Information about Robert

I consistently receive 5* ratings from parents and my students received a 100% pass rate in 2017 for Maths and English (GCSEs and A Levels). I have six years` experience in education and this is my fourth year as a full-time private tutor.

I have experience of AQA, Eduqas and Edexcel specifications in English Language and Literature as well as every major specification for Maths (both at Foundation and Higher level). I`m familiar with all set texts for Literature and have worked with students on all major GCSE poetry anthologies. I have an MA in Modern Literature and am currently completing my PhD in Creative writing through part time study at the University of Leicester.

All my students achieve excellent results in Maths and English, whether it`s trying to secure that grade 4 or aiming for that 9. 2017 saw another group of excellent results at GCSE and A Level, as well as some great progress from my KS3 students.

I am a full-time private tutor so I can devote my time to professional one-to-one tuition. I can help with exam preparation, revision plans and time-management. I am always available via email for any extra advice.

I have a friendly and relaxed manner but ensure all my students get the most out of my sessions, and my students` results speak for themselves.

I can provide lessons in English Language and Literature, as well as Maths and English as a Foreign Language.

I am a practicing poet and singer-songwriter, and also offer creative writing classes as well as guitar lessons.

Outside of education, I enjoy travelling and I run a monthly spoken word night in Kettering that is now in its fourth year. I also stood for parliament in my hometown in the 2015 and 2017 General Elections.

Availability: Completely flexible to suit student.

Willing to travel: 50 miles

Experience: Private Tutor since December 2012 (Maths and English)
One year as a Teaching Assistant, Form Tutor and Learning Mentor.
Voluntary and professional work as English as a Foreign Language tutor.
Provided workshops in schools and at community events.

Our son requested additional support for maths and english in the months leading up to his GCSEs. Rob was friendly, supportive, reliable and gave us, and more importantly our son, the confidence he needed to get As across the board in English, English Literature and Maths which was outstanding. Our son, though quiet, took to Rob and talked highly of his approach. We were so impressed we recommended him to our son`s friend who also achieved an A in Maths. Sadly Rob does not teach A level otherwise we would have happily re employed him.

Had a nervous teenager with a last chance retake who was unsure about what to do and two weeks to go before the exam. Rob came in most days for a lesson and got that boy working and his confidence grew day by day until he looked like an old hand. Robs a pleasure to have around, is personable and laughs at my jokes! Cant go wrong!

THE BEST TUTOR EVER!
I had never learned English Before.
I came from Poland to UK without the knowledge of the English language. I knew only a few basic English phrases and I had a English book from my 14 years old daughter.
Rob helped me to understand how to build sentences in English. I`m very happy because now I can properly communicate with my team at work, and I can work in my profession in UK :)
I`m sure that with Robert help I will reach another progressions within the next 3 months.
Robert as a English tutor is absolutely the best!
Don`t hesitate if you want to learn or improve your English, you won`t be disappointed.
And also Tutor Hunt service is fabulous because you can find Robert here!
Thank you Robert!

Robert is a competent tutor and has a great rapport with teenagers. My son is expressing significantly more confidence in Maths because Robert carefully fits the sessions to meet his needs.
