Information about Wayne

I am a freelance writer of fiction and literary criticism (published in The Guardian, Observer, Time Out, Tank, and international literary magazine, Wasafiri) and in 2013 I had my first book published by Transworld: Dedicated To... (a collection of inscri ptions found inside second-hand books) which received some very nice national press.

In 2018 I was shortlisted for the Comma Press and the University of Central Lancashire`s first annual Dinesh Allirajah Prize for Short Fiction. In 2017 I was longlisted for the Bare Fiction Short Story Award. I am currently compiling a literary anthology as well as writing a collection of short-stories. I also co-run the Tufnell Park Film Club.

I have a degree in English Literature from the University of East Anglia where I also studied Creative Writing.

Literature is my passion and I strongly believe it is best taught with enthusiasm, thereby making it accessible and less intimidating. Once a basic understanding of the work has been achieved it is easier to explore the more complex themes such as character, imagery, dramatic arc, etc.

Availability: I am freelance and so am able to be very flexible with my time.

Willing to travel: 10 miles

Experience: I have been tutoring since 2014. As well as editing and tutoring creative writing for mature students, I have tutored a wide range of English Literature texts for both OCR and AQA boards (GCSE and A-Level). I have a very wide knowledge of literature in general and am able to research new texts quickly and thoroughly.

Wayne is an excellent tutor. He comes to the lesson fully prepared after careful and thorough assessment of the students needs. Wayne is a likeable and affable tutor but also firm.

Wayne was super friendly, helpful and made my lessons fun whilst really helping my conversation skills. I was only in UK / London for 6 weeks but in this time I really wanted to better my conversation skill and my friends commented on already the development of this with me. So i thank Wayne so much for his help. I hope to be back next year and see him again!

Wayne is helping my daughter with her IGCSE English which she sits in the summer. I have been very pleased so far, Wayne is punctual and prepares thoroughly for each session. My daughter enjoys her sessions with him. Would recommend. Updated 12.09.2018: With Wayne`s help my daughter achieved an A* in her English Literature and an A in her English Language IGCSES.

Wayne helped me improve my creative writing. His detailed comments made me more aware of what it takes to write well. His recommendation of literature helped me become a better writer.
He is an outstanding tutor.

Wayne is impressively well-read, responsive, punctual, and attentive. I have found his comments on my work very useful. His book recommendations have been spot on. His genuine enthusiasm for writing and reading literature will rub off on any student he teaches, I am sure.
He comes highly recommended.

Wayne helped my son achieve a C grade within two terms of tutoring in GCSE English Literature, instead of an E grade prediction. (In fact he could have got B in Literature but I understand there were changes in grading this year!? My son`s English paper was a B! His writing and composition improved immensely and he was able to express himself much better in writing.
Wayne was flexible and accommodated changes we had to make due to my son`s school timetable near the exam period. Wayne is friendly and pleasant to talk to! I highly recommend him.

Amazing tutor that is very dedicated with his job. He has an amazing relationship with the children and makes them like what they are studying without getting bored or tired of what they are learning. He has helped me get A for Language and Literature in my GCSEs.
