I was a secondary school teacher in Winchester for 31 years and loved every minute of it! I have recently finished working for myself as a consultant in the City of London. I am now taking on occasional supply work throughout Hampshire
I regard myself as a successful teacher who has an excellent relationship with all students - of both sexes - who I have taught.
I have worked extensively on developing a range of teaching and learning styles and skills and am confident that I can engage with children and young people easily and instantly.
I am a passionate guitar player and performer(!) enjoying a wide range of music. I can talk for England about football, rugby and cricket.
I hold a current DBS check (formerly CRB)

review(s) for John.
We have found John to be very friendly, patient, proffessional and flexible. My daughter feels that she is definately benefiting from his help.
John is a very nice and responsible tutor. We will recommend him to who need the English help.
John was perfect for my son. He quickly found shared interests which ensured that my son enjoyed his tutor lessons. Then he gently taught my son how to revise and how to perform in an exam. The outcome was a move from D and E grades to A, B and C grades in History and English GCSEs.
Very prepared Teacher, pleasant person and very understandable towards teen age student. I could not more pleased. Highly recommended
