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 clients 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.Contact this Tutor
Feedback For Graham (19)
Graham is particularly good at English literature and writing, which is something we wish our son to learn and master. Highly recommend!
Graham is an excellent tutor. My son is very happy with him. Thank you Graham for helping him.
Would definitely recommend, boys feel more confident and enjoy having the one to one support and focus on their needs.
My daughter really enjoys learning with Graham. Graham has a very clam style of teaching writing and he is very knowledgeable. Graham always prepared the lessons well and send learning material to us well before the lesson. My daguther finds it fun to learn with Graham and we definitely would like to recommend Graham to everyone.
My daughter did not quite enjoy the first lesson. We had only one lesson with him which is not enough to judge Mr Graham.
Graham was very polite and kind as my daughter told me...
Graham has a nice personality which makes my daughter feel very comfortable and shes really enjoying every lesson. Strongly recommend for English lessons!
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!

Graham is an excellent tutor. He is very knowledgable with the national curriculum, not to mention his expertise in English. His teaching style is very inspiring, and my 8-year-old son has really enjoyed his lessons.

Graham helped him by going through his homework and discussing the assignment with him and giving him advice and guidance he also went through the work my son had done offering guidance so he can produce better work.

I am really happy with the support that Graham has been providing for my son particularly during these times of stay home isolation.
