Experience: I have been teaching students on a one to one basis for well over a decade specialising in English and the Humanities subjects. I have also taught small group lessons and in schools. I have a positive track record of success with the pupils I have taught helping them to achieve their desired grades. The lessons are specifically structured to the course and syllabus each student is taking to ensure that they understand the course material for the exam. Moreover, I set homework at the end of each lesson that needs to be completed each week.

review(s) for Simon.
Simon has taught my son three lessons now. He has recommended further reading material, and revised topics my son is learning. My son says that the sessions are focused and structured. Simon has shown flexibility as he has moved the session time when we could not make the prescheduled. appointment.
Simon is excellent, always on time and gives a full hour of tutoring. My son lacks confidence in English and is currently working with Simon on the war poems and Macbeth.Simon sets homework so he can monitor progress and my son is gaining confidence and understanding which is what we wanted.
Simon is a great tutor and has helped my daughter a lot in her exam preparation! He keeps her engaged and and has boosted her confidence and motivation. Brilliant lesson, very clear explanation and good use of example.Simon is a highly competent tutor and I recommend him.
Simon is a professional tutor who understands how to break down the history topic to engage the student.
My nephew enjoyed his classes and said he learnt a lot from him.
I will happily recommend him.
Simon has started tutoring my son in English and we have already seen an improvement in his work and his confidence. Thanks
Only had one lesson so far but my son was very happy with Simon.
My daughter was pleased with the few lessons she had . Simon broke down the topics in history and she understood how to answer the exam questions.
Was always on time ! Very pleased 😀;;
Simon has been tutoring my son in English KS3 for a couple of weeks now. They`re still getting to know each other but Simon clearly knows his stuff and I think the tutoring is already paying off.
Very good tutor, really helped my brother during his SATs.
