Information about Ross

I am a director and playwright with 5 years experience in teaching young people and adults. I am the artistic director of a 15-time Off West End Award-nominated theatre company in London that specialises in literary adaptation and historical new writing. I have written three novels and seven plays which my company has produced in London and on tour. As well as my work as an English tutor, I also have a proven track record teaching History and Triple Science. I enjoy participating in storytelling in all forms, be it written, spoken, performative or interactive technology.

I specialise in exam technique preparation, essay style and structure, as well as Shakespeare. I try to tailor each lesson to what the student needs help with the most, in order for them to get the most out of their time with me. Often students can feel overlooked and unsupported in large classrooms and so I like to take the time to support and foster their understanding of the set texts and core theories as well as engage them in debate to encourage and stimulate their interest in the subject. My goal is to make the lessons as enjoyable as they are informative, and encourage the students to become invested in the books they study, and more critically coherent in their analysis of texts. Literature and reading is about passion and objective analysis, and my goal is to encourage all my students to care about these texts as much as I do.

Availability: Excellent availability both during the week and during weekends. I have the ability to be flexible and tailor the time of lessons to suit your needs.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I am a full-time active personal tutor, working mainly with GSCE and A-Level students in English Language and Literature, History and Science. I currently have 35+ students that I see on a weekly/bi-weekly basis, as well as working for two London schools as an English teacher. I am familiar with OCR, AQA and Edexcel boards, and all the relevant assessment objectives. During my work in the theatre industry I have led many workshops and outreach projects designed to build confidence and create new creative skills within young people and adults, and I am obviously comfortable teaching shakespeare in terms of language analysis, and literary context, as well as essay structure and writing development.

My daughter has enjoyed her lessons from day one and has found Ross to be an inspirational tutor with a wealth of knowledge on his subjects. She is 17 and probably old enough to leave her own feedback, so on her behalf, we will recommend him without any hesitation! Thanks Ross, your lessons make all the difference.

He is a very friendly, approachable tutor. My daughter connected with him very well and she has enjoyed his tuition. Ross boosted her confidence and she was leaning a lot and was getting ready for GCSE exam. Sadly 2020 become the year we won’t forget and she isn’t able to show what she has learnt. Still Ross has supposed her for last 6 month and we were very happy with him.

Ross did a great job tutoring my son towards a fantastic result for his English Literature GCSE. I particularly commend him for managing to instil an interest in the subject through his engaging style of tutoring, which allowed my son to grow in confidence and exceed his own expectation. Thank you Ross!
