Information about Marcus
I graduated from the University of Oxford in 2017 with a high 2:1 in Classics (Literae Humaniores), and am currently based in the City of London. I have been studying Latin and Ancient Greek since I was 11, and my degree allowed me to combine my love for languages, literature, and philosophy.
My degree specialized in Latin and Ancient Greek language and literature, and ancient and modern philosophy. I have A-Levels in Latin, Ancient Greek, English Literature, and Religious Studies, with additional AS-Levels in Drama & Theatre Studies and Maths, and I have 11 A*s at GCSE. I was awarded several prizes for academic excellence throughout my time at secondary school, as well as prizes for outstanding performance in internal exams set by my Oxford college in my final year.
I have been through the 13+ Common Entrance and Scholarship systems and am therefore very aware of the specific challenges posed especially by independent school scholarship exams, and I consider myself well-placed to provide tutoring in preparation for them.
Availability: I am very flexible with my availability.
Willing to travel: Home Only
Experience: My GCSE English students have all achieved 9s in both English language and English literature papers.
My 11+ and 13+ successes include students who have gained a King`s Scholarship to Eton College and an academic exhibition to Magdalen College School, Oxford.
Many of my 11+ and 13+ students have successfully applied to schools such as Eton College, Westminster School, Winchester College, Magdalen College School (Oxford), Oxford High School, and Cheltenham Ladies` College.

Feedback For Marcus (7)
Marcus is an excellent tutor, very approachable and serious. He was able to give my son precious feedback but also insightful tips to express himself in his essays. He was also very available.
I have never met any tutor better than Marcus - he is genuinely the most talented, patient, responsible and passionate gentleman I have ever had the luck to meet with. Marcus provides tailored English tutoring to my niece whose potential is fully unlocked through his kind assistance. Surely he has a sound knowledge of the 11+ test and could pass on his precious experience to help bring up the best of every tutee. He not only sharpened my niece`s English ability, but also strengthened her capacity in logical thinking. We couldn`t thank more of him!
Very good tutor and highly recommend!
