Information about Anthony

As an experienced online and one on one English Language and English Literature teacher, I have enjoyed teaching for over two decades in a high-achieving Swindon Academy and as a personal tutor. I was rated Outstanding in June 2008 and September 2012 by OFSTED.

I am very happy to tutor remotely via Skype, Zoom, What’s App or FaceTime. I simply email resources to the tutee beforehand (usually a detailed PowerPoint) and refer to these throughout the lesson. Parents and students then have their own copy for revision.

I have taught male and female students aged 11 - 18 and have achieved success with all abilities. My results have always been excellent, consistently adding value to predicted grades and levels in KS3, KS4 and A Level.

Since retiring from the classroom, I have enjoyed successfully tutoring individual students since 2014. I am always praised by parents for the intricate preparation of each lesson, the engaging delivery and for the detailed marking of homework, which I always reflect upon with the student to further enrich their learning.

In addition, I have always been a very popular teacher with all students, always able to quickly connect with each learner. I like to identify the learning needs of the student by firstly looking at examples of work then addressing areas that need intervention by short, enjoyable activities that enable me to give instant feedback to both the parent and the student.

I have a very detailed knowledge of the AQA, Eduqas, OCR, Cambridge and EdExcel/International Edexcel GCSE examination boards and have externally marked the AQA English Language Paper One for the past three years, so I have a very detailed knowledge of what the board are looking for in order to achieve full marks. I have also externally marked the AQA Paper 2.

I also externally mark the Cambridge O Level English Language exam for overseas students, as well as the International Edexcel GCSE for several students in UAE.

Anthony is a fantastic tutor to my son who is studying for an English Language GCSE retake in the Autumn. Anthony is a very organised and engaging tutor and my son has definitely improved his English skills since studying with him. We appreciate Anthony`s specialist skills and he puts in so much effort when planning each lesson and providing feedback for my son afterwards. We are delighted to have found Anthony on the Tutor Hunt website over the Summer and would highly recommend him.

I would thoroughly recommend Anthony Wallace as an English tutor. He has prepared my son for his "GCSE English" exam and vastly improved his confidence, knowledge and prospects of getting a good grade. He is a friendly and pleasant person who makes the lesson an enjoyable experience. He fully utilities the time, providing the student with a good understanding of what is expected of them in the exam and how to approach questions to gain maximum marks. He has improved my son`s enjoyment of the subject, as well as his ability. Mr Wallace often goes beyond the call of duty, marking exams in his own time, for example, in preparation for the lesson.
