one place needs to be sufficient to make the journey worthwhile.

Charges

My standard rate for private tuition is £100 per hour. I am happy to provide a thorough breakdown of my fees on request.

 

Please note that, given my school commitments, I tend to be available for private teaching during the major holidays only. My diary also fills several months in advance. Therefore, I am unable to take on long-term roles and my tutoring tends to be relatively "concentrated" - interview preparation and mock interviews (at both pre-test and scholarship level), specific subject revision and reinforcement, focused exam paper preparation, and more general academic mentoring - helping to devise and oversee individual revision and study programmes to guide pupils' preparation in advance of exams.
