Information about John
I have a keen interest in literature especially the classics and would like to develop young minds to a greater appreciation of good literature. I enjoy drama and often go to the theatre to see current productions. One of my hobbies is writing and after attending the London School of Journalism, I have one novel published, The Great Venetian Art Robbery` and several short stories. I am a proud member of the Royal Society of Literature
APPROACH TO TUTORING
I prefer just a few selected students (not dozens !!) because I think providing quality tutoring more important than commercial expansion. Knowing how critical good tutoring is to examination success I am a hard but fair taskmaster to get results. And results I have had ! Ample testimonies from grateful parents and tutees prove this. Any prospective student will be encouraged to give his/her best and follow the pathway I set for his/her future career.

Experience: TEACHING EXPERIENCE
I have taught English in several countries, though now I prefer to be a professional tutor. I have been tutoring professionally for the past five years and my students in 2013/14 have gained `A`s and `B`s in the Scottish Intermediate II and Highers examination.
