I am a long-time teacher, lecturer, examiner and professional tutor with a patient and supportive approach.

I have taught 5000+ hours at over fifteen schools and colleges, four major universities and with hundreds of private students. This has ranged from general/casual learning to exam and entrance preparation at all levels.

In addition to weekly supplementary tutoring, I also offer a homeschool tutoring programme and am happy to take full responsibility for the independent delivery of the curriculum.

I passed my PhD in English at the University of Leicester. I also hold a Masters with Distinction from Oxford Brookes University and a First Class undergraduate degree from Loughborough University. I hold qualifications in educational psychology and in supporting adult dyslexia.

My approach is friendly, gentle and supportive but extremely professional.

At the heart of my tutoring is how important it is that a student believes in their own ability to learn and to progress. If there is one word I hear my students kindly use to describe my qualities it would be 'patience'. Yet I never feel like my patience is tested - I love the challenge of finding new, innovative ways to help them understand their subject.

At home, I live in Oxfordshire with my wife Kate and two stepsons. I enjoy music festivals, running and long walks with our dog Maple.
