Information about Callum

I am currently a full-time private language tutor. My previous experience includes working as a language teaching assistant at an outstanding Ofsted rated secondary school in Upminster. My role encompassed a wide range of teaching activities from 1 to 1 tuition to aiding teachers in the classroom environment. Now my specialism is 1 to 1 tuition and have been offering private lessons for 12 years. My highly effective self-made resources and tailored teaching methods have enabled students to gain significantly better than expected grades. I am extremely passionate about language teaching and hope to be able to welcome any potential students.

One of the best, committed and sincere tutors as ever is Callum. Cant thank him enough for all his help and motivating my daughter! I mean she was so scared of French as a subject and couldn`t manage to get good grades however she tried. Callum completely changed her performance in French. Not only her listening and speaking improved but she got a 8 which was absolutely unbelievable when she started with him. His teaching style is very methodical, great tools and resources. He`s an excellent teacher once can have. I always wish him all the very best! eery student deserve a tutor like him to achieve the grades they desire. Thank you Callum.

Callum is very punctual. We started having his classes few weeks back, but could find a good progress in my daughter`s recent Spanish assessment. He is very organised & professionals in his lessons. I am very happy to recommend him.

My daughter has just received an A grade (7) in her GCSE results in Spanish after having Callum as her tutor. He has been absolutely fantastic. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a Spanish tutor. My daughter is still continuing her Spanish lessons with Callum as she would like to retain her knowledge and is even learning all new and exciting things. Kudos to Callum. I cannot thank you enough.

Callum is excellent. My son really looks forward to lessons by Callum. He is very punctual, and reliable. UPDATE: you started tutoring Marvin when he was a level 4 in GCSE French and you helped him go up to level 8. Thank you very much, your teaching made Marvin love Spanish so much. I recommend you to everyone asking help for a Spanish tutor.

My daughter has been taught by Callum for a couple of months now . She has now started to enjoy Spanish and is making good progress . Callum is very professional and she enjoys the lessons . He has provided her with many resources which are really helping her . We are now more hopeful of getting a good GCSE grade when she sits her exam next year . So far so good ... I would recommend Callum to friends .

Callum quickly developed a good rapport with my son who said that he learned more in one hour with Callum than two months with his own teacher. Oran has dyslexia and Callum has been able to suggest some exam techniques that have being particularly helpful to him. I can already see the improvement in Oran’s confidence in Spanish and hopefully it will translate into a higher grade in his GCSEs. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Callum as a tutor.

Callum was a great French tutor for my daughter. When she started with him French was her least favourite subject and she was convinced she would fail. It ended up being one of her favourite subjects with Callumís tuition and she was very pleased with the grade 7 she achieved.

Callum is a professional enthusiastic tutor who is currently working really well with my 15 year old son. I would highly recommend.

Monika (Mrs)

Callum was and is an impeccable tutor, always on time and well prepared, he boosted my sons confidence in his Spanish, Callum always had resources available even outside of lessons and was very helpful. He provided feedback to him to make sure he knew how to improve and structured his learning, within an hour a week he substituted school lessons with an absence of his school teachers. Very pleased, definitely recommended Callum!

Rachel (Miss)

5/5 Rating

My daughter is really enjoying her lessons with Callum. She feels she is benefiting from having extra learning, as she was finding Spanish rather hard in some areas. Callum makes the lessons interesting and, as she would like to eventually speak fluently he is helping by doing a lot of speaking lessons. He also asks what she is learning in school so this coincides with the lessons too. Which is helping her to do any homework she may have. Callum is always friendly and polite. I would recommend him to anyone looking for some Spanish tuition.

We found Callum very efficient. He taught my son GCSE Spanish for nearly 2 years. With his tuition my son went up from level C (at the start of GCSE subjects) to achieve grade 8 (A*) in his GCSE Spanish. Callum was able to structure the tuition as per my son`s need and we are very happy with the final grade. My son`s predicted grade was 7 and he got 8. I will highly recommend Callum. My son absolutely loved the tuition with him.

Mr Callum is a very punctual, pleasant, flexible and an excellent tutor who concerns and tailored his tutoring to the student.

We had him for last 4 months one to one tutoring for my year 8 son who has improved massively and became the highest score in his school in latest assessment. My son like him very much and attend his sessions in very relax manner.

I am glad that Mr Callum has a plan, explained to us how he would help my son to achieve his best in his GCSE.

Previously I had learnt a small amount of Spanish a number of years ago. Callum quickly established my level and has worked on from there. He has made learning interesting using my interests and work to give me the vocabulary and confidence to have a conversation in Spanish.

Callum is definitely a great teacher! My daughter and I love the way he teaches and gets straight to the point. We have never had an issue with him, he has been on time for two months straight. My daughter has learnt so much new vocabulary and has improved so much in French. I 100% recommend him he has been the best tutor for my daughter.

Callum is great. My 4 year old has a lesson with him for 30 minutes followed by a lesson for my wife & I. We have all come on leaps and bounds since we started. His method of teaching is very accessible and has allowed us to quickly pick things up that stick!

I left feedback for Callum when he first started with my son in 2015, under a year later my son achieved his Spanish A star GCSE! Callum has proved to be a brilliant Spanish tutor for my son.
When Callum first started my sons prediction for Spanish was a C grade.
Callum helped my son with his course work, helped him learn vocabulary and towards the exams really did plenty of revision in all aspects of Spanish reading, writing and listening. Callum helped with homework and coursework. He has plenty of knowledge of the different examination boards and the content of the exam.
Callum is very professional always smartly dressed, punctual and always came regularly. He is very friendly, very open to talk to and my son worked very well with him.
He will be missed and we will definatly use him again when our daughter starts to learn Spanish and French.

Thank you so much Callum!!!!

Callum has been hugely helpful to my son with his French studies. He has always been friendly, punctual and reliable. Both have got on really well through their sessions and my son has really enjoyed his teaching style. My son has used him for general revision and support with homework on an ongoing basis, as well as for GCSE exam revision. Callum has really helped my son with his language skills (reading/writing/spoken) and confidence with the subject. He has really helped to bring his scores up. We are hugely grateful to Callum for all the support he has given. Would definitely recommend.

Callum is great, he takes me through things step by step and never runs ahead or expects me to move on without full understanding. We recap throughout and he makes sure I am comfortable before moving on.
Always on time and, even when I had to reschedule very last minute, was very accommodating which is perfect.

Callum is an amazing spanish tutor, he is reliable and knows the GCSE syllabus very well. My son feels totally relaxed with him and throughly enjoys the lesson. Callum is also helping him with his controlled assesment for his speaking exam. He is extremly flexible and manages always to fit him in. My son wasn`t fond of Spanish but since Callum is tutoring him he had finally begun to enjoy the subject and is working his way to achieve his A star!
