Information about Graham

I`m a qualified teacher, with an MA in English language and literature from Oxford University. I tutor English at all levels at the client’s home or online. I give continuing feedback and welcome suggestions, so I recommend that parents are available during each lesson.

While I supply all the learning materials, I do not merely tick answers on worksheets. I pass on the knowledge, strategies and confidence which pupils need to deal independently with questions at school or college. I place special importance on writing skills. An author myself, I have published two books, and BBC Radio broadcast a short story I wrote.

Whatever their level, wherever they are, students have the right to an excellent education, and I endeavour to provide just that.

Availability: Please message me for my latest availability.

Willing to travel: 12 miles

Experience: I have worked in education in five countries for almost four decades. In London for over twenty years, I have taught in primary and secondary schools and tutored one-to-one or small groups at all levels. Regarding tuition, I am currently doing a lot of Primary, Year 6 Sats, 11+ and GCSE. I have extensive experience with the requirements of each exam board and access to a great range of past examination and practice papers.

My daughter did not quite enjoy the first lesson. We had only one lesson with him which is not enough to judge Mr Graham.

Writing anything in my feedback about Graham would be an understatement. Graham started teaching English to my daughter at the beginning of the year. English was never her favourite subject and she always find it least interesting and most difficult. Graham put in his best efforts to get her on his side and developed her interest in English. She is now doing pretty well and prepared to appear for 11 plus. The reason why she is prepared is Graham always prepared for the lessons in advance that developed her interest so she could enjoy English lessons. I must mention that during the lockdown Graham provided great help and support to her with Maths, VR and other elements of 11 plus preparation and I`m very thankful to him. Thank you Graham!

I am really happy with the support that Graham has been providing for my son particularly during these times of stay home isolation. Graham has set appropriate tasks on a weekly basis to improve the weaker areas and his feedback is incredibly comprehensive and thorough. This is so far being picked up by my son which I believe has been improving his understanding. I commend Graham’s efforts and highly recommend his services.
