Tell me about some of your current students.
Most of my students in 2017 achieved grade 8 and 9 in English Language and Literature. A very large number of my current students are also expected to achieve these top grades.

Before the new grading system started, almost 80% of my students achieved grades A and A* in GCSE English Language and Literature.
Do you have a personal message for students?
I meticulously focus on the key skills tested in your exams through effective teaching, regular assessments, detailed marking and robust practice. These best teaching practices lift your learning spirit, enable you to become independent learners and take responsibility of your learning along with tutoring support.

You will attempt a large number of past and practice papers which will be throughly marked with detailed comments on the areas to focus and how to improve further.

After your papers are marked, you will also be given the model answers of past papers I have myself attempted to demonstrate the highest level of attainment that your parents and I expect from you.

With regular practice and assessments, continuous feedback and teaching of exam tips and techniques, you will make a very steady progress.
