Information about Gavin

Qualified and experienced, I have been teaching since 2002 and tutoring since 2006. My first degree is in English, which is my main subject, but I have also successfully delivered private tuition in subjects such as Study Skills (up to degree level), History, RE, Army Entrance Exams, and Creative Writing, to learners ranging between primary school age and adult. I also have experience of working with learners with special educational needs (SEN) and behavioural problems.

Availability: I am available on weekday evenings.

Willing to travel: 5 miles

Experience: I have been tutoring one to one for sixteen years, although I began teaching in colleges in 2002 and I have also worked in secondary schools. My roles have included lecturing in subjects that include GCSE English, Basic Skills, and Creative Writing. I also have experience of learning support. I am friendly and supportive, working to increase my students` confidence and understanding of the subject by focusing on vital areas such as exam technique, identifying weak areas and targeting them. Under my tutelage they frequently make vast improvements, as can be seen from my feedback.

DBS Check: Yes

5/5 Rating

Been working with Gavin for a decent amount of time, and I can easily say that the sessions have permitted me to feel for confident with both English Language and English Literature. One thing which I really enjoy about the lessons is the freedom which you are given, as you are able to choose what to do each time. Also, Gavin`s ability to explain some of the more complicated concepts, which I had not been able to understand through several lessons in school, is great. Some of the interpretations and context which he has taught me for the texts which I study for Literature are also amazing. I truly recommend Gavin to anyone who is aiming for a higher grade!
