Anthony (Tutor in Swindon)
Information about Anthony
I am an English Language and English Literature teacher who enjoyed teaching for over 18 years in a high-achieving Swindon Academy. I was rated Outstanding in June 2008 and September 2012 by OFSTED.
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 graades 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, Cambridge and EdExcel GCSE examination boards and have marked the 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 also externally mark the Cambridge O Level English Language exam for overseas students.

Feedback For Anthony (8)
Anthony was very accommodating to our needs and did lots of great prep and left us with some useful resources. Such a shame now that they can`t take their exams!
Anthony is a truly amazing teacher - my daughter`s words! He is very clear in making the information easy to understand and enjoyable. He is professional, friendly and has excellent communication as well as very knowledgeable on the subject. My daughter now feels very confident in English at GCSE and has helped her immensely. Highly recommended
Very supportive and understanding our son is enjoying working with Mr Anthony and seeing a difference already
Very helpful and encouraging tutor.
Anthony thoroughly helped me achieve a better grade in my A level English Literature. He explained and planned everything in fine detail as well as finding the correct assessment objectives. Overall, would highly recommend, he is easy to get on with and more importantly caters towards individual`s goals.
We are extremely pleased with our son`s English GCSE results. This is mainly due to all the hard work and effort put in by Anthony. He is a lovely, reliable tutor who has encouraged our son to do his best and we have seen the results. We would highly recommend Anthony to anyone seeking a wonderful tutor.
Thank you Anthony
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.
We are very impressed with Anthony who is tutoring our 13 year old son in English and Media.
He is very professional and enthusiastic.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Anthony.
