Information about Tai

I am an extremely experienced tutor. I read English at Oxford University then trained as an actor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, before studying for an MA in Philosophy at King`s College London. I am currently reading for a PhD in Sociology at the University of Birmingham.

I have an open and friendly teaching style and tailor my approach to the needs of each student. As well as regularly tutoring for English GCSE and A-Level, I am also very experienced at preparing students for 11+ exams and entrance interviews.

Schools I have prepared students for include: Eton, Winchester, St. Paul`s, King`s College School in Wimbledon, Hampton, and Reed`s.


I was also the Artistic Director of a theatre company, and have regularly led workshops on drama and improvisation.

Previous student comments:

`Fantastic tutoring by Tai enabled my son to achieve top marks in his English Literature IGCSE.` - Anne

`Tai offered invaluable help and advice to my both my son and daughter through the 11 plus process. He developed their confidence in areas that needed consolidating and offered them practical tips and advice for interview. The sessions were always fun and both children looked forward to them. The lessons looked beyond the process too and were always intellectually stimulating.` - Alex

`My son`s confidence had slowly deteriorated over a period of two years in both English Language and Literature. Within two months, before the 2016 IGCSE exams, Tai patiently and skilfully built up my son`s confidence by going through past papers, showing him different techniques to answer questions and planning literature essays.` - Manisha

`My daughter went from an unclassified to an A in English language within 6 months - she really liked Tai and the way he explained everything and gently encouraged her. She is quite shy and does not like speaking out loud in class but her confidence grew as a result of one to one tutoring.` - Caroline

`Tai`s tutoring was invaluable as I prepared for my English Literature AS Level. His approach to tutoring made every lesson fascinating and thought-provoking with his help, I was able to get an A.` - Lara

`An outstanding tutor. Tai spent around 2 months tutoring my son so that he was prepped and able for his 11+ exams. He was patient and very clear when giving guidance and more importantly he was very encouraging when my son doubted himself. My son passed with flying colours and went in confident and fully prepared.` - Charlotte

`Tai has been an incredible help over the last few months. I highly recommend him to anyone studying English, I would have never felt so confident in Literature without his help!` - Georgina
