Information about Will

***LIMITED AVAILABILITY - SPACE FOR ONE MORE INDIVIDUAL STUDENT - FULLY BOOKED FOR GROUPS FOR EASTER AND SUMMER 2021 (50% DISCOUNT FOR 2-4 STUDENTS AND 75% FOR 5-12 STUDENTS)***

Unlike most tutors, I am a fully qualified teacher with thousands of hours of classroom experience, including nine years at Eton College, where I examined entrance tests.

I have been teaching since 2004, including from 2010-2012 at Highgate School and from 2012-2020 at Eton College. At Eton, I marked the entrance exams and was also Head of the English at University Summer School, helping students prepare for Oxbridge entry.

After winning a scholarship to Ipswich School, I went on to score 99% for a Distinction in my Advanced Extension Award in English and 3 A grades at A-level in English, History and Classics, all over 90%. I then graduated with a First from University College London in 2007 (when it was ranked first for English), achieving 95% for my dissertation on 19th-century American literature.

Availability: Currently, I only have space for one more student.

Willing to travel: Home Only

Experience: My experience with a wide range of students at leading schools and tutoring agencies means I help you give examiners exactly what they`re looking for. My students have won places to Oxford, Cambridge and other leading universities, as well as scholarships to Westminster and similar schools.

But I also hope to inspire a love of literature: as the great Harvard humanist literary scholar W. J. Bate put it, `the subject matter - the world`s great literature - is unrivalled.` Exams are important, but they are not the ultimate end of studying literature. Improved understanding ultimately aims at deeper appreciation and greater enjoyment.
