Information about David

English teachers, like all teachers, do a heroic job, but sometimes what they are able to give just isn`t enough, with the pressures of the classroom and school life in general. I aim to supply that extra attention and focus that an individual needs to make sense of it all, and which, for whatever reason, may not be available at school.

I am no longer offering general tuition for GCSE but am still available to help with the literature component, and to help improve writing abilities. I can also give guidance towards better handwriting, a neglected though still necessary skill in this digital age.

For A level and adult students, I can offer additional insights or perspectives on set texts, and help develop skills of argument and presentation.

I am particularly interested in poetry and can help here, in what is often an area of difficulty for many.

Above all I encourage students to write with clarity and elegance, helping them to make the most of the considerable power of English.

Availability: I am able to work at most times, and will try to meet students` requirements.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I have many years` experience teaching English and Communications in Further Education colleges, and have taught study skills to adult learners at the University of East London. I now focus on private tuition, but am also a professional copy editor. I will take pupils in year 10 and 11, but my focus is with those studying English at A level and beyond. I also work with adult learners in all matters relating to English or writing skills.

David was a good tutor. Polite, friendly and was an excellent help with poetry.

Nicola (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

David has been brilliant! My daughter is quite happily reading the GCSE course books and looks forward to discussing them with David. He is on time, is focussed and gives all his attention to her for the allocated time.

Siana (Mrs)

5/5 Rating

My middle child was not a confident young person, afraid of asking questions and regularly felt inadequate. It was important that I found a tutor who would understand her and not pressurise her.
I am grateful to say that David worked with my daughter and together they worked well. My daughter is now at Loughborough Uni. Due to David`s experience, understanding and expertise I have now asked him to tutor my younger child. David is a good tutor and an excellent English teacher.

5/5 Rating

David is an extremely knowledgeable and excellent tutor. He is supporting my daughter in her A level English Literature on a once a fortnight basis at our house. David is always punctual, is highly qualified and has a gentle and intellectual manner with a wealth of experience that he effectively communicates. I would thoroughly recommend him as a tutor.

David helped my daughter with Wilfred Owen poems for her English AS level. Her sessions with David gave her the confidence in the subject that she really needed and she secured a B grade which puts her in a good place for her overall A level grade.

Jonah (Mr)

5/5 Rating

David is very personable, experienced, clearly knows his subject and is able to get that knowledge across very easily. After just 2 sessions, my son is confident he can now push on and achieve a very good grade in both his AS and A level. We are very happy.
